I get interviewed again
I got interviewed today, and it wasn't about email marketing or blogs, it was just about me!
The NZ Centre for SME Research are interviewing several young entrepreneurs, and I just managed to be young (under 30 - but not for long!).
It's quite an experience when someone asks how you got into business and how you get by from day to day, what your weaknesses are, etc.
Anyway, it's one of those occasions where you think of all the really clever things to say just afterwards. At least I've got an audience here. (Hello?)
In brief (I'm going out soon, just as well):
- When I started in business, one of the things I really wanted to do was one day help others who wanted to start. That kind of attitude helps you learn faster, I believe.
- Don't undercapitalise. We started with nothing, which would've been fine if there was a steady flow of work, but there were peaks and troughs, and we suffered during the troughs.
- Your personality is your most unique asset - for instance, I come across as easy-going and nice to deal with. So use it! Make the most.
See you soon.
