Have you ever wished you had a business fairy godmother?
Me, too! Be careful…you just might have your wish granted. Your dreams could come to life if you keep moving in the direction of them. I often share every chance I get that if you take one step a day toward your dreams you will be 365 steps closer at the end of a year!
Reach for your dreams.
Life has a funny way of adding a twist. I love seeing people reach for their dreams. Every business idea, every personal or professional goal begins with an idea, an a-ha moment. Your mind has to wrap around the experience to bring it to life. You need to use all your senses to describe it, so it becomes an experience to participate in real life! Write about your dream. Create and collect images of your dream. What do your dreams taste like – champagne, chocolate, a steak? Is there an amazing smell – your favorite cologne, freshly brewed coffee with toast? Put your imagination to work!
It’s almost comical now to go back to my A.C.T. test from high school. Shortly after The Concierge Office Suites was purchased I cleaned out some files and found my A.C.T. test. I immediately had to call my mother! Part of the test reveals the type of career that makes sense for your interests. B-I-N-G-O, I had The Concierge Office Suites in my mind all along. I just didn’t know where to find it or what to call the experience as a business in high school. Life just led me to it, because I kept looking for the experience. My goal is to surround myself with people that share glimpses of what I want to experience. It’s why you’re influenced by the five closest people to you. Surround yourself with positive, go-getters going somewhere!
Do what you love.
There’s a reason why I love The Concierge Office Suites. I love seeing people do what they love AND make money at it. My full-service office space, The Concierge Office Suites, is a microcosm of what’s happening in the economy, in the digital age of work. If you pursue what you’re passionate about you’ll never work a day in your life. The executives we serve have their serious hustle on for their areas of expertise. We’re all about creating an office environment to concentrate and focus, with the opportunity to be spoiled by our business concierge support team.
“All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dream with open eyes to make it possible.”
I started looking at how my Business Concierge team and I make things magically happen for our clients at The Concierge Office Suites. We work really hard to anticipate our client’s needs before they even ask. There would be a revolt if we didn’t have coffee, chocolate and the internet. We consider these necessities! It’s fun to see their faces light up when their favorite candy is in the candy dish. It’s lots of little things over time that have a positive impact. It’s even better when we provide business referrals that make sense for their pursuits. The real magic is being asked to be part of a client project, deliver it on time, on budget and offer more than they expect. Evolved entrepreneurs in search of effective office workspaces love gaining tips to help them shortcut a process or explore a new way of thinking about their work.
I variously read online content related to social media marketing, as I have the opportunity to speak on the subject and manage it for The Concierge Office Suites. I started using social media in early 2007. In fact, a business professor at one of the local colleges said they just weren’t able to see a return on investment. I was explaining the whole purpose of it and what we were doing on the platforms of the time to connect with people in those early years. Converting online connections to real-life connections is really fun for me. Thanks to social media I’ve met some amazing people. In my research, I realize video is the number one tool for almost every platform. I’ve watched lots of online videos – some interesting, some not so interesting. Making your own video content is good, especially if it’s real-time. Being direct with your message is good. I don’t want to ever be just another talking head on video like this local business owner, along with many others:
Create an icon.
I was in search of an icon that would represent the experience of working at The Concierge Office Suites. The icon should be a nod to the magic we create as a business concierge team anticipating our client’s needs. The idea of Fleur De Lis, Business Fairy Godmother, came to me from conversations I was having with vendors and clients and their experience with us.
My team and I started looking at how to effectively share Fleur De Lis’s experiences. We knew it had to be video! We knew she should tell the story of modern-day business life for evolved entrepreneurs through the adaptation of tried and true fairy tales converted to #businesstales (click the link to watch the YouTube playlist). The story goal every time is to be fun to watch, and relatable for evolved entrepreneurs adding an unexpected twist. We want to create a moment to motivate you to #keepgoing, or spark an a-ha! A story could be told with a quote, a photo, or video. It just has to be interesting!
