EC Local Meetings

Each month Jon and I host the Entrepreneurs Circle local meeting in Liverpool. The meeting takes place in the Raddisson Blu Hotel on Old Hall Street and is open to all EC members in the region. The Entrepreneurs Circle is an online business development subscription, made for business owners to enhance their marketing, understand their numbers and grow their business.

Each monthly meeting has a topic, in which attendees can discuss and help each other on aspects of the business they may be struggling in. November’s meeting took place on Wednesday 16 November 2022 and the topic this month was ‘Goal setting for 2023’.  This month’s meeting was my personal favourite so far, as we got to hear from a variety of new attendees and learn more about their business. As a marketing student, hearing multiple business owners strategize and talk about what’s working well in their business, whilst also giving my advice, is invaluable experience.

Goal Setting for 2023

As the year draws to a close, it is normal for business owners to be planning for 2023. However, with the current financial climate, survival seems to be overstepping goals. However, this does not have to be the case. As a business owner, you oversee your own destiny. Don’t bury your head in the sand in times of difficulty. Rise above this and take control of what you want to achieve in the next year. The most important piece of advice we can give is to adapt. What can you do in your business to adapt?

Lets face it, problems don’t just disappear. As much as we would like them to, they just don’t. As the year draws to a close, it is crucial that you are forward planning for the next year and have a plan in place to combat the current financial climate. You are responsible for your business, so what are you going to do to ensure that you not only survive but make 2023 one of your best years to date!

One of the longest (and most loyal) attendees Helene Sewell, The Business Navigator, spoke about how recently her and her partner booked a weekend away, purely to plan for next year. They spent the weekend in an Airbnb and discussed what strategies they could implement into their business in the next year, without any distractions. Helene found this super beneficial as it allowed her to put her opportunities and threats into perspective and devise a strategy.
