A bit about Kevin Weiss – President of Software Company McAfee, when he decided to take the jump – take charge of the 8 year old “Author Solutions” in 2007. A growing demand to help aspiring authors to self publish.
Weiss’s Keys to Entrepreneurial Success:
- Stay true to your “Vision” – What is your vision for your business? Do You Have One? Kevin says, ” A leader has to define the value drivers of a business and then build a business around that vision.
- Be “Innovative” business owners should look at the marketplace and figure out what customers want that they don’t know they want!
- Focus on Repeat Customers! If you don’t deliver high-quality services, you will have a one and done customer.
- Simple beats Complex – an open architecture beats closed – “Don’t build something and make it so proprietary that know one else can figure it out and no one else can team with you!
