Over the summer, I have been working on numerous projects. One area I want to work more in is innovation and support for new entrepreneurs. I have designed this first freebie which is a journal prompt and from the program Fearless Flow which has three modules, to help a new entrepreneur or an entrepreneur get back into their flow. Here is the link on Teachable and is composed of three modules: Respectful You, Relevant You, & Relational You, https://besup.teachable.com/ Yes if you have worked with Indigenous Methodologies your seeing all your favourite words applied to business now. As someone who has worked in Indigenous Methodologies, this is a course that is much about self, community, and the entrepreneur journey.

This uniquely designed entrepreneur program has been designed using a design that brings out your personal best, in a way that shifts and supports success.

A huge motivator for me in developing this program was based on my vulnerabilities and moving past the barriers of underemployment.

Thank you!

beSuperior will be hosting an Indigenous Knowledge Conference in the Fall in Thunder Bay with the Title “Mentoring a Generation of Leaders’

The focus of this Professional Development opportunity will be determined as time and effort to hear from prospective presenters. If you feel you’d like to present please submit your information to me at besuperiorlearning@gmail.com

There are many themes to look upon which are the layers of support we need to do what we need to do well: Land based, resilience, family, self care, wellness, safety, cultural teachings, health, education, mentoring, & entrepreneurship.

I have a larger vision of building more supports for youth.  Identifying what this means, and how this looks for the north shore of Lake Superior.

While the conference will have an approach of Indigenous Methodologies, the conference will focus on being as open to partnerships and in recognition of making helping to support better relationships and build support.

Parameters of presenters should fall under:

Respectful: what is it that I have to offer that relates to respect.

Relevance: what or how or why is what I have to share relevant.

Reciprocity: how does what I have to offer give back to the community, and even lending itself to sustainability? Or what or how is this sustainable?

Funders

At the moment, beSuperior will be seeking funders who can help to support this conference.

 

 

Using Instagram

See this Forbes article which features Celinne Da Costa is an international life design and story coach story on how she used Instagram to grow her business.

Da Costa writes:

I started to take my Instagram account seriously in the beginning of 2016, after I realized that people were making money from it. I developed a content strategy and began carefully curating my content, trading in the selfies and oversimplified emoji captions for highly visual and professional images that involved travel, lifestyle, and design, as well as captions that focused on storytelling. Visual cohesion and a compelling tone of voice are extremely important when it comes to creating a successful Instagram account.
I built my personal brand by positioning myself as a marketing and brand strategist, photographer, and graphic designer. As my Instagram grew, I began to get inquiries via email and Direct Message from companies who found me through the platform or my blog and were interested in my work. Clients also found me through my use of hashtags, geotags, user recommendations, the Explore page, comments on similar user’s pages, and interaction with their content.

 

Entrepreneurship & Tribes

You want to make a difference. You are not sure how. One way is through developing your own business because here is where you can develop your tribe and elevate your vibe.

There are many examples of entrepreneurs who did one thing and one thing only: they followed their heart.

Depending on your circumstances, or story, entrepreneurship may be the exact thing you need. When I ventured down the journey myself, I felt consultant was the correct name for my line of work given the length of years I spent in education it seemed right. After all some of my competitors may have a higher education but 0 time spent in a job. That is 100% true. Some people with a PhD which I think could be one of my main competitors, have went from high school, to university to the Masters and straight up to the PhD. Some within the same institution! Some with some job experience. Chosing what works for you, because maybe you have lived experiences, and if you were to do an inventory of all that you have to offer, is those direct experiences, which means that is your unique skill set, which technically you can also become a consultant or specialist in.  Here is an example of a young entrepreneur who did not want to see her own grandmother without services and seen a gap, so built a business on it. Cleary her tribe is around providing that care for her grandmother and other Elders in the same situation. Her tribe, a helping one.  We all have that fire within us.

This family owned business states:

An exceptional team, including sister Avery, who heads operations, is vital too. “We hire for heart and soul,” says Hamilton, explaining that before each hire she asks, Would I want this person caring for my loved one? “You have to truly care. It’s not a job, it’s a calling. If you focus on that, clients feel it.”

That family members bring personal knowledge, experience and passion is also meaningful. “If I just wanted to make money, I could have chosen a hundred other industries,” says Hamilton, whose seen many jump into the field only to leave soon thereafter, unable to deal with the challenges. “You need to be in this because you’re passionate about exceptional care and about people being treated with the dignity and respect they deserve,” she adds. “It isn’t an easy industry, but it’s very fulfilling – if you’re in it for the right reasons.
