Serial entrepreneur and strategic workforce development
1303_ 10/26/12 - We are speaking with a serial entrepreneur... Of course, we've talked with Melodie Reagan before - so we've asked her to give us a rundown of what she's doing now. She tells us, i2iWorkforce is a strategic workforce development firm. We do recruiting, contract staffing, training and coaching. We have over 20 workshops that are soft skills development. But, we are also moving all of our content online. Crazy Good Marketing is a marketing agency with a twist. We use freelance talent throughout the U.S. And, we do everything from deploying individuals, like someone to help with the website, all the way through to doing turnkey marketing themes that are on-demand for our clients. Melodie deals with entrepreneurs all the time. We asked, what are the biggest challenges facing them today? She replied, "I'm going to sum it up in one word, money. Money is the biggest challenge. I know entrepreneurs that are looking for money to fund their businesses and grow it, and it's hard to get. Even for yourself, if you're getting second mortgages, all the way through private equity and venture capital. Everything about money - so business is about money, and getting other businesses to buy their services - and when they do buy it, they're looking to get more for less. So very simply, money." We also discussed with Melodie what were the greatest opportunities today and asked her, "what advice would you give to a wannabe entrepreneur?" Listen for great insights into today's business environment...
