I've been watching some amazing videos by Marie Forleo on business - it's my big goal for 2013 to get my business out into the world. Marie invited people to make a video for her about who we are and what we do. This is mine...
If you want to get some business inspiration and motivation check out Marie at http://rhhbschool.com/ Her weekly videos are amazing and so helpful. She covers such a wde variety of topics to do with running your own business and they're fun! No dull monologues or preachy lectures.
I love that Marie puts her personality into everything she does. It's something I'm realising is not only okay; but also good to do. I always thought business should be starchy and professional, like a bank. I never thought you could actually do what you love, be yourself and be successful. That's what I'm doing now. It's harder than you would think to be yourself, to not filter yourself to be the way you think people want you to be; but I'm working on it! And having fun too!
I have everything crossed for the scholarship because I would love to work with Marie, she's awesome! I know that her marketing expertise would change things forever for me and for Live in Love in Laugh in. As you can tell from my video, I passionately believe that I can make a difference, that there are millions of people in the world who would love and benefit from what I do, the virtual vacations, the holidays from home and the parties in your pad. My mission is to get them out there and into the right hands. With Marie's help I intend to do just that.
