January of this year, I attended the WAHMdeful Year Starter of Manila Workshops…
I got myself into the workshop unsure of whether or not I really needed it. It was the first time this year that I listened to my gut feel and took the leap. True enough, both the experience and the workshop didn’t disappoint– I learned a lot from it on managing my time wisely, opened up a wonderful community where moms like me– who works and would like to work from home interacts and supports each other, and most of all, introduced me to two awesome ladies in the country– Martine de Luna of Make It Blissful, who became my blog coach and Ginger Arboleda of Manila Workshops, whom I’d love to be my business mentor (crossing fingers!).
If you’re loving the new blog, Life is Peachy, I’d say that I was able to do it better this time because I took the leap of getting myself a blog coach, even if some finds it a little weird at first. I get that some don’t really understand the need to, but even if I was somehow discouraged then, I still did it because I know that if I’m to take blogging seriously, I have to learn how to do it well. How else can I do that but with the guidance of someone who’s been in it and doing really great at it for years. It’s an investment I did for myself that I had chosen to do to better do what I love doing- to be able to share the things that I love & love doing as well as all the creative output of my everyday life with the hopes of inspiring my readers… Getting myself a blog coach has been one of the best decisions I did this year (and of course, the blog make-over with the web design genius Pat of Fancy Girl Designs, too). I should know because I’ve been getting a lot of people telling me about how much they love the blog now. Thank you! 😉
Which leads me to my next plan which is about my online business– the arts & crafts supplies + handmade trinkets shop: Peachy (formerly The Joyful Crafter). It’s been a fruitful two years, however, I feel that it’s about time to get this business grow into something more. And even if I may be able to manage to do it on my own, little by little, I feel that having a business mentor can help me get to where I want this business to be, faster!
Now speaking of which, if you’re like me who would love to have some guidance from a business expert to learn to handle the business effectively and efficiently or is still thinking of creating one, I’m happy to share with you that Ginger have come up with an entrepreneurship program called Love the Leap. It’s a three day course (with a week gap in between days) where she will help entrepreneurs, like myself, develop a concrete plan (both business and marketing plan) so that we can create and grow the business that we wish and want for ourselves!
The early bird discount is until November 08 only (tomorrow!), that’s 50%! I know P4500 is not an easy money to let go, but I’m really sure that this is a great program that gives us plenty of bang for the buck- a favorable cost-to-benefit ratio! Plus, Ginger is such an amazing woman- naturally kind.. now who wouldn’t want that for a mentor, right? I’ve had the chance to talk to her several times during the WAHMderful Masterminds and she’s very approachable and easy to talk to, the very reason I choose her to be my business mentor. I’m sure that with her I will be comfortable because she’s not at all intimidating.

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
