“We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”

Everything You Need To Start A Business
Do you want to start a business and would love to have the concrete strategies, accountability and coaching to do it?
You’ve achieved many things in your life, met challenges, maybe brought up a family so you’re not keen to be told what to do. But you know it makes sense to find out as much as you can before you begin anything.
Don’t hide your head in the sand.
Starting your own business has you feeling fearful AND stimulated. That’s what excitement is! Businesses fail for many reasons but in the first year it’s mainly because the owners don’t understand that they must do what they take pleasure in AS WELL AS what they don’t. These activities are ALL keys to success.
Did you know that most people don’t have a focus or a business plan?
The successful ones do. Do you watch Dragons’ Den or Shark Tank on TV? Would be entrepreneurs pitch their product or service to five financially successful people. What sets the presenters who get a “deal” apart from those who are sent away? They know what they sell, can communicate it succinctly, and have a business plan. And oh yes – they are confident and it shows – people want to buy from them and work with them.
“As a trainer Trudy opened my eyes to unimagined possibilities for me and my business. As a result of her marketing expertise and enthusiasm, I was motivated and inspired to make far-reaching changes. As an Aboriginal single mother with a revolutionary business idea, I appreciated her personalized, results focused consultations. When I met Trudy, I was looking for hope and solid solutions. And that’s exactly what I got. I was able to turn what I love into a full-time business that is now flourishing, and I’ve never been happier.” Chi Meegwetch / Thank You so very much.
