Sunday newsagency management tip: plan for your future

April 28th, 2013 · 2 Comments

I am a firm believer that we create our own success. Yes, we have some supplier challenges but we often do ourselves no favours in how we deal with these. Today more than at any time in our past we have more control over our newsagency businesses. We decide if we grow, we decide if we fail and close.

In May I am exploring how we create our own success in the free Newsagency of the Future workshops. My Sunday newsagency management tip is that you should book to attend.  I don’t want to sell you anything. My goal is to give you insights and motivation to create for yourself a more successful newsagency business, a business you enjoy more

I promise you will be confronted by:

  1. A question that goes to the core of what is a newsagency.
  2. Challenges around exactly what type of business you want.
  3. An analysis of why more newsagencies are closing now than ever before.
  4. What the successful newsagents are doing for themselves in 2013 to be successful.

I’ll cover these and other topics using 2013 examples and data in an entirely new workshop I am creating for you this year.  This is a vitally important session for newsagents who want to build businesses of more value. The locations are:
