The Trials & Tribulations of an Entrepreneur
I’ll be attending a business networking event at the Greenwich Tavern on (D-Day) Tuesday, 6th June. It’s my first time with this outfit but I’m not nervous as such, although I am apprehensive about something. It’s self-consciousness I suppose. Not on behalf of me but my business, or service.
Effective Sales Copy
The trouble is that I prepared for the last one by pretty much writing extensive and compelling copy for my websites both current and accessible and the other, which is in development. I wanted something to take with me.
That plan crashed in a ball of flame. There’s no chance of recreating the type of copy I wrote in time for the session. And, I accept that.
I will be turning up without many business cards; following my now familiar route of taking other people’s details and communicating directly with them afterwards.
The important thing to remember is that this is a step in the right direction not a destination itself.
OK, I’m cool.
It appears I fit the pattern of an extraordinary person as opposed to an ordinary person. According to Amanda C. Watts, a business lifestyle adviser, in her book, Escape. There are several types of people in life and the ones who are determined to succeed at what they set out to do are generally, fit, strong, healthy, focused individuals who don’t shirk from the challenges ahead of them.
Well, that’s me alright.
I have a growth mindset that’s open to ideas and experiences. I live outside the box and am future facing, and what’s more is I spring out of bed to follow my passions and purposes that day. I work to a plan, a strategy and I stick to it, come hail or shine.
With all that on my side, how can I possibly fail?
Event Photography in General
Event photography gets you about alright, which for me is one of the key attractions to photographing them. I find myself in the most extraordinary places and situations talking to really interesting people all the time. And there’s always the free lunch aspect to it too. Yesterday I was at the O2 Arena in Greenwich to shoot two speakers in an event hosted by the lovely people at the South East London Chamber of Commerce. My aim when shooting is to capture the formal and the informal without being obtrusive on the guests, some of whom aren’t always happy to have their picture taken. It’s a skill one develops over time.
This was an interesting event at the Slug & Lettuce, O2. The Healthy Workplace Charter and the Economy for the Common Good is looking for businesses to invest in its concept.
Economy for the Common Good is a social movement advocating for an alternative economic model. It calls for working towards the common good and cooperation instead of profit-orientation and competition which lead to greed and uncontrolled growth.
A full account of their vision can be found on their website.
A big thank you to Peter Wilson, the Business Development Director at SELCC, for inviting me to take the photos. Peter is also a member of the fabulous Blackheath Luncheon Club, another event at which I take photographs.
The Slug & Lettuce at the O2 provided their first floor function room for the event.
Altogether we all came away with a unique insight into the way things could be rather than how they are.
