I would like to share with you the blog post Katina sent me yesterday regarding how she enjoyed the weekend too and that she planned to share with her business list. Earlier this year I shared a blog post entitled, if you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far get help! This is a perfect example of just how far you can go-together!
Amazing Weekend Adventure!
This past weekend, Momentum went to the Harlem Book Fair that was held at the Jack Reardon Center in Kansas City, KS. One of our clients, Michelle Gines, the owner of Purpose Publishing sent an email about the event and I thought: Why not? I’m not a publisher or author, but I LOVE Books!
The plan was to SHARE a table with her and get a feel for how an author, speaker and publisher would market products and services so I can help my clients (research you know). One of PP’s newest clients Mr. Robert Stevenson sold almost half of his first shipment at the event.
Right before the event, Michelle called and told me she had a scheduling conflict and asked if I would go and represent Purpose Publishing. I agreed and we met to discuss what she needed me to do.
You will never guess what happened! The event became a LAUNCH event for Momentum Business Concierge. We got a chance to do two things at once:
- Represent Purpose Publishing, sell some books, introduce aspiring authors to her service and meet some great contacts for the future.
- Introduce MOMENTUM to the world! I was able to visibly SHOW potential clients what Momentum can do for them while learning more about what authors are looking for.
What an Amazing Weekend! I look forward to working with Purpose Publishing and their authors more in the future. We will also look into CUSTOMIZING Authors Only Packages. Authors have to treat their books like a business and I have some ideas how to help them achieve their goal.
Until next time,
There may be others of you out there that have an idea for a book, own a small business or speak for a living. If so, I know that you to have found out that you cannot be in two places at one time or if you've come to understand that being a solopreneur is not as easy as it looks, get help. You'll be glad that you did.
To Your Success,
