The secret to my success!

Posted: 10/02/2017

I hear a lot of people with their stories of struggling to make ends meet and the tough, lonely world of setting up and running your own business. Maybe I got lucky, or maybe they just aren’t cut out for this type of endeavour, but for me, it just hasn’t been like that. I’m not saying that life, as a small business owner, has always been plain sailing – it hasn’t – but I have always dug in and found a way through. And even then, I often found that I couldn’t cope on my own!


People don’t know what they don’t know.

Early on in my life as a sole-trader electrician, someone invited me along to a local business networking meeting. I had no idea what I was going to, it was a little bit scary to start with, and the whole concept of talking about business with people who did jobs as diverse as mortgages and osteopathy was completely alien to me. It was a BNI meeting (Business Networking International) and, although some people had warned me away, I joined that first day, and it has changed my entire fortune ever since. 

Not only does a large percentage of my new business come from contacts and referrals from within the group; that same ‘diverse’ group of people have become my support and mentors. I would go as far as to say that it is those good friends and like-minded people who have got me through the hard times and given me a business today that employs 8 people and is fulfilling my business dreams.


Why not see for yourself?
