Business Start-Up Help & Business Support Networks
This page is all about giving you some tips on finding resources to help your business.
As Business owners ourselves, there is nothing like having some help along the way, some Tips and assistance, and using the networks and experiences of other trusted people to help you with your enterprise.
Tip - If Uncle Louis has never run a business, then as much as you like him - don’t take his business advice, We see many mew business owners coming looking for solutions, We recommend what we do based on experience - this also includes what we refer to as “Learnings and Experiences” of others – Some of the best operators still have Mentors or Coaches, the next step up for bigger businesses is to have “a Board” - basically a group of experienced advisors. Who are you going to get advice from?
One key thing is to… Understanding the Key Drivers of your Business, knowing what things you need to be concentrating on. Another key thing is to… Concentrate on Building your own skills and knowledge, for YOU are the one that will drive your business forward.
So the message is – Don’t go it alone, get some help for YOU and your business.
