All of us love getting positive feedback: especially when involved in new ventures.
Setting up a new business can be one of the toughest things you can do, you put your heart and soul into it, mentally, physically and financially. It can be a very lonely place, full of pockets of doubt mixed with moments of elation, times of great frustration and also great joy, a very unsettling but amazing time. Certainly not for the fainthearted.
Receiving positive feedback on your ideas, products and services can be one of the best things to keep you going.
I have recently set up two new businesses, and I’m getting all of the above emotions x two. However, I can honestly say that the amazing feedback I’m getting from others is what keeps me believing that I’m on the right path and that they will both be successful.
I have received so many positive responses, on my ideas, my courses and from my speaking engagements, that I feel very privileged to be able to follow my dreams in this way.
If you know someone else in this position, help them along with a few words of encouragement and some genuine feedback on what they are trying to achieve. It could make all the difference to them and you never know what they could achieve because of it.
My networking training courses have had such great feedback that I’ve uploaded the planning section as an online course that people can take without leaving the office. Very few people actually plan their networking, and even seasoned networkers have said they found this extremely useful and not something they have thought about in detail before.
