My friends and fellow entrepreneurs, welcome!
I’m Tim Knox, serial entrepreneur, bestselling author, radio and television host, podcaster, videocaster, blogger, dog lover, animal rights advocate, mama’s boy, devoted husband and doting dad, and the creator of The Entrepreneur Code.
I created The Entrepreneur Code for one reason: to help you greatly increase your odds of starting and succeeding in your own small business.
The lessons you’ll learn here are based on my twenty-plus years as a serial entrepreneur, teacher, mentor, and adviser to hundreds of entrepreneurs and their small businesses.
Here’s a quick overview of my qualifications.
- I’ve started multiple six and seven figure businesses in graphic design, software, technology, multimedia, and retail.
- I’m considered an expert in the areas of ecommerce, social media marketing, digital publishing, podcasting, videocasting, and online retailing.
- I’ve hosted a highly successful talk radio show and served as a business analyst for CBS television.
- I’ve been interviewed by The NY Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and many others.
- I was the small business expert for Entrepreneur Magazine for several years and wrote a syndicated small business advice newspaper column for five years.
- I wrote the Amazon bestselling book “Everything I Know About Business I Learned From My Mama” and will be publishing “Cracking The Entrepreneur Code” this coming summer.
- I was honored to host my friend Dan Miller’s “48 Days To The Work You Love” Infomercial.
As a serial entrepreneur, I’ve experienced amazing success and miserable failure.
I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t, what to focus on and what to avoid, who you can rely on and who you can’t, what sells and what falls flat…
And most importantly, I learned how to “crack the code” that can greatly increase anyone’s odds of succeeding in business.
The lessons I’ve learned along the way, combined with the experience of teaching over 500 entrepreneurs how to start and succeed in their own small business, have come together to form the concept behind The Entrepreneur Code.
You see, I believe you can greatly increase your odds of succeeding in business IF you do the homework and research required to:
- Fully validate yourself as an entrepreneur (how do you know you’re really cut out to start, run, and grow a small business?)
- Fully validate your “big idea” as one that will sell in the marketplace (how do you know that people really want or need what you’re selling?)
- Fully validate your customer base (how do you know people will give you money for what you’re selling?)
- Fully validate the competition (how do you know you can compete with the 800 pound gorillas that already dominate the business jungle?)
- Fully validate the market place (how do you really know the market will be receptive to what you have to offer?)
- Fully validate your idea’s odds of success for the long haul, not just the short term (how do you know your business will even be around in a year from now?)
In a nutshell, The Entrepreneur Code is all about asking and answering the really tough questions about yourself, your idea, your customer, your competition, your market, your industry, your funding, your operations, your team, and on and on and on.
There is no question too irrelevant and no answer too insignificant to make a difference in your quest for success.
Imagine investing a year of your precious time and thousands of dollars of your hard-earned money into working a complex jigsaw puzzle, only to discover that a vital piece was missing because you didn’t take the time to make sure all the pieces were there.
Now imagine that puzzle is your business and you’ll understand the concept of The Entrepreneur Code.
Many entrepreneurs either rush through or skip this process altogether, which is why 70% of new businesses fail in the first year, and only a small percentage of those that survive the first year make it to year three.
I have proven time and time again that The Entrepreneur Code can increase your odds of success exponentially, because in the process of cracking the code, you will learn everything there is to know about yourself, your product idea, your prospective customers, your competition, your market, and more.
You’ve heard the saying, “Knowledge is power.”
I disagree. I believe it’s what you do with that knowledge that truly gives you power.
I can give you the knowledge you need to become a successful entrepreneur.
It’s up to you to take that knowledge and do something truly powerful with it.
