NBP52: The Baseline of a Business to Succeed with Rick Chisholm
In today’s episode we talk about turning your business around and hopefully double your profits within 12 months and shave off time needed to get there. To achieve these outcomes there is a minimum baseline level of knowledge you must learn in business to succeed. The vast majority of entrepreneurs do not have enough information on how to identify what should be done if your business is not succeeding the way you would like it to be.
What is it that you actually want to achieve as an entrepreneur? An example of an area of business that is underrated is the benefits of implementing a “zero tolerance to errors” using particular but simplistic (and costless) communication strategies in your business. Sloppy communication can send businesses broke.
TOPICS DISCUSSED IN THIS PODCAST EPISODE:
- Profits and cash/cash flow
- To be able to do what you want-when you want it and making money without your business depending on you
- The entrepreneurial journey
- How to truly run a business
- The ‘trough’ of sorrow
- The benefits of entrepreneurs maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle.
- Dealing with lawyers, accountants and supposed experts every time you have a problem costs money.
- Learn enough about law and the basics of business so that you don’t throw money down the drain, especially with lawyers.
