2013 Business Boot Camp: Time to Take Control

A very special offer for Global Entrepreneurs Week (18th - 24th Nov 2013) where business owners and entrepreneurs and can learn the 12 essentials of business success at a fraction of the normal cost* £ 9.99! In 2013 the nightmare headline for entrepreneurs and new business owners in the UK is as follows: 62 per cent of all start-ups will fail within their first year of trading. This is an astonishing statistic, and one that becomes even worse in certain parts of the country. In parts of the UK business failure rates have reached almost 85 per cent. Necessity is the mother of invention is an old adage but one that holds true today. Youth employment is at a 60 year low. Young people face a dearth of opportunities, and some of them are taking it upon themselves to pave their own way. The generation of entrepreneurs to come out of the abysmal job climate may be the silver lining of these tough economic times. Yet the truth is that half a million people per year set up new businesses. They need help and they need great advice. Imagine a boot camp where they will get great advice, hear from the experts in the field and understand the key elements for business success, all at an astonishing £ 9.99! People set up in business for a number of good reasons, including being in ‘control’, ‘being their own boss’, ‘getting a better work / life balance’ and of course, ‘freedom’. Do any of these thoughts resonate with you? Most business owners work very long hours, for very little reward. They often cannot afford or have not planned to take on anyone else.


The entrepreneurial instinct is the mental toughness that is required to make something from nothing. It is the mind set that allows you to take smart risks, thrive in ambiguity and bounce back from failure. It’s the reason why the team that looks good on paper doesn’t always win and why the drop out becomes a billionaire – we hear that story over and over again. But here is the really stunning fact you may recognise; most of these business owners end up investing all their money (or family savings) and giving up the very reasons they started the business: freedom, work / life balance and control. Far be it from being in control, most businesses and business owners are in fact spinning out of control, being highly reactive rather than proactive, with no real goals, no clear vision and many being so time deficient that there is no time to think, let alone have time for a plan.

Owning a business requires a vision balanced with attention to detail. You need to be a generalist who understands the multiple aspects of running a business, as well as the ability to step back and see the big picture and to reach into the future. The business environment is a complex place to be. Whether you wish to work as a consultant or freelancer, establish a corporation, or set up an operation that meets a need for very particular type of customer, there is a tremendous amount of information that you need to know and to apply. The Academy of Vocational and Professional Training is providing 12 express training courses that explore the essentials for new business owners, whether the business is just in the idea stage or have already begun and need to fill in the gaps. Normally retailing at £474 we can offer each subject at £ 9.99! Book here at AVPT and start the journey to Business Success. Entrepreneurs are impulsive and adaptable. In business, impulsivity translates to a bias to action. When counterbalanced with a personality that is adaptable or knows how to roll with the punches, it is a winning combination for taking risks for gain. Entrepreneurship is a career path in which evolution is the norm and failure is a given. Persistence, optimism and resourcefulness are traits that pop up over and over again. Now here is the crucial point so often ignored by new business owners. You need the ability to get on with other people. A brilliant ‘soft skill’ that can be acquired. A large number of businesses fail because they are over-reliant on a very small number of clients. This is the hidden danger that lurks for all business owners. It takes just one unexpected

closure to result in significant financial hardship. Short-term future earnings can be massively reduced, and invoices for completed work can go unpaid. While maintaining caution about spreading yourself too thin, try not to rely on a very small client base. If you deal with a very few clients, or if a small number make up most of your turnover, you must start finding and bringing in new clients and business.


Effort only fully releases its Reward after a person refuses to quit A business needs a good business plan that covers all these issues and makes them part of a living, working document. If you want back control of your life and your business then write a plan and get help. Business failure can be quick and unexpected. Make sure that you are totally aware of the major risks facing your company and ensure that you are in the best possible position to avoid them. Treat entrepreneurship as an evolution. Where you start is rarely where you land once you have been in the market for a while. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak got their start hacking ma bell, amid their experimentation in phone phreaking Wozniak discovered his technical skills and Jobs learned he could sell and that led rise to one of the greatest technology businesses of our time. We can tell you that the road to success will be long, windy and full of potholes: Be strong about conserving resources, learning from experts and follow a plan. That means start small, focus on bootstrapping and take steps to lengthen your financial runway so you can last the journey and get help with the experts.

The road to success will be long, windy and full of pot holes

Quality, Standards & Accreditation Accreditation and educational quality assurance are essential factors that complete the educational ecosystem. In the wake of growing globalisation, an increasing number of students are opting to study at education institutions or work for companies outside their home country. It is imperative to have standards that are both regionally and internally recognised and accepted. It is for that reason that AVPT Global sought and attained in June 2012 full global accreditation from the International Accreditation Organisation (IAO) to ensure that students around the world would truly benefit from our courses and awarded a certificate that would have some true value globally.
