Alana Jones, the Mum behind Sparkling Dragon Designs, is one of the finalist for the 2012 Connect2Mum Award for Favourite Handmade Mumpreneur of the Year.
As you know we asked each of the finalist what was the best business advice they received, here is Alana's answer.
Hello everyone my name is Alana Jones. I am the creative hands and mind behind Sparkling Dragon Designs, the place to shop for unique handcrafted jewellery.
One of the best pieces of business advice that I have received is website related; and that is to make sure your contact information is readily available. People don’t want to have to hunt all over your website to find out how to contact you. It needs to be clearly visible or just one click away.
I would also like to share my most essential business tool, the “TO DO” list. No matter what the task is write it down. Then you can prioritise what needs to be done and cross tasks off when completed. Aim to cross off at least one task per day. It is nice to look at your list at the end of the day and have a sense of achievement.
