I’m a fan and believer of working on your business, not just in it. This is the difference between being strategic and visionary and just running a small business that pays for your lifestyle. I also believe in learning from others’ mistakes whenever and where ever possible. Here is something I saw online where a team of experts went in and helped a business owner re-structure her business. It was on MSNBC. The video now resides on the Amex open forum website.
If you want to view original broadcasts of this series, American Business Makeover: Makeover on Main, go to MSNBC on Sundays at 7:30am. (Personally, I sleep in on Sundays so I’m glad I can see it on the net or set the DVR to record.)
Whether or not you or someone you know has an ailing business, I think it’s a great show, at least the most recent episode I saw regarding a flower shop. There’s great information on marketing, PR, and knowing when to seek outside help.
