I define myself as a micro business owner.
I’m too tiny to be a small business (yep it’s just me).
And although I’m a “mumpreneur” by definition, I just never felt comfortable inside that word.
In comparison, micro business nails it. And so I’ve joined forces with Jo Waltham – at Magenta Sky Solutions to launch the Micro Business Hub. More on that shortly.
It’s cool to be a micro business…
I love the word and I love the concept.
It’s that idea of a whole business crammed up into just one person! (or if you’re a bit bigger possibly a few people). Put like that, micro becomes a pretty powerful concept.
And it’s no easy task being micro. You end up juggling a multitude of tasks. Jobs like marketing, selling, customer service, bookkeeping, admin etc.
You may even extend your tiny operation and outsource to gain the specific skills you require.
As a micro business owner YOU are the face of your business.
At times that can be pretty scary…
But on the other hand, it’s an incredibly exciting and freeing place to be.
Before setting up Gem Writing, I was “persuading” in the classroom. I loved it, but I always felt frustrated at the lack of control. I had ideas but couldn’t deliver them because of the constraints of working for someone else.
I don’t have that problem anymore.
Instead I have the absolute freedom to create and drive my business in any direction I choose. And because I’ve only got myself to answer to, I can adapt and flex to respond immediately to situations that crop up.
What’s more I get to connect with brilliant people who inspire and motivate me.
And I’m always learning.
In business you must learn, create, connect and succeed…
I’ve really come to appreciate the degree to which I’m inspired, motivated, confident and innovative totally impacts on my business.
When I’m on form I’m unstoppable. But if I’m having a wobble or things aren’t panning out as planned, I get a bit stuck.
It occurred to me that the quality of what surrounds me (what feeds my brain and my soul) affects my copywriting, blogging and my business.
I found if you surround and nurture yourself with quality information and ideas, it somehow boosts your chances of staying resilient and creating something amazing.
So how about an easy way of achieving that…
