“I want to help you control your business, rather than your business controlling you.” Naomi Simson
The pages are intertwined with valuable quotes from internationally renowned celebrities, fun facts, and activities, as well as Naomi’s experiences.
My business is moving from the start-up phase, and I do wish I had read this book before I jumped into my entrepreneurial journey. In the last 3 plus years, I’ve considered the impact of my business on my personal life and lifestyle – not something I thought about initially. Naomi reminds the reader to consider how your business will impact your personal budget and time, plus how many adjustments you are prepared to make or sacrifice for your business success. Do you think of nothing else except your business?
When you are preparing for your business launch or progression to the next level, ensure you draw on past experiences and learn as much as you can via connections, mentors and the like. Ensure you have contingency plans that include an exit strategy, business growth and need for additional funds to name a few.
The third part of the book talks about pitching your business. And before you write this section off, consider the following quote from Natalie Massenet that Naomi included within the book.
“Never forget that you only have one opportunity to make a first impression – with investors, with customers, with PR and with marketing”
Learning to pitch your business is more than asking investors for money. It’s about knowing your business inside & out, knowing who to trust and knowing how to conduct yourself professionally to attract more clients, staff, mentors and valuable partnerships.
Ready to Soar talks about partnerships. Does every business need one? What role will the partner play within the business? How do you choose the most successful partner? If partnership is on your businesses agenda, this book will help you assess these questions and more to ensure your business success continues to grow.
Who is this book for?
Initially I assumed this book was for those yet to embark on their business journey, or at least very early on in their venture. However, having now read it cover to cover, and being a solopreneur who is (at the time of writing) in her fourth year of business – I believe it is valuable to any business owner, inventor or entrepreneur who is ready to start, within the initial years or has a more established business ready to progress to the next stage.
