We have a truly inspiring guest on the show this week. Angela Henderson started her first business from scratch whilst working full-time and raising children. She is an author, entrepreneur and business consultant, while her previous career as a mental health clinician has enabled her to be insightful about the human meaning of the business journey.
See some of Angela’s top tips below:
** Strive not be the smartest person in the room. You can learn so much from others.
** Websites don’t need to be pretty, they need to WORK. An e-commerce specialist is more valuable than a designer.
** Selling is just like picking someone up in a bar. You don’t immediately jump in bed with them! You have to nurture that relationship.
** When it comes to content, think quality not quantity. Two good articles per month is better than four rushed articles.
** If you can’t take care of yourself then you can’t take care of your business, your kids etc. Look after number one!
** It’s okay to fail, but fail fast. Don’t waste too much time on products that don’t work.
In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:
** The power of networking
** How to refine your sales process
** The importance of blogging
