After the last few years and what we are still enduring as business owners, one thing that’s for certain amongst all this uncertainty, is that connection is key. We are all craving it! Not only to surround ourself with uplifting and like minded individuals to brainstorm latest ideas; but to feel like we’re in this together, supporting each other on this journey.

More than ever, connections are going to be essential for business, not only for our own feel good factor, but for collaborations, partnerships and generating clients too. One thing’s for sure, the more people can relate to you and your mission, the more you are going to grow. People want to feel a connection with those they are buying from.

It’s the core values that shape your business and the essence of what you stand for. It will determine how you show up in all your messaging and are perceived. It will impact on your brand colours, brand stories to share; and ultimately your brand images; so it’s definitely worth spending some time to consider

The simplest and most effective approach is to think of 5 key words that best describe you, your brand and values. They could centre on your beliefs, how you work or what makes you unique and special. They are most likely the words that are going to be front of mind so try not to overthink it. As you and your brand evolves, these key words may change too so really feel into what feels good right now and for what you want to achieve.

Ask yourself a few questions:

What do I want to be known for?

What Impact do I want to make?

What are my values and beliefs?
