NEW YORK, N.Y., March 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- What specific "tools of the trade" does every entrepreneur need in order to be successful? Jimmy Newson, director and filmmaker, went out and asked his entrepreneurial network, and here are the top five answers.
"Having a great network of supportive people will help you along your entrepreneurial path when you have doubts or setbacks. This support structure give you confidence to keep going when the going gets rough," say Ashleigh Mooney, who appears in the movie, A Billion Entrepreneurs.
"Up-to-date technology is definitely necessary when starting and building your business. A new entrepreneur needs all the leverage that simple technology provides, because you won't have employees to do the work for you at the beginning. A computer with basic Microsoft Suite, a unique and dedicated email address, a tablet, a smart phone, and a professionally-designed website with organic search optimization should all be at the top of your list," states Dr. Ken Adams, founder of several small businesses.
"To start a business you need money – working capital. Whether you dive into your savings, take out a personal loan, or have angel investors or partners, it will be difficult to start something from nothing," says Debbie Reardon, a real estate entrepreneur.
"In addition to the skills and knowledge you already have to start your business, you will need to acquire alternate skills such as public speaking, learning how to hire, sales, manufacturing, marketing, etc. As a business owner, you will wear many hats, and it's all up to you to make it work until you build the business enough to hire people in designated jobs and departments," says Michele Andriola, Office Manager.
"Your brand and reputation are what you are building as well as your annual revenues. Knowledge of marketing and sales will get you to build your targeted sales funnel, and engage your prospective clients, so you can close the deals later. The repetition of this simple, yet complicated act is what builds a business," states Angela Marie Franco, of AMF Direct.
