What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Make sure you love what you are about to do (to get through the lean times).
  2. Enter every meeting with a blank pad and pen asking questions about my prospect/client's business twice as much as I want to talk about what I do or offer in my business.
  3. Love people more than you love your income or fees.

Where can people find you and your business?
