We’re here to make it easier for you to design a profitable business on your terms.
In business, you need to think outside the box, colour outside the lines and be innovative. If you are following someone else’s rule book, I give you permission to throw it out of the window. It’s time to do things your way.
I’m Isa Maria Seminega, a business strategist that works with innovators and changemakers who want to make an impact on the world. (Read more about me here).
Success Your Way is a strategy I came up with when growing my first business. I started out like many of you, following the expectations of what I thought it should be like, in particular, how marketing should be like. I became unhappy, stressed and even though I was in profit within a week, I made little money for the amount of time and effort I was putting in because I was undercharging for my time and knowledge. As soon as I started making changes that felt right for me, my business took off. I’m now on course to turnover six figures this year. All because I wrote my own rules.
Here at Noisette Academy we won’t tell you how to do things, we won’t tell you you HAVE to do things (except keep learning, listening and working hard) but we will inform you of the choices you have so you can decide what is best for you and your business.
We’ll give you the tools you need to make those decisions, the worksheets, the downloads and other resources that will help you build your best, most profitable business.
The truth is there is no one blueprint for success. Even if you followed the exact steps that Richard Branson took to build his Virgin empire, there is no guarantee you’ll achieve the same success. Why? Because we are all different. We all have a set of different circumstances, passions, strengths and weaknesses. The economical landscape is different and changing all the time. Technology is also changing, with more apps and opportunities than ever before to seek out more information to grow your business. But sometimes the more choices we have, the more stagnant we feel.
We also have different ways to measure success. Some people know they have made it when they are booked solid with clients, others prefer to work with less people but for more profit, some want to win awards, others want to simply do great work and delight their customers.
You can define your own success, build a business that you love and still have time to concentrate on the things that matter.
You went into business to spend time with your family, to do what you love and make a bundle of cash along the way. Not so you can become a millionaire (although I’m sure that would be nice!) but so you can be comfortable, contribute to the family home and feel worth something.
Get ready to step out of your comfort zone, build your unique business strategy and make your own rules.
