Twice a year, all momstown chapter owners from across the country come together with the momstown head office team and spend three days working on strategy and leadership development. As an entrepreneur, taking time away from your business can be hard, but after just coming home from another inspiring momstown conference, I urge you to take the time away from your business and spend some time thinking of the bigger picture.
So what does that mean, to work ON your business? Here are some areas to focus on that will take you out of the day to day activities:
I feel fortunate that I have such an incredible team to help guide me through all the questions above and to assist with any problems that I might have. The power of the momstown team makes my business so much stronger!
Working on your business also includes making time for those powerful conversations that often come from informal chats with others in your business community. Great ideas are born while talking over a glass of wine or enjoying a meal together. Fern Resort in Orillia was the perfect spot for our Spring National conference as it provides excellent space for our meetings and work but also incredible surroundings for inspiration!
In addition to Fern Resort, I offer my thanks to our other conference sponsors for helping us stay fueled and providing us with some fun too.
I had never had Amarula before and this very smooth cream liquor was a perfect drink to sip on the patio overlooking the lake (and its loaded with Vitamin C too!) Yummy snacks from Walmart Canada were perfect for our brainstorming sessions and my kids were so happy to receive the Hot Wheels Cars from Hot Wheels Canada. They spent 90 minutes after I got home playing with the Hot Wheels Colour Shifter Fire Truck! I was also happy to learn about Now For Mothers Healing Mix (a post pregnancy recovery mix) that helps to increase natural energy. With so many of our momstown program pass holders recently having a baby, I will surely pass this product along to help.
So what are my next steps? Well after spending some serious time planning and strategizing, I am ready to work hard and bring it to life! I am excited for what the next 12 months will bring and can't wait to share more exciting details very soon.
