“THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to answer my questions says Tina.

I have read a couple of the ‘Secrets of’ books, but will also grab the new one. I will order the books you mentioned, so if you do have some others you rate highly would love to hear about it. You can never have enough books I say!

You’re a smart lady and I would love if we could stay in touch (I promise I won’t stalk you! Ha ha). That coffee would be great some time too.”

The questions: answered by the Entreprenurial Mother…

My goodness; there’s a whole book waiting to be written right there in your questions!!
Nevertheless I can send you to a number of places to get great information to assist you on your way.

Based on your questions, I think it would be worth you buying “Secrets of Inspiring Women Exposed“. I’m sure many of the stories, mine included, will assist your thinking.

I would also recommend that you visit www.theentrepreneurialmother.com.au
There are is much to read and tools to use.
I would also suggest you read and subscribe to the blog
www.theentrepreneurialmother.com.au/blog as there is always content being
added pertinent to your line of questioning.

1. Did you find yourself having to work another job in the early days?
I HAVE ALWAYS DONE MY OWN CONSULTING WORK, AND WHEN I STARTED aCE talentNET, IT WAS NO DIFFERENT. IN FACT, I STILL DO SOME TODAY.

How long did it take to build your business up to full-time?
THIS IS A CATCH 22 REALLY. IF YOU DON’T PUT IN THE HOURS, IT WILL TAKE A LOT LONGER. IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO DO SO THEN IT WILL TAKE LONGER THAN YOU THINK. IT PROBABLY TOOK ME A COUPLE OF YEARS.

2. What are some of your favourite business/motivational books (if you are into them)?
IN THE BOOK, I HAVE LISTED THE FOLLOWING:
“Being the insatiable reader that I am, and having the library of books that I do, choosing only five is very difficult.
. The Power of One – Bryce Courtney
. Emotional Capitalists – Dr Martyn Newman
. If you want to be Rich and Happy, Don’t go to School – Robert Kiyosaki
. Re-imagine! and The Essentials – Tom Peters
. Free Agent Nation – Daniel Pink”

3. What is the best advice you can give in respect to managing cash flow (think back to your early days)?
READ ROBERT KIYOSAKI’S “GUIDE TO INVESTING”, MOST PARTICULARLY PART THREE (p237)… EXCELLENT PLACE TO START.

4. Can you provide me with your thoughts on the Radiance concept and our website www.radiancebytina.com
WEB SITE IS GREAT… YOUR OFFERING REMINDS ME OF A WORKSHOP I USED TO RUN FOR AUSTRALIS CALLED “SELF MADE GIRL”… (I’M SURE IF YOU GOOGLED IT, THERE WOULD STILL BE INFORMATION AROUND)…

I AM A LITTLE CONFUSED AS TO WHO YOUR AUDIENCE IS, IE THE DEMOGRAPHIC OF YOUR CLIENTS. MAYBE IT NEEDS TO BE IN TWO PARTS, IE ONE FOR STUDENTS AND ONE FOR OTHERS… AND MAKE THE STUDENT ONE REALLY FUNKY, WITH VIDEO ETC ETC, AND THE ONE FOR OTHERS COULD STAY AS IS… THAT WAY YOU WOULD HAVE A DIFFERENCE
MARKETING PLAN FOR EACH AND HANDLE ACCORDINGLY.

5. Where do you see my opportunities for growth with Radiance?
NOT REALLY SURE AS ITS NOT MY FIELD… BUT I WOULD BE ALIGNING RADIANCE WITH ESTABLISHED BEAUTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, WORKING OUT MUTUALLY SATISFACTORY RELATIONSHIPS.
WRITE YOUR OWN BOOK, A HANDBOOK FOR STUDENTS PERHAPS…DO YOU OWN “SECRETS OF…” BOOK BUT WITH STUDENTS AND THEIR BEAUTY EXPERIENCES/TIPS….TYING IN A ‘FREE ASSESSMENT’ WITH A PURCHASE OF THE BOOK, THEN SELL PRODUCT, MORE WORKSHOPS.
RUN COMPETITIONS FOR SCHOOLS.

6. Your best marketing/sales strategy ever?
READ THE TOM PETERS BOOKS MENTIONED ABOVE.

I think that is enough for now.

Really keen to hear your thoughts and thanking you in advance for your time.
