Energy and matter

Energy and matter
To run a great company requires vision and the strength to make the right decisions. Jonathan Jackson speaks with Eutility CEO Ryan O’Hare about profitability and teamwork.

In July 2012, Ryan O’Hare took over the role of CEO of utility cost management company Eutility. With an impressive and very successful background in telecommunications, Ryan took on the role with a definite goal in mind - to turn this professional energy services company into a major player in the power supply and maintenance market. There is of course a catch; no CEO can ever walk into a company and change the culture without facing one problematic factor. In Ryan’s case, Eutility is the family business.

A must read for sme's : Are you a thinker... not a doer?

"You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can't get them across, your ideas won't get you anywhere". Lee Iacocca

Many entrepreneurs are 'ideas people' or 'thinkers'. They sit down for breakfast and think about what they can do to change the world, improve their companies and inspire their people. Great ideas are good, but are nothing without being 'seen through'. There are many great entrepreneurs in history who had somewhat peculiar habits, but when it comes to strategy and the workings of how they made wealth and kept it, they each had something in common.

A thing or two we can learn from Bieber, Maguire and Di Caprio

It's no different to Justin Bieber, the Venture Capitalist, reportedly having earned $108 million over the past two years investing in tech startups like Spotify - becoming complacent because you think you have made it or everything is going swimmingly well, could be your biggest downfall. 

Justin Bieber is more than a pretty face. He is that of course, but he is also well and truly aware that it may not last forever. Rather than just continue the ride, he is astutely embarked on a second career as a Venture Capitalist, ensuring that not only will he have a life after the good looks fade, but money to boot.

Can you handle failure?

Can-you-handle-failure
Many entrepreneurs believe that if you embrace failure on your path to success, you will succeed. In fact, most successful entrepreneurs have failed many times, but the difference between them and the rest of the world is that they don't internalize failure - instead they embrace it.

How a man can make their woman more successful

How-a-man-can-make-their-women-more-succesful
Yesterday, I wrote a blog on how women can help their man be more successful. As promised, today I am publishing how men can help their women be more successful (in business).

If you are a man and lucky enough to have a woman that is determined, ambitious, talented and intelligent - as well as owning their own business or having a high flying career - then count your lucky stars. You are in the minority,

How a woman can make their man more successful

How-a-woman-can-make-their-man-more-successful
This may surprise many who read my blogs, but I am a firm believer that women should support their men.

Coming from a European family, where the men rule the roost and women play the pivotal role of supporting their man, I am an advocate of women doing what it takes to support their families and in particular, the men in their lives.

How to wear success on your sleeve

how-to-wear-success-on-your-sleeve
Success means different things to different people. I have said this before in my marketing blogs and I will say it again. To some, it means having a happy and healthy life. Others, it means how much money they make or how the world views their achievements. For me, it is something that I am completely unsure of.

Is your future tied up in your past?

"Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working on the present toward the future."
Denis Waitley.

If I look back at the past, I only see the positive influences that are directing me to the future. A fall in the park as a seven year old, taught me to be strong and that everything heals. A teacher in fifth grade that had me in tears because she dared to give me a A- on an essay, only to have to change the mark to an A once I brought it to the Head Masters attention, taught me to stand up for what you believe in. My Year 8 crush who never even noticed that I existed, taught me that not everyone is on the same page. Crashing my boyfriends new car when I was 20 years old into the garage wall while trying to park it, taught me to not sweat the small stuff.

Retailers are struggling, so do we buy online?

Figures released last showed the worst retail growth in fifty years as consumers deserted shops again in the end of financial year sales.

The 1.6 per cent annual rise in spending is the worst result since 1961-62 - an era when there were no credit cards and shoppers used pounds, shillings and pence.

The Bureau of Statistics revealed sales for the normally strong month of June had fallen by 0.1 per cent, following an 0.6 per cent drop in May.

Here's my take...

The most successful people, don't tell

The-most-successful-people-dont-tell
Have you ever noticed that the most successful people don't talk about how good they are?

In business, I am constantly meeting people who tell me how great they are. Women that sprout, "I won this award and that" and men that tell you how much money they want you to think they make.
