This is the story about how The Cheeky Chats started. From an idea I first had, sat at home, alone, fresh with ideas and no one to turn to. No one to ask the many questions I had running through my head about how I should be taking my business forward in 2012. So I decided to put it out there.
I popped a post on my Facebook page "would any other businesses out there like to join me for a chat about all things business, crafting, Facebook, Twitter.......?"
As you may know already, the chats took off and we have now had a few very successful chats and lot's of fabulous ladies have jumped on board to guest blog for us and write about their area of expertise.
Please read on to hear the story of the beginning of the Cheeky Chats. Enjoy! Tanya and I would love to see you at the next chat. Once a month, Tuesday nights, 8pm, now on tickle the imagination's fb page.
You can read all the blogs here or just go to Cheeky Chats and Blogs under the catagories menu to the right of my blog
the story of the beginning of The Cheeky Chat....................
Well I have woken up rather exhausted this morning, or did I actually get any sleep? My mind was buzzing so much that I kept my poor husband up half the night discussing the in's and out's of FB!
- How many small businesses are there out on FB? New and old, it doesn't matter. We are all going through the same problems!
- How many are mums who are juggling kids, cleaning the house, designing and trying to work the business side out too?
- How many of these small business owners are working alone, thinking up ideas alone, struggling with finding answers alone?
- How many of those mums have a skill outside their business? What was their job before? Marketing, sales, retail, postal, accountant...............
- How many of these mums/small biz owners are brilliant at everything. Designing, accounts, marketing, fb apps, web design. NONE OF US. It's impossible!
I hope you all can gain something, anything from either reading the blogs or joining in with the chats.
Here's to you!!
