The Five Most Common Mistakes of Small Business Owners and How to Learn From Them

We’ve all made mistakes as entrepreneurs, but the key is to figure out how we can learn from them. 

When we say our webinars are ‘presented for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs’, we really mean it, and next week’s webinar — in association with Hiscox Small Business Insurance and presented by esteemed columnist, author and small business consultant, Gene Marks — is no exception.

The event, entitled ‘The Five Most Common Mistakes of Small Business Owners and How to Learn From Them’ will relay points from Gene’s latest book, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, to address the mistakes that entrepreneurs make when launching and running their small business, as well as tips and tricks to avoid encountering those dreaded stumbling blocks.

Gene will also provide best practices and advice through a Q&A session at the end of the webinar, hosted by our very own noted small business expert, Andrew Patricio.

But who are the small biz gurus behind the webinar? Let’s find out…
