News from the South Island

Well, the winter woollies are well and truly out, along with colds and the flu as reflective of recent apologies.

We love it when you keep your bugs to yourself but don’t forget to send apologies to your facilitator!

What a fantastic month for Venus South Island! Creating opportunities for more business women to benefit from this successful format, with Ferrymead launched on the 30th May, and coming up Dunedin June 7th and Queenstown on the 8th.

Member Success Thought

Every now and then I hear feedback about members feeling under pressure to purchase products or services during a RAVE. As women, we like to get to know each other, and will bristle at feeling under pressure. It’s not conducive to developing relationships.

It’s about talking about your business in a way that gets us talking about it, and if we need your services or want to buy from you, we’ll let you know!
