MEP 17 – What it takes to build a successful micro business

October 10, 2014
Rick Lowe

In episode 17 of Micro Entrepreneur: the magic of thinking small, I had a great time speaking with Rick Lowe, a speaker I heard recently talking about the 7 F’s To Fine Tune Your Business. He presented 3 of the F’s and I was hungry to learn more about the rest. So I invited him to come on the show and spill the beans!

This week’s guest

Rick Lowe is Joint MD at Brands In Limited and MD of Joystick Junkies and has an enviable client list including EA Games, River Island, Next, Topshop and Topman.  Rick developed his fashion and lifestyle brand called Joystick Junkies and took the brand from making ‘dodgy’ tee shirts to becoming fully fledged fashion brand, sold in retail stores across Europe and the USA. He raised both private and bank finance to fuel the growth, as well as built a team of talent to drive the enterprise forward.

What we covered in the show:

We looked at the game changers – what you can apply in the modern business world and manage the shifting sands

And the 7 F’s including:

  • Fearlessness and why you need it
  • Focus and mindset
  • Fast – you need to keep moving
  • Flexible – is the best approach
  • Failure – why you need to look for the lessons
  • Fuel and fitness for the body and the mind
  • Freedom – financial, spiritual, creative – it needs to be enjoyable
