I just wanted to own and operate some kind of business on my own - my quest for lifestyle options!
Years ago I made an active decision to be a successful small business owner.
My desire and drive was not based on reality.
I didn't have a strong interest in a particular product, service, skill or hobby, just a strong desire to be a successful business owner.
So, I invented a small business based on my ability to develop concepts, bring ideas and
plans together and provide a service to those
who needed my help.
Based on my experience as an employee of a small, local retail business and my
active participation in the retail merchant's association, I set up a small service business as an Executive Director with services to non-profit membership associations.
I also drew on my college background as an Assistant Director for a multi-group conference center to demonstrate my organizational abilities.
My first small business operated for three years.
It wasn't highly profitable but it paved the way to corporate employment which ultimately laid the foundation for "The Profit Puzzle" and my being able to other small business owners Solve their Profit Puzzle and optimize their profitability.
Here's what I discovered.
Most small business owners have the drive and motivation for business ownership but limited knowledge of the key areas that are required for successful, profitable business ownership.
Your experience to date may not have brought you face to
face with small business management, well researched business plans or
the capital it takes to start up and sustain a success small business endeavor.
I learned making a profit takes dedication
Without profit you just have a hobby, fewer options and less income to live the life of your small business dreams.
The reality for most of us is that we desire to succeed in a business of our own.
Our willingness to "Learn and Do" or put all the profit pieces together is the key to creating success and profitability.
I created and have successfully used a small business "How To" workbook, "The Profit Puzzle", to help others accomplish their small business dreams and goals.
The eight business basics and their 32 key components, understood and implemented properly will make the difference in the level
of your bottom line profit and success.
believe in your success.
quote given to me years ago by a couple
whose success is proof of its wisdom, is
the advice I would offer:
are never given a wish without also
being given the power to make it true,
it may take some work, however.”
