5 Steps to Getting Noticed in the Marketplace, Shane Whelan

Entrepreneurs are faced with great uncertainty and sometimes even bigger risks and obstacles. In the end most have this innate drive to keep pushing for their dreams to come true no matter what.

But sometimes, even the most driven entrepreneurs hit a wall. Shane Whelan, Owner of PetBidder and Pet Containment Services knows the struggle all too well. In the first full year he started his business he did well into six figures. By disrupting his tiny niche market he was all of the sudden on his competitions radar and they began to attack him. Bad reviews were popping up on Google and his Google Adwords were being hacked. He literally had to make it through the fire to get out on the other side. Shane chose to dig deep and embrace the fire around him. He sharpened his chops and became a nightmare to compete with.

Most times when things get hard we start to look to things that are outside of ourselves to help with whatever big challenges we have in front of us. Looking within is the key to your success and freedom.

If you feel up against the wall trying to stand out from the competition or you are overwhelmed and trying to figure out how to get through and not go back to your old 9-5 job, Shane says by doing these FIVE things below you can stand out and get clients to say YES no matter the competition. https://www.petbidder.com/

No Excuses, Reach Your Full Potential in 2019 with Soulaima Gourani

Soulaima Gourani dedicates her life to improving the lives of others. She helps people and companies shine by helping them unleash their enormous potential and find their real talents, purpose, and passions. And it all started when she was fired from my job while pregnant and expecting her first child back in 2007. At the time she noticed no one wanted to hire pregnant women. This inspired her to start her own business – her need for personal and professional freedom.

“I needed to create a sense of control over my own life. I never wanted to get fired again and have another organization take control of my life. I’ve also always hated organizations that are too “structured.” As a result that led me to co-write the bestseller, “Unboss”, because I felt like there was a need for organizations that were more independent and “free spirited," States Soulaima.

Soulaima Gourani is a motivational speaker and philanthropist and a Ted Talk Mentor who does approximately 200 public talks per year around the world. She is an advisor to major companies on customer loyalty, strategic networking, change management, employee motivation and future of business. She has worked as an advisor and speaker for clients such as Samsung, DuPont, LEGO, McKinsey, DELL, Microsoft, Stanford University, BMW, Cisco, and many more.

In March 2012 Soulaima was selected as one of the 192 management leaders in 2012-2017 by the World Economic Forum. In 2016 Soulaima was appointed by TED Talks as a mentor to the speakers.
