This week, Nick talks to entrepreneur and four-time best-selling author, Paul O'Mahony, who specialises in digital marketing mindset and wealth management, about how businesses can best leverage social media in order to achieve scale.
If you can't manage your emotions, then the stock market is not an ideal place to play. With an online business, the only risk you take is giving over your time.
The biggest risk that anyone takes in today's society, is not having a plan outside of the usual career path. Far too many settle into a routine and stay there.
Get clear on your goals quickly. Decide where you want to be and start forming a plan that'll get you there. Every day you wait is a day you're losing out.
Ascertain whether or not there's a real demand for your business. Do people want what you are offering? Always be sure that what you want to sell is something that will land, and not just an experiment.
'With an online business, the only risk you're putting in is time'
'I had this incredible confidence, which you can only put down to massive levels of naivety'
'If you keep doing what you're doing, then you're one flu away from financial ruin'
'As soon as you get clear on your goals, you'll quickly realise that where you're going financially is not going to get you there'

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development - showing up and being the best version of myself ... every day.
My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations - so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms - utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
