  • Interview with Deborah Bailey by Elisa Balabram | WomenandBiz.com
    In that environment I was always frustrated by the lack of opportunity for advancement Perhaps because I am home based I m not encountering the same obstacles some other women encounter while building a business I can t say that I feel restricted in any way Tell us about your business and the products and services it provides When I started out in coaching I called my business Deb Bailey Coaching and now it s evolved into DBC Communications It s not just about coaching but also includes training speaking and my internet radio show Women Entrepreneurs The Secrets of Success I define myself as an author career expert and speaker and I have to admit that it s hard for me to narrow down my services As a right brained person I have so many things that I enjoy doing it s hard to narrow it down Later in the summer I ll be working with Middlesex County College in NJ to provide training in business writing and customer service to businesses I also speak on topics such as how to move from employee to entrepreneur and how employees can use entrepreneurial thinking in their jobs Recently I started providing a service for entrepreneurs who want help with writing books to promote their businesses What I really want is to help people with personal development so that they can align their skills and desires with their careers and businesses I also want to do my part to promote women entrepreneurs because I don t think we get enough attention in the mainstream media That s why I started my radio show I wanted to give women entrepreneurs a place to talk about their businesses and inspire other entrepreneurs to be What inspired you to write Think Like an Entrepreneur Transforming Your Career and Getting Control of Your Life I wanted to share my experiences transitioning from employee to entrepreneur There s an emotional and mental transition that has to happen and that is rarely mentioned in the how to books Work is changing and people can no longer expect to be employed for life at one company In the book I wanted to show that employed professionals can change their thinking and take control of their careers So many people are stuck thinking that the company dictates their career and that they re powerless As an entrepreneur I learned that I had to adapt certain traits in order to survive I couldn t just sit and wait to be told what to do or let my future be decided by a manager I had to take charge of my own destiny and make my own decisions When I thought about it I realized that employees could use those traits and apply them to managing their careers Who should read this book This book is geared towards employees however entrepreneurs can also get a lot out of it In fact I ve had great reviews from entrepreneurs so they obviously

    is simply and undeniably everything and everyone Everything makes an impression Everyone makes an impression in everything they do every day Therefore it s critical that all staff members everywhere understand that no matter what they do they are marketers too What they do and how they do it what they say and how they say it sends a message that either helps or hurts a company s marketing effectiveness When a business owner understands this magical things can happen Southwest Airlines is my all time favorite example of a company that really gets it and it shows How did any outside advisors make a difference in your company Having the support of my previous employers turned partners was just an amazing gift Also as an advisor myself I know how important it is to get outside expert help so I have always sought out coaches and consultants to help me and I ve planted myself in organizations that could be very helpful If someone can truly help me shortcut the path to success and make life and business easier for me then I m foolish to not listen to them There is a problem however that I have encountered and that I think many women encounter and that is that others see us as strong and capable so they don t reach out to help Women have to learn how to ask for help People are busy trying to survive themselves They don t know you need or want help unless you speak up There are times I should have spoken up quicker or louder Tell us about Sonnier Marketing Sonnier Marketing has evolved quite a bit over the years Today our focus is speaking and training to help companies think like a marketer and marketing consulting to help companies identify and capitalize on all of the marketing opportunities inherent in their business every day When we sum it up we say that we help companies become marketing machines as we teach them out to stand out stir the pot and put marketing into action My Stir the Pot formula for marketing is a five step process that I think boils marketing down beautifully into specific actionable steps Of course I m a Cajun from Louisiana so of course I put everything in terms of food Who should read your book Think Like a Marketer What it Really Takes to Stand Out From the Crowd the Clutter and the Competition and what is the main message you d like to get across The book is for anyone who owns a business runs a business manages a department or just wants to be a smart marketer It s a highly practical guide to marketing I just lay out what everyone needs to know about marketing in a direct simple and entertaining fashion It s not technical and it s not boring And it s absolutely chockfull of tips and specific tangible actions To me it s the marketing foundation that

  • Interview with Nina Kaufman by Elisa Balabram | WomenandBiz.com
    team EB Tell us about your new program The Entrepreneur s Prenup How to Choose a Business Partner Who Won t bleep You and what inspired you to create it NK They say that experience is the name we give to our mistakes I had been working with business partnership issues for a number of years in my entrepreneur focused legal practice For marketing reasons I started writing and blogging on the subject of business partnerships and even self published an earlier version of The Entrepreneur s Prenup under a different title It listed 100 key questions in 10 different subject areas that I thought entrepreneurs would find helpful in screening and choosing their business partners The odd thing was in the course of writing the book I was subconsciously asking myself all these questions regarding my own business partner at the time And boy was I uncomfortable with the answers I received Through the process of unraveling that business partnership I began to see more clearly than ever what lead to its demise and how I contributed to it by ignoring red flags Being a couple of years older and wiser than I was when I wrote the first book I thought it was time to revise revisit and revamp the subject Hey if my program can save a woman business owner tens of thousands of dollars of heartache it will have been well worth it EB This month s theme is When all else fails What would be the first step someone whose business partnership isn t working should take NK The very first step is to get yourself in the right mindset The fact that a business partnership does not work out is not necessarily a failure I learned just as much if not more about myself my strengths and my power as an entrepreneur in closing my business partnership as I did in the 12 years that it had been active The second step and it s something I didn t do until it was too late is to bring in a third party to help facilitate the difficult conversations you ll need to have with your business partner A threshold question is is this partnership worth salvaging If there s something to be salvaged but you and your partner have developed a dysfunctional pattern of working and relating the two of you may not have the objective perspective you need to get the business back on track That s where a third party can help Or if you decide that the partnership can t be saved you ll have to confront the details of dividing the partnership assets and winding up the company Again having a third party in the mix can help ensure that both partners remain accountable to the process and don t lapse into sabotaging behaviors This is especially helpful if you don t have a written partnership agreement EB What do you find most rewarding as a business owner NK I
