I own Once Upon A Time Weddings in Strathroy, Ontario. We create one of a kind bridal experiences that will be remembered long after the wedding day. We carry bridal gowns and bridesmaids gowns and have been in business for over six years.
Being part of Profit Pods has helped me in a lot of ways. I feel more confident in my leadership skills and I love that I have a great group of like minded women to bounce ideas off and glean new ideas from. I look forward to our calls and leave feeling refreshed and ready to start implementing what I’ve learned right away.
The main reason that I chose to participate in pods was because of the accountability the groups offers. Like a lot of entrepreneurs, I tend to be a big picture kind of girl and get lost in the details. I have bad follow through because I tend to jump from big idea to big idea. I loved the idea of being able to set some goals and then be held accountable to them every two weeks. I wanted to make sure I was focusing on working on my business and not just in my business.
The biggest benefit has been the accountability I have received from Lisa and my pods members. I also have learned so much from my one on one coaching from Lisa but also from listening to her coach the other pod members. I have seen incredible growth in my business sales wise, but also in my own skill set. I have developed better leadership skills and feel more equipped to continue to grow my business.
Make sure you have time set aside to implement all that you are going to learn. Knowledge without action is not going to make any change. If you are looking for accountability and the opportunity to grow your business, then do it! Don’t see it a business expense, see it as an investment in you, your business and your future.
