What sets businesses apart? Why do some succeed and some fail, especially during economic down turns? As an investor, these are extremely important questions. Understanding them is the key to making decisions about where and how to invest.
To answer these questions, I’ve been doing a series on About Money. Each week I’ve been joined by a different CEO or President from a company which survived the Great Recession and is now flourishing.
I believe all of these companies demonstrate qualities which distinguish them from their competitors:
- People – These companies recognize the value of their own staff and customers. Putting people first ensures consistently great service is provided.
- Inventive – These companies are not installing the newest technology. Rather, they create disruptive technology, ensuring their products and services are always on the cutting edge.
For more information on all of these topics, I encourage you to listen to About Money, a weekly podcast and radio show. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for blog updates, podcast news, and more!
