Jim Buxton participated in the South Carolina Research Authority’s recent webinar, The Innovation Economy in 2020: Opportunities and Challenges in a COVID-19 World. The Greenville Business Magazine highlighted the message of the webinar, “You can still start a business these days and believe it will succeed.”
That message was made clear by Jim’s presentation, as noted in the article:
Attorney Jim Buxton, founding partner of Buxton & Collie LLC in Mount Pleasant, advised one beginning point for all new entrepreneurs: Plan on succeeding.
“A lot of entrepreneurs don’t plan on succeeding,” Buxton said. “But what if it works? That’s a phrase I usually start with in an initial meeting.”
He added that many entrepreneurs erroneously feel like “they have to do everything themselves,” when in truth they can employ a number of professionals and groups, such as SCRA, to increase their chances to succeed.
“The more you do yourself, the more crowded your mind becomes, and you don’t have the liberty of mind to focus on the execution of your plan,” he said. “So from the outset, the preventive medicine on any new idea has to be that you have to plan on succeeding and then rely on advisors to get you where you’re going.”
Buxton & Collie is proud to partner with many business owners and entrepreneurs. Calls us if we can help you succeed!
