What is the Importance of Market Research to an Entrepreneur with Kori Tomelden

Dec 30, 2021

The number one reason why businesses fail is because of the lack of need and demand of the product or service. Around 40% to 50% of businesses fail because of this particular reason. If there is no need for what you’re offering, then you are not going to sell it. This problem can be solved by doing market research.

 

Market research is not a one-time thing only. This is why we try to incorporate this in our teachings inside the Impact Formula and encourage people to do this at least once every six month.  If you are about to launch a new product or a course and don’t do the market research first, then it is like spending your time trying to execute on an idea that has nothing to grab its teeth onto and wasting your creative energy.

 

Key Takeaways from Importance of Market Research to an Entrepreneur:

[02:54] How the angle at which you do market research is going to determine your results

How to Develop The Discipline of Writing a Book and The Creative Process with Elke Feuer

Dec 16, 2021

Authors and creative people in general run into so many of the same struggles and challenges where they have mindset issues, blocks, or the face undying question of “is this good enough?” with their art. 

 

The creative process is such a messy process and is not always linear. A lot of writers get stuck in the process of thinking that everything must go according to plan and that everything must be perfect or that they have to be fully ready before they start writing. The truth is, you don’t. You just have to start doing it anyway because this process is such a huge learning curve of everything -- from writing, editing, or publishing, and so the sooner you start, the better.

 

This week for my virtual coffee chat, I did a deep dive about writing and the creative process with fiction book coach and CEO of Caywriters, Elke Feuer.

Dec 09, 2021

Do you think that there’s such a thing as failure in business? Not for my dear friend and previous client, Penny Jones of PK Business Consulting, and I totally agree. I’ve had such a lovely coffee chat with her about failure in entrepreneurship and how you can get back up if you ever find yourself failing. 

 

How to Avoid Failure in Entrepreneurial Business

 

There are no failures in business. All these mess ups are supposed to happen and are moving  you towards the direction that you are either divinely guided to do or to a higher version of yourself. It is here as a gift to you if you are willing to receive that gift.

 

Entrepreneurs practice and strengthen their resilience muscle whenever they are faced with failure in business. Just like any muscle in our body, this will need to be exercised and developed for it to eventually get stronger. 

 

Reconditioning your mind in the journey of entrepreneurial failure is also essential in...

Creating Measurable Financial Goals For You and Your Business with Heather Doran

Dec 02, 2021

Can’t believe it’s already December! Some of you must be setting your 2022 goals already by this time. I have seen a lot of people become overwhelmed and stressed about setting their financial goals, frequently asking themselves, “Am I doing this right?”, “Will this work for me?”, or even, “What if I don’t achieve this?”.

 

I had a very insightful conversation with Heather Doran, a business finance and money mindset coach, about how to set measurable financial goals in your business while removing the negative feelings towards it.

 

Short Term vs Long Term Financial Goals

 

Heather explains whether a person chooses to create either short or long term financial goals is linked to how normally their brains think and the patterns they’ve learned throughout their lives.  Some are comfortable with big dreams and looking at the whole picture while others are more comfortable with very specific and detailed...
