Keys to Building a Successful Solo Business.
Creating Your Unique Value Proposition
A crucial key to your success as a solo success is being able to talk about what it is you are offering in your business in a short, easy, compelling and fluent way. That means writing a short statement the capsulizes your offerings and the benefits of working with you into a statement we call your Unique Value Proposition. In this class we will spend time drafting, writing, re-writing (probably several times) your value proposition. Then everyone will get a chance to say it out loud to the class. That will give you practice with a friendly crowd to speak your UVP and get over any nerves, fears or worries. The trick is to say it often enough that it rolls off your tongue and is as familiar and comfortable as saying your name. We will talk about the ways you can use this statement to focus your time, energy and allocation of scarce resources.
This class will be high energy, fun, interactive, and practical. You will learn skills you can use immediately as you create your encore business. Your instructor, Jackie B Peterson, is a national thought leaders on solopreneurship and will share many ideas, client stories and ideas for creating a viable solo enterprise.
