I always have time to listen to an entrepreneur and I find the world of business fascinating so when the opportunity arose to listen to a local entrepreneur I jumped at the chance. I must be honest and say that I hadn’t heard of either Diva cosmetics or Emma Wimhurst but my immediate reaction to Emma was what determination, courage and total self belief she had. In talking to us all further, her honesty, integrity, and down to earthiness shone through allowing all of us to relate in part to her and her life .
The time spent with Emma was constructive and informative, her book BOOM offers sound practical advice and any company following Emma’s 7 business disciplines will see results quickly. We concentrated on a companies’ Vision Statement where she helped us to focus on what our company was about and what our main focus was. By creating our own clear business strategies and personal habits we can all achieve her Boom factor and ongoing success.
Emma was motivational, insightful and thought provoking to say the least and her book is easy to read and understand . I and my business partner are now in the process of creating our own vision statement and have created several versions... our only trouble is choosing which one we prefer..

Make your Business BOOM! in 2010
Working for yourself can be a very lonely place can’t it?
Being employed simply means that there is someone above you to motivate you, to delegate to you and to provide feedback on a regular basis. Perhaps not always positive but hopefully always constructive!
This doesn’t happen when you are working on your own – feedback is not so free flowing – and sometimes you are left to your own devices to decide whether what you are doing is right, well received or in the right direction. So when you do receive feedback it is so exhilarating, isn’t it?
Last week I delivered a 2-hour workshop for Networking Mummies in Dorset – and it was so rewarding to read the Facebook comments and the individual emails about how they had found the two hours so inspirational, motivational and practical. It made all the effort and preparation truly worthwhile so thank you.
BUSINESS BYTE TAKEAWAY
Is there a business or individual who has recently provided you with outstanding service or where you have discovered a product which has transformed a part of your life? Would it take more than 5 minutes to provide a little feedback? Probably not, and yet it will provide reassurance, renewed self-belief and motivation – so it has got to be worth the effort. Surely?
Who can you motivate today?
