It’s been a little while since I have posted and for that I apologise.
I have recently had this really strong feeling that there is something I could be doing right now other than everything which currently occupies my time. I haven’t exactly discovered what that thing is yet but it has encouraged me to try a new approach to business.
So far I have managed to prioritise my time better so that I am more efficient and actually get things done instead of finding lots of other non-important things to do. (Which means that I finally did laundry and made a start on my Philosophy essay!)
Currently I’m writing the OFFICIAL mission statement for Sense Of Self as it’s one thing to have a really great idea and a fab ethos but the important thing is to have it written down and saved everywhere so that I can hand it out left, right and centre until people start taking notice!!
I even have an action plan that will take me right up to Christmas (oh goodness, it really IS that time already…) but then things will snowball into next year and maybe people will start to see a change in their every day lives.
Although I am getting good at posting really interesting things on the Facebook page so you should definitely check that out 🙂
Have you ever taken a selfie? Well this competition is for you! More details at http://www.sense-of-self.co.uk/competitions.html
Well well well, things are certainly getting exciting around here! I have been arranging things and having meetings like they’re going out of fashion. (I love it) I really enjoy being busy and always having something to do. I admit it does take me a while to motivate myself sometimes but once I’m started…WOW
I’m having a productive day business-wise and I’m creating a small survey. The word ‘survey’ isn’t one I delight in using as I know when somebody even mentions a survey to me all I can think about is standing in the freezing cold answering eighty-billion questions and stressing about the time because I actually have somewhere else to be. So, I am making a survey, yes, but it will be absolutely nothing like that. Hopefully just a handful of questions with quick answers that will give me some proof of market research. It’s all fine and well for me to ask my friends what they think or to use my initiative (being a teenager myself) but anybody that will be able to help me in business is going to need actual evidence of real market research. Hopefully I can have them ready by next week so I can start researching on my days off. (Still working at the gallery, still loving it)
All I need right now is the little things to fit together and then I shall be ready to actually accept all the prize-package help and… START A BUSINESS!!!
If you (yes YOU) could help me out that would be awesome. I’d love to know what you think of my business idea and where you think it would work best? (online, in it’s own shop, in other high-street shops…etc) Oh oh oh, and, any advice on how to boost the attention online would be much appreciated? My wee facebook page is great but I’m still striving to break into the 100’s for likes but trying not to post too often where people hide me in their newsfeed. (That wouldn’t be good)
Very exciting times ahead and I hope to hear from some of you soon!
Check out our new page for music! I made a playlist of upbeat songs to inspire you all and help you feel creative. There are some fab ones!
I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I won Young Entrepreneur of the Year. Tomorrow is the final again and I am REALLY looking forward to hearing all the new ideas. I have a new design printed to wear and I’m going to urge everyone to LIKE SENSE OF SELF ON FACEBOOK if you want to see it. Please. The page has 73 likes, which is nice, but not enough!!!
I am ready to go forward into 2014 and accept the prize and start my business! I’m so excited but actually quite terrified too.
My plan for today is to organise all my bits a pieces in a folder and write out final drafts of my mission statement and business plan and such like. And make time to read of course. Must have time to read. I am going to need to really be strict with my time and be well.organised as I start back at the gallery this Thursday. (my summer contract finished but something has come up and they wanted me)
So I shall be working hard and get into a routine- how very grown up…AHHH!
Getting close to Christmas too 🙂
Like Sense Of Self on Facebook!!
