Publisher's Notes - August 2011
This summer I’m volunteering my time to mentor young entrepreneurs in The Summer Company through our local Small Business Centre. These teens will all return to high school, college, or university in the Fall but over the summer months they are learning the intricacies of being business owners.
I am thrilled with the media coverage they’re receiving (yes, a good press release goes a long way), how they quickly realize when one marketing effort isn’t working as planned they redirect their energies for improved results, and they get out and network. Nothing holds them back because they know they only have a few short months to make it work. (See their businesses here.)

The masterminding that goes on in our group sessions is invaluable. Opportunities, new ideas, and resources are shared so everyone benefits. They are learning what many entrepreneurs never discover…you don’t need to do it alone. A good mentor, coach, or mastermind group makes the working “on” your business easier – and leads to far greater success.
P.S. I’m teaming up with Jennifer Longmore from Soul Journeys for a full day “Client Attraction/Client Retention” intensive you won’t want to miss. Save the date! Friday, October 21, 2011 in London, Ontario…and stay tuned for details coming your way soon.
