So you want to be an entrepreneur!

By mike | February 16, 2015 | Improve business

Entrepreneurship goes beyond Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, and Steve Jobs, and it embodies something bigger than Twitter and WhatsApp. Entrepreneurship is a mindset, an attitude, and a lifestyle adopted by people who aren’t satisfied with the status quo.

It’s an approach to life that favors creativity over conformity and action over inaction. Bestselling author, investor, and entrepreneur James Altucher says that for him, “Being an ‘entrepreneur’ doesn’t mean starting the next Facebook. Or even starting any business at all. It means finding the challenges you have in your life, and determining creative ways to overcome those challenges.”

So, even if you’re not tinkering away at the next world-changing invention or looking to set up shop in Silicon Valley, there are aspects of the entrepreneurial mindset that will enrich your work and life. Here are 8 things entrepreneurial people do differently

To be an entrepreneur you have to take risks – and not be afraid of failing. It will happen, but you can take calculated risks.

Here are the views of 20 Australian entrepreneurs who have been successful.

Jo Malone – What have fragrances got to do with business…..

By mike | January 16, 2015 | Improve business

Now over the years I have bought my wife many presents, but the one that always achieves the best results is something from Jo Malone. Not many people will know about the life story of Jo Malone, but her story is one every budding and living entrepreneur should listen to. From tough upbringing, to starting a business on the kitchen table (where they really do all start from), to selling out for many millions, this lady strives for success battling dyslexia, cancer and unable to drive.

Listen to the Jo Malone story.

Kabbage…..More useful than the name suggests…

What do you think I get asked about most as a business adviser?

Well, it is ‘where can we go and get working capital finance for our business without having to put our house up as collateral for a $30k funding?’ In the USA this kind of service is established and is helping growing businesses get the short term funding they need – Kabbage

It will only be a matter of time before Kabbage or similar arrives in Australia. Instead of looking at financials that may be 18 months out of date or a credit score, companies like Kabbage actually look at what the business is doing now  -and where it is going. Just like the team at Harding & Co! We will keep you updated on changes in the SME funding market, but if you would like to talk about how Harding & Co can help your business, call Mike on 0401 631 904.
