Theo Paphitis #sbs Small Business Sunday Winner - Has it helped you ?
132 days ago I won a re tweet from Theo Paphitis "Dragons Den" on Small Business Sunday 14/11/2010 and on the day I get a tweet from Theo saying Congratulations, Wow Screaming, jumping for joy, tears too - one message that's all it took, from this yes I have gained followers, & facebook went a bit mad, then news paper, radio. Looking back over the months my business has gone from strengh to strengh, Ive had to apply for more funding which I got and was able to buy a top of the range embroidery sewing machine, also been finding out about copyrights & how to go about it, always learning as Ive gone along - yes it would be great if there was one book I could of read with all the answers in, but I wouldn't of learned anything you have to learn as you go along taking the positive & leave the negative, I do get lots of Direct messages asking please could I put a good word in with Theo for this weeks SBS (Small Business Sunday) Ive not got a direct line to Theo, You all have the same opportunity's as I have.
This year has been an amazing year and also one of the hardest too, being dyslexic & dyscalculia (the arithmetical equivalent of dyslexia comonly known as number blindness) here a link to The Independent on Sunday http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/number-blindness-more-common-than-dyslexia-842781.html Finding out very recently (thank you Fi & Duncan Bannatyne) that this had a name to that I cant even spell (thanks Mr Bobbins)
Being bullied at school being in a wheelchair didn't help or being dyslexic hated having to read out aloud in English too my palms would go hot, Id feel so nervous and held me head down hoping not to be picked, felt physically ill, in infant school one person for about 6/7 years picked on me every time he saw me and greeted me with "spell tree" go on spell it, and then went off just laughing.
