Beach Walk and Talk
celebrates three years!
Would you be surprised if told
The Walk & Talk is 3 years old?
So I chose to write a speech
‘bout our fab group on the beach.
It started when I moved to the sea
From London via the UAE.
I set up a business on my own
With just a laptop and a phone.
The stresses and strains soon became a prob
But was determined to not get A Job.
I needed help & more support
But not just the ‘business’ kind of sort.
I had a feeling, had a hunch
That out there was a supportive bunch
To help me and others through
When we are feeling really blue.
A range of folk would appear
And it soon became really clear
That we all chose to be by the sea
In order to live a life more free.
From those who are starting new
Who left safe jobs without a clue,
Or came to the coast to leave their ex
Without knowing what they would do next.
From those wanting a new direction
But have a deep fear of rejection.
To get their ideas explored
With a trusted sounding board.
From those who want to grow
But don’t know which way to go
They enquire with a plea:
“What should my next step be?”
‘Cos business is not solely about
Getting your product or service out,
Or trying to get folk to buy
To make the profit reach the sky.
But overcoming the challenges we face
That lurk in a dark, internal place.
The demons of failure and self-doubt
That make us holler, scream and shout.
A friendly face can get you past,
An issue that seems just too vast.
You’ll meet a load of fantastic folk
Learn their journeys and share a joke.
We start 9.30 at Urban Reef
(there follows a very short brief).
Oh, Kids and dogs are welcome to join.
And it doesn’t cost a single coin.
So come along and give it a go,
You’ve nothing to lose but a chance to grow.
3 years have gone by but we want to go more.
So come on guys, let’s make it to four!
