There are many reasons why women, and especially moms go into business on their own. In today’s world, the economy, and the lack of true maternity leave benefits (at least in the U.S.) can be the first reasons to come to mind. The problem is that many businesses start off with no direction, or with no consideration for the things that make someone passionate in life, hey, I am talking business here! By the same token, the strengths and aptitudes of the new entrepreneur are not always put to good use in the business venture.
Fortunately Kim Reddington, the founder and CEO of Cereus Women is out to teach moms how to turn their skills and talents into a successful home based service business. “Wanting to teach moms how to have a lifestyle that allows them freedom and flexibility to work and be there at the right moments for their children. We can do it all, if we have the right tools, the right knowledge, and the right goals”, she says ardently.
Starting from the idea that everyone has passions and gifts, Kim takes you on a tour of yourself, so you get to know yourself better, and discover ways to use your strengths to go with your goals while you build an empire on something that drives you, and matches you, and your past experiences.
To that end Cereous Women has many tools available. Among them, is a superb workbook “Unlocking your Talents from Within: a simple 4 step simple process to discovering your talents and align them with your dreams” that helps you pair up your personality, knowledge, skills with a business idea, and shows you how to identify what your dreams and ambitions are to help get you where you want to go. This 8 chapter workbook is not only easy to read and use, it is also extremely helpful and takes you step by step into your own specifics. After reading and using "Unlocking You Talents from Within'. I appreciated how it can be implemented in all aspects of a woman's life. This is truly what can make a difference for working moms out there, and having Kim’s support and expert advice has no parallel in my mind. I specially love the fact that Kim does not only say she is out to support women and their businesses, she does it. Proof of it is how she recommends others in her own site. Others that are also out to help moms and their businesses.
Although there is a full kit in the works to complement this first workbook which is sold for $7.99 on www.cereuswomen.com “unlocking your talents from within” is an extension of "4 Lifesaving Keys to a Successful Service Business for Mothers" which according to the author explains how to find what your passions, dreams , talents, and skills are that cause you to feel alive. There is also a highly recommended marketing book available from Kim Reddington called "The Magic Ezine Formula: How to Guarantee that YOUR Ezine Will Be Opened and Read". http://www.cereuswomen.com/ezinedetails.html
But, it is not all about books and workbooks. It is a complete shop as consults are offered based on a program or package for any business topic you might need help on. Programs come in both group and one-on-one. Many of my programs concentrate on developing that foundation and providing the tools required to take your business to another level. Cereus women can also help when you are wondering if you have the right message for your target market, or when you are struggling to get clients, for example.
Guidance and support from someone that is not only very successful, but has built her world around the premise of helping other women reach their goals, and having a balanced life. Kim is a true asset to others who are also driven, are wanting to thrive, and need some assistance. She truly understands, and considers the different factors that come into play at each different scenario. Best of all, she lights up and ignites what is truly valuable to you. Ensuring that everyday, you will wake up wanting to do more for yourself and your dreams.
