This week we have a frank and inspiring discussion with Michael Laps: co-founder and strategy director at Yoghurt Digital. An expert in user-behaviour research and customer-data analysis, Michael also knows a thing or two about building a business from the bottom up.
See some of Michael’s top tips below:
** Surround yourself with good people. If you want to be an entrepreneur, make sure you’re around them.
** It’s easy to set up an agency - you just need your skills and a laptop!
** Don’t underestimate the power of brand recall. Calling a digital agency ‘Yoghurt’ has certainly worked for Michael.
** Understand the customers of your customers. That will give you an edge as an agency.
** If you don’t love the challenge of business then you quite simply shouldn’t be in business.
** Don’t glorify the concept of entrepreneurship - there is no such thing as an overnight success!
In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:
** How to make your way in the digital marketplace
** What makes the perfect partnership
** How to develop the winning mindset
** The benefits of putting it out there
** How to make bootstrapping work

Remember what Michael said about perfection? “Perfection doesn’t exist in entrepreneurship. Speed of execution and the ability to learn from mistakes is more important.” If you’re thinking about doing something, just do it!
