An entrepreneur must check his ego and keep it under control in order be able to lead those around him, nobody likes to work with an egomaniac.
I believe that meetings can be useful or a waste of time, if all you do at a meeting is inform staff of what you are doing or what you would like them to do, you are wasting valuable time that could be use to implement corporate strategy. This can be done with a memo.
In order for a meeting to be of some value it must include a free exchange of ideas, a good leader seeks to know what those who are in corporate battle field think. Because they are one who are in trenches, in a position to be able to hear what customers and employees are thinking and saying.
A good advisory service can sometimes be beneficial to assist in evaluation of potential merger and acquisition candidates, to help identify potential candidates for joint ventures, or investment. Also helps with due diligence process, structuring of transaction and development of corporate strategies for growth and investment.
A good advisory service will evaluate your company and advise you as to best way to go public, either traditional IPO, Reverse Merger or Regulation D (504) offering.
Once decision has been made on which method to use in going public (for many small companies is either Reverse merger or Regulation D (504) offering.) The consultant used, must be able to guide you through intricacies of public arena. And have financial industry contacts.
Don’t sit on your dream waiting for perfect situation because it may never come, had Bill Gates waited until Microsoft’s public shares could justify a higher price before going public, he might still be waiting.
Microsoft and Yahoo are not isolated situation but just two of many who looked at challenge and saw an opportunity. I guess old saying “ faint hearts never won fair ladies “ is still apropos today.
