Kunbi Korostensky, CEO and Founder of Awaken Women International (AWI, based in Switzerland), contacted us back in October 2006 requesting information about our virtual assistant and web services:
I am interested in finding a virtual assistant to help with organising my annual conference, writing and distributing press releases, brainstorming ideas, website updating/enhancing, SEO, articles and newsletter editorial and various other details.
We’ve been working with Kunbi ever since [and the work is always interesting and often challenging. Ed-in-Chief]. My most recent work for Kunbi was writing a press release, which can be found at Pressbox.co.uk, for the 2008 Awaken Women Conference.
We’ve all heard the saying ‘the head rules the heart’ and vice versa, along with the sage advice to ‘follow your heart’ — another way of saying follow your intuition. How many of us get strong feelings to follow a certain path or course of action only to have our ‘head’ — our logical self — talk us out of it? Often, not following your heart can lead to anxiety and stress along with feelings of regret and a myriad of what ifs. Some fortunate people manage to follow their intuition — listening to their ‘inner voices’ — to help make the right decisions in their personal and business lives. One such woman is Olakunbi Korostensky, CEO and founder of Awaken Women International.
If you’re interested in learning how tuning-in to your women’s intuition can make for an easier and healthier life — and fancy spending the weekend of October 17-19, 2008 in Switzerland — then get yourself over to the Awaken Women Conference website to learn more.
It could be said that Kunbi followed her intuition and found Freelancealot.co.uk, then made the conscious decision to entrust us with a project that is close to her heart.
To date, I have designed three websites for Kunbi: the first one for her membership and networking site, Women’s Unique Approach Programme and Inner Circle (2006), which I’m about to update; one for her Day Spa and Wellness Retreat Centre (2007); and the third one is the Awaken Women Conference (2008) site — which had an existing website with information for the previous conference, but was built using outdated code and therefore needed to be rebuilt using valid XHTML and CSS whilst keeping the existing layout and colour scheme. I was supplied with the original low-resolution Awaken Women logo, which I have managed to adapt for the mastheads on the two most recent sites, and all the text. Both the spa and conference sites have an English and German version.
