Paul Downs Video Blog: Skills and Advice

Recently, Paul had the opportunity to speak at The Pyramid Club on invitation from The Philly Authors Series and the Center City Proprietors Association. He spoke at length about starting, operating, and maintaining his own business, Paul Downs Cabinetmakers, for the past 30 years.  Mainly though, the talk was focused on Paul’s writing ability, his lucky breaks, and the path that lead him to write Boss Life: Surviving My Own Small Business.

In this video excerpt, Paul talks about the skills needed to start a business and how they differ from the skills needed to maintain and run the business. Paul offers the advice that made a difference for him.

Boss Life: Surviving My Own Small Business is now available at your local retailer and on Amazon.com.
