[00:00:00] Busting Common Entrepreneurship Myths

Most budding business owners forget that growing a new venture can be extremely expensive. Entrepreneurs should not expect overnight financial success. To curb unnecessary costs, Bizzultz CEO May McCarthy recommends creating a comprehensive business plan. Prepare for success by proving your business model is sustainable on paper before investing your hard earned cash. 

[00:05:45] If You Build It, They May Not Come

It's not enough to offer an exceptional product or service; sales won't materialize if consumers don't know you exist. From raising startup capital to differentiating yourself from the competition, McCarthy teaches us how to craft a winning marketing strategy and weather unexpected financial hardships.

[00:11:30] Creating Connections and Time Management

Moving full steam ahead, we bust three myths regarding business ownership. We learn how to build a professional network comprised of mentors and contract workers, become a master of time management and create a corporate value system.

[00:18:21] Visualizing Success With Positive Projections

Our society places emphasis on the rational mind, always looking for data-driven answers and neglecting intuition. McCarthy explains that while it's important to keep a level head, entrepreneurs must also learn to trust their gut. Tap into your innate knowledge and make instinctual business projections. 

[00:27:17] "Chief Spiritual Officer" Illuminates Possibilities

"If you stay focused on a completed outcome that you desire (not how you're going to get there), then you'll start to notice more possibilities to take steps to achieve that goal," says McCarthy. She shares how to illuminate potential solutions by releasing your internal "chief spiritual officer" and focusing on an advantageous end result. This insight will change the way you do business!

[00:33:18] May McCarthy's Daily Guide to Achieving Goals
