I first started my own office furniture business in 1996 at the age of 26. At the time, I had a little more than $700 to my name and no formal business training. But somehow I managed to grow that little business from nothing into a profitable enterprise and then within a few short years sold it for a six figure sum.
From that early start I created other small businesses including one of Australia’s largest retailers of commercial ergonomic equipment and the largest in Western Australia. At it’s peak the business was turning over just under $3,000,000 and netting me nearly $700,000 per annum.
At the very same time I was turning over $3,000,000, another competitor told me he had gotten out of the industry because there was no money in it! Clearly there was a huge difference in the way both of us were thinking and acting in exactly the same business arena.
How was it possible that I was making money while my competitor was getting out? We were both in the same industry after all. So what gives?
I think the main difference between my competitor and I was that I understood how and where to find new clients and how to target quality accounts. However, I also leveraged digital marketing, email marketing and relationship building extensively. I therefore believe my experience in creating and growing small businesses using integrated marketing methodology makes me a valuable asset to you as a small to medium business owner. I’ll help you master what it takes to succeed in business without all the “entrepreneurial” bullsh*t we hear these days!
Don’t make the mistake of talking to one of the many internet charlatans out there who claim to be entrepreneurs! I work closely with my clients, I value their custom and I genuinely want to see them to succeed.
If you need assistance in growing your business then talk to someone who’s been there & done that and has a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities all small business owners face.
