To be or not to be...
That was the question at this week's +24 event as we welcomed back the brilliant Debbie Huxton and introduced another fantastic speaker, Rosie Huckle.
In her presentation, Debbie gave us the gift of self-awareness; a scary thought for some people but a strength that is so important to business owners. By taking a step back you are able to review your circle of influence, that's the people closest to you, because they reflect your true personality. If they are a negative influence, "what are you doing to address the negativity?", Debbie asked.
Debbie also asked the audience of local businesses, "are you living or are you just existing?"
This acted as a call to action, encouraging us to look at which areas of our life need more attention, whether that be our health, business, or relationships.
Most importantly, Debbie stressed that you've got to be ready for challenges and be ready to live your life!
Our second brilliant speaker was Rosie Huckle of Aspire Image & Style. As an image and style consultant, Rosie works with business owners to help them leave a great first impression and be remembered for all the right reasons.
You only have 7 seconds to make a first impression so Rosie asked, "How are you showing up to other people?"
Rosie shared some of her top tips as well as examples of how your image can have a major impact on the results you hope to achieve. It certainly got the audience thinking with many running to the nearest mirror during the break to tweak their hair!
The next +24 event is on the 7th September where we are celebrating our 5th birthday, so make sure your diaries are free because we have something huge planned!
