It is also a great opportunity to connect with fellow members, Regional Directors and visitors from around the UK and beyond.

This week we had a focused topic on Growth & Development in your business. There were lots of great tips shared, here is a selection below;

My Q how best to grow business when within confines of franchise model?

A franchise means you SHOULD have a successful model to follow.

Best business advice I ever received was to ‘do less to achieve more’ taken 12 years to finally get it! #AthenaBizHour How about you?

Best advice given I think is to be genuine. Be yourself, be true to your business. People but from people @PinpointMktg

As your business grows it can be easy to go off in too many different directions! Any advice appreciated!!

Focus on the end result. Create clear manifesto for your & your biz then question all activity

So stay with your biz plan and objectives. Great. Got it.

Absolutely! So easy to get side tracked when we love what we do. Question yourself all the time

Focused activity leads to completion which leads to more creation Our subconscious loves that

For example “will this action/activity/connection move me towards my end result?”

to grow your biz seek out alliances with businesses who have same target market as yours @Jilly_Pepper
I agree. See competition as opportunities and alliances as allies @PinpointMktg

Make the most of the quiet times by preparing for the busy times #AthenaBizHour More recipes/blog posts etc ready for later

Prep & plan is key. Know your day and prep food around it in advance. Eliminate need 4 poor choice @LoveYoutrition

Don’t buy products you will regret eating. Know what u want to achieve and base all your food choices around ur weight goal

This is my problem. When I get busy, I just eat what’s quick – I’m the same but learnt only stock with healthy quick snacks. Don’t buy what you don’t want to eat!

Every Sunday I spend 1 hr make up food & snacks 4 fridge/freezer. Am Tupperware queen. Now is habit


@AthenaNetwork Is fantastic in providing the most support!! Sometimes as much on a personal level as biz

What Athena Members Say …

Nicky Fitzmaurice

"Athena Networking has been the making of me! I have made more friends and learnt more about business tools and networking strategy in the last year than I ever thought possible. Athena’s focus on training members to be the best that they can be, whilst in a supportive and nurturing environment, gave me the confidence to learn and grow which in turn allowed my business to do the same. It is this, that is the heart of Athena. No hard sell amongst the members, we encourage one another to help where we can. I always come away from a meeting inspired and bubbling with ideas on how to grow my business. It’s a fabulous way to live, learn and grow. Nicky Fitzmaurice

“The Athena network can be distinguished from any other networking group I attend. Its structure and form mean that members who attend are committed and dedicated to proactive networking which on turn achieves tangible results.  This benefits me and my firm,  in just a two  hour monthly meeting I have the opportunity to talk to other business women about me, my business and what I need and how I can be helped.  The environment for delivering this is focused and professional. As a result referrals are made and recommendations given which, for me achieves increased clients and in turn builds greater contacts.  As a busy business women Athena also provides a forum to connect with other business women on a social / friendship basis so “all work and no play does not make this Jill a dull girl” Athena motivates me, strengthens my vision, equips and endorses me but most of all provides the fuel every business women needs to keep raising her game and stepping up to the mark.”

Rosie Mortimer

Working mostly on my own, I really appreciate the positive camaraderie of the Athena women. Whatever need or concern one has, there is always someone able, and enthusiastically willing, to help with good advice. I find the interaction tremendously stimulating and enjoyable - and highly instructive. A wonderful group to see regularly, with excellent opportunities to meet other interesting and skilled women at training days. Thank you Athena!
