Sorry about the lack of posts around here. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t put my camera down, although I have taken a lot less photos. I’ve just been busy with other things, in the computer world it’s been working on revising my Dolcetto Designs website. I can’t believe how much work it’s been and I’m not even finished. Hopefully a couple of full work days will be enough to bring the new site live. I am really trying to make an effort to grow my business, making it more sustainable with my lifestyle (wife and mother to three kids), profitable and user friendly. So I’ve taken some calculated risks and look forward to what the future holds.
I’ve thought about how wonderful it would be to form a little group with a few other like minded small business owners for a long time but have never got around to making it happen. This seems like as good a time as any. I am looking for a few other small business owners that would be interested in collaborating from time to time, sharing expertise/ wisdom, be willing to critique each other (and be critiqued). Ideally, we would all have a business where having a strong web presence is incredibly important. It doesn’t matter where we live. Ultimately, we would be available to each to each other to help grow each other’s business’s. I have always held the belief that we as people are better as a team. One of the biggest challenges with having a small business is that there is very little sense of team and collaboration. Yes, my husband is a great ear to hear my ideas and give me feedback, however it’s not as effective as a group of likeminded business owners would be.
So, this is for you if… You’re willing to be vulnerable, you don’t already think that you have the most awesome business with nothing that could be changed/ improved, are able to give and receive constructive criticism, appreciate true honesty balanced with positive affirmation, would like to offer and receive marketing ideas, are interested in sharing and caring and value team collaboration. If you’ve been meaning to make some changes to your business/ website and don’t really know where to begin or feel overwhelmed by where to start, this would be a great place to begin.
This is not for you if… you’re just thinking of starting a small business. This is for people that have already started their business but are possibly in a rut or recognize that they need a boost in making some changes. Or just want to make things even better. I am also looking for others that don’t have the exact same type of photo card business.
Being in the midst of making some fairly major changes to my business/ website, I would love to get some feedback from others and in turn help others on the road to success. While being a small business owner has its fair share of difficulties, I have loved the experience and found it incredibly rewarding.
So, if you’re interested pop me an email at email@example.com with your name, type of business and website address. I am looking for 2-4 people. Please feel free to share this post with anyone that you think may be interested.
And because no post is complete without a photo…
I seriously have way too many photos that I haven’t even posted here in the past months, especially travel photos.
