Create a Company 3,4,5 and 6: “Create a Company 3,4,5 and 6”
“Create a company: 3 – Work always long term rather than short term
Your business life is like living in a very small city.
Each time you work with somebody, you leave an impression. I started my business in Paris, and I thought it was big. I realized fast that information goes so fast about you and your company providing a good or a bad service. So fast.”
“Create a company: 4 – Respect and talk to your competitors
Talking to your competitors is key. I know a lot of people who keep criticizing them all the time. I have always discussed with them, met them, and on the contrary try to build something with them.”
“Create a company: 5 – Raise funds or not?
This is a question I am currently totally asking myself right now for my future company.
If you start your business and execute it well, one day will come when you will either want to look after funding or better, investors may call you.
Here are the pros and cons as I see them.”
“Create a company: 6 – Networking, networking, networking!
Business is people. Networking is key. To my knowledge there is no successful company without a highly networked person managing it.
You should look at what business associations exist for the business you want to start and join them.
There is none ? Fine. Start one yourself.”
