An Entrepreneur called Icarus – Wings of steel not wax!

5 12 2009

It’s been a while since I last wrote an entry on my blog and I apologise to all my readers, members and followers of my blog. Many of you have read my blog with interest over the last year or so and many of you have either come close to what I have experienced or have been directly affected by bankruptcy or administration of your businesses, while some of you have yet to embark of the wonderful journey of being an entrepreneur.

Either way we all dream of success and understand the challenges that we face in trying to make our dreams a reality. With 2.5 million people currently unemployed in this country and business failures at an all time high you sometimes wonder what our government is doing to bring positive change to aid the financial recovery of our great nation.

 Running the country is of course a business in itself and with the grips of recession starting to get behind us – are we really doing enough to support UK business owners and entrepreneurs, or can we do more?

We can criticise someone else’s decisions but it is only when we truly hold the wheel of the ship ourselves do we really understand what stormy seas can do to a man.

This is where a battle is either won or lost and strength is even grown or torn apart and relationships are either forged or ruined forever. It takes a greater strength than many could imagine or endure to navigate the perilous and unforgiving journey of running a business, especially if you have been or are building a business during a recession.

I name this entry on my blog “An Entrepreneur called Icarus” for a reason. We all know who Icarus was and of course his father Daedalus – Here is a recap:-

Icarus’ father, Daedalus, a talented and remarkable Athenian craftsman, attempted to escape from his exile in the place of Crete, where he and his son were imprisoned at the hands of King Minos, the king for whom he had built the Labyrinth to imprison the Minotaur (half man, half bull). Daedalus, the superior craftsman, was exiled because he gave Minos’ daughter, Ariadne, a clew of string in order to help Theseus, the enemy of Minos, survive the Labyrinth and defeat the Minotaur. Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings out of wax and feathers for himself and his son. Before they took off from the island, Daedalus warned his son not to fly too close to the sun, nor too close to the sea.

 Overcome by the giddiness that flying lent him, Icarus soared through the sky curiously, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which melted the wax. Icarus kept flapping his wings but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he was only flapping his bare arms. And so, Icarus fell into the sea in the area which bears his name, the Icarian Sea near Icaria, an island southwest of Samos.

The morale of the story here is this – When you start your business ensure that you can get the best solicitor and accountant that you can and ensure beyond a doubt that you have formed your new company correctly and you have all the correct statutory documents filled because if you do not then surely you will melt your wings and fall into the sea.

In 2009 it is expected that the number of business that failed will have doubled on last years figures. Could any of these businesses have been saved or is the simple truth that many of the business owners made decisions which resulted in their demise?

Whatever your point of view I believe that information, knowledge and support holds the key to preserving so many businesses now and perhaps may have prevented some of the business failures we have seen in the past – But who can provide this information and should the source provider be government run or should it be conducted in the private sector?

It is true that entrepreneurs combined with their courage and risk taking as well as their innovation skills and abilities play a major part pushing countries out of recession. Entrepreneurs create jobs, jobs create wealth and wealth is what recovers any country from recession – well that’s what I think at least.

Well back to the story of Icarus and his burnt wings! Well of course that’s me.

I had a dream in 2007 that I was destined to create an information, knowledge and support facility to help entrepreneurs and business owners increase their chances of success, decrease business failures and even help reduce the UK’s all time high unemployment levels of 2.5 million people.

Now lets get this into perspective if were to get all the UK’s unemployed people and put them into Wembley Stadium then we would need to fill it and empty it nearly 30 times to speak to them all. Add to the pot the 10,000 people who went bankrupt in 2007 plus the astronomical figures for 2008 and 2009 for both insolvencies and business administration and you have nearly the same amount of people as the population of Wales, Astounding isn’t it!

So why is it that entrepreneurs who risk everything to try and help increase business success rates at a great cost to themselves personally are sometimes so misunderstood?

There is a massive gap between the government supporting businesses from startup through seed stage and indeed growth and development. Of course there are business incubators and there are courses and mentors and if you look hard enough you may secure funding, investments and grants for your businesses – but what if the entrepreneurs that start these businesses are doing so without a high enough level of commercial acumen and business experience that is required in order to survive and grow? Well you get what we have now….

