A big welcome to #StartUpLife, our new videos series and as the title suggests, it’s all about the life of a start up. Over the course of the past 4 years with Big Red Cloud and indeed, way back to 1992 with Big Red Book, we’ve worked with thousands of amazing startup businesses. Using our accounting and payroll software, many of them have gone on to create employment for thousands of people in a wide range of sectors across the country.
During that time we’ve been handed great insights and from time to time, we’ve compiled those words of wisdom into a guide. Today, we have over 20 guides for business owners and managers and you are free to access and download them here. In addition, our blog and SmartBiz newsletter offer daily and weekly advice to our customer base and small army of followers on accounting and general business issues.
As much as we try with our guides, blog and newsletter, we do miss the nuances of the personal interview and the absolute honesty that you get from a video interview. This is typified in our first #StartUpLife video interview set with Oliver Cruise, owner of the brand new Network Cafe in Aungier Street, Dublin.
Interviewed by our CEO, Marc O’Dwyer, Oliver opens up, over the course of three short videos, on issues, such as following his dream to open his own business, in this instance a coffee shop, how branding plays an important role, and to cap it off, how crucial the partner selection is for your business. For Oliver and Network, key partners are 3FE for the supply of world class coffee, Clover for the supply of an integrated EPOS and payment management system and ourselves, Big Red Cloud, for the provision of an easy accounting software solution.
So, are you thinking of staring up your own business? We encourage you to watch #StartUpLife and listen to Oliver and how he made his dream come true.
