There was an episode last week, I believe on either Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, where Hattie showed nine things that make a business successful or that every potential business owner should understand.

I can not seem to find it.  Can you help?

There were nine basic things one should have basic knowledge of to have a successful business.

Thank You.

The easy link to get to that episode is here:

Also, you can review each point through these links:

  1. Communicate Your Vision
  2. Define Your Business Model
  3. Understand Your Numbers
  4. Form A Board of Advisors
  5. Commit To Quality
  6. Use Technology Aggressively
  7. Be THE Place To Work
  8. Sell, Sell, Sell
  9. Be Willing To Evolve


As a result of your note, I tried making finding a previous episode easier.

Now, cursor over TV in the header.  In the drop-down listing there is Current Season. That will at least show you little images from each of the last thirteen episodes.

Some stations air episodes from prior seasons, so you might explore the links there to four more seasons.  You'll notice that as you go back this area also changes to display even older episodes and prior seasons of the show.>

There is a lot of original content on the site and it does take a little work sometimes.  So, if you ever get stuck, please do not hesitate to send a quick question to me.  Thanks for asking!
