Hi my name Lou Zimmermann and I’m the Nit Lady I have a small business called Love4Lice. I found the PopUp Business course Aotearoa on Facebook and signed up straight away.
Before the course
Before starting the course I wanted to learn more on how to run a business. Wasn’t sure that I was going to do the full 10 days to be honest, I do know a little about business and the subjects I wanted to learn were more to do with taxes, GST, and apply for funding to help my schools have the programme. I don’t learn well from paper and pen and wasn’t sure I would be able to learn at all it’s been years for me in a classroom.
The 10 Days
I can proudly say, I did the full 10days and loved every day and every moment of it.
After the first day I was grabbed into it, Tony and his team are amazing, I learnt way more than I was expecting and yes I walked away with more knowledge on taxes, GST and getting a book keeper is the key.
Every day we had a speaker that was so empowering and inspiring listening to successful business owners and their own experiences. I took away so many empowering moments.
To name a few high points in the course was,
The Key Things I Learned
You don’t need a degree... Passion... grow with it... 1000 raving fans... step outside your comfort zone... Little and often... take imperfection actions... people buy off who they know and trust... don’t need to get into debt... find your niche market... how important social media is for business... know your customers.... and networking. These are just a few things I have learned!
The class of entrepreneurs was amazing! Being amongst people like yourself, we all learnt off each other and have some amazing new friendships.
How I feel about the future of my business
I feel more prepared now and positive about the future of Love4Lice, fail is not an option and I will read back on my notes when I need to regroup myself, my passion and drive is there and will stay there now I have more understanding in being successful.
My advice for people thinking of attending this course
