Following on from my post yesterday regarding the frustrations we sometimes go through and the feeling of maybe giving up, I want to talk today about how we can take little steps everyday to give us the boost we need. I talked yesterday about shining your light to the world. This may sound weird to some people but I was reassured this week listening to Amanda Gore say the same thing. It was like bathing in warm milk this week going along to listen to Amanda speak. Here she is talking right at me (I'm sure), speaking my language and reaching straight into my heart.
Did you know the number one thing people need is Acknowledgement? Everyone wants to be noticed for what they've done, appreciated and valued. Amanda had us all laughing as she told us to do little and big TA DAA's with everything we do. If it's a big achievement, do a big TA DAA. Jump up, throw your arms out and yell 'TA DAA'. Yep, just like a little toddler thats proud of the wee they just did on the potty. If it's a little achievement, do a little TA DAA. If someone's watching, all the better, if not, celebrate with yourself.
Its so simple. We all want acknowledgement and yet we race through our lives all serious that we forget to even acknowledge ourselves. But, you may say, 'isnt that a bit self absorbed?' YES!! Ofcourse it is. Look after you then everything else will follow. Why on earth do the flight attendants tell you to put your own oxygen mask on first before you put it on your childs? Because if you're dead you cant help anyone!!!! It's okay to love yourself, celebrate yourself, sing your praises and tell yourself you're doing good. Laugh about it. Fill yourself with joy, act like a child sometimes, do your TA DAA's and have fun with what you do everyday. Don't just keep it to yourself though. I doubt that I even need to say this. You will automatically start celebrating with others and doing little TA DAA's with them. They will love you for it, you'll make them laugh, but most importantly, you will help them see how valued, special and amazing they are.
Did you get up this morning? Well TA DAA!!!!!!! You're here!!! That alone deserves a big TA DAA!! Well done. Love your work, keep it coming.
BTW if you want to hear Amanda speak, she's speaking at the first Red Hot Event for the year on The Sunshine Coast, Friday 3rd Feb. Click HERE for details.
Simone Leete is the designer and owner of women’s lifestyle clothing label MiMi FiRST. After moving to the Sunshine Coast about 13 years ago and working in high end boutiques in Hastings St, Noosa Heads since her arrival, Simone finally decided to follow her designer dream.
Almost 5 years ago now MIMi FiRST was born and her designs can be found in boutiques Australia wide. The wholesale side of the business remains strong and what started as a small collection of core wardrobe essentials offered only in black, has morphed into an extensive range of fashion essentials offered in a functional palette of colours and prints exclusive to the MiMi FiRST Brand.
Since showcasing her design skills on Melbourne catwalks for the Fashions on the Field Design Awards over the past four years there has been increasing demand to create exclusive looks for private clients which reflect the core values of MiMi FiRST do not find their way onto the racks of your local boutique.
The sound of familiar voices keeps me in touch with home while I am away. Stories shared inspire me to continually challenge myself both at work and play. The bonds I have created as I have moved through my life are well represented at Red Hot Events with Sue Murphy providing amazing support to local business women and the wider community, previously known to me as Sue Henry. Providing me with all the love and friendship advice a teenage school friend needed in our heyday.

“HOW TO FLIRT AND CONVERT ON FACEBOOK!”
Leverage Facebook to BUILDYOURBRAND andPROPELYOURPROFITS!
The internet, social media and in particular Facebook have transformed the way businesses communicates with their consumers. Kylie’s Facebook ‘Flirt and Convert’ marketing system shows you how to leverage the power of Facebook to build a personal link with your market. Wow!! What an awesome day we had with Kylie. We filled the room with some of The Sunshine Coasts most accomplished business people. The energy and enthusiasm in the room was electric.
It was so exciting as we all came to realise the potential Facebook would give us to market our business, network with others and to create income from selling our products. The light bulb went on for many and we sat with our laptops working away and getting more and more enthralled with the potential that lay before us. Kylie is so much fun and she made us realise the importance of using this Social media phenomonon. If youre not using it then you really are missing out. Its the new generation of business.
We are purposeful entrepeneurs. The hard sell techniques are gone and todays successful business owners are allowing others to know them on a more personal level and then they get to know their business and trust it. People want to know you before they know your business. Once they like you they are so much more likely to want to do business with you. Facebook is the perfect way to do this. You can network with others and cross promote one another. The end result is SALES!! I highly recommend you get to one of Kylies workshops. See below for more details.
Kylie’s one day Facebook ‘Flirt and Convert’ workshop is a ‘Roll-Up-your-sleeves’ event like no other! You simply turn up with YOUR LAPTOP (you don’t have to bring it but you can) and you literally get to look over her shoulder as she shares with you all of her cleverlittle marketing tricks that have elevated her to ‘rock star status’ on Facebook and generated her a small fortune along with an amazing lifestyle working only with the clients she wishes to!
