Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Steve Brumer, Business Partner of BH IoT Group, located in Vero Beach, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are a leading IOT GTM, advisory, and strategy consulting firm focused entirely on the Internet of Things segment of the wireless industry, helping F1000, mobile carriers, IoT hardware and software groups, and Solution Providers with their ability to monetize and commercialize their products and services.
Tell us about yourself
As a serial entrepreneur, I have been in tech for over 40 years, wireless since 1987, and M2M/IoT since the early 90s helping groups with their IoT needs. I am constantly motivated by providing true value and knowledge that allows groups in the industry the ability to see thru the haze and build and deliver IoT products, applications, and services that solve problems.
In addition, I give back to the industry thru speaking engagements at universities and STEM events, plus at national events where my message is about bringing more women and people of color into the IoT industry.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Helping our clients make money in the IoT space by taking decades of actual experience and creating programs that work and can be executed.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Wake up every day and approach the day as a commission-only business owner, always prospecting for clients to help.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Same as above—wake up every day and approach the day as a commission-only business owner, always prospecting for clients to help.
- Compromise every day with your employees, customers, and your significant other, who will always live with your business!
- I know it is a cliche, but you must surround yourself with winners who are focused, knowledgeable, and committed to the success of your business. If not, get rid of them FAST.
