This is some smaller text here.


I promised a review of what I took away from Jess Constable’s Business with Intention Workshop, so here goes.

These were my main takeaways:

01. A clear vision is really important when running a business. Sometimes we only look at where we want to be short-term (within 6-12 months), but what we sometimes forget to do is look long-term (past 12 months). Writing down how you envision you life to be 5 years from now can really shape how you want your business to be 5 years from now. It can also keep you on point and make sure the decisions you are making today are going to push you towards that vision.

02. Having a purpose for your business is important. Jess defines your Purpose as YOUR TALENTS + HOW YOU HELP PEOPLE = YOUR PURPOSE.

03. It is really important to have balance. Many of the other attendees reward themselves every few months if they meet their deadlines, profit goals and so on. Taking a trip to a local attraction every other month, taking one Friday off every month, and getting manicures once a month were all things mentioned and all rewards I’m interested in. Now to choose which one I like most!

I got to share my insight with fellow attendees on the importance of branding, the steps you should take before you hire a designer and important things to consider when working with a designer.

So, should you go to the workshop?

YES! Not only was the information great, but meeting other like-minded business owners in your area was the most valuable part.

You can read my testimonial and see lots of pictures here.

Have a great Tuesday!

  • Love that you went Amanda! Would love to go – thanks for the recap!

    • Amanda Genther

      No problem! I’m sure she will have another in Chicago soon. It helps a lot when you’re still in the ‘idea’ phase!

  • Thank you so, so much for your great review of the workshop! I’m so happy that you had such a great time and got so much out of it- especially meeting the awesome business owners in Chicago. : )

  • Amanda,

    It sounds like the workshop you went to was a very valuable one. I am starting a company here in Israel with plans on moving it, and my family back to Colorado in 2 years. Every decision I am making right now is revolved around that geographical move.
    We are thinking of our branding everyday right now since our offical launch will not be till Oct./Nov.

    Thanks for sharing!
