I set up my wellness therapy business in Autumn last year. Since then I’ve worked extremely hard getting the background stuff organised – setting up my website and Facebook business page, learning to fly Wordpress, Mailchimp, accounts packages, writing blogs etc, and obviously trying to attract clients so that I can actually get on with the job of helping people!
The best fun I’ve had is networking, and was delighted to stumble across WIRE – for 2 reasons. Firstly it tears me away from my laptop and therapy room for a change (working from home alone is never easy) and secondly I’ve met some lovely people there, who are happy to share their knowledge and skills base, and encourage new businesses like mine to grow and thrive.
My initial target was 4 clients a week, but this week I’ve got 9 booked in, so I’m finally feeling that all that hard work has paid off, and I’m on the right track. I will be eternally grateful for all the help, advice and encouragement I’ve received along the way, and particularly to the WIRE members who have been there for me with their words of wisdom, and interesting and engaging ‘talks’. I look forward to attending many more as the months go by.
If you are interested in finding out more about me, or how I work, please visit my website, or Facebook page, or of course, just pick up the phone and have a chat. I look forward to meeting you all soon. Lynn (Purple Tree Therapies) x
