The Brighton Chamber summit http://brightonsummit.com/ is on Friday 16th October and this year is focusing on growth and growing your business.
Did you know however that Friday 16th October is also Steve Jobs day – a celebration of the life of a man who knew a thing or two about growing a business!
As a business that has experienced its own growth over the past 9 years since it was formed, and as the headline sponsors of The Brighton Summit, we’d love to hear your stories about the growth of your own business.
You can tweet us at @CountOnCardens or use the hashtag #GrowLikeApple and tell us which bit of technology or equipment has helped you grow your business.
We will retweet the replies and the 2 best responses, in our opinion, will win a £50 voucher each from our friends at Solutions Inc (@Solutions_Inc ) to spend on Apple products or whatever other items of shiny technology take your fancy!
Good luck from us all at @CountOnCardens
“I was worth over a million dollars when I was 23. And over ten million dollars when I was 24, and over a hundred million dollars when I was 25. And you know, it wasn’t that important, because I never did it for the money. I think money is a wonderful thing, because it enables you to do things. It enables you to invest in ideas that don’t have a short-term payback. At that time in my life, it was not the most important thing. The most important thing was the company, the people, the products we were making. And what we were going to enable people to do with these products. So I didn’t think about the money a great deal. I never sold any stock. I just believed that the company would do very well over the long term.”
—Steve Jobs, 1995. From the documentary, Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview.
