On this episode of ScaleUp Radio, we’ve got something a little special.
As part of a BizSmart meeting, we had a presentation from Mark Wright.
Mark is the CEO of Climb Online, a very successful digital marketing agency.
You may also know him, however, from the TV show The Apprentice, which he won in 2014. As a result of that Lord Sugar invested in his business and is on the board of directors.
In this presentation from a couple of months ago, Mark talks us through his business journey and the challenges he’s faced and overcome along the way.
As you can imagine, there is an awful lot of value in this episode.
Mark talks about the process of appearing on, and winning, The Apprentice, as well as also covering:
- How luck and having ‘famous’ friends isn’t as important as being an industry expert. Know your sector - and be known for knowing your sector
- The adage ‘Hire slow, fire fast’ is so true. We’ve talked about it before on ScaleUp Radio - but Mark’s take on *why* it’s so true is worth a listen
- What the *real* key to a successful business is.
- The best relationship to have with your employees; how to get the best out of them, for good and bad
There’s also a section at the end of the presentation where other business owners get to ask him a few questions.
Mark is an incredibly successful entrepreneur, and it’s clear how passionate he is about not only his own business - but helping other business owners to succeed also. You’ll definitely find something in this episode that will go towards your own scale up journey and help to make youmake you a better business owner.
