This monthly series of long read blogs allow me to go, controversially, in-depth on one of the themes in my ‘Micro is Magic Show’. The show summarises, in one hour, all I’ve learned from research, founding national organisations to support #startups and starting and running my own businesses, with partners, for 34 years. The richest source of my learning is from interviews with over 2200 business owners, many are now friends and some are famous.
Each of us is unique and each of our businesses is unique but there are some common bad habits and some common good habits of business owners which can mean the difference between a happy, fulfilled business life or one that can be debt-laden and unfulfilled. I can guarantee I’m the only speaker and writer willing to say which snakes may be best avoided and which ladders should be found and scaled for own business success.
As George Orwell wrote: “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. Welcome to my enterprise revolution.
