Tom Adam – Advocate For Small Businesses

Oprah once quoted ‘You’ve got to follow your passion – You’ve got to figure out what it is you love – who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams.” Please share, how you had the courage to follow your own dreams.
 
Tell us what the word “Entrepreneur” means to you?
 
What has been the biggest lesson you have learned from being an entrepreneur?
 

People take you more seriously when you take yourself seriously.

What inspired you to start your own business, and how did you go about identifying a need in the market that your business could address?
 

I actually started my Martial Arts business because I wanted to share my skills and knowledge, I put up a website with “Coming Soon” and had 8 people contact me before I had even purchased the equipment to do it. I think it’s having a passion for something and showing the world, you’ll always find others who share that passion.

What is your favourite quote about “following your dreams”?
 

Aim for the Stars, who knows even if you stumble you may hit the Moon.

 
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start their own business?
 

Have a Vision, write a plan, break it down into small steps, then follow your plan as hard as you can.
