    In terms of cost, Berlin and Tel Aviv are cheaper, so it can be an advantage.

    London, New York and Silicon Valley are great places to set up a business, but too expensive for many. Anyway I love NYC, London and SV.

    Madrid, Spain — Start-ups spawned from economic crisis

    https://www.ft.com/content/2a24989a-4d03-11e6-8172-e39ecd3b86fc

    Last year, Google opened one of its innovation campuses in Madrid — one of only three in Europe. Amazon last month set up a tech hub in the city, and is planning to hire 100 software engineers by the end of the year, while BBVA, the Spanish banking group, has a fintech incubator in the capital. There is also a rapidly growing number of Madrid-based start-ups — such as ride-hailing app Cabify — that are raising both money and interest across the continent and in the Americas.

    @Don Kerr Your father followed a philosophy that assures "success"
    'His secret was this - each of his sales people had the opportunity to participate in the ownership of the business upon achieving certain targets'
    Regarding the comment "Prospects demand to deal with the principals"
    Bringing staff and sales into ownership allows the 'prospect to understand they are dealing wth principals.
    We have always empowered employees to make decisions as if their business depended on it, because it did.
    Our food service businesses provide the foundation of many young employees to move on to rewarding lives.
    And so did other business venues.
    Many employees actually became 'competitors', which only enhance our own growth and profitability.

    Hi @Renée 🐝 Cormier and @Don 🐝 Kerr... great discussion; one of the reasons that I like beBee so much. Don, I think your two examples call out an important couple of points — not all businesses need to (or can) build out the Sales Channel and it's important to understand the customers decision making process. I think we saw that in your first example... the type of product/service you sell, the customer expectations and how they purchase need to come into play... it sounds like in reality the principles were the ones closing the sale and unfortunately it was something that just could not be "scaled" into a traditional sales team (or at least not in a profitable way).
    Don 🐝 Kerr
    16/08/2017 #7 Don 🐝 Kerr
    #6 @Renée 🐝 Cormier I think you're mostly right and my father did nail all four of your requirements. The only issue I have regarding the design industry experience is that #1 is a real challenge for the sales team as the prospects want to deal directly with the principals at all points in the process.
    Renée  🐝 Cormier
    16/08/2017 #6 Renée 🐝 Cormier
    #5 Interesting @Don 🐝 Kerr. My thinking is if your sales people can't sell your product, then they are seriously lacking in qualified leads, training and or incentives. Sales can be a pretty tough gig, but you only need sales people if you can't physically follow up on your leads. If you need a lead generator, then get one. If you need capable people to get deeper into your market, you had better be prepared to: 1. show them what works in your industry. 2. give them the resources to be successful 3. give performance based incentives 4. treat them like they matter as people. I don't know everything your father did, but it sounds like he definitely got 3 and 4 down.

    @Renée 🐝 Cormier @Graham🐝 Edwards And, now to provide a counterpoint to my last comment - my father founded and operated his own company for decades. He was a distributor of industrial tools and related products throughout North America. He started very small with one simple idea - he would only take on products for which he could secure the North American patent rights. This was his way of selecting top grade product and ensuring some protection from competition. Eventually he grew the business and began to build a sales team. His sales team in North America grew to about 10 people and his business enjoyed profitable growth. His secret was this - each of his sales people had the opportunity to participate in the ownership of the business upon achieving certain targets. This proved to motivate each individual and relieved my father of much of the motivation management job as the team urged each other on for the greater good. As the business grew so did their ownership and profit sharing. One other point, my father was rigorous in his recruitment and always insisted upon having at least one interview at the prospective employee's home with the spouse present. He wanted to get a good sense of the character of each individual and how their home life reflected the support he or she would receive.

    @Renée 🐝 Cormier @Graham🐝 Edwards I am sure many will find this most insightful. Here's part of the challenge I have witnessed - at least in my area of business which has for years been designed communication. I worked with and managed four design firms. At each one we hired sales people - even with the acknowledgement that 95% of our business was secured through the professional networks of the business principals. At each one the sales team produced diddly squat. In fact, at one point I was managing director of one of North America's largest design firms (billings in excess of $20MM/year). The sales team of four required an annual investment of $300K. In my second to last year at the firm, while doing the annual budget, I calculated that this team produced sales of exactly $85K. The new business target was $1MM and we exceeded that target by $200K. To repeat - we achieved a new business target of $1.2MM and our $300K sales team accounted for $85K of that total. Even a simpleton can see that the math doesn't make sense. While the numbers were different at the other three firms the results were consistent. In business where the major differentiation is the reputation and skill of the principals it is extraordinarily difficult to find sales people with even marginal skill in effectively communicating the company's capabilities. Prospects demand to deal with the principals and that is how we moved forward. In each case we disbanded the sales team and experienced no loss in opportunity and achieved a better financial result.

    Worthiness

    For business women, the issue of worthiness is complex and deep. It is the essence of your business. Your worthiness is seen:

    - in the way you speak to clients (relaxed or scared),
    - the devotion to the change you can provide to them (doubting or empowering),
    - clarity of your offering (confusion or clarity),
    - energy of your pricing (too low/high or just right),
    - the way you deal with mistakes (process quickly or wallow) and
    - the way you deal with success (enjoy or ignore).

    Just evaluate these and you will get a concrete sense of how worthy you feel in relation to your business. If you see a gap between how you perceive yourself inside and how you actually show up, it’s time to transform this discrepancy. Learn how here -
