The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

Smarter Business Starts With a Smarter Strategy.

Today is a great time to think about the year ahead, what you must do to increase market share, attract new business, and build greater value.

Which is why the business failure rate continues to ravage the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs everywhere.

The Purpose of Business…

One of the greatest articles ever written on business success was drafted way back in 1960 by Theodore Levitt entitled, Marketing Myopia and makes the case for why businesses of every size either succeed or fail.

I was on my 4th or 5th business by the time I read this article in the Havard Business Review.
