Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Bruce Harrott, Owner of Bruce Harrott & Associates, located in Toronto, ON, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I help small business owners land and keep more of the right clients. I focus on each client’s mindset and attitude. The people who have worked with me always mention how much they appreciate the actions that I help them take. The ideal client for me is a person who is a freelancer or solopreneur who is struggling to grow their business. The person is also open-minded and willing to work towards change.

Tell us about yourself

After many years of working as a writer and marketing and sales, I felt a desire to help people more directly. I discovered the skill of coaching and studied for one year. My mission is to help people avoid unnecessary suffering in their life. And to become truly happy.

Developing strong relationships with clients.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Finding the right resources for support, encouragement, and practical advice.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Do your homework to make sure the business is viable.
  2. Write a marketing plan and get professional input on whether it’s realistic.
  3. Make sure you have enough cash on hand to get you through the first year.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?
