Running your business to make money

2008-09-29 00:00

A very good friend of mine in the UK contacted me this week, saying that a mutual friend, who has run a very successful wholesaling business for many years, is in dire straits and asked whether I would contact him.

Now, obviously this isn’t what I said — well, not in so many words. I more tactfully suggested that he had become too close to the situation, the “wood for the trees” syndrome, and that together we should develop a new business strategy. He agreed and, I felt, even seemed happy to have a glimmer of a light at the end of the tunnel. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
