Every successful entrepreneur surrounds themselves with credible financial advisors. Sir Richard Branson and Dame Anita Roddick are just two examples. Being at the top of their game we forget that they started out like every other entrepreneur – an idea and sheer determination to make it work. But they didn’t get where they are today without obtaining some form of expert advice.
Asking questions and seeking professional advice is an important part of starting and building a successful business. Whoever said asking questions or asking for finance is a sign of weakness evidently had bags of money and probably wasn’t around long enough to succeed. It’s a sign of having common sense and playing on individual strengths, enabling you to focus on managing and developing your business – and leaving the rest to the experts.
