Time has been flying by and I realized yesterday we are at the halfway mark for entrepreneuse school. I can’t believe how much we’ve accomplished in five weeks – we all have company profiles, operations plans, value propositions and marketing plans (with tons of analysis on our customers). It’s exhausting hard work and well worth it in the end I think. A lot of us have our websites and blogs running merrily and not a day goes by where there isn’t activity in our Facebook group about the assignments, discussion about websites, accounting, where to get business cards, who will you bank with etc. It’s a good group of people with some great ideas and I’m enjoying being in class with them.
Thought I’d take a second to let you know about some of the folks I’m spending my Mondays and Wednesdays with.
Michael is the proprietor of Vams Kombucha, a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with a ‘scoby’, which stands for ‘ Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeasts’. The culture is placed in sweetened black or green tea and turns it into a beverage full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and health-giving organic acids. It’s good, I’ve tried it.
Stephanie runs Coeur de Lion Textiles – her designs mix shibori, an ancient Japanese resist dyeing technique, immersion and removal dyeing with contemporary practices of silk screening to create striking and lasting designs. Coeur De Lion Textiles offers wholesale and retail products as well as custom design services.
Helen owns Sunrise Editing – her tagline is Editing, Proofreading, and Copywriting Services … with heart. I believe it.
That’s only three – as we get going, I’ll post more sites when they become available.
Also of note in the small business Category – Control over Destiny jewellery Design is having its annual Holiday Show and Sale on November 19th at Tarragon Theatre (Far Studio). 30 Bridgman Avenue – see you there – photos below of some of the work!
