Free Resources for Army Veterans in Sales

The Marketing Eye is all about supporting our veterans. In fact, I’m a veteran myself! After serving a tour in Iraq I pursued a career in sales and marketing and I haven’t looked back since. The Army gave me the experience I needed to be able to compete with the best in the private sector. And you can bet that I used every resource that was available to me when I started out.

The top employee perks outweigh salary

Having the benefit of being part of a global entrepreneurial friendship group, made up mostly from people through my travels around world, I am always interested in different models in which employees are remunerated or attracted to an organization.

What works well for one company, may not for another. The big corporate beast can be a lure and it can also deter the best talent - depending on what is most important to any particular individual. If you want to know what keeps employees in the game, and on your team, it may in fact be something that you did not realize.

It's almost time to clock off for the year, and start a new one. Are you ready? In Chinese custom, they clean their houses and life so that they can start a new year fresh. In business, it's not too different. If you really want to make the most of the new year, finish off everything that hasn't been completed and clean your house and find a new way of doing business in 2017.

Business is something that every entrepreneur has to work on every single day in order to achieve success.

Ranging from overall business strategy through to finance, human resources, technology, operations and the quality of your product or service.

Not just your average day. I started mine at 5 a.m. eagerly awaiting my flight time of 9 a.m. to Sydney, with so much anticipation and excitement, I literally couldn't contain myself. This past few weeks has been very exciting, adventurous and rewarding in so many ways - I can't begin to explain.
Take flight, and risk it all - if you truly want to be an entrepreneur

Like many business people, you have to get up early to take flights or make it to the office to meet a deadline. That is part of the parcel of being an entrepreneur. Some people prefer late nights, but I personally prefer and always have, going to the office or taking off on the next business adventure early in the morning.

I don't really like speaking at "all women" conferences. I am definitely not a gender specific person. I think every person is equal and should be treated likewise.

In fact, I think men now have it harder than women. With all of these mandates that say women should hold 50% of the positions on boards, many will now be overlooked even if they are better qualified, with more experience and capable of bringing more to the table.

But the fact of the matter is, many women have been overlooked for years. It's kind of pay back time - but I am not sure society is doing it right.

We are taught to do so many things in business; how to hire people, how to inspire teams, how to make money, how to get sales in the door, how to increase your profits. The list is endless, and somewhat exhausting. How, as an entrepreneur, can we get it all right?

Once I started accepting that I was in fact an entrepreneur, I started living it. Not quite like those who don't really have a job and say they are entrepreneurs to sound "cool" or so that one would think that they at the very least had some purpose - but more like the type that wakes up every morning and races to the office.
Insights into entrepreneurial adventures are never dull

Expanding to the United States was singularly the bravest thing I ever did, and it has set me up for profitability in the company in US dollars while the Australian dollar remains weak. Our offices make money and it has been an absolutely amazing journey. I have met some phenomenal people, all of whom have added to my life.

It also lead to a bit of "excitement" in my life. I was at a stage where I needed something to lift my game and expanding into the US market did exactly that.
