Yesterday I had a chance to catch up with Rob Slee one of the countries lead authorities on private business.
Its June 2010 and mid way through the year. Great time to take a pulse of the private business market. So Rob and I had a 45 minute discussion about the status of the US private business market.
His Private Capital Markets book is taught all over the world when the discussion involves private finance.
He has also published "Midas Managers" and Midas Marketing" 2 books that involve case study after case study on how the global competition has changed the landscape of private business. US private business owners can only compete by becoming value architects and create multiple niches. Value creation does not come naturally to private business owners.
So here is what we talked about:
And here is the audio link to the 45 minute interview. The next 2-3 years will be a survival test for these small to mid sized business's and how they compete on a global scale. Compete or face extinction. With 50% of US GDP relying on the sales of these private business owners, we need to pay them more attention.
The Midas Nation site has many free resources including all of Robs previous webinars and recordings. Membership is free and you can sign up anytime to view previous recordings. Make sure you tune in for their next webinar in September.
And here is Robs details if you need to contact him. Email is the best method of contacting Rob.

Every successful business started with a strategy, implemented its strategy with clever marketing and grew its sales. In each of these stages there are different issues.
