The most important rule about start ups is to actually have rules.
Many businesses that start up, their owners and creators feel that they do not need to follow rules because they treat the business as a hobby, and therefore set it up fail. Early days you can allow people freedom to express their creativity and even run a losing horse to death. Eventually these people have to learn to treat the business as their ultimate focus otherwise changes will have to be enforced, and the offending people  will have to be removed for the business to be taken seriously.
The one rule that needs to be understood, is that the majority of the shareholders have to kept onside, lose their backing and the business will disappear very quickly. Opinions and egos are just like weather, everyone has them, but they have no place in a business unless they add value to the business #startuptips #startup

All the time management seminars in the world are wasted effort unless you take this one simple step.

Story
Tagline
Speaker on how to use LinkedIn for business. Authorized to do so by LinkedIn's PR staff.
Introduction
I'm interested in all things social media and personal brand related. 
Happily married dad and a glass half full personality.
Work from home.
I build brands and networks to support clients online profiles and businesses including Rock Indy bands, business analytics, trauma cleaners, coaches, authors, analogue audio and claim care specialists.
Bragging rights
Just been appointed a school governor at my kids school. Still do not use a smart phone.... at time of writing. Escaped a chemistry exam by cricking my neck after flicking my hippy hair. Laughed out loud in my Biology "A" level practical exam when I was delivered a dog fish to dissect and realized I'd no hope of passing it, and coincidentally another of our school was sat next to me. Explaining the belly laughter to the examiner was a bit odd. Walked 19 miles in one day in trainers over the top of the Lake District. LinkedIn addict (ooops, did I say this out loud). My feet no longer smell.
