Video Transcript

Hi I’m John Watson with Accrue Marketing.

I launched my first business in 1998, and I knew I lacked experience. I was almost 30, married and expecting my first child. I knew I was taking a risk, starting a business. I needed to make it work, or else.

So, I went looking for help. I wanted advice from someone who had already made the mistakes; I was about to make. I wanted to create a business development roadmap. What I got was laughed at, brushed off, or one of many sales pitches.

I got busy, making mistakes and learning from them. I read everything I could get my hands on. I took sales, communication and leadership training. I hired business coaches and enrolled mentors. Eventually, I created the business development roadmap I was looking for.

It’s now more than twenty years since I started out. We’ve become the provider I wanted to find, all those years ago.

We’re offering a mix of start-up advice and business development support. We’re here to help people, start and grow businesses using the roadmap we created.

If you’re looking for more than a sales pitch on some random act of marketing, I invite you to Contact Us for a free discovery session. I think you’ll appreciate the roadmap and having a coach and partner on your team.
