Business can be fun, and it can also be tough so, it’s good to know where help will be when you need it the most. Having the right people and expertise around you is vital to your success. So who’s in your Business Buddy Tree?
Download our free Business Buddy Tree to help you identify who is in your ‘circle of trust’. It is YOUR plan so, include multiple names if you wish. Remember it is OK to review and change some names as your company grows – to quote a book title by Marshall Goldsmith; “what got you here, won’t get you there.“
Doing this now will save you time and energy later because you will know who to call as soon as problems arise.
Yvonne Gorman explains how instrumental her business buddies were in setting up Essential Print Services, “growing up, running my own business never crossed my mind. None of my family or friends ran businesses of their own. Becoming a business owner was never an aspiration of mine. What changed? During my career, working for other people, I lost count the number of times people told me I would be great at running my own business, and at the time, I would discard their comments as being ridiculous. So, when I spotted the opportunity to take that huge leap of faith and go it alone, I knew that I had the support of my peer group who persuaded me, eventually, that I was entrepreneur material.”
