Starting a Business in Sydney: Learn from Top Sydney Entrepreneurs
April 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
Rick Chisholm – the elite serial Entrepreneur has generated direct sales revenues in excess of 300 million in his own companies across 12 industries, Author of “Business Success for Life”, “The Successful Start-Up”, “Success in Leadership and Influence”, “Developing your Business Acumen”, and many other publications, founder of Innovest SME, thought leader in LEAN start-up, bootstrapping and alternative business models.
According to the Daily Telegraph in 2017, 60% of all young people want to run their own business, be their own boss; However 90% of new businesses that commence fail! The failure rates are staggering.
Irrespective of your age, I know why most entrepreneurs go broke and don’t get their businesses off the ground. There’s simple rules to understand and in the beginning I didn’t get it either, I’ve been broke too.
I know what it takes to start a successful ‘scalable’ business. I’m also on a mission to help people of all ages get into business successfully. I have some ‘amazing’ case studies that I have started recently to prove the point as to how easy starting your own business can be if you get it right from the beginning.
A few points
• Its usually not only about the ‘product’.
• it’s not about pitching to every VC or angel you can get in front of.
• It’s not about the letters after your name. Usually, you DON’T need degrees and certificates to be successful in business.
Every business has to satisfy 3 things from the get-go:
1. What problem are you solving?
2. Will people pay for the solution?
3. Can ‘you’ fix the problem?
“Be sure to analyse these before you arrive”
You’ll be given FREE access to on-line courses and E version copies of several books that will set you on the right path.
Every Entrepreneur has to know at least ‘enough’ about business in 12 different areas, at least to oversee, delegate or partner with the right stakeholders. In this session we touch on all 12.
At this event we also have a special guest speaker: Monica Rosenfeld – Public Relations Specialist building credibility for brands and developing personal brands through consistent mass media exposure.
Monica is the Founder of WordStorm PR, a Public Relations Agency she started in 2000 after working at Channel Nine’s ‘A Current Affair’ as a producer and learning how NOT to do PR. She recognised the opportunity to create a PR agency that understands media, what journalists days are like and how to communicate with them in order to get cut through.
Monica’s presentation will teach you:
- Seven angles that will make your story/expertise newsworthy to the media
- How to write a press release that grabs a journalists attention
- How to develop positive relationships with journalists
- How to maximise your mass media coverage
We are holding this seminar to teach you the key principles in all the areas that ultimately you will need to master in order to succeed in your business journey. This is a no BS session, our priority is to provide awesome value and strategies that you can implement straight away.
At the end we’ll do a Q & A and some business networking!
