    "Get Out Of Your Way" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Sandra DeMaria

    "Get Out Of Your Way" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Sandra DeMaria

    Get out of your way. When I get out of my way and, I actually open myself up. I have a business coach we use now. I actually open myself up to allowing someone else to give me some advice and say; hey Sandra this is right. We really need to go down this route, hold back from this, do this. It really opens me up for great things to happen. That's really what has been happening for us now with Tidy Spaces. When I get out of the way, all these things start to happen. It's unbelievable.

    "Do Your Research Up Front" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Ian Abbott

    "Do Your Research Up Front" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Ian Abbott

    Do all of your research up front. You can't do all of your research up front. You are always learning new things every single day. But, do your homework. No idea is had in a vacuum. If you have an idea, make sure you look at the lay of the land. Look at all the competition that exists out there. Make a spreadsheet even. Get out your whiteboard and look at all the ways that your business is different from their businesses. Use that difference at the end to shine or design a marketing strategy around. Double down on those differences.

    "Stand On The Ground" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Ahmed Elnaggar

    "Stand On The Ground" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Ahmed Elnaggar

    Try to control the expenses and don't spend on things that are not beneficial and stand on the ground. Don't look at the unicorns and all this. Now yes this is the target but, stand on the ground. This was a mistake that I did and so much was spent was acting as a startup concept that you read about every day and spend a lot based on that but at the end of the day it comes by steps.

    "Ask For Help" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Nicole DeAngelis

    "Ask For Help" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Nicole DeAngelis

    Ask for help. It's something that took me a while because I have a lot of pride and think I can teach myself anything, which might be true but, it might take years, and that's not very smart. Every time I have asked for help, it's always led towards more progress. And faster than I would be able to do on my own. And most people want to help you succeed.

    "How to Understand Accounting For Your Business" Expert Advice For Entrepreneurs w/ Andrew Klein

    "How to Understand Accounting For Your Business" Expert Advice For Entrepreneurs w/ Andrew Klein

    And so I think on the lower side, on the block and tackle side, make sure you have your information in excel format or Quick Books so that you can manipulate your information and get it clean. Then on the other side, make sure you have someone to talk to. Whether it's someone like us or whether it's an investor or advisor to talk you through things like profitability and questions that you will need to answer to the taxman but also to future investors.

    "Don't Release A Crappy Product" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Tom Milligan

    "Don't Release A Crappy Product" The Inventive Journey Podcast For Entrepreneurs w/ Tom Milligan

    My biggest fear has been producing an inferior product or a product that won't pass muster. What that has done is it has really shown and taught me that first of don't release something unless it's at least minimally viable. Don't release a crappy product. If you do release one, you are going to have to deal with it in the future. That is what I have learned over these last few months.
