Community, Women in Business and How to Win Awards with Peace Mitchell – Episode 99

by | Nov 18, 2020 | Podcast | 0 comments

Hey there, my fabulous listener, welcome to episode 99 of the Small Business Made Simple Podcast.  I’d sing 99 Red Love Balloons to you but hey, I can’t sing and well, you simply don’t need that in your life!  Although now I’ve mentioned it – you are probably singing it …. He he

Thank you for lending me your ears today – I know you have lots of choices, so I sincerely appreciate me being one of them!

If you’re a first time listener, super super welcome, I am so pleased to have you here.  I am your host Jenn Donovan, and it’s my job, via this podcast, social media and everywhere else actually, to make your business life simpler. 

I’m a thought leader when it comes to marketing here in Australia and I’m a marketing strategist for small business.

Why? Because business can be lonely and hard and complicated and it’s hardly ever easy, but it should be simple or at least simpler, so that’s my commitment you to on the Small Business Made Simple podcast!

This episode is sponsored by Spend With Us – an online marketplace for rural and regional businesses, where you can spend your dollars knowing you are supporting 600+ rural and regional businesses.  Thinking gift cards for Christmas?  Buy a Spend With Us gift card and they can choose to spend it with any of our vendors!

Today I have Peace Mitchell on as my guest.  Peace, along with her sister Katy, run the Women’s Business School and AusMumpreneur – which I was lucky enough to win silver and gold at their awards in 2020.

Peace has come on to chat you to about why community is so important to your journey, no matter where you are, why applying for awards can simply be part of your marketing plan and why having dreams and talking about dreams is just so darn important.

I’ll let Peace tell you her story:

I hope you might be inspired to add “applying for awards” to your marketing plan next year – it’s certainly going to be on mine!  Join me?  Think of the celebrations we could have together!!

Ok, so that’s it for ep 99 – I’ll be back for 100 next Thursday – holy crap on a cracker – 100 ….

It’s going to be fabulous because it’s a subject I’ve never actually done an episode on!  Yep in 99 episodes, none of them have been about this marketing strategy!  You’ll be so surprised when you find out what it is – you’ll be like “Jenn, seriously, what the???”

Anyway, have a fabulous week. 

If you’re enjoying this podcast, which if you have listened to here – you hopefully are, don’t forget to subscribe, share this episode with another superstar business owner who’s doing the daily grind and would appreciate someone making their business simpler, and leave a rating or review to show how much you are loving this free weekly content.

Thanks to Shay Bianco who left me a review “Yes! Finally, an actionable podcast that is to the point.  No 10 minute intro or fluff.  Expert tips that are delivered in an energic way by Jenn.  Plus, she has the best intro music ever!”

Thanks Shay and yes, I agree – I love my intro music.  Took me days to find it all the way back 99 episodes ago, but I still love it today!  Thanks again for leaving that review.

See you next week on the podcast for episode 100!  But in the meantime, let’s hang out on social and get social on social – you’ll find me on Instagram, Facebook and my fav LinkedIn.

But whatever you do,

……..remember small business peeps, as my opening song says, there’s no point in dreaming small!
