#38: Marketing Is The Hardest Part

When starting a business the setup and ideas phase are what we normally focus on. And that is what most gurus or courses teach. But the reality is that that is only the beginning. Getting sales and customers is going to be your main job and the hardest job. But also where you have the most freedom for creativity.

#37: If You Can Plan A Wedding You Can Start A Business

I chose to start a business with Emma after I watched her plan our wedding and saw just how useful her skills would be. Setting up a business and planning a wedding are very similar. From finding suppliers, logistics, budgeting and creativity. And I would go as far as to say, if you have organised a wedding, you can start a business.

#31: Should You Start Multiple Businesses Or Focus On Just One?

There is a conflict over how you should be spending your time as an entrepreneur. Some people will say that you should focus on just one business, pour your all in to it and make it the best it can possibly be. But others will tell you that is too risky. Diversify. Build as many income streams as possible. 

Well, it is not quite as simple as saying one option is always better than the other. In this episode, we talk about how to balance your goals, your personality and the opportunities available to help decide if you should be building multiple businesses.
