How much effort are you investing in your dreams?

how much effort are you putting into your business

I often get emails from women in biz who have questions like: “I am looking for new, cheap ways to spread the word about my biz, any ideas?” or “I have never felt like much of a salesperson, any ideas for making more sales?” or “I know I need to invest in _______ (my website/newsletter/branding/SEO/whatever) but I can’t afford it. Any ideas?”

I have this idea, but what do I do next?

I get a lot of emails from mums who either want to start a home business or they have a home business and want to expand it, try a new product or service, or even start a new side biz. They all seem to have some variation of the same question: “I have this idea, but what do I do next?”

Financial New Year is the perfect time to consider your brand

At this time of year we tend to be focused on organizing our business accounts, looking through our costs & profits, and of course getting everything sorted for our taxes. As you go through your accounts and your records for the financial year of your business, I want you to keep something else in mind: your brand.

An Important Reminder for all WAHP!
