If You Could Ask a Successful Small Business Owner One Question…

Posted by on Oct 21 2008

Interviews with small business ownersSeveral years ago I did a series of “Self-Employed Success” interviews. The purpose of these audio interviews was to ask successful small business owners how they defined success for themselves, as well as how they achieved it. While there certainly are some patterns among the interviewees, there are also some surprisingly dissimilar avenues to success.

You can listen to those interviews here.

In 2009 I will be conducting another series of interviews with new people. If you could ask a successful small business person one question, what would that question be?

What are you aching to know?

Who would you like me to interview?

    I would ask which marketing techniques they found the most effective.

    Thanks for asking!

    Great idea. I’d like to know what they thought made them successful, like what personality traits and habits.

    Thank you,

    Does internet marketing really work for small business? And if yes, which specific techniques are most valuable?

    What event or milestone made them realize / believe that they were “a success.”

    What was their initial internet $ investment and what contributed more to their success – web activities or personal speaking engagements?
