Petes Weekly: Running Your Own Show

If you run your own show, then sales are the only thing you can do to feed the kids, at least in the long run. The money that comes from sales is yours to do with as you wish.
Yet you cannot get a university degree in selling. They do not exist.
Nor can you get a degree in direct marketing or online marketing. These niche forms of marketing take up three lessons in an entire degree course on brand marketing. But these are the easiest, cheapest, most powerful ways to find people who want what you sell.
You can borrow money, but you need to give that back. That hurts, and you cannot borrow for long without sales to repay the first loan. So, sales are utterly crucial. And sales come from finding enough people who want what you sell. (That is the part called marketing.)
Yet, after meeting with thousands of people who own their own firms, I know just one thing: They all focus on what the firm does, rather than on selling what the firm does. Maybe that is why so few of us survive?

All the best

Open Season On Killings Whites in South Africa

Farm attack: Woman Dies For iPad, Laptop

Johannesburg – A 65-year-old woman was found murdered on her farm in Great Brak, near Mossel Bay, Western Cape police said on Sunday.

Police found the body of Ria Mills on Saturday night while responding to a call from friends she was supposed to meet for dinner, said Captain Malcolm Pojie.

Police arrived at her farm, Potsteel-Hoogte in Hamelkop, shortly before 20:00.

“The body of the deceased was found in the lounge with a gunshot wound to the neck. Police also confiscated a .38-Special revolver that was found on the scene.”

The gun would be sent for ballistic tests to determine its involvement in the murder.

Pojie said Mills’s iPad, laptop and her handbag were stolen.

He said preliminary investigations showed that the killers fled in Mills’s Chevrolet utility van, which was recovered on a footpath near the Wolwedans Dam on Sunday morning.

A post-mortem would be conducted during the week to determine the cause of death.

Please note as no pictures are available of Ria Mills at this time we used another picture from a previous farm murder, also of a defenceless Boer woman was used
