Last Spring, I participated in the Start Smart program at BizWorks Center. Then, I worked through the program as a brand new entrepreneur and I blogged as the “Imbedded Mogul”. Yesterday I was asked to be a presenter at the graduation ceremony of the 2nd Start Smart class, to which I responded, “Me? Are you serious?” And, now – here I am.
Since I gave my pitch deck speech in June, I have already meet the goals I set for myself and now have clients based in four different states [which has be a great progression in my startup]. However, I continue to learn about customer service, creating better content, improving my business practices, time management and expanding my client base… still very much a start up.
So, what do I say to other moguls in a similar stage that I am in and encourage them to keep going, start learning and stay smart about their businesses? Well… with a background in teaching, I couldn’t help but use something somewhat elementary, an acrostic. It was pretty funny when I expressed that I would be speaking “using an acrostic for the word ‘entrepreneurship’.” There were definitely a few that squirmed in theirs seats thinking it was going to be a LONG night. HA!
After presenting my acrostic for the word “MOGUL”, I thought I would share what I wrote with you. I don’t think I particularly wrote anything that has never been thought or written before, but maybe a thought will inspire you where you are. Or, share it with an entrepreneur that could use some encouragement.
As always, thanks for following The Social Market!!
