Having a business is difficult.

All begin with high hopes but many fail, a few succeed, and most just end up eternally frustrated.

Why do so many businesses fail and in turn few succeed?

The main reason why companies fail is because it is very hard to get new clients.

This is the big, ugly monster all businesses face.

How do we get people into the office, or people to buy an office, or people to purchase from our store versus another?

A good place to start is to ask how not to get clients.

The answer to that question is lay down and not try. If you are listless, you will make certain that your business fails or at least underperforms.

Well, I’ll tell you a secret; Winning starts with beginning.

You win by believing you can win. You don’t have to be one of the businesses that fail.

Your last several posts have been you sharing your YouTube videos, even your responses to other people.

Why don't you create a progress thread?

@BizyDad I don’t know what that is. Can you enlighten me? Thanks. I appreciate it.

Sure. I guess I assumed wrongly that someone who had been on the forum since 2015 would know what it is. I mean, you're not really supposed to get self promotional until you've hung around for a while.

Check out @Kak 's thread


Instead of his creating a new thread everytime he has a show, he keeps it all in his thread. And along the way he'll share different things about running podcasts too, or other ideas to help people who might look to do the same.

Yea, you're going to need to stop using the forum as a marketing channel to plug your YouTube channel. This is not acceptable behavior here, at least until you've accumulated some cred, or are posting in an execution/progress thread.
