Top tips for anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today
- Ask for help. Look for people with common values to brainstorm with, to collaborate with, and to toss around ideas with. Learn about them first, and don’t ask them for things you can find through a search or reading their online profile and content.
- Contract out work you don’t need to do – or that saps your energy.
Hire people to clean your house- do your bookkeeping- and manage your calendar or whatever are things that don’t energize you. Decide where your energy is best spent and focus on that.
- Invest time in telling and sharing your story. Find a social media platform you enjoy using and tell and share your story. People want to do business with people they Know – Like – and Trust. So let the world know who you are. “One-to-many” communication vs. only “one-to-one” has great potential. I have met amazing people because of virtual and real-life networking! The magic happens when you connect both.
Gail’s first career was in journalism. She spent over a decade working at newspapers: The Toronto Star, The St. Catharines Standard, The Hamilton Spectator, and The Windsor Star. She then delved into a few different careers: Bed and Breakfast proprietor, fundraiser, advertising and promotions manager in the fields of insurance and technology – and now, an entrepreneur with GailNow, as CCO – Chief Curiosity Officer.
Now as a “recovering journalist” Gail helps people who struggle to have their voices heard and their stories told.
Her strength is in public relations and storytelling.
As a curiosity seeker, she also wants to uncover stories that may not fall within the mainstream narrative.
