When I made that move from my full-time, paycheque 9 to 5 job to an entrepreneur/business owner world I felt alone and lost.
This was a world I wasn't used to, so I started to reach out to groups and organizations where experienced business owners, entrepreneurs, and business people would meet on a regular basis and talk about their industry, field of expertise, experience, and their highs and lows.
I initially turned up in a mish-mash of clothes with conflicting colors and long hair, I felt uncomfortable, out of place, some people laughed at me, others turned away, as I just didn't look or speak the part. The words that they spoke seemed alien to me but I just listened, laugh when others laughed, drank when others drank, and slowly felt comfortable in the new environment I was in.
I slowly found my voice by joining other business groups that wanted to hear your voice and gave me the opportunity each week to present myself and my company, the more I did it the more I became confident in myself. It made me look at how I looked and how I presented myself and the company. It was a work in progress.
By networking, I gained business colleagues who then introduced me to a wider network that grew and grew.
So how are you turning up to the base camp and the campfire, do you feel out of place, lost for words, uncomfortable in the way you look, the way you present yourself?
Allow me to greet you at base camp, show you around, introduce you to the right people and get you ready to sit around the campfire and present yourself in confidence.
I look forward to meeting you.
