The Entrepreneurial Ambition’s blog will be undergoing a complete redevelopment. I will be updating all content to improve quality and encourage more engagement.
As I have been working as a ghostwriter, I have learned how to produce the content my target market wants to read on a consistent basis. This has forced me to take a hard look at my past writing, which left me with no other decision but to provide my readers with nothing less than stellar content.
Entrepreneurship involves you analyzing your performance to ensure that you’re always providing the best value possible. Therefore, I’m focused on improving to provide entrepreneurs with the best content focused on entrepreneurship. Continue reading
Do you know what I hate hearing? And I mean really hate hearing.
Entrepreneurs who say that they hate selling.
What do you mean you hate selling! Selling is what fuels your business. Selling is what puts food on your table.
Saying something so stupid as an entrepreneur is irritating.
You are probably thinking that I have a background as a professional salesman. Why else would I be so passionate about selling?
No, I am not a professional salesman. Although I am a sales affiliate for Dream Big Youth Travel, which is another source of my income.
I am just a strong advocate for entrepreneurs knowing how to sell. And not just knowing how to sell, but knowing how to effectively sell. Continue reading

It can be hard to get an accurate temperature of the small business climate. Some experts will tell you that small businesses are doing quite well; while others will say small business owners are struggling. The inconsistencies of information being put out will make a person wonder if it is worth it at all to become a business owner.
There are arguments about the tax code being too hard on small businesses.
There are arguments about the economy being too slow for small businesses.
There are arguments about small businesses having a lack of resources and support.
While these arguments may be valid, they are not the end and be all that determines a business’s ability to perform within the marketplace. The ultimate determining factor that leads to a business’s success is the business owners ability to develop the strategic process which will produce successful results.

Over 90% of startups fail and there are about 627k new business started every year. This is not meant to be an in-depth business overview but merely some tips to keep in mind to assist a startup in not contributing to that 90% statistic.

Investing in reliable software, or even just high-quality office organizer that you can use to keep track of and organize your budget may be worthwhile, depending on your needs. Continue reading
