I met today’s guest, Winsome Kirton, after speaking at my first Dream Space event right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We sat down for coffee afterward and I loved her story so much, that I KNEW I just had to share it with you all!
Like most entrepreneurs, she saw a need and instead of complaining about it she decided to take matters into her own hands and create a business. Her passion for putting the spot light on local shops has created such sense of community that even Oprah’s Stedman Graham is taking notice!
Her business, Pack Elephant, packages goods from local mom & pop stores and then presents them to realtors, event planners and hotel managers to give as client appreciation gifts. Not only does this provide local business owners more visibility, but it also engages travelers to appreciate the heart beat of the community they are visiting.
Winsome’s passion for what she does is evident by the creative effort she has put forth to get herself out there. You’ll also appreciate her positive mindset and the advice she gives to fellow entrepreneurs listening in. She’ll touch on:
~Where to put your focus when you hear the word “no”
~Why it’s important to keep your OWN promises — ones you make to yourself
~How an optimistic business approach can change everything
And she doesn’t mention it outright….but after listening to her speak, I think you’ll be able to gather the one character trait that will make or break your business. =)
