A Women in Business Network Morning was recently held at Hirsch’s Strubens Valley where the finalist for January, Elrike Jv Rensburg was announced. Elrike started as a consultant with ENJO SA in 2013. During 2016 ENJO International evaluated her performance and she was approached to manage ENJO SA. By early 2017 she received the go-ahead and is currently recruiting other ENJO Entrepreneurs. ENJO SA is a direct selling company distributing cleaning products without the use of chemicals. The WIB Networking Event is held monthly and a winner selected for each month. All finalists will get entered into the WIB of the Year Award which takes place during October.
The guest speaker of the morning was Niree Stanley, who addressed the ladies on Business Strategy. Niree explained, that as a business owner it is essential to have a vision for your business. If one does not have enough supply to meet the demand it can be dangerous for any business and it can be devastating if you experience growth without planning for it in advance.
“This is where strategy and planning come into it. You need to set goals and have a vision for your business for at least 1 year ahead. It is very important to have aspirations and to be able to see them in your mind’s eye. By setting goals you need to believe that anything is possible but you need to be realistic at the same time. Have a plan that will enable you to reach your specific goals, but it must be realistic, measurable and time bound. Set your goals within the perimeters of your specifications. It is also important to do financial planning and forecasting for at least 60 months” said Niree. She added that the next step would be to make a list of your actions whilst planning. These actions would include Marketing activities, Networking, Building relationships, offering workshops and training, to name but a few.
The morning’s networking session ended with Q&A and the highlight of the morning was when Lizette Volkwyn announced the launch of her new book “Finding Me”. Lizette is a dynamic and energetic individual with a passion to empower individuals to excel in life. Guests were able to purchase signed copies and enjoy a hot cup of coffee on this rainy day.To find out more regarding the monthly events contact PRO, Dorette on firstname.lastname@example.org
