    Let's Talk About Doing Your Business Smarter

    in Business

    Colm Kelly ... Founder of Do Business Smarter, a business coaching, consulting and strategy training center just for small business owners, joins me today to have a discussion on 12 core business ownership skills and marketing strategies you need to survive and thrive in 2015 and beyond. Colm has been helping small business owners work smarter for over 20 years, and today I want to pick his brain on  why so many business owners seem to struggle for ever while others to make it to the top.

    Colm has met, spoken to and worked with thousands of small business owners during his 20 plus years as a business owner and business adviser. Many of those business owners achieved reasonable success, some completely failed, but a few of them achieved HUGE success. Not because their product or service was any better, but because the owners were serious and committed to constant improvement. Because of their commitment and drive, they achieved the ultimate business owners dream; a business that makes them huge profits without them having to be there all the time. Most business owners today are experts in their field - they have experience, skill and a drive to succeed, yet still 96% of them fail in the first 7 years. The folks that fail didn't do so because they didn't know their product or service, they failed because they didn't have a solid business structure and system to follow. 

    If you are a small business owner that is serious about growth and wanting to work smarter not harder ... this podcast is for you!
