Hi there and welcome to Balloons Biz Academy!! I am so so excited! I love it that you here! I am Sonia Brown – a balloon decorating business owner and business coach – I help and support people new to the balloon decorating industry.
Having spent 7 years building my own balloons and venue decorating business I know how hard it can be at the beginning! Creativity is one thing – running a business is totally another! Even with a background of 10 years in sales and marketing and having been a sales coach, for 4 years before breaking away from the corporate world, there was so much to learn about getting my business out there and making a profit that enabled us to have a comfortable life.
When I first started my business I was a huge sponge soaking up as much information as I could. I was so passionate about my art with balloons I knew I absolutely wanted to be able to do this every day for as long as possible. I knew I had to make this business thing work – I have invested so much in learning how to make the most of the online world to drive my local based business forward. There have been plenty of tail backs, u-turns, diversions and dead ends along the way.
I show business owners the fast lane to building a successful full time balloon decor business that they be proud of and also pays the bills!
I am here now to cut through the noise and show you how to navigate the fast lane in growing your business.
The balloon industry is at such an exciting point in time. Social media and the ability to connect around the world has opened so much opportunity for skill development and inspiration is in pure abundance!
There is so much opportunity for balloons if you just know how to go about getting it! But getting established is hard going! Balloons is not a get rich quick industry, but if you are creative and want to
earn a living doing what you love the most every single day it is absolutely the best profession in the world! Over the last 7 years I have watched so many companies come and go both in my local area and the online balloon world – it’s a crying shame!
I am now on a mission to help as many budding Balloon entrepreneurs as I can build their business, build their passion and build their skill set – ensuring they will be around for many years to come.
So pull up a chair and browse through all the information and resources I post here on the blog. If you are also a huge sponge and want as much information as possible make sure you sign up to our free newsletter – offering you loads of free tips and tools to grow your business.
Until Next Time. Stay Awesome
