February #LBLWL is our second event of the year and its the month of LOVE.
Sharing love is something that one should be doing continiously and valentines can just be the day to bring it out even more.
This month my business partner Serena (the one with the S on her chest, like superwoman 😃) took the group on a wonderful networking session.
The lovely lady in the middle is our Super Shernette who runs her own Empire;
HoorayPartyShop on 73 Darthmouth Road, Forest Hill.
Annual event ShadesofBritian.com
And is THE AMAZING SINGER "Shay"
Shernette Im so proud to say is our Team Event Director - the person we run to for all events.
The session went down great with the group.
Before I meet Serena and Shernette, I had been working as a soloprenuer since 2004.
I had worked with many business colleagues on set projects but Serena is my first business partner for all the projects. My usual pattern was one partner on one project ONLY! But with Serena from the beginning it was different as we started with 3 projects straight away.
Serena had brought Shernette as an event manger for 1 of the projects and we all have not looked back since.
Now 3 years later not only do I have a business partner and joint director with Smart World with Serena, but a best friend in business and my personal life.
And thankfully she brought the best event empire business owner Shernette who is the magical gel to the best friends and business team xxx
"Having business partners for me now has been like choosing my own family"
I see many solopreneurs strugge with all the hats they wear to run a business in this day and age.
Marketing - Admin - production - customer service - website building - design - stock controler and the list goes on!
Building a team is something a business owner will have to deal with. It took me a long time but I have been blessed to find a really great business partner that has become one of my best friends.
I wish all solopreneurs the best when bringing in a business partner it can be one of best things you can do😉.
