When I was a young girl, Mr. Eddie Kennedy was my tennis coach. He always made me feel special and helped me develop the confidence I needed to eventually compete in the Mid-Atlantic Lawn Tennis Association and to lead my high school tennis team. One day, Mr. Kennedy was chatting after a match with some of his friends. I approached to greet him and he introduced me to his buddies as his “Protégé.” I had no idea what that meant, and when I asked him, he said it meant I was his special student.
I'm not sure how special I was because Mr. Kennedy taught hundreds of Washington, DC, area kids to play tennis. I was just one of them. Even though I was one of many, Mr. Kennedy's use of the term, “Protégé” to refer to me made me feel like I was the only student that mattered. It just sounds so fancy and all. Mr. Kennedy cheered every passing shot I made, and he lifted my spirits when my best efforts only resulted in balls going into the net. Mr. Kennedy is part of the impetus for my new program: INDIE Protégé Network. Let me tell you more.
As founder and CEO of the INDIE Beauty Network, I meet a lot of people who are excited about entering the beauty business, but they don't know where to start. They want to join IBN as a full member with products liability insurance, but aren't quite “there” yet. They want something they can bite off in smaller pieces — something that will allow them to get the “low down” on what it takes to be successful in business — in bite-sized chunks.
I have been thinking for a long time about how I can make myself and my expertise available to people who fit this description. INDIE Protégé Network allows me to do that. Not only that, all IBN members enjoy INDIE Protégé Network benefits as a new IBN member benefit, at no additional cost!
Who Should Join INDIE Protégé Network?
Remember: If you are an IBN member, you are automatically an INDIE Protégé.
If not, you are a prefect candidate to become an INDIE Protégé:
– would like to enjoy one-on-one mentoring with me, and are not ready full commitment to full IBN membership
– you want to launch a business, but are a bit tentative about what is involved
– you are overwhelmed by the amount of start-up business information, and want something bite-sized and easy to understand and embrace
– you are a seasoned entrepreneur who enjoys ongoing learning and networking with like-minded business owners
– you have a job and want an easy way to begin to embrace cutting edge entrepreneurial principles so you can prepare yourself to start a business of your own
Does any of this describe you? If so, I invite you to be my Protégé!
What Do You Get As An INDIE Protégé
As my Protégé, you learn at your own pace what it takes to be successful in business. You have full control over the process. There's no long-term commitment and it's easy to benefit, even if you are still working a traditional job.
Several times a month, you’ll enjoy cutting edge teleseminars, video “how to” screencasts and recorded tutorials to equip you with the tools you need to take the action (at INDIE Protégé, we focus on ACTION, not knowledge) you need to grow your business. You will have fun networking with others, and from time to time, my special, hand-picked guests will join us and mentor you alongside me.
Topics will include such things as:
– embracing your entrepreneurial mindset
– using your blog to build your business and your personal sphere of influence
– creating an effective FaceBook Page without spending excessive amounts of time
– easy tips to take good product photos yourself and on a budget
– how to use video to generate more sales
– how to build a network of supportive people who can help your business grow
– and so much more!
Note that INDIE Protégé focuses on essential, fundamental business principles, while INDIE Beauty Network membership focuses, as it always has, more specifically on running soap, beauty, aromatherapy and cosmetics business. There are amazing synergies for everyone!
