Episode #4- “Business Negotiations”

Business Negotiations

Negotiations in business can be like a game of chess.  For those who have never played, chess is a game of strategy and positioning your pieces on the board.

When I was a new business owner I had a terrible habit of waiting to negotiate price until after the job was already done.

Part of this was because I had a fear of losing business.

The other part of this came about because I had no idea how to price my services.

As I stated in an earlier episode I just started my first business on a whim, without any prior research or due diligence.

I thought just knowing how to do the job was all I needed to run a successful business.

In this episode I discuss strategies for negotiating and things to keep in mind when meeting with clients.

Viewer Response

This was originally meant to be a part of Episode 3, but I had so much important information I wanted to share with my viewers so I had to turn this into its own separate video.

After Episode 2 I got letters from two viewers about businesses they wanted to start.

The first letter I got was from Osagie who was interested in starting an electronics rental company in Nigeria.

The second letter I received was from Kola who was looking for advice on starting a business that wouldn’t take too much time away from studying while he was in college.  He had some research on online retail and had some doubts about going that route.

In this video I respond to their questions and give them pointers on getting their businesses off the ground successfully.

Episode #3- “Productive Networking”

Productive Networking!

One of the key pillars  to conducting business as well as growing it to the next level is networking.

Now over the years the word networking has been used way to loosely.

That’s why today’s episode is Productive Networking and not simply networking.

So many people think networking is going down to the local bar for happy hour and passing out a few cards.

I think too many people try to justify socializing by calling it ‘networking’.

In this episode I talk about my proven strategies for productive networking, as well as following up with your new contacts.

Episode #2- “Financing Your Business”

Funding Your New Business!

Another major pitfall hopeful entrepreneurs face is the daunting task of financing their business.

Traditionally startup businesses can be capital-intensive, and require an excessive amount of startup cash.

Even when the economic market was at its peak most financial institutions weren’t handing out business loans to everybody that walked into the bank asking for one.  Lenders would actually rather give you a home or auto loan they know you couldn’t afford before they gave you a business loan on a business that might actually work.

Getting Started!

The Secret To Getting Ahead Is Getting Started!

Often the hardest part of starting a business is getting started.

As a new hopeful entrepreneur deciding which path to take can be frustrating.

about the importance of taking action as soon as a great business idea
or project comes your way and that the secret to getting ahead is
getting started.
