Good morning everyone and welcome to my next installment of my Midweek Wednesday Blog.
Today I'm talking about my Networking and Connecting with people. This last year has been a massive week for me as I've taken on a brilliant Collaboration project with an Old Connection of mine.
In business we all know how important it is to make the right connections and build friendships/relationships with our potential clients and customers. Without this connection between the two of you things may not work in the right way and it may not become the big experience that you thought it would be.
I've recently been back in touch with an old friend of 14 years and I was generally talking with him, about business, life and all things from back in the day. I said I may need some advice from him about a t-shirts range that I wanted to do, This then turned into an absolutely amazing opportunity to have a collaboration range together.
Did I think twice...?
OH Hell No I didn't!!
This was an incredible opportunity to be able to work along side a very dear friend of mine who is incredible, amazing and honest in everything he does and what better way to work with someone, someone you have followed and loved for 14 years+.
The craziest thing for me was I was just talking a friend and have had the most amazing opportunity come up for literally just continuing to follow my dear friend and reconnecting after years.
So if you're sat there and thinking to yourself I can't do this. Do you know what you never know what opportunity can arise and come from you just making connections whether there old, current or new connections.
Just go for it, make that first step that may even change your life. Send a message, write a text, make a phone call, send an email do whatever feels right to you and just make some new friends/connections and you never know what may be sent your way!
I know I certainly wasn't expecting anything like this to happen to little old me sat over here enjoying the company and music (of course) whilst just chatting.
Why not take 10mins today to sit and just send a message to that lost connection or that friend you check in with everyday, or that new person you spoke to in a coffee morning or event. You never know!
With all the above in mind, why not take some time to make new connections, network with other people you might find they have a product or service you need and you have a product or service that they need. This could be the opening or pathway you need to give yourself that confidence boost and your business a boost too.
Always think outside the box and make sure you are networking and making those connections. Don't be afraid of what could happen just go for it.
My Collaboration -
The Rainbow Range Inspired and Designed By Maria Harris and Kenny Moore (MSK)
When I spoke to Kenny I advised I was thinking of doing a LGBTQ Range to add into my Business as it's an area that not many people cover so I wanted to bring that to my range to make me different to all the other printing service businesses out there.
This is where the Collab was created with Kenny's inspirational thoughts and ideas the excitement for the both of us have been incredible and is still growing as we're drip feeding our ideas out there to start gaining the interest in for the different ranges.
Promo t-shirts have been created for the range, which Kenny is amazing at the promotions and images for this range both as himself and also for the Delightful and Devine MSK as well.
(Pictured above) Kenny's well known phrase "Hey Hey Hey It's MSK" with Kenny also from doing a weekly Radio Show on Brickie's Radio where this phrase is used weekly.
Keep an eye out on my Facebook for the other promo images as they also arrive too.
The full set of ranges myself and Kenny have worked on are available on the website. We know have a few different ranges so please do go and check them out.
Within this amazing opportunity Kenny's other business Sew Fabulous is currently being Filmed for a TV Show - (Follow Kenny for more updates on this) So I've had the great opportunity to Create some Sew Fabulous Crew t-shirts for the productions team.
This is a truly amazing and incredible time for me and MHBiz at this time to have such an inspiring person on board and making a Dream Team together just from reconnecting with Kenny a few months ago.
Keep using the hashtags, share away and why not come and check out the full range when launched, follow Kenny and follow myself in our amazing journey.
Just remember you never know when a friendship can become a Business Connection with an amazing opportunity, Just go for it and make it a time to remember.
