Small Business, BIG Results!

Friday 19 July 2019, 10:00 am4:00 pm

A one day workshop with Mel Larsen, The Dream Project Coach
at The Poetry Café – just 3 minutes walk from Covent Garden.
“Are you getting the results you want for your small business or freelance career?”
…are you getting them fast enough?
When you dream of building your business it is beyond frustrating not to get the results you want. It’s even worse when you just can’t work out what’s missing.
Do you have a BIG dream but wonder how on earth you are going to move your business forward? Or maybe you started out strong but everything has sloooowed down. Or maybe you’ve just realized you are kinda bumbling along and it’s time you started to make plans and take this ‘working for myself thing’ a bit more seriously.
Building a small business or a freelance career can take so much time, money and effort it’s all too easy to forget to stop, reflect and plan. It’s dangerously easy to forget to pause and re-connect with the passion that got you started in the first place.
Do you have #BigMojoEnergy?
Nobody seems to know exactly what a mojo is but we all like having one and we definitely know when it’s not there anymore.
Being in a mojo-less state is painful, hard-work and even embarrassing.
It’s time to get your mojo working again
Do you have the right mindset?
How did I go from being a depressed supermarket checkout girl to an in-demand international business coach, trainer and consultant? When I think about the amazing journey I have taken, I have to pinch myself.
Earlier this year I was training cultural professionals in five different cities across Russia – seeing Siberia where it was minus 28 degrees was truly amazing! My work has also taken me across the world to places such as The Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Scandinavia as well as across the UK.
I’ve definitely earned these opportunities through putting in the hours but I also see them as a gift that I never take for granted. I had to change my mindset to make it happen and knowing how to do that is the gift. Getting into the right mindset has enabled me to find time to enjoy life and contribute to society as well as growing my income and profile. As well as coaching I love painting and I’ve also founded three different community-led festivals that benefit my local area.
And how are your Marketing and Money moves?
Mindset isn’t enough on it own. You also need to have a strategy for success. I love to share what I have experienced and learned as I too, continue to learn and grow. There are lots of tips and ideas that help a business grow more quickly.
What’s on offer?
In this enjoyable, nurturing and engaging workshop you will:
• Create a powerful heart-felt Vision for your small business that re-ignites your passion and keeps it alive over the journey
• Get clear on at least one major Goal that is important to you so you get laser focused on what you want
• Work out what you need to focus on strategically to move forward – quickly identify what’s missing and what to do about it action-wise.
You’ll also learn the 7 common mistakes I find most small business owners routinely make. I’ll give you a simple way of making sure you can avoid them too.
Who is this day for?
“I would recommend Mel to absolutely everyone from a start up operator to a chief executive. Her ability to help you find your power and guide you out of the woods is her unique gift” – Trudy Lister, Trudy Lister PR
This day is designed for freelancers, small biz owners and entrepreneurs with a Dream. As a coach I tend to attract successful people who have a creative and caring approach to life and want to take their business to the next level.
I’ve coached people who are yoga instructors, consultants, artists, property developers, writers, digital entrepreneurs, shops and cafes, accountants, and charities. They all got great results. What they all have in common is that they were ready to move to a whole new level of success. Even if they were scared, failing at the time, already busy or struggling on a low budget…BUT… they were ready to try something new, to give it a go.
“Would I recommend Mel? OMG yes yes yes!!! I’m coming back for more….. no stopping us now” – Madia Rashid, Physio4Me
“Why would I recommend Mel as a Coach? My answer is simple: results, results, results!” – Donald Seepaul, Graphic Designer/PrintItOnline
As long as you have a dream that you care about and you are willing to review your thinking and your strategic approach and actions, this day will support you in moving forward.
What is the delivery style?
“An impeccably planned, creatively delivered day of reflection which creates a safe space for all personalities to express their dreams and goals” – Rebecca Trevalyan, Library of Things
