Do You Deserve A VIP Vision Day? Competition Time!

Get thsoe ideas and visions on paperOne of the things that has come to me as I was looking at what I wanted to do this year is to offer a VIP Vision Day on me.

Most of the ladies I work with are keen and focused and wanting to move forward with their business, they enjoy sharing experiences, learning and having fun, even so I know you may be at the early stages of your business and are reluctant to invest much when you are not yet quite clear what is happening and how fast things will take off.

Or maybe you kind of know what you want to create but just feel you’re drifting around as you’re not quite clear enough.

I understand this can be a challenge, you want to invest in yourself and your business yet you are running a tight ship. So I have decided to offer a VIP Vision Day on scholarship to one lucky lady. This is normally $1200, so a fabulous saving.

To decide who this will be I am asking you to submit a short video or brief written proposal telling me why I should pick you.

All you have to do is submit your video or written proposal to jm [at] authenticedge . co . uk by 21 January.

What exactly is the VIP Vision Day?
In brief it is a day spent 121 (virtually) with me where we focus entirely on your goals and your vision for your business. And not just what you think it should be, what you really truly want. Because it is so much easier to plan everything else and even set up the structures of your business when you know exactly what you want to achieve.

We will work through a number of exercises, some together, some you will do on your own. Some are practical, some more intuitive. We will aim at the end of the day to come up with a few statements that summarize exactly what you really want to achieve in and with your business. Your heart centered vision.

From there you have something to build on and something to work towards and probably also some idea of who you would like to be in the process and who you would love to serve.

Whether you really want to work out what your big vision is, or you generally know and just want some clarity this day can help you brush away the doubts, get really focused and be ready to leap forward.

Last time I did a competition for a VIP Day, the lady concerned not only got clarity on her vision and reassurance about who she wanted to work with, she also picked up a new client and a new referral partner within three days!
