    February Carousel

    Story Brand Marketing Video Series.  
    Clarifying your message so people will listen.
    As entrepreneurs, we all have something great to share with the world!
    But how do we clearly communicate what we have
    without our message getting lost in the fog?
    We’ve all experienced those confusing marketing messages ( I know I’ve written many myself:)
    If the message takes too much energy to figure out, most people won’t bother trying.
    If you confuse, you loose.
    If you want to clarify your message so the right customers will listen,
    then this series can help.
    And, it’s all based on story 🙂
    Seeing your customer as a character who has a need, want, or desire
    and you as the guide who will help them get there.
    Want to learn the steps
    of implementing a Story Brand strategy?
    Let’s learn this together!
    There are 8 Modules, each consisting of a few short videos and exercises.
    There’s a handbook I can copy for each person.
    I’m proposing we try to do 2 modules each time we meet.
    That would mean getting together once a week for 4 weeks, maybe 5
    (depending how much we want to interact with each other and the material).
    How do Mondays sound?
    I would like to get started this week,
    February 10th at my house.
    I know it’s short notice, but if you think you’d really like to do this,
    and you think you can make it work, just dive in!
    Which time works best for you?
    9-11 am  OR
    12:30-2:30 pm   OR
    7:30-9:30 pm
    Send me back your first and second choices by Saturday.
    I’ll finalize one of these time slots with you by Sunday.
    And by Monday we’ll start learning how to clarify our message.
    There is no charge for the course.  I purchased it for our own business a few years ago
    and I’m just happy to share it with everyone.
    If you have any questions give me a shout.  469-0704
    Hope to hear back from you!
    Carol Anne
    Here’s a link to a 14 min Story Brand video that explains more about the strategy.
    If you are interested in the strategy, but the time doesn’t suite you let me know.  It might work out to do another time.

    Carousel Sunday Hiking Group

    We (Amanda and Carol) will be leading hikes on Sunday afternoons in June.

    The first hike (June3) will be Shackford Head and we will leave from the church at 2:00. This hike is near Eastport so make sure you bring your passport. Water and a snack would be other good things to bring.

    The second week (June 10) we will be going over to Ministers Island (near Saint Andrews) and this hike needs to work around the tide schedule so we plan on leaving right after the service. Bring a packed lunch and we’ll picnic on the island soon after we get there. Also, there is a suggested donation of $2 to hike on the island.

    This Sunday (June 17) we will be going to Ganong Nature Park. We plan on leaving right after the service, so bring a lunch and meet in the SCV parking lot at 12:30.
