Don't Be The Bottleneck In Your Business! My name is Laurent Notin, I am an Entrepreneur, Coach to Entrepreneurs, and Start-up Mentor. Being an entrepreneur is the most exciting and demanding job I know. Entrepreneurs get to wear many hats, acquire many skills, and make many decisions – fast. All whilst under extreme pressure to deliver quality work to their clients, take care of their employees, and maintain a healthy cash flow. Entrepreneurship is a calling. No entrepreneurs set themselves up to fail. No entrepreneurs believe they can't do it. But it happens more often than we'd like to think. Why? Usually, because company's founders have locked themselves into a situation they can't get out of. They know something's wrong, perhaps they've seen some signs or people have warned them, but somehow, they don't act. Call it ego, fear, or lack of accountability. It doesn't matter. It happens when entrepreneurs become the main bottleneck in their business, and it's the biggest risk they face. There are many ways you can be a bottleneck, but the price you pay is always the same: you're stuck. When you're stuck, your business is stuck. That's when this podcast comes in. It’s all about helping entrepreneurs perform better so their businesses perform better. Subscribe now.

Every entrepreneur will tell you that entrepreneurship is a journey.
You usually begin from scratch with something that you’re passionate about but doesn’t exist, and patiently build it up piece by piece.
But the construction never ends. There’s always a new piece to add.
It’s a slow process, full of uncertainty.
Sometimes, you must destroy part of the construction and re-build. Sometimes, you must entirely give up and do someth...

If entrepreneurship is a journey full of uncertainty, there’s one thing that’s certain: Failure.
The problem is that no schools teach you about failure. It’s taboo.
Plus, we always read about the few that succeed, and then we forget about the thousands that actually struggle and fail.
Let’s be clear. Failure is the norm. Success isn't. You will fail. 100% guaranteed. If you think you won’t, maybe it’s time to check your ego....

Here’s my definition of discipline for entrepreneurs: Be organized, and get things done, one thing after the other.
Entrepreneurs are often creative people, excellent at what they do, but sometimes lack the business skills required to run a company.
My point: don’t worry, you can always learn the business skills (or hire someone). But you must excel at getting things done. And that requires to be disciplined.
So where to start?

Make no mistake, your number one job as a business owner is not to die.
In human bodies, blood is what keeps us alive. In a company, the life blood is cash-flow.
That’s why your #1 priority should always be cash-flow.
Cash-flow is the real cash, the money that you have on hand. It’s different from revenue or profit, which are numbers on a piece of paper. Cash-flow is tangible: you can see it in your bank account.
We go deep into book writing.
