“Expanding your hobby, interest or idea – Where do you want to take it” workshop for JCI Reading
Review Blog by Lynda Harwood
Last week, Steve Wells, Business Coach at AIM to Succeed, presented a workshop for JCI Reading on the theme of “Expanding your hobby, interest or idea – Where do you want to take it” at Reading Business Centre.
Steve led us through how to take the first steps into gathering research and info to progress our idea as well as making sure we are at the centre of our idea and getting the most out of it.
At the beginning rather than telling us what he was going to cover in the workshop, Steve asked us to write down two of our objectives for our ideas and he used our objectives to tailor the workshop to meet our requirements.
The workshop was invaluable and really brought to the forefront some key activities such as marketing, personal objectives for our hobby and research that we can all work towards achieving. Even though there were ten of us in attendance , Steve managed to personalise the workshop to each of us – no easy feat.
It was great to meet the other attendees as well as hear their fab ideas, whether it be for a small business they are intending to set up, a hobby they wanted to make more out of or even turn into a business and even a couple of existing businesses looking for some focus.
The workshop was a real success and Steve has now offered to sponsor a series of workshops for us. He is currently planning our next workshops entitles the ‘Visualising your dream’ and ‘Price perception’ (dates and details coming soon).
I’d also like to say a big thank you to Reading Business Centre for offering us use of their seminar room and facilities. The Reading Business Centre was a perfect for our workshops and I would definitely recommend it (http://www.readingbusinesscentre.com/)
I think I speak for all of us, when I say we all left the workshop feeling energised and ready to expand our hobby!
