Today’s guest Dr. Jonathan Brown of CitySkin has been not only listening to this show for the past 3-years, but he’s also been implementing the ideas that caught his attention. The result? He’s built a business he loves, going from 156 clients a year to over 3,000. He’s made marketing a hobby.
Have you ever wanted more time? Have you ever wanted to get more done in your business? Do you ever feel like you just need an extra set of hands but can’t justify the cost? Check out these stories from real small business owners who have joined me for the second ‘Freedom Through Outsourcing Tour’ to the Philippines.
You’ve heard the saying – ‘Build it and they will come’ but we all know that’s rarely the case. However, if you build it and market it then they are much more likely to come. This week we have Marcus Nicholls from Akuna Pet Resorts who is not scared of taking big risks; and he’s able to because he now understands the power of marketing and of being crystal clear on his perfect client. But that wasn’t always the case.
As many of you may know, I’m a big supporter of Australian businesses outsourcing what they can to The Philippines. And of recent times (the last three weeks), I’ve been promoting this particularly heavily.
As a result of sticking my neck out, I’ve received some hate mail. Well, let’s call it pissed-off mail – hate’s a big word as I often tell my kids. Whatever, not everyone’s happy …
Finding the time and money to work on your business is hard – particularly in Australia where the costs of running a business can spiral out of control very quickly.
Wages, rent, staffing issues, paperwork plus plus plus – all stop you from building that beautiful business of yours in to the empire it deserves to be.
Well, it doesn’t have to be like that. In fact, let me (and today’s guest – David Warne of Cornerstone Business Solutions) put an end to the struggle immediately.
Well, I’m back from my Philippines outsourcing tour, and it’s time to share what I learnt.
Joined by five motivated business owners (and fellow SBBMers – you know who you are ;0) it was an absolute eye-opener and mind expander as we visited a variety of outsourcing options and got to understand the various business models available to us.
Yep, it’s another big show. Let’s do it!
