Michael O’Donnell of “StartupBiz.com” teaches fledgling business owners how to start a business with his video series about that very topic. O’Donnell is a very successful entrepreneur and relays far more than the mere do’s and don’ts to viewers, all of which is based on his own experience. He describes where ideas come from and how they can evolve into a new product, make an improvement on an existing one or even become a company.
In spite of his spectacular successes, O’Donnell also had what he describes as “three spectacular failures” from which he learned a great deal. “Pain is an excellent teacher,” O’Donnell said. “There is no reason for others to endure the same tough lessons I experienced.”
