Hi, I'm Ant from Emanation.
Many of you already know me but for those that don't, here's a little bit of my story:
I worked for large corporations for the first 10 years of my working life. That's a decade of being treated like a number, building something for someone who I have no connection with and basically being a slave to a clock and a computer. I knew there had to be something more than that for me and then I was offered the opportunity to work with best friend and take the risk of going from the known into the unknown. To go from having a wage and minimal responsibility for the "Big Picture" to running a small business was a risk but today, I am glad I did.
It wasn't all roses though. I have been where you are. Missing important family events or milestones because of the demands of my business and feeling like the whole reason I started this thing in the first place was a pipe dream. I knew, however, that things didn't have to be like this, so I took that mindset and applied my values to what I was doing and all of sudden I realised how to solve my problems. I needed to do what I love and am passionate about in order to really realise my dreams as a business owner.
Now my passion is to help others connect with their core values and passion and apply this to their businesses through implementation, values alignment and social media. The changes this can make to both your experience and your client's are amazing, not to mention how much happier you will be with your business and it's direction. When you live and work to your values, you can't help but love your life and your business!
If you would like to touch base with me and see if I can help you make that connection and start loving the life of a business owner, the feel free to email me at [email protected] or phone me on 1300 535 022.
P.S. I still get to work with my best friend AND we both love being able to help small business owners get back to loving owning their businesses! Click here to find out more about Shannon.
P.P.S. Yes, my name is Ant. I chose to shorten my name and use it professionally because of what the ant represents to me. Working with a community to protect, grow and thrive and carrying ten times my weight without even breaking my stride. Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you the name suits me.
