Do you wish you had a magical unicorn who could just make your life easier?
A big dream for many small business owners is going from doing absolutely everything in your business to having the right person to delegate to.
What if I told you I know the person who will make that dream come true? And she’s local!!!!
Michelle Broadbent works with a number of the women in our spaces and they all absolutely rave about her talents. She’s the guru of practical tips on overcoming overwhelm, streamlining your systems and implementing smart strategies. And she has just launched a new program to help you find the right person to support you in your business, it’s called Finding Unicorns. I asked Mich a few questions about her business:
Q: WHAT DO YOU DO? I provide female small and micro-business owners with strategic, practical solutions to help them overcome the challenges of running a business alone.
Q: THE BEST LESSON I’VE LEARNED IS:
The learning is in the doing. You can read all the books, do all the courses, listen to all the podcasts and consume the vast quantities of information out there but the only way to truly learn is by taking action. It’s also the scariest option but the biggest rewards come to us when we take action.
Q: IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY (LIKE $10M), WOULD YOU STILL COME TO WORK? WHY/WHY NOT?
Yes I would (though probably not as frequently). I can’t not do what I am doing, there are too many people to support. I love the idea of being able to help people who wouldn’t ordinarily have the money to pay for support in their businesses and I could do this comfortably with all that $$.
Q: WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE STARTING A SMALL BUSINESS?
Quieten all the noise and then ask yourself “what do I want to do with my life?”. It is so easy to get caught up in the romanticised idea of what running a business is but if you lived in a bubble, would you still want to do it? Would you really want to do the thing you think that it is that you want to do? Running a business is no joke – there are much easier ways to earn a living. You need to want to do what you do more than anything else because it will consume you. On the practical side, make sure you have enough money to live off for at least 6 months while you build.
Q: CAN YOU TELL ME A BIT MORE ABOUT ‘FINDING UNICORNS’?
If you are struggling to find the time to do all the things you want and need to do to bring your business dreams to life, I made Finding Unicorns for you. A unicorn is a magical person who makes your life easier. They can do things better and quicker than you. They genuinely care about the success of your business, making you wonder what you ever did without them. After recruiting literally hundred of ‘unicorns’, I realised I wanted to make it less scary for other women by showing you exactly how and where to find one and what to do to keep them. I am so excited for the women who have joined this course already – I know we’re about to transform their businesses, and their lives. Finding Unicorns starts on 30 June – join here.
