What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

How to Register A Business

When setting up and running a business, there are many aspects to consider in getting a product/service to market profitably.

Technical skills enable the development of the product/service. These are supported by skills such as marketing and sales, branding, processes, understanding your customer etc., that are essential in attracting and maintaining the right customer.

For business people to grow their companies, they always think of increasing staff to help grow the business. Since that isn’t always easy, there is a big need to find alternatives for their businesses growth. Experts suggest a number of recommendations that do not need necessarily to hire new staff and consequently spend more money for that growth. Entrepreneurs can still build the capacity of their businesses without incurring more expenses for the growth.

Recommendations to build capacity of your business

  1. Understand where you are - in order to build a suitable training plan for your business. What stage is your company in the Business Maturity Model? How will training benefit your company?
  2. Adopt a growth mindset - and share it with your staff. Is your business capable of growth and improvement?
  3. Invest in training for your human resources - especially for the key people who make the most difference;
  4. Make knowledge development and sharing an ongoing practice - how well does your team understand how your business works? Are they up to date on innovations in their areas of work?
  5. Flesh out and document key processes - clear, documented processes ensure that quality products/services are produced every time. Are these present in your company? Are they being used and and continuously improved?
  6. Set clear goals and track metrics for the use of technology - how does technology make your business more efficient? Are measuring crucial steps that affect the quality of your products/services?
  7. Connect with other organisations - to learn as an organisation. Is your company subscribed to the leading Associations in your sector? Are you and your employees members of professional Associations in their fields of expertise?

"The key to success is your commitment, both to your business and to your mentoring relationship" - Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET)

Mentorship is very important for your professional growth - especially when running your own business. A more experienced person (mentor) with strong networks understands your struggles and is able to provide guidance as you (mentee) grow your business.

This is an invaluable support and learning tool but for the mentor/mentee relationship to work, both parties have to receive positive benefits from it.

In Uganda, organisations that support women in business usually provide mentoring services.

4 steps to creating a structured company mentoring programme

  • Define programme objectives (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timed - SMART)
  • Create structure to deliver
  • Train participants on mentorship and launch
  • Continuously assess and improve

Tips for a successful mentorship

  1. Timing
    Mentors: Find a mentee - it's never too late
    Mentees: express your need clearly
  2. Clarify expectations
    Mentors: Why?
    Mentees: What do you want out of this?
  3. Manage logistics
    Mentors: How and where and regularity of meetings
    Mentees: Be proactive with scheduling
  4. Respect their energy
    Mentors: Invest in your mentee's success
    Mentees: Your mentor's time is valuable - treat it that way
  5. Embrace feedback
    Mentors: Give open, honest input - even when it's hard
    Mentees: View feedback as a gift
  6. Personalise mentorship
    Mentors: invest yourselves in the success of your mentee
    Mentees: Build trust with your mentor

  • Access and ownership rights over property and technology; and
