Join My FREE “Booming Businesses” Mentoring Group

For a few years now I have been helping new entrepreneurs get started in business. I have helped people to overcome their initial fears of becoming a business owner, to sort out their social media headache, to help them build websites and to find lots and lots of free tools that will help them achieve what they are trying to do in their businesses.

I was asked repeatedly if there was a way of getting some continued support once they had completed workshops with me or had completed their one to one coaching course.

I knew that I had only achieved as much as I had in such a short amount of time because of the help and support that I had received from a fantastic community of people that I joined as part of a my mentoring programme. I wanted to be able to do the same now for my students and clients.

And so, with this in mind I have created my brand new “Booming Businesses” mentoring group. Are you thinking about starting a business yourself? Are you looking for some help and guidance along the way? Have you been in business for a while and are finding it hard to break through that self-imposed ceiling? If so then come and join me and other entrepreneurs in my new Facebook group “Booming Businesses“.

It’s completely FREE and gives you lots of tips, tricks, tools and techniques to keep you going and keep you motivated. You can also talk to other members and ask questions and get help. There are weekly tutorials and many other helpful and supportive videos. I look forward to meeting you and will see you in there!

How To Add A Logo To Your Theme Using The URL

If you are using a more advanced theme then you will be asked to insert the URL of your logo into the control panel of your theme builder.

Your logo can be in png or jpeg format and it is really simple to do. I have used my theme as as example but most themes will be similar enough for you to figure out the gist of it.

First of all, go to your menu and hover over Appearance. Then open up your theme’s options as shown below in blue. My theme is called MyProduct but yours will be the name of your theme followed by theme options.

Why We Put Off Starting a Business

ponderingWhy we put off starting a business can be down to a number of factors. I have spent the last couple of years helping people to become self-employed or start their own business and these are some of the things they told me had put them off starting.

Fear of leaving their current “safe” employment.

The security that employment offers is a strong motivator to stay put. Knowing exactly how much we are going to pick up each month gives us a warm and safe feeling. We feel secure. Our families feel secure.

The reality is though, that today there is no longer such a thing as a job for life. People are being made redundant from all walks of life and those that are not made redundant then have to do the work that those who have been made redundant used to do. More staff are taking time off due to stress related issues now than at any other time.
