Experts Weigh In: How has luck played a role in starting your business?

Being a successful business owner takes a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we wanted to find out in what ways our small business owners have gotten lucky with their ventures.

Here’s what they had to say…

1. “It sounds weird to say it, but a family illness was actually the spark of luck that gave me the drive (and the excuse) to start my business. I have family in East Africa, and when one of them became very ill I ended up visiting them and staying there for a few months. I had time to pursue my dream of starting my own company, and it quickly took off. Luckily my family member got better too!” –Max Robinson, Mahlatini Safari (more…)

Experts Weigh In: What’s the luckiest thing to happen to you and your business?

With St. Patrick’s Day quickly approaching, we’ve got luck on the brain! Running a business takes a huge amount of work, but, ask any entrepreneur, and they’ll always tell you that there’s a little bit of luck involved.

We asked our small business owners what the luckiest thing to happen to them and their business was. Here’s what they had to say…

“My small business was lucky enough to acquire a massive client right at the end of our launch. As I finished my speech he asked, “Are you accepting paying clients?” Needless to say, he is now a client. It put the icing on the cake that was the launch of my business.” –Bryant McNamara, Initial PR (more…)
