How To Run A Successful Business (And Feel Like A Success)

Typically, startups focus on their immediate requirements – what to sell, how to sell it, who to sell it to. They also focus on how to not fail. In order to grow and scale, however, you need to turn this around, so you are thinking of how to succeed and how to make the most of that success. And believe it or not, most of that success depends on the nuts and bolts of your business – the operations. Without having solid foundations and infrastructure, failure will always feel like one bad decision away – and guaranteed you will lose sleep over it. So, how do you ‘run’ a successful business? During this session, we will cover:

  • What you need to run a business
  • How you make time to work on your business
  • How you make time for anything else in your life
