    Top Tips for Business Success

    Interview with Jodie Nolan from Equis Group.

    Natalie 

    What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?”

    Jodie

    I find entrepreneur an odd little word but I like the idea of being in charge of my own destiny, pursuing goals and dreams. I physically rarely stop so I like the idea that I’m always working towards something that makes my heart sing – always looking for new ways of doing things, solutions to problems and setting new yardsticks!”

    Natalie

    “What were some of your initial challenges (eg getting your message out there, publicity, finding direction, finding clients, money, budgetting??)”

    Jodie

    “Ha, ha….all of the above! I admit, it isn’t easy most of the way but that is the challenge and is half the fun of a ‘start up’! My message was a little tougher given people weren’t sure of my initial intention, was I giving ‘advice’ or not? Now, things are easier and the publicity (although hard to deal with the odd negative comment) that comes from creating controversy has been great for my cause to change the face of financial literacy for Australians!”

    Natalie

    “What do you know now that you wish you knew back then?”

    Jodie

    “How long it takes to actually get a business off the ground – even for this seasoned worker, I didn’t realise how many hours, weeks, months and years you put in before you really start to see the fruits of your labour.”

    Natalie

    Why do you think the NetConnect Seminar is always a huge success and why have you agreed to be involved?

    Jodie

    “NetConnect is different to other business seminars in that there is a caring, compassionate (free to be yourself) environment – that is refreshing in the often ‘faceless’ world of marketing.”

    Natalie

    “What are your 3 top tips for creating a successful solo business?”

    Jodie

    1. be diligent and trust yourself to make the right decisions

    2.believe in your product or service with all your heart and

    3. don’t confuse ‘solo’ with ‘on your own’, there are plenty of people who are keen to support, encourage and be a shoulder to lean on if you need them.

    Natalie

    “What satisfies you most about owning your own business?”

    Jodie

    “The awesome testimonials I get, the ability to take a day to play with my toddlers without a care in the world or worry I might upset someone and the true belief that I will change the way Australians learn about money in the future!”

    Natalie

    Would you ever give it up? your own business? could you?”

    Jodie

    Nope – unfortunately it’s in my blood!”
