4 Main Reasons New Businesses Fail.
So what are the most common reasons that new businesses don’t succeed? I was recently reading an article on this. It was the same reason that I’ve seen many other articles use – cash.  The article stated the main reason that businesses fail is they run out of money. However, that’s not a reason.  That’s actually a symptom. And through my 25+ years of experience, seeing many businesses rise and fall, I believe the real

What is it like being an entrepreneur
So, how hard is it to be an entrepreneur? I was actually asked this not as a direct question. It was more like, “how hard is it to do this?” And the truth is… it’s harder than a lot of people think.  I think a lot of that’s to do with the way the media kind of portrays it.

How your message can increase sales
So, I’m going to create the worst business analogy, in the history of business analogies.   We’re looking after some friend’s sheep and I have my daughter here with me.   She has a bottle that she uses to feed the one younger sheep, while the others are disinterested.   Now here’s the thing, the rest of them are not going to come over because they have different interests. Many of the older sheep are

Just get on and launch it
So, in the last week, I’ve had two phone calls. One with a young entrepreneur and one with a nice woman in her mid-thirties.   Neither one had ever run a business before, but they both had brilliant ideas.   I decided to write a blog on this because of the frustration I had during these conversations.   I’m doing this to encourage everybody out there.   They both have great ideas.   They both

Why I started a marketing agency on a bet
A few years back I was on a podcast talking about business, and this particular podcast had live callers without screening, which personally I love!   A caller came on who said, “well it’s easy for you to talk about starting a business when you have money.”   My response was if you genuinely wanted to start a business you could do without a penny.   So I made a bet that I could start
