Hello from the plane on the way back from 2×4 Live Workshop. Donna Maria Coles Johnson of Indie Business Network, Lela Barker from Lucky Break Consulting, Kayla Fiorvanti from Selah Press and I spoke and workshopped for two days about everything small business.
We had many types of small businesses in the room. Attendees included everything from make-up for redheads, to recycled pallet furniture manufacturers, to environmental strategy consultants, to tiny house experts to bath and body makers. It was a great group.
One of the first talks was a panel discussion. Upon arrival, each attendee was given a slip of paper to ask their most pressing question about business, marketing, social media or anything (!). There were generally three types of questions – on social media, on marketing and general business questions. We (the speakers) didn’t all agree all the time, proving that there are a variety of ways to be successful.
