Richard, Tim, Shopify..lets talk .....

Posted on June 07, 2015 by Lisa Jolly

Ok, guys ... I've done the sell...... But 'wait ..there's more' ...

Now we are in the due dillegence phase, I thought it might be a perfect opportunity to launch my presentation to you on why I should be on Necker Island, cocktail in hand, after a day on the ocean, exploring, looking great, sun kissed, great hair (coming from down under, us surfy types have this hair issue) .... Happy, and soaking in the success and embellishing the journey with my funny wits....(and great tits) ..sorry..right ... Back to Necker, #buildabiz and why me....

1.  I will be the perfect example of a middle aged chick who thinks she 21, with 3 kids,  saying ...'hey, time to make it happen... And guess what you don't need to employ people to take the first step ..get them later when you can afford to...you don't need a massive outlay of cash ...a flashy store...you just need a dream ..and shopify..and get to it! The kids have left school ....its your turn...isn't there something you always wanted to do? With shopify you can do this... It will give you a worldwide platform with Buggar all outlay and I can tell my story to you to help ..I'm no techno, no code writer ..the only code I write is, what's my challenge today, and how can it be fun and successful ..so come on... 'Lets do this'! 'Lets do it with shopify' #buildabiz 

2. I live in New Zealand ..you know that little country down under from big Australia..and no we don't speak South African! I could be the down under thunder .... What a great thing for shopify to have brand exposure in our part of the world...the islands  (I could go there on promo trips, they do have Internet you know lol) ..I could set up a shopify expert in places like ...ummmmmm... Fiji, Bora Bora, Rarotonga, Samoa, I would only stay in 4 star hotels to save shopify money, of course!

3. I started an online store, then made a little shit hole of a space into a retail space...rent only $29 per day! ...now I employ a full time staff member who works there....like I said ..work hard, see a vision, and enjoy that the shopify platform is a worldwide gig ...it maybe online, but people can sense your passion and commitment...you just need to go for it and plot your goal and enjoy the adventure... I'm living proof!

4. I've sold a truck load of soap ..so the worlds smelling sweeter...and Ive also donated along the way to seashepherd..I've learnt heaps I can pass on... Like free shipping isn't so great when you live in New Zealand and people order in far away places like USA and Hong Kong ....I've learnt that social media is addictive, and can also be hurtful, and I've learnt that culture in business is priceless ..without a good culture ..its shit!

5. I've hard a bit of experience in small business, some failures, but I've never give up! If it happens to someone, it's normally me..but actually I can tell people that it's ok... You can do it ...no ones going to knock you for giving it your best, and this year the only I realised the only reason so much happens to me is because I have my heart on my sleeve and I'm putting myself out there to make my #honeybunch brand successful... I can be the Mother Hubbard for shopify ...time for Mother Hubbard to get out of the cupboard ... 

6. I am an entrepreneur who loves to travel ...look what I've done in 8 months because of my success in the shopify #buildabiz competition ...I've been to Hawaii for 10 days ..still generating sales...I travelled to Utah to hand deliver a gift pack to #natestate, where I got some great pics! Was removed from stage at a Utah club dual piano gig, purchased a bath bomb machine in Seattle, ate ice cream in San Fran whilst stalking Tim Ferris and been to Hong Kong and actually as I write I'm sitting in Hong Kong for the 2nd time this year...and guess why ...cause I am opening a Honeybunch in HK this year! WTF..that's crazy cool shit.... Why, and how did I do this...well...one thing I made a goal to Win the #buildabiz competition ...now I'm having my 2nd shopify website made www.honeybunch-hk.com and guess what, I can pay someone to do it..why ...cause I've built an awesome ...small at this stage ...but awesome business...

7. I've meet the the most wonderful people on Twitter ..I've self trained myself on Twitter, you tube and Pinterest ... Not so good at all of them yet, and Twitter isn't so big in New Zealand. I have met and formed the most amazing friendships, and together we have created #worldsisters ... In fact I have purchased www.theworldsisters.com and I hope that I can convince this most AMAZING group of woman to use this domain name for the next #buildabiz comp ...so we can all come to Necker! This part has been the most rewarding for me out of everything!

8. I made a a shark tank shaving soap for Daymond John ...since he's so smooth and we share the same birthday!

9.  Honeybunch now employs 4 staff and me ...in Hong Kong ..we will employ another 4 ... I scared shitless about Hong Kong... But this is part of the future story I can tell for shopify and woman everywhere who want to give it a go...

10. I'm the real deal...I've worked super duper hard ...I'm loyal, passionate, funny and committed to have the best fun in business and life ... My name is Lisa Jolly and I am 8000 percent (thinking 8 being lucky in China) proudly #honeybunch ........ Now I'm going to retweet this about 8888 times...thanks a bunch #honeybunch #buildabiz #richardbranson #timeferris #daymondjohn #shopify