When will it change, when will the government realise that actually in order to increase business success rates that it is indeed entrepreneurs that are needed to teach aspiring entrepreneurs!

Give me 100 unemployed people from the DWP who have spirit, desire and will work relentlessly to build their businesses. FROM THE GOVERMENT I ask you to offer them funding so that they can survive and support their families financially and as long as they are not quitters, I will make winners out of them and even if some of their businesses do not survive, the process they will have opened up so many doors that they will surely not need DWP support even again – They will be innovated, motivated and will go on to teach their learning’s.

I have made my mistakes and I am sure I will make plenty more to come, but I always get back up even when I feel that I can’t walk or take no more. If the government will not answer then how about a TV production company, are you up for it and would you like to talk to me – I believe it and I know that I could do it.

You see we are not looking at the wider picture and it is costing our country million of pounds and it’s this.

Have you Pitched Simon Dolan yet?

26 10 2009

Have you pitched Simon Dolan Yet?

Simon Dolan went from paperboy to “Accountancy Guru” after he created SJD Accountancy now a multi million pound business that he started with just ten pounds. Simon’s firm currently employs around 150 people.

Simon is more than your average Entrepreneur, he runs a successful business and is now an active Business Angel investor. He has made the headlines recently offering a share of his £5 million investment fund to aspiring and experienced Entrepreneurs using Twitter.

When Simon was introduced to me I saw that he was not a high profile TV style Entrepreneur but something drew me to him and he kindly allowed me to run an interview. Read the Interview Here.

It was one of the most interesting interviews I have experienced. The reason I found it interesting was not because Simon is now a successful businessman but because he was listening to me and taking everything on board even though he had already gone through the adversity I spoke of. I could hear the cogs of thought, the calculation, the assessment of me and my business. It amazed me how quickly he grasped the concept of Million Impossible and took the time to ask about the business.

I was really inspired by the interview and have now had the pleasure of meeting Simon formally (I spilt coffee on his lovely reception floor at his offices) and I have met and interviewed his sister Lisa Keeble as well millionimpossible.com/entrepreneur-interviews.asp?iid=17″.

When you start a business it can be very difficult to secure investment and there are so many hoops to jump through. Simon has taken that myth and smashed it out of the ball park.

Simon Has Announced That He is Here & He is Here to Play!
I interviewed Simon again yesterday while he was enjoying a short break in Monaco with his family. I apologised for catching him on holiday and he said “No problem let’s talk”, that is the kind of support and availability you will get from Simon Dolan once you have passed the Twitter Test!

Million Impossible – The Entrepreneur Network


Why does Bradley Chapman think that he can help Increase the chances of Entrepreneur success rates?

16 10 2009

Bradley Chapman came up with the idea of creating a UK and potentially a World leading Entrepreneur based support business back in 2007 after he had been through some major personal adversity after breaking up with the mother of his two children. Bradley had been involved in a wide range of businesses and had worked 6-7 days a week for most of his working career but found himself not being able to find one place that he could go to that would provide him with a cradle to the grave entrepreneur support network to help improve his chances of business success. He found that there were singular specific facilities available on the market but not one all encompassing entrepreneur based support service.

Million Impossible’s online network was born during November 2007 with zero members – but Bradley had a big dream that one day the company would become a world leading Entrepreneur Authority. Million Impossible have now progressed the business and offer both online networking (Million Impossible) , face to face networking (Entrepreneur School) and publish a business Magazine called (Raw Business Magazine) which features high profile Entrepreneurs like Rachel Elnaugh, Duncan Banatynne, Doug Richard and Max Clifford – The journey Is far from complete!

With the launch of Entrepreneur School Chelmsford in June 2008 and with 10,000 registered online members the business now has 10 ES school areas planned to go live during October and November 2009 with UK wide coverage planned by the end of 2010. Each school is run by an ES leader, who is also a Million Impossible online networking member. Attendance levels range from 15-30 people per event (held every two weeks) . As the exposure grows and the word spreads so will our attendance levels….

But that is not the final picture!

