So I have been away for aaaages. Blogging id HARD! I have a new found respect for those who post regularly. Anyway, I want to do better this year. I’m going to put aside some time a week so I can sent out short, update posts.
So where am I now on my journey to the top? A lot has happened this year and business if FINALLY picking up. All it took was one leap of faith and everything began to change. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned my line of work before, well I run a tuition centre, teaching maths, English and 11+. During February half term, a parent pleaded with me to run a “half term programme” because her child really needed the extra lessons. I thought about it and sent out a few emails to see if there would be any takers, well a week before the programme was to start no one had indicated an interest so I went to bed one night saying to myself that “tomorrow, I’m gonna cancel it” I made a memo reminding myself to email the venue I hire out, to cancel my booking.
The next morning I woke up to the most random text, a parent who had not shown any significant interest in my services in the past, asked “am I still going to run the programme I advertised?” I was so surprised. I told my parents what my initial plans were prior to the text and asked what they thought I should do now. They said just do it, run the programme. AAAHHHH!! This was going to be risky, OK, I just went for it! BOY am I glad I did, it ended up being a catalyst. One parent signed up for it after hearing about it and was so impressed that she told her friends about my services who told their friends and now here I am looking to hire more staff. All this in just 3 weeks. The turnaround has been truly phenomenal.
There’s still a long long way to go but the pace that I’m moving at is like 100 times the speed I was moving at before. I shared this to show that all it takes is one customer, one success story, one moment, to change it all around for you. So to my hustling entrepreneurs out there don’t give up, hang in there a little longer, oh and don’t forget to take a leap of faith when the opportunity presents itself, and you might just find that you can fly!
That’s it from me.
Peace out and Keep Gettin’ It!
