Finding your querencia (and getting your business mojo back)



It's relentless being a business owner. And then there's crazy people like me who decide to run three businesses simultaneously (thecreativecollective.com.au, thetrainingcollective.com.au and awardshub.com), and have 2 kids, and write a book (nokidding.com.au) and do a heap of speaking and promotion around that. 

It's all fun and games... until your mojo starts running a bit low. And when you're the captain of a decently sized ship, the journey must continue. But how do you go on if you're running low on fuel. How do you rally the troops when you could do with a little rallying yourself?

Yes I'm being blatantly honest and sharing that even I have low vibe days, and sometimes feel like I've lost my mojo.

But what's important to discuss here is not about losing it, but how to get it back, and quick! 

Everybody is different and that's what makes the world such a wonderful place.

But I figure if I share what works for me, it might be helpful to you if you find yourself in the same predicament. So here's six things that tend to work for me when my feet are dragging:

1. Go search some motivational quotes on the internet or on Pinterest - whether you've used it before or not, do yourself a favour and head over to pinterest. Type into the search bar 'quotes' or 'motivational quotes' or any other combinations of keywords and scroll through until you find a quote which resonates with you. Look at it. Stare at it. Make it your screensaver or wallpaper. Share it. Just connect with it. Or, create your own! I love using Wordswag or Over to make mine on my iPhone. Sometimes getting the creative juices going is therapy in itself. Read More

Testimonials
Recent Happy Clients
"Thank you so much to you both for your unending patience and support. I am extremely happy with it. Maybe one day I’ll get to meet you in person! This was a first for me working with Skype and emails but it all worked very well. I must say I would have rather done it face to face but that’s the old me and how I’ve done things for so long. Now I think I could manage working with this media again. Thank you again for an inspiring and exciting process. You both bring a lot of strengths to your work such as planned organisation, clear and empathic communication and of course you showed patient determination to help me through the experience."

Bobbi Cruice, Swing High
"Very easy to make Skype appointments, great service from a knowledgeable and friendly staff member"

Belinda Watman, AAA Finance and Insurance
"A jargon free, relevant and helpful introduction to social media"

John Vandeleur, Turner Freeman Lawyers
"Yvette and Kat are the most energetic, vibrant and trend-setting team I have ever encountered. Always cheerful, smiling, superbly intelligent and on-the-ball they make the graphic design process a wonderful and happy adventure of discovery. What's more I feel "safe" in their capable hands as beyond their obvious talents they work to the highest standards of ethics and integrity which can be a rare commodity in today's commercial world. I retained the Creative Collective on the basis of my initial impression of Yvette herself and as such my expectations were set "very high" - I was not disappointed - my expectations were met "admirably".by both Yvette and Katrina. What more can I say - they are the best! "

Marie Walton, ArtinU
"Every question was explained clearly in a manner that anyone tech illiterate could understand. Creative Collection also made noteable suggestions for improvements throughout every step. We were very happy with the customer service offered and with our new very professional looking web site!"

Michelle Denton, Denton Engineering
"I had a Skype session with Peter this afternoon and he resolved the issue in about 15 minutes. So easy for a SME! I am so impressed with the level of support I received over this technical glitch which is probably largely a reflection of my lack of technical savvy. Many thanks to Peter, Mel and Kat for the quick and empathetic response. Kind regards Michelle (another raving fan of the Creative Collective team)"

Michelle Burnheim, Michelle Burnheim & Associates
""Just wanted to say thanks very much for getting Peter to call me & help me with my Outlook/email account. It now seems to be working and I really appreciate you guys chasing me up and helping me out with it. Thankyou!!!" "

Grub Organics, Nikki Brown - Grub Organics
"I can highly recommend Yvette Adams as a presenter regarding how social media can not only be used as an effective marketting tool, but also how it can be utilised to enhance varied facets of your business plan and strategy. "

Digital Economy Principal Project Officer, John Williams
"Yvette had our Wheatbelt Conference delegates engaged from the word go! Her down-to-earth approach and authentic presenting style meant that her audience was able to connect with her message and absorb some great tools, tips and tricks to digitally develop. Highly recommend! "

RDA Wheatbelt (Western Australia),
"My favourite presentation of the day was listening to Yvette Adams talking about Marketing in the Digital Age. Yvette certainly opened my eyes up to how using social media can help to market my business but also improve and enhance my communication with my existing clients."
