|I (Amy Lynch, alongside my two kiddos under age three) tried to launch a Babies, Business and Breakfast Mini Mastermind this March to May 2019 but it didn’t fly.
I could bury my head in the sand, pretend it didn’t happen, delete the landing page, stare at you blankly when you ask how it’s going or just simply go and make myself a cup of tea, slice of cake and not send this email/post this post.
Instead, I’m going to make myself a cup of tea, slice of cake and send an email/post this post.
Why flaunt my failures?
Because I earned it, fair and square. I spent the past nine months talking to strangers, asking awkward questions, pitching while breastfeeding, cradling, rocking and/or bouncing my baby.
I used my toddler-free mornings while he was at part-time daycare to participate in the Impact Academy CityMaker program, conduct a bit of #BYOBaby activism in business settings, meet people to discuss the problem (lack of professional development options for primary caregivers) and my vision for potential solutions (more options, inclusion and accessible programming!).
I know I’m on to something and in creating a solution that didn’t work (the first launch time around) I have still started a small community of like-minded parents (mostly women tbh) who all feel similar pain points to you. And I.
They also believe parenthood and professional development shouldn’t be mutually exclusive.
And I’m not about to throw the towel in because I have had 0 actual registrations for a paid program.
Because I had email opens, responses and requests to register or access more information before there was an actual launch or price tag assigned.
So I believe the problem is still there and the solution is good but needs to be tweaked. I also may have missed something.
If you would be so kind as to reply to this post with your honest feedback, it would be greatly appreciated!
It could have been price, or the timeline, the program design or perhaps it just didn’t speak to you. Or maybe this is the first time you heard about it?!
If you send your two cents through I sincerely want to hear it all.
The good, the bad and the ugly!
Especially the ugly, I am really trying to soak in this failed attempt and learn from it. #failforward 🙌
I hope to hear from you soon!
