Guys this is the little presentation I gave at Grill48 in Dunfermline- RACHEL THOMSON TALKS BUSINESS: http://youtu.be/tgqmc6hdva8
The weather today is actually gorgeous here. I always feel inspired and happy when the sun is shining and it’s even kinda warm today too! Brilliant!
I’m working on my video pitch for the San Francisco Summit competition. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a competition where five businesses will be taken to San Francisco for a week of inspiration! There are meetings with some of the worlds biggest names in business and I really cannot think of a better opportunity for entrepreneurs! To enter you have to make a 30-second video pitch explaining why you should get to go and then the successful ones are shortlisted etc, etc. I have a really quirky idea for mine because believe it or not it is very difficult to explain much in 30 seconds.
I’m also part of a business tracking group where we meet up every month or so to discuss our goals and set targets, then we are there to give each other a kick on the backside to make sure that we are achieving as much as we can. I have noticed that my attitude and productivity have improved wildly. It’s GREAT!
Right. I really need to get on with this. The competition deadline is two weeks away and as usual I am being just a little over-ambitious… but I can do it!!
Firstly, a big thanks to Bruce Walker and his team for having me at their Launch Party last night. It went really well and I had the chance to meet some amazing people!
I now have a focus. I have goals with deadlines and I feel excited.
Today outside the gallery there is a bike rally type thing going on where people are doing crazy cycle stunts and racing each other. It didn’t inspire me to hop on a bike any time soon but it had started me thinking about being braver! It only takes one moment of crazy courage to get the adrenaline pumping and then you’ve nothing to fear.
Now… time to get a move on. Nearly there.
I have two speaking opportunities coming up! This Friday I will be speaking at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh to celebrate the Launch of the San Francisco Summit competition! Also, the following Wednesday I will be delivering a small presentation for Dunfermline Talks Business.
Things are getting exciting. Now…what to wear?!?!
Sorry for the lack of posting, things have been getting really busy for me recently. It’s great! I have designed a logo and it is based on the cirlce of infinite possibilities. I have designated a meaning for each arrow too so that my logo has a personal meaning for me but also so that I have a cool story to tell people if they ask about the logo. People love stories. I think it’s lovely and I will post a picture as soon as I have a final design because it’s one thing having a great idea and some rough sketches but it’s another thing to actually make it appear on paper the way i see it in my imagination… BUT I love to draw so all should be fine.
I’m looking into getting some t-shirts printed with a kind of promotional design to get people talking about what I’m doing so that there is a buzz of excitement and energy in time for the website to be launched and subsequently, THE BUSINESS!
I hope to drive you all to pay more attention to my facebook page too.. *hint hint*
Cheers for now, busy busy busy!
