Barry's advice for business
1 The idea is never enough
"Having an idea is like wanting to lose weight -- it simply doesn't work unless you put the work in. It's 10 per cent about the idea and 90 per cent about the application of the idea."
2 Get a business plan
"Get people with experience in your sector to read your business plan, and be willing to take constructive criticism on board. And don't be afraid to re-write your plan at any time."
3 Look for investment
"Get your plan out to as many potential investors as possible. The more investment offers you have on the table, the better options you have to choose from."
