  • Here are couple of scenarios I want you to picture in your heads. Me to client: Why did you decide to start a business with your father? Client: Well you need to understand that when I was growing up my father was an alcoholic and I had to be the man of the family. Now that I have my degree and accountancy qualification and my father has been made redundant, I want to get him back on his feet again. Here is another. Me to client: So what brought you here from Ghana? Client: My father was a senior civil servant but got the wrong side of those in power and was killed. My 5 brothers and sisters all had to leave the country for our own safety. These are both situations I encountered soon after offering one to one business advice clinics the Business & IP Centre.

  • I’ve found three very different market drivers for the simplest of products, water – Bling – Purity - Ethical Bling h2o – a US product selling for around $50 a bottle - justifies its price tag by putting Swarovski crystals on the bottle and making Paris Hilton Its Patron Saint! Purity – Tasmanian Rain Water - uniquely pure water is captured as rainwater on the pristine island of Tasmania This uniquely pure rainwater is captured on the pristine island of Tasmania, Australia where the air is scientifically proven to be the purest in the world. The air currents travel over Antarctica and 10,000 miles of open ocean eventually reaching the western most part of Tasmania, "the edge of the world". Here, TASMANIAN RAIN is collected before ever touching the ground, therefore never absorbing impurities, and resulting in a water that is ten times more pure than other premium and artesian waters. Ethical – Number one according to Ethical Consumer magazine - Belu donates 100% of net profits to Wateraid, which distributes it to clean water projects across Africa and Asia. Belu is the UK's most eco-friendly bottled water. It is 100% carbon neutral with the UK's first plastic bottle made from corn not oil. We deliver one month of clean water per bottle we sell and donate all ..
