Generating Repeat Business…

When was the last time you spent any time with your Client List and really thought through the relationship you have with each and every one? Never is not the answer I’m looking for! Now would be a great time to start… “For any enterprise to thrive, you cannot underestimate the importance of repeat business. The vast majority of senior executives believe that providing good customer service is sufficient to obtain return customers.

The Promise of Entrepreneurship… is bigger always better?

We are made to believe that when it comes to business success, bigger is always better. In our super-sized, consumption-oriented culture, not even small business is exempt from the pressure to grow for growth’s sake.

How many cities will you go to?’ instead of asking what their goals are or why they started their business in the first place. When talk about growth we focus on speed, not sustainability. When we talk…

So… why not be opportunistic and bold in 2012, and become a “3%” member? (refer last post) You can always tap into the entrepreneurial mothers group if you need support…

Join my “Mothers Group” – Viv did and look what’s happened…

As Viv has discovered, there’s a lot more to being a successful Mother and building a Mother of a Business than just dreaming about it every day.   It’s about behaving in a manner which builds a genuine business.

They might design themes for a blogging platform. They may produce exquisite wedding invitations, or how-to books. Micropreneurs are agile, inspired, independent, knowledge seekers who can’t live with the 9-to-5 status quo. If this resonates with you, read on. This manifesto attempts to distill the key points you’ll need as you begin your micropreneur journey. I learned every one of them the hard way… Again, whilst I’m not fussed on yet another version of the entrepreneur tag, Rob…

Ken Phillips (Exec. Dir.) and the team at Click here for the full article: Some of Simon’s observations include: “… entrepreneurial economies [are] based on knowledge and ideas rather than economies of scale.” “There are big differences between the former industrial ‘managed’ economies and the new ‘entrepreneurial’ economies.” “One outcome is that, while a managed economy favours large businesses and corporate managements, an entrepreneurial economy offers more advantages for small businesses and more opportunities and rewards for entrepreneurs.” “Although there may be clear signs that the successful economies of the future will be entrepreneurial economies, a lot of our thinking…
