Today he joins us to discuss small business ownership as a primary method of building wealth. In this show John discusses getting mentors, developing entrepreneurship groups, funding your start up, building local and then reaching out nationally or internationally.
He then goes into why value add is a great entry method into business start up. How you can gain insight by talking to local businesses and business owners. John also explains the necessity of a simple business plan, keeping employee head count low or even to zero and learning from your mistakes.
