Add your name (in the signup box on the right) to get notified and get access to 10 upcoming video posts, each covering a topic below in detail on how you can maximize your chances of business success.  If you’re in the early stages of your business (years 0 – 3), or if you’ve been in business longer but feel stuck and would like to get some ideas on how to get your business going again and growing, this is the series for you.

I’ll be adding one new video per week, starting week of April 16, 2012, covering the following topics:

  1. It will take twice as long as you think to build revenues. Focus on building visibility and credibility instead of counting customers.
  2. Get over your fear of <insert area you want to avoid in your business>
  3. Learn how to befriend failure, or at least look at her in the face without falling apart
  4. Pace yourself
  5. Don’t do entrepreneurship on your own.
  6. Build a tribe
  7. Don’t worry about your competition too much
  8. Invest in yourself
  9. Take action. Why 80% is better than perfect.
  10. Get to know your customer. As in, really, get to know them.

Each topic will be explored in detail … add your name in the box on the right to be notified when a video becomes available!
