In this weeks edition of the AmiSights Podcast, we talk to Jim Jacobs, CEO and Founder of Focus Insite, a nationwide market research firm. He explains how making a business plan and starting right away is the best path for entrepreneurs rather than waiting for the perfect conditions.
“You're gonna do half the revenue, and your expenses are going to be three times what you project on any spreadsheet, right? It just happens. But you have to be in the game and you have to swing the bat,” he says.
The main topics of today's episode will be:
How Jim’s business exploded during the pandemic because he pivoted from being a local recruiter to a nationwide recruiter.
How working as a sportscaster helped him learn how to ask the hard questions.
How Jim went head-to-head at a town hall with Bernie Sanders to advocate for small businesses.
