I am not one of those people who attends courses and seminars all the time, writing copious notes and then filing them never to look back at what inspired me to put pen to paper.
But when I do attend something I make sure it is going to be worthwhile. After all as a business owner my time is money. I attended one such workshop last weekend and left inspired to be better for myself and my business. It was Janet Beckers’ Wonderful Web Seminars Quick Start Event – Turn Your Passions into Passive Income.
I’ve been thinking about writing a book on starting a business with a baby for about a year now, but had struggled with how to start. The project seemed a huge ask when combined with my business and family duties so, while the book plan had been on my ‘to do’ list for a long time, I hadn’t got any further than thinking about what to do and telling friends and family about it. This course was so fantastic that I now have the clarity I need to get started on the book, do the research, find the experts I need to interview and write it. Then I’ll just need to find a publisher, but that’s a whole other story!
While feeding off Janet’s inspirational ideas, I met a wonderful group of business people who came from the Central Coast (where I live and work), Newcastle, Sydney, western NSW, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. We all left feeling like we could tackle the world. Look at what some of the other attendees said:
“There was just so much useful information packed in a one-day seminar. It gave me the confidence to take action to create a product in the next week.” Yee Wah Choong (Younigne Business, Aequitas Attorneys)
“Fabulous. Given me amazing confidence to progress forward and understanding in simple succinct successful terms.” Vanessa Smith (www.allempowered.com)
“The event was much better than any other I’ve been to in terms of honesty about what I would get from the day.” Lenore Miller (www.outrageouslyhealthy.com)
“It was good of Janet to spend time with almost everyone in the room. A nice touch but I think very reflective of who she is as a person.” Anthony Venn-Brown (www.anthonyvennbrown.com.au)
So watch this space and I’ll let you know when the book is written!
