#21 The Business of Writing – Day 3 – with Small Business Specialist and Founder of Excellence Expected, Mark Asquith

The business world knows my guest today as a straight talking small business expert who helps early stage entrepreneurs navigate their lives and optimise their results. I know him as the guy in the TALK HARD t-shirt who tells me all my ideas are wonderful, then gently reminds me to focus on one thing at a time. Mark Asquith, author of ‘The 14 Day Guide to Cutting Your Working Hours and Increasing Your Impact’, has been working in digital technologies since 2001, and is founder of Podcast Websites, the hosting service for my podcast. His Excellence Expected podcast is the #1 small business podcast on iTunes and in his spare time he runs his design, brand and web agency, HACKSAW. He is the go to expert for all things branding, marketing and start-ups, and his speaking gigs this year alone included Belfast, London, Chicago, Barnsley, Philadelphia, London, Liverpool and Nottingham. A free take-away before we begin: the number one secret to any successful business is relationships. Your clients need to know, like and trust you before you sell ’em a thing, and the way to do it is through content, free content, lots of it. The old adage, give and you shall receive, is alive and thriving in the small business world, it seems. Oh, alright Mark, send me a TALK HARD t-shirt if you must and I’ll send you a pic from my very first Conference on the Gold Coast, We Are Podcast, 2016. Sound exotic, you reckon? Watch this space…
