Why do people start a small business? We’ve all got a story that says something about what motivates us to take on one of the hardest jobs possible – setting up and running a small business or organisation. Last year an unexpected family business meant that since July 2017 I visited Saint Lucia four times in 12 months. Each time, I needed to find a range of local services from lawyers to plumbers, car hire companies to restaurants. I want to call and pick-up a takeaway, book a cab, find a tile shop. By the third visit, I’d pretty much given up looking online for businesses.
There are some great businesses in St Lucia. People working really hard to make a living and provide quality services and goods. But, if you can’t be found – or when people find you, they can’t actually transact with you – you’re losing business and money!
Only marginally worse than having no ‘shop window’ on the web, is having one that doesn’t do you justice.
I want to help small businesses, promote themselves professionally. Whether your market is local or the thousands of visitors who visit Saint Lucia every year, the network of professionals who work with ThinkFirst can help.
I’ve spent the last 25 years working in communication, marketing and PR and I love what I do. For almost all of that time, I’ve worked for myself because aside from the freedom, I enjoy the pressure of finding the best solution for every client.
