10 start-up tips

As part of the promotion of the Business Achievers Awards our friends in Fleishman Hillard arranged an interview with Sunshine FM on the Dublin Talking show with Lynsey Dolan. The podcast you can find here. We talk about love, SmallBusinessCan and the top 10 tips when starting a business.

  1. The importance of family support and clearing the lines
  2. Develop a view of the future
  3. Start with more then one idea
  4. Don’t go it alone
  5. Sales, sales, sales
  6. If you don’t love what you are starting, forget about it
  7. Tell the story
  8. Apply technology
  9. Understand finance and the financial consequences of all your decisions
  10. Enter theĀ awards and use the learning, lessons, support and publicity to boost your start up (this last one should not come as a suprise. After all that is why Fleishman Hillard arranged the interview).

What might suprise you is that we can help you with your application. Send your draft to and we will give you feedback. You can download the pdf of the application form here
