Comp is an abbreviation for comparable. In real estate, if you price your house too high, no bites. If you price it too low, you leave money on the table. Just like in real estate, if you're selling an item, you need to know what the competition is selling…Continue

Don't you just love all the adjectives estate agents and designers use to describe small gardens? Petite. Minikin. Bantam. And then we upgrade from foreign words to compound adjectives like space-savvy or better – clichés like less is more. But let's face it – less is less and for whatever reason you have a small garden space, you just have to embrace it. As seasoned London landscaping experts say, learn to love it. Because…Continue

One of the challenges startups often face is finding time to establish a robust online presence that fully represents their business, value proposition and scope of services. Understandably, preliminary efforts are concentrated more on the service offerings themselves but even if a company offers products and services that are in high demand, if nobody can find the company, it won't be able to make a sale.
I recently connected with the owner of …Continue

I love Quora. It's a really cool knowledge-sharing site. You register and build up your profile with topics of interest. Then you can apply your own experience and answer users' questions about said topics. As you build up your credibility on the site, people then come to you to answer their questions.
I've gotten some cool questions but just answered this one today and thought I'd share. =)

A multitude of potential pitfalls can negatively impact entrepreneurs as they eagerly try to build their fledgling companies…and basically crush their spirit if allowed. In my experiences, there are four reasons that stand out the most:

Bill Rancic has certainly come a long way from his win on The Apprentice. He was just featured on The Rhode Show to talk about a new campaign he is running with Intuit Quick Books to celebrate the success of small businesses in America, which have accounted for two-third of new jobs created in the United States in the past decade. They’d run a similar campaign a few years back and it was so wildly successful, they’re going to…Continue

Okay, it may not always work as planned, depending on your audience. But I can tell you it will make your headline click-worthy. It doesn't have to be graphic either, by the way. Just suggestive. =)
PR is EXPENSIVE so anything you can do on your own to generate buzz will reduce your burn rate. You can pitch editors yourself but if you don't have a hook, they don't have a story. The surest way to get a response is to give them the whole setup. If you can't hook an editor, you won't…Continue

You're a startup entrepreneur. By nature, that makes you an idea generator. It also probably means you're operating on a shoestring budget.
So you have to wear multiple hats - innovator, marketer, developer, designer - and figure out how to get your offerings to market in an expedient and cost-efficient way. Not an easy task...but you've got the tools in your arsenal. =)
For those of you without huge marketing and advertising budgets, it's frustrating to get your voice heard. I…Continue

Aspiring entrepreneurs can learn so much from crowdfunding success stories. Taking advantage of websites like Kickstarter puts your brilliance on virtual display for a whole host of future customers. But if you want to command major bucks for your company, carefully consider the forthcoming pieces of advice. Incorporating them into your pitch will make your idea that much more investment-worthy and ultimately help you meet your fundraising…Continue

Boiling the ocean.
So cliché. We hear those words all the time in corporate America. It basically means you are trying to do way too much within a given endeavor/timeframe. Usually, those projects end up failing because you didn't focus your efforts on the goal at hand and you let things get way out of control to the detriment of your resources.
But those words also have a lot of relevance for startup entrepreneurs, whose budgets are considerably smaller and time to market may…Continue