The company plans to open 3 regional Entrepreneur training centres during 2010 – one in the north, one in the midlands and one in the south. The residential training centres will be called “Entrepreneur School”. The schools will be syllabus lead with experienced and established entrepreneurs teaching aspiring entrepreneurs how to start up their business (safely). There will be a second tier syllabus for companies established under 2 years and a third tier master class for established business.

The Overall Aim!

To provide start up business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs with comprehensive start up knowledge using an initial training course. Upon leaving the course they gain automatic membership to an online network of 10,000 online contacts (continually growing) to do business and network with. The third benefit is Entrepreneur School local events which provides the Entrepreneurs with face to face networking opportunities – In fact everything that a business would need to start, grow and succeed!

Indeed cradle to the grave… or as Bradley suggests “Dreams to Reality”

Mind over Matter – Does it Really Play a Part in an Entrepreneurs World?

14 09 2009

During the last four months I seem to have gone to hell and back. Two back to back burglaries in our current building, delayed lease on our new building, staffing issues, increasingly challenging revenue against cost targets. My recent workload is reaching unbearable levels which see me working crazy hours through the night and then missing parts of the day from being disorganised. From merchant service issues to dealing with the stigma of post bankruptcy…

Does mind over matter really play a major part in my day or with the business being nearly two years in have we reached the point that so many businesses fail to overcome?

I think that it is probably a mixture of the two. Mind over matter is very important as each day we face ultimate challenges that seem Impossible to overcome and equally we seem to have reached a point where we need to consolidate our brand and our values.

I have made so many mistakes with Million Impossible and our offshoot businesses that you can often forget to look at your successes. I know that I have learned a great deal in the process and indeed added to my existing skill set but at what true cost?

Time money, energy, passion and personal and business relationships could have all been cultivated and nourished much more beneficially. I find that I shield my true thoughts and try to be strong for others that are perhaps not as strong and experienced commercially – yet I preach that by not showing your true thoughts is a weakness, so am I being weak when I should be strong or am I actually being strong?

For those that have followed the Million Impossible journey you will know that we have come such a long way and have had to face and overcome many hurdles, some of which you know about and some you don’t.
I am thinking to myself right now “MIND OVER MATTER – MIND OVER MATTER” my goal is to create the Worlds leading Entrepreneur Business Networking website and Entrepreneur based publishing company “EVERYTHING ENTREPRENEUR” a website that entrepreneurs come to from all around the world because we have something that they want……….

I am also thinking selfishly to myself that my old job gave me so much money. I was employed at a corporate level. I was brought in to turn businesses around and after six months I had turned them.. Luxurious cars, great home, meals out, great clothes, holidays and money to treat my loved ones……….. but that would be just too easy and I do not think I would enjoy it anymore.

I have come this far we have a good team, a good product and an exploding market and all we need now is a little investment, some decent operational controls, a steady growth plan and we could achieve our ambition.

It is in my experience exactly these of wobbly thought patterns that see businesses and the entrepreneurs that run them FAIL and that is why I must continue, I must not falter an I must find a way.

So yes I do believe that MIND OVER MATTER plays a massive part of an Entrepreneurs business journey.
Do you have any thoughts on mind over matter, is there a commercial term for it and would you like to present a seminar at one of our Entrepreneur Schools to au audience of willing listeners. I would also like to features this person on our web site http://www.millionimpossible.com under our Mi features section.
Please email me at Bradley@millionimpossible.com or leave a comment.

Million Impossible-Entrepreneur Network Corporate Video 2009

9 06 2009

I am pleased to deliver our first Million Impossible corporate video which has been kindly created by Naomi and Hayden at Innovative Media Services. The video was created at our recent Business Startups trade show held at The London Excel Centre during May 2009.

Our stand which promoted our businesses, Million Impossible and Raw Magazine was probably the busiest stand there and attracted a very large audience and interest in what we are trying to achieve for Entrepreneurs. The corporate video below summarises what we stand for and what we are trying to achieve.

Million Impossible has grown dramatically over the last few months and our members are both engaging the site and starting to see the benefits of business networking. We have received letters of thanks and admiration for what we are trying to achieve.

We have re booked Business Startups for November 2009 stand number 442 and we look foward very much to seeing you all there again. Thank you all for your kind support and interest in our business.

Regards Bradley Chapman – Founder
