Gold Nuggets (AKA – Key Learnings) from this episode

  • Look after the PR for your business as no PR agency will be able to tell your story like you can.
  • Have a targeted approach to securing PR opportunities.
  • Build relationships with journalists as you would any other business relationship.
  • PR generates more PR.
  • If you own a B2B business don’t forget SME’s. Their decision makers are easier to get to and make quicker decisions.
  • When going into business with others (especially family and friends) make sure everyone agrees from the outset what the plan is.
  • No matter how little cash you have make sure you have the appropriate agreements in place in case the worst happens.
  • Put yourself in the right place and make yourself visible and the right opportunities will come along.
  • When putting a board together make sure you look for people who have skill sets that are different to yours.
