Today was #FocusFriday, brought to us by Juliann Nichols and her team at Focus On You Strategy where they Bring Out the CEO in You! We were joined in studio with Rosetta and Chris Warren, Founders of Feels Like Home, an interior decorating business based in the Tampa Bay area. We begin the discussion with a reminder of the advantages of attending one of Juliann’s many CEO Exchanges. These events which are held several times each month at varying C1 Banks are an excellent resource to get feedback and ideas on how to develop further as a leader. Through small, intimate group settings, you get quality feedback on struggles and challenges you face in your business from your peers. You can find the next CEO Exchange and register online here http://focusonyoustrategy.com/events/ It was through one of these CEO Exchanges that Rosetta and Chris met Juliann. Rosetta and Chris were corporate crossovers into entrepreneurism and needed guidance in their new business venture. Juliann and the groups helped Chris and Rosetta learn the value of their product and how not to always want to discount services. They also were taught the value of processes, a key area that Juliann brings to the table in any discussion on leadership as well as how to close the sale. They share with us some of the struggles they had and still have as a married couple in business and how they overcome those obstacles and it is from this that Juliann stresses the idea of backup planning, another key area of success that she works with leaders on in her CEO Exchanges. Since 2014, Feels Like Home has worked with many homeowners and Realtors as well as business owners to bring a fresh look to their interiors. Handling locations across the Bay area they can do that for you as well. Learn more about them and their services at www.feelslikehome2u.com or give them a call today at 727-330-2356.
