Sun is shining and it is a beautiful morning. Please, come on in! I have fresh coffee, blueberries and some good news for you.
As I have told you earlier, I have a dream. A dream that I have had for a long time, but have not yet had the courage to fulfill. All this is about to change. Baby steps, I know, but it is happening. The ground work for starting my own business is in good speed. Soon enough, I'll have my own firm and I can full-time start working with interior design, home styling, photography and more things that are close to my heart. Each day that goes by, makes me more and more convinced that this is what I want to pursue, this is what makes me smile.
As you know, I'm on maternity leave now (my youngest son is turning 4 months in a couple of weeks). I still have a few months to go to prepare myself and my family for the change to come. I have good time to refine my business idea and what it consists of. I want to be well prepared and ready for the future opportunities and challenges. The ride can be bumpy sometimes, I know, but the better you know the road, the smoother it'll be.
A very important part of being an entrepreneur is to know people, the right people. Networking is something one can do even when on maternity leave. I have started to build my network and have actively seeked possible instances and firms for cooperation. I have noticed that Instagram is actually a very effective channel for this and it is a great way to increase your visibility and acquire those important contacts that you need now and in the future. My goal is to increase the visibility, the number of my followers and become an influencer in the near future. This is an essential part of laying the ground for becoming an entrepreneur (now it is a great time to check my Instagram account @ekodesignandchaos, if you haven't done that already ;).
And now to the good news I told you about. I'm happy to say that I have already found some great partners for cooperation through Instagram. I have started to co-work with the great people at BGANordic and I am super excited to have the possibility to cooperate with them. BGANordic sells the most amazing posters and all things related to photography in their webshop that has over 40 000 happy customers in Finland, Sweden and Norway. I am very happy and thankful for this opportunity.
The cooperation with BGANordic consists of two parts at the moment. I have my own discount code (MILLA20) that gives you 20% discount of the whole collection of posters at both www.bgafotobutik.se and www.bganordic.fi. This discount code is valid until the end of september 2017. I strongly recommend for you to take advantage of this great possibility to order some amazing posters to beautify the walls of your your home too :)
The other part of our cooperation is a competition that I'm organizing on my Instagram account. I'm giving away a free poster (one of the amazing posters in the picture below, free of choice). The competition is still ongoing until saturday 19.8. Join, and you'll have a chance of winning this great price!
This being said, I'm so glad that you stopped by. So nice to talk with you as always, my dear.
Come again soon and we'll talk some more. Until then, take care and enjoy the sunny autumn days!
