Stretch Your Start-Up Budget

Focus On Getting Clients Before Investing in a Website

While a website is eventually necessary for bigger growth, when you’re first starting out as a healthcare entrepreneur, you can skip this expense, or start with a free do-it-yourself site. Focus your limited resources on getting your first few clients, then use your increased cash flow for a sophisticated website.

Use networking, community service and word-of-mouth to meet potential new clients. Visit every networking group in your area to get a feel for one or two that best suit your purposes. Invite people to a free or low-fee consult or intro session. Offer services or information at community events. Prospects appreciate the high value they get from this format. You don’t need a website for this client-attraction strategy.

Skip Expensive Office Space

Clients generally do not choose to work with you because they like the look of your office. In fact, most people decide to try your work after meeting you in person, before they ever lay eyes on your place of business. The impression you make when they first meet you motivates them to schedule their first appointment. And the result they get from that first session determines whether they …

Creating a Profitable Business Idea

Brainstorm on your strengths.

Brainstorm on your strengths; the reasons you want to start up a business in the first place. The key to a successful business lies in its originality and personal touch. Therefore, it’s important you identify your inherent calling. Now, your list might include “I love meeting people, I love playing with numbers, I am a computer geek, I am passionate about great food, I love kids, I am connected to a social cause, I am good with marketing concepts, or I thrive under pressure and perform best when tested”. Whatever your strengths might be, simply document everything that flows through your mind.

Take notes.

Next, write down the things you think you need help with. For instance; you are great at your job but don’t have the PR skills to market yourself well. You could therefore do well with a PR who’d make you visible and noticed. Understand that there might be people who think like you and therefore are in the lookout for a good PR to market their skills. On the other hand, there could be several other people who are probably just the opposite of you; so they might be great with their …

Integrated Enterprise

Inconsistent data

One of the problems addressed by data integration is inconsistency between data on the plant floor and the business data further upstairs. Depending on the type of business, different departments typically have different goals and criteria for success. The plant floor supervisor wants to know where his products are; the executive upstairs wants to know how much his products are worth. Here is a case where we have different people querying for different bits of information about the same asset. Over time, the different goals and process definitions have led to departments using the same terms to describe different things, and different terms to describe the same things. This barrier to departmental collaboration in the manufacturing industry, for example, has led to the development of standards like ISA 95 to help facilitate the integration of manufacturing systems with business systems.

Redundant data

Another common condition is the tendency for different departments or divisions to have different ways of recording information about the same things. It is not at all unusual for large organizations to have multiple records of the same asset. For instance, if we imagine a particular production unit from the perspective of the plant floor operator, …

Disruptive Innovation Ahead

If you’ve been in business for a while, the chances are pretty good that your business category has been disrupted by innovation. But, if your business hasn’t been affected yet, then staying under the “disruption radar” shouldn’t be your long-term strategy. At the rate at which changes are happening, it’s probably just a matter of time before some innovation puts your business in danger. Somewhere out there are some awfully smart people plotting and programming a way to make your business irrelevant.

The question is, “What are you going to do?” Waiting until the innovation disrupts your business may be a dangerous game to play. A lot of mini-computer companies that ignored the desktop computer industry aren’t around anymore. The problem is that businesses often never see the disruption coming. Sometimes it’s not apparent until it’s too late. Most people never saw Airbnb and Uber coming.

So, how do you compete against the disruptive innovators? Well, you don’t, at least not on their terms. You’re going to have to adjust. They just put your semi-level playing field on the side of Mount Everest. Your business has to change, and you’re going to have to be the one changing it.

Build Your Success Network

For most of us writers (and introverted) types, the very utterance of the word makes us cringe. Yeah, it’s that bad.

We’d like to think that we work in a comfy, safe world of solitude but the pure natural fact is…

… We don’t! And shouldn’t if you want to amp your game a notch or two.

Truth is, I am seriously an introvert and somewhat shy. My nature is to resist the whole notion of networking.

Here’s the crazy thing… I’ve been networking all along and didn’t even realize it.

My small network consisted of printers, competitors, colleagues, teachers, friends, heck I even had a few trusted family members in my network.

Each in their own way helped me out of the doldrums and into success early on.

Hey, if the pros in your field network, then maybe you should consider it as well. So, get over your bad-self and get your network groove on. You need this and it’s not that bad once you get started.

If nothing else go out and get your bad self a “starter” network. This can consist of folks you’re likely never to meet like biz people you admire, authors, bloggers.

Foster Innovation

  • If you are company with enough resources, or an executive at a big company why not start a small investment arm that scours the country for startups operating in your industry… invest in them, help them grow and buy the ones that fit your strategy.
  • Develop pilot projects that try new ideas. Reward employees who bring new ideas, give them the opportunity to try it out on a managed scale.
  • Read about your industry. Read about related industries. Read about innovation around the world. See what is happening in other jurisdictions and discuss whether they could be applicable in your world.
  • Follow known sources of innovation. The Ideas Database from Springwise and Trendhunter are just two such sources. Work with universities, and understand their research and their entrepreneur clubs.
  • Talk to young people about what they are seeing. They tend to see new trends and know how they are used. Social media innovations, gaming innovations and other technological advances will have big impacts on business and it is the newer generations that grasped them first.

You don’t need to make a huge investment in dollars, but it is an investment in time and it also needs to be an investment …

About Innovation Audits

The preceding paragraph succinctly encapsulates the rationale for innovation audits. They are designed to assist companies in understanding their current innovation practices, and how these might be improved upon or added to. Indeed, the audit may illuminate some practices which are actually hindering innovation, and these need to be reduced or stopped. Why? All companies interested in growth will be looking at how they can be innovative and it is increasingly, and widely, recognised that innovation capability is one of the key determinants of long-run profitability and survival. Companies will, therefore, all be wishing to improve their processes to maximise their innovation capabilities and maximise opportunities for growth.

All organisational systems should support innovation. Corporate executives need a means of auditing their firm’s innovation capability so that they can get a sense for the overall performance of their innovation process and where it may be deficient. The innovation audit is a proven method to improve innovation. It examines key indicators, determines strengths and weaknesses and identifies ways of improving innovation throughout the organisation.

The subsequent report tells you what is working well in terms of culture, processes, communication and actions. It also analyses what is inhibiting innovation.

The outcome of …
