Hi, I’m Carmen Sognonvi and welcome to my blog! In this video, I’m going to give you a quick overview of who I am and what this blog is all about.
This blog is all about how to run a successful local business.
I’m one of the owners of a martial arts school in Brooklyn, New York, called Urban Martial Arts.
I’ve always been a bit of a business and marketing nerd. I’m constantly devouring business books, marketing blogs, magazines on entrepreneurship. But I find that I often have to sift through the information to find the few nuggets that apply to my business.
Small business is such a broad term. It can refer to everything from a solopreneur working out a home office, to a business with 1,500 employees.
And when you’re a local business that relies on people actually walking through your door to provide them with your product or service and get paid for it, you’re dealing with a specific set of constraints that’s very different from someone who does business online.
So what I hope to do with this blog is provide info that’s relevant especially to local business owners.
I’ll be talking about how to…
Make more money
Attract more customers
Retain customers you have
Set up systems and processes that will help you grow
…and how to still have a life outside of the business.
