We are thrilled to have Anastasia back by popular demand to present at the Go for It Event Stage in Vancouver on October 7th at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel.
How does your business help entrepreneurs and professional women?
Through Sandbox, you as a business owner have the attention of my entire team and I to assist with design, PR, events and market strategy. If you are more into the DIY approach we will teach you all we know through Sandbox U – a collection of online business courses that can be taken on demand or as a group!
Need some more business attention and connection with like minded people? Ask me about the Sandbox Business Accelerator community serving entrepreneurs and small business owners. With weekly business building tips, accountability for your goals and exclusive events and offers, this is a great way to grow your business at your pace and meet some amazing, like minded entrepreneurs in the process!
What advice would you give to conference attendees?
Talk to each other. Walk up to someone and introduce yourself! See someone alone, bring them into your circle. You NEVER know who you might meet, what they have to offer and how you may be able to help and more importantly do BUSINESS with each other!
Also..come over and see me too at our booth or stop me any time!
What’s your favourite business tool?
Conversation – nothing beats it. There is no magic bullet folks. People do business with people so you just need to connect with as many perfect fit customers, inspiring like minded entrepreneurs or potential partners as possible.
What’s Your Favourite Business Book?
Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes, W. Brett. Wilson
Firestarter Sessions, Danielle Laporte
Damn Good Advice for People with Talent, George Lois
No Asshole Rule, Robert Sutton
Weird Ideas that Work, Robert Sutton
Oh and don’t stop at books!! Watch Art & Copy – A MUST for creatives! Oh and Madonna’s Truth or Dare. A must for every woman in business.
Describe in one word what keeps you going during stressful times and why?
Keeping your eye on the prizes. In my case my prizes are family, flexibility, connection, travel & money. If you want it bad enough, you will make it happen.
What do you hope conference attendees will take away from hearing you speak at our conference?
They will be energized to create the “thing”, that offering, that product, that service, that company that has been waiting for them to create all this time. They will discover the power of go/no go. And most importantly they will learn that their existing skills, knowledge, passion and love for an idea is just the beginning of something amazing!
