Five startup lessons

Since everyone feels the need to offer entrepreneurial advice to startups, anywhere from motivational the odd motivational talk to how you should build, it’s hard to know what to take and what not to. The August 2015 issue of Entrepreneur magazine has a piece with some of the most timeless advice that I received from seasoned entrepreneurs. These continue to be relevant and some I wrestle with from time to time.

Entrepreneur on the move: WordStart on KayaFM with Stevie B

Following an interview on Entrepreneur Magazine, I got a surprise call from KayaFm about a chat with Stevie B. When we do the work we love, we rarely document the process and this interview was one of those wake up calls for me. Stevie B asked questions about building a startup based on what we did at WordStart, whether we have a team and how we market. Here are some hacks I suggest you use for your business:

  • Build thought leadership into your marketing model.
  • Search for places online and offline with people who want the content you find useful. This shouldn’t be limited to Twitter and Facebook.
  • Create original content to share exclusively on certain platforms and be consistent enough to cause a dent.
