Business Brain Food

It’s always nice to get a guest back that everyone loved the first time around, so it’s a great pleasure to introduce Robert Gerrish to the show once again. We first spoke to Robert about his Flying Solo group (and accompanying book); a collective that supports people in business who are starting, growing and exiting. Now he’s written another book called the One-Minute Commute, but most importantly he talks absolute sense about business and life. Listen up!

 

See some of Robert’s top tips below:

 

**  Over 70% of Aussie small businesses don’t even have a premises. There is nothing wrong with this…. embrace it!

**  Don’t just picture your material dreams in life. Picture what you’re doing in life.

**  Be agile in business - sometimes you just need to adjust. This doesn’t mean you’re a failure!

**  Don’t be so hung up on being busy with the day to day. Take the time out to understand what you might need to do to future-proof your business.

**  Understand the value of your business, even if you aren’t planning on selling it. Be prepared for everything!

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

 

**  Busting the myths of a “lifestyle business”

**  How Robert ditched the rat race

**  Robert’s history with business coaching

**  How Robert attracted over 100,000 members to Flying Solo
