you can do anything…

A client called me the other day…
“Chris we are thinking of opening a second practice and have looked at two locations for a private squat….

  1. market town, nice location, affluent suburban demographic
  2. city centre, nice location, affluent office and retail demographic and city-shoppers

….which of these do you think would be best?”
Impossible to answer of course.
The choice is theirs.
What I can say is that any business success is dependent on 4 factors:
❑                the recruitment of the right people
❑                the investment of the right amount of money
❑                the allocation of the right period of time
❑                the application of the right methodologies
Its easy!
Actually – no it isn’t – it’s bloody hard work.
But it IS simple.
Everything you need to know is in Waterstones or on Amazon – you can read, Kindle, iPad, YouTube it all.
The challenge is to:

  • focus
  • simplify
  • prioritise
  • plan
  • execute

…..and apply zero tolerance to anything that gets in your way.
Market town or City Centre.
Everything is possible.
