    Do’s and Don'ts of Successful Business with BDC Chief Economist Pierre Cleroux

    in Business

    The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) released a new research report that looks at how Canada’s entrepreneurs can stay at the top of their game by mastering five fundamentals of business success and steering clear of five common pitfalls. 


    The report identifies factors that are key predictors of business success. In fact, they appear to be common to many of Canada’s “most successful” business leaders, defined as the top 20% of businesses based on recent financial performance and employment growth, regardless of the industry in which they operate. The other 80% of Canadian entrepreneurs surveyed were classified as “all others.” 


    “A common thread here is that it’s all about the power of strong relationships,” said Pierre Cléroux, BDC Chief Economist. “Whether it is about the importance of seeking outside advice, hiring and maintaining good employees, or building a solid rapport with your suppliers, never underestimate the value of relationships.”


    Join us as we talk to Pierre Cleroux.  Call us with your questions 1-877-299-9994.

    The Power of a Personal Thank You

    in Business

    Sheri Bruneau is the owner of Get IT Together.  She has the absolute pleasure of helping her clients fall in love with their homes by redesigning and organizing spaces, by assisting clients getting ready to move, as well as helping her clients settle in to their new homes.


    I’ve always wanted to find a way to thank my clients for choosing my company. In considering what I could do for them, I wanted to find something that would make a lasting impression and that would also show that I care. In addition, it needed to be something that would not break the bank or add unnecessary or unwanted clutter to a home.


    The power of a little thank you gift has been of great benefit to my business. Every single time I leave one of these behind, I receive positive comments. These little gifts, along with personal notes to our clients, leave a lasting impression. 


    The power of a thank you will go a long, long way!


    Join us as we talk to Sheri Bruneau, Owner of Get It Together as we discuss what small tokens you can do to move your business forward.
