nothing happens unless you do something

it's high time to have a break from all this misery-recycling news on layoffs in Greek Unis...13 weeks of shutdown...and God knows when/how this will end...

anyway, today, let's talk about "How to start a business on a shoestring".

A lot of my students ask me how to set up their own business and ...start exporting food.

There are no magic tricks.

We need to formulate and brand a product, package and label it we go!

Simple as that!

"Don't be afraid to stand on the shoulders of giants. Platforms like Amazon and eBay have done the hard work to build up an audience for you to sell to, while the book publishing industry has been revolutionised so anyone can write and produce a professional book and get it on Amazon within days and be paid 70% royalties.

One final thought – nothing happens unless you do something. There is never a perfect time to start a business and if you rehearse and rehearse, the curtain will never get up. Good ideas are two-a-penny, but it is the execution and the drive to do something that will make the difference."
