Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears, authors of the inspiring The Boss of You, which I raved about the week before last, are very kindly offering a Loobylu reader a copy of their book. I am still loving the book and can't recommend it highly enough.
So ... what I would like you to do: One of my favourite exercises in the book for helping to establish a feeling for the kind of business you are creating was to define the "personality" of you business (p. 31). The idea is the pretend that your business is a person and write a profile which describes this person... what it might wear, where it likes to hang out and so on. All I want you to do to be in the running for this book is to leave a comment with a description of a meal which would reflect your business's (or a business you would like to create) personality. Mine is a warm croissant with butter on a cute slightly chipped vintage plate alongside a mug of warm milky coffee. Not exactly surprising but it works for me.
So leave me a comment! And I will write down all the numbers of the comments about meals on bits of paper and Lily will draw one out of a hat. Good luck!
