Always have a business consultant on the side and avoid "on the spot" decision making. Designer mistakes.
Interviewer: Ösay more about that.
Bobi Leonard: Well, I find that, in my field, in the design business, I sit back and watch other designers and I see that when they donít have a consultant or mentor. Frequently, theyíll make a decision on the spot, what I call knee jerk decision making, and it may just be that one thing that puts them down. So my advice, always have a business consultant on the side.
I: Do you think you need an attorney or a team of professionals behind you?
BL: Absolutely, having a team, I call it the little mini team, that supports your company, even if youíre a small business just starting is so important. Why? Because having a book keeper that you trust, that understands our new software programs like Quick books or Even Studio, thereís a lot of good design software programs out there now. You are able to turn and know that that personís there for you to do all the busy work you donít want to be doing as youíre going into design.
