What recommendations would you make to an aspiring entrepreneur who wants to get started in a business of their own?
In my opinion, there is a science to achievement. If you really want to achieve something, you must set goals. Aspiring entrepreneurs need to think about their goals and work toward them every day. They should set deadlines for reaching certain milestones and seek out people who are experts in their field, and follow their advice. If you do that with enough dedication and passion, and if you keep looking at your results and adjusting them so that you are always on track you will be on the road to success. It’s so important to be clear on your goals and the steps required to achieve them, if you’re not clear on the steps, then you are running blind and you will find it difficult to move forward.When you are in the business, it is important to maintain it. These are three simple techniques to increase sales in any business:
- Try to sell more to current customers rather than search endlessly for new ones.
- Offer some premium product or service, high in price and value. Often five or ten per cent of your customers will buy it.
- Stay in contact with customers via phone calls, mail or emails. People like to buy from people they have a relationship with.
