Launch Day!!

Published June 1, 2012 by sparklebysarah

Today, I started the next step.  I sent out emails, facebook notifications, and a twitter announcement telling everyone I know what my new business is.  The launch announcement has been sent.  Now, I am going to continue to work my tail off to get the business rolling.

I’m already working on an event!  I decided that creating a contract is the best thing to do in order to protect myself and my customers so everyone knows exactly what I am going to be responsible for doing.  It’s going to be a simple write-up describing what I understand the customer’s need to be and what I am going to deliver based on that need.

I am waiting for the business cards I designed to get here.  I created one using one of the many photographs from Melissa Harper Photography.  If you are looking for a photographer, I highly recommend her:

More to come!


Launch Date Set

Published May 14, 2012 by sparklebysarah

The next step that I have taken is the simple one of setting dates for myself.  Something I have noticed in the past is that having goals is great, but if there is no date, the goal never even gets started.  By creating deadlines, there is movement forward.

So, I have set the date.  On 1 June, I am launching Sparkle by Sarah, my corporate event planning company.  The website will be live/active, this blog will be tied into the website and updated fairly regularly, business cards will be handed out, the Facebook page will be active, and I will be shouting from the rooftops encouraging everyone I know to spread the word about my business.

I have been spending time every day working on something for the business.  Every day, there is something I can do to build or improve it.  If I am not working daily on building my business, who will do it for me?
