Business Guru David Furze joins us today to talk about how to unleash your business vision. David left the corporate world to create Launch Commerical Solutions in 2016. He wanted to help entrepreneurs to fully realize their vision. That process can be more difficult than you realize. You have to put in place the solid foundation that will allow you to hit your goals. David shares the seven things that business owners always forget. And he discusses how to find a real business coach that actually knows what they are doing.
The first problem most business owners happens before they even start the business. It’s a simple question. Why are you starting a business? If are going into this for the wrong reasons you are doomed to failure. Making a million dollars isn’t a good reason. Build a business on your passion. When you have a clear mission that helps your customers understand who you are.
Once you do that you need to clearly articulate what you want to achieve. Understanding who your target market is critical. If you don’t know who they are then you can’t communicate with them. As the business progresses it’s really hard to maintain your motivation. Developing the skills that will help you navigate the bumps in the road is so important. To keep motivated try to remove distractions. If you’re answering your email every three seconds it’s hard to keep on task.
Getting a great business coach can be a huge help. The problem is finding a good one. There are, literally, millions of people on the internet claiming to be business coaches. That’s given coaches a pretty bad reputation. But David says they are important. To find a great coach David recommends a few things. First, if the coach is always starting sentences with “I” instead of “We” that’s a dead giveaway. They need to be focused on you. Coaching will help you to train on business concepts and planning. They will help you to deliver strategy that will in turn help your employees to execute that strategy.

We started Business Legal Lifecycle to create a simple way for you to understand complex legal terms. Most importantly we want to help you to develop a plan to take your business successfully into the future. There’s a startling statistic the underscores the importance of developing a solid plan. The majority of business owners are just seven months away from losing everything. A single aspect of your business that is not set-up correctly can shut down your whole operation very quickly. Legal advice is not cheap and even when you can afford it there is often a divide between lawyers and their clients. We want to close that gap once and for all. We want to put legal knowledge and tools into your hand to prevent the worst from happening to you.
Twice a week we are going to deliver those tools right to your home or office with Business Legal Lifecycle TV. We’ll start the week with Fast Fix Monday, a short 5-10 minute video that will tackle a single issue that businesses have to deal with. Then on Wednesday’s our main show will feature with more fulsome discussions and interviews all delivered in a straightforward and easy to understand format.
