Carol Roth on Getting Help as an Entrepreneur

Written By: Catherine Morgan | Comments Off on Carol Roth on Getting Help as an Entrepreneur

Why would you make the same mistakes somebody has made before? Sometimes entrepreneurs fail to reach out for help because they think they should know it, or will be able to find the information themselves.

But here’s something to consider: People are really helpful, and might even be willing to give you information for free – just to be helpful.

However, it is critical to be specific about what type of information you need. Do you need recommendations for manufacturing purses in the U.S? Do you need information about pricing group coaching packages for mom entrepreneurs? Negotiating commercial leases? The more specific you are, the easier you make it for someone to help you.

Carol also talked about the differences between creating an advisory board versus a board of directors, and what you need to do to effectively manage your advisors.

This was a short but juicy conversation.
