Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears Present

The Boss of You

It's a book. It's a blog. It's a guide to running a business your way.

New Terrain for the Boss Ladies

February 2nd, 2010 by Lauren · 5 Comments

Oh my goodness. Where to begin?

We’re only a month into 2010, and already it’s a doozy. Emira’s started maternity leave (more on that soon); we just hired a new employee; and we’re in a bit of a tug-of-war on a business matter that I don’t really think I should talk about here, but will just say that it has eaten up far too much of our time and it would be really nice to have it settled, stat. Oh, and we celebrated our 10th anniversary in business.

So, you know, business as usual: it’s exciting and crazy and all kinds of things are happening.

Plus, the Grassroots Business Association chapter we started here in Vancouver is going great guns, as my mother would say. Every event has been at capacity, and next week’s is no exception, which is terribly exciting and fun.

So you can imagine that I am just sitting around thinking to myself, “What am I going to do with all this spare time I’ve got?”

And the answer, of course, would be to start blogging for BC Business magazine.

Yup, Emira and I now have our very own blog at BC Business, called (what else?) The Boss Ladies. Our first post went up about an hour ago: “Kiss Serial Entrepreneurship Goodbye“. It’s all about falling in love with your business and sticking with it for the long term. Kinda the opposite of being a serial entrepreneur. Get it?

We’ll be blogging there weekly (though for the first little while, it’ll just be me, since Emira’s kinda busy right now). Got ideas for topics? Let us know in the comments.

    best of luck in your new adventure! Your book was an inspiration to me when I got serious about my business, and am re-reading it as I take my biz full-time in the next few months. I have recommended it to so many people… I can’t wait to see what else is in store!

    Your book was great. I’m getting my new website up soon, finishing my business plan and looking for clients!

    Can you offer any tips on how one should go about researching and tracking down potential clients?

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Mahsa,

    That’s a great question — not sure I’m well qualified to answer, but I will give it a shot! Watch for an upcoming blog post wherein I will try and share what little I know about sales prospecting.

    I look forward to reading your blogs about business. I am really looking for some inspiration at the moment as I am a novice entrepreneur.

    Ooh…I can’t wait to read even more for you:)
    I am heading over there right now.

    What i’d lke to read more about is….really staying true to you in business and how to develop a concept around that. I don’t want to be everything to everyone….
    It’s hard to stay focused.

    I have your book and love, love, love it!!!
    I am rather new to all of this and am just starting to find my way and figure it all out!!
    Thanks for all you share:)
