Why playing Table Tennis at an elite level is just like being in business

For many years people have said that sport is like business and it is.

You need to:

  1. Improve to get to the next level
  2. Take action
  3. Know what you want
  4. Consistently look for ways of improving what you do
  5. Work as a team
  6. Etc

In this video I share with you the missing ingredient that only 1% of businesses and 1% of Table Tennis players have.

Why most small businesses fail and what to do about it…

There are obviously many reasons why most small businesses fail …

And statistics prove that in the UK 84% of businesses fail within 5 years of starting and of all the businesses who started in 2018 67% of them have already closed their doors.  I personally think that is terrible!

In this video I share my take on why this is the case…

Digital Marketing Masterclass Portsmouth

Digital Marketing Masterclass – How to win business using digital technology

The days of saying “I don’t really get digital marketing” are over. Why? Because digital marketing is only going to increase!

New ideas and technologies are emerging on a daily basis and current technologies changing and improving. So, you really need your business to come out of the dark ages and into the light where you can create leads for no money, or using a limited budget.

So the question is – Are you going to get left behind in the wilderness relying on networking, referrals and making cold calls, or are you going to stop making excuses and start making some money?

This Masterclass is for you…

  • Because some of your marketing doesn’t seem to work anymore
  • Because your web based sales, website signups and lead generation activity is not working
  • Because you don’t like what you see when you look at your sales and marketing results
  • Because you need more traffic, more signups, more leads and… more sales!
  • Because you are really committed to sorting this out
  • Because you are 100% committed to growing your business.

If you have some, or all of the above problems, then this… jam packed ONE DAY DIGITAL MARKETING MASTERCLASS may just be for you…

This came from a conversation I had with a friend a few days ago…

He asked me to explain what I’d do if my business failed and I had to build it back up from scratch.

Without thinking about it for more than a split second, I told him exactly what I’d do.

I’d focus on sales.

There is no other choice in business if you don’t have any sales, or enough sales.

I would be back in business within days and have my first high paying clients within 1-2 weeks.

And… This Wednesday the 17th of April I’m going to be holding a FREE Live webinar where I show you *exactly* how to grow a business from scratch.

You can register here.

If you’re interested in starting your own business, or if you have just done so, then this is definitely for you because I’m going to show you the best way to get growth.

And… If you already have an existing business then this will show you methods for scaling it up and really taking things to that next level.

Here’s what you’ll discover:

1. What are the best possible sales and marketing systems to start and why right now the “market timing” is perfect

2. The importance of picking a niche and how to pick your niche right away

3. The only 3 things you need to master to make high 6-figures, even 7-figures

4. How to get high value clients even if nobody knows who you are

5. How to command high prices from day 1

This webinar is going to be Live and I don’t hold these very often so you definitely don’t want to miss this…

6 steps to get you to 6 figures in 6 months

Why am I blogging about ‘6 steps to get you to 6 figures’ and why have I produced a video focusing on the same thing?

The reason is, getting to 6 figures is one of the biggest challenges most businesses face.  There are over 5.4 million small businesses in the UK and…

  • Small businesses accounted for 99.3% of all private sector businesses at the start of 2018.
  • Total employment in SMEs was 16.3 million.
  • 60% of all private sector employment in the UK is SME.
  • The combined annual turnover of SMEs in 2018 was £2.0 trillion.
  • 52% of all private sector turnover is SME turnover.
  • And… 82% of the SMEs who went into business in 2017 have now gone bust!

The average turnover of a business in the UK is £505,644.33.

However, that is nowhere near the SMEs turnover, of most SMEs, as this is hugely affected by company’s like Vodafone turning over billions.

Many SMEs, or micro businesses, as they are often called,struggle to get over the £30,000 mark and often never get to £100,000.  A terrible statistic is that 82% of businesses that started in 2017 have now gone bust.

Why is that and what can be done about it?

In this video Steve Mills shares his thoughts and ideas about how to use a 6 step process to get to 6 figures in 6 months!
