Learn to be a better entrepreneur, so you can build the business of your dreams.

You’ve got this dream.

You’ve got this dream of making life better.

You’ve got this dream of making life better doing the work that you love.

And to make this dream a reality, you’ve got to build a business. To build the business you dream of, you’ve got to learn the business of your business.

You’ve gotta learn how to stand out among your competition.

You’ve gotta learn how to get your customers attention.

You’ve gotta learn how to get your customers to want you.

You’ve gotta learn how to get (and keep) the right people on your team.

You’ve gotta learn how to get your customers to come back to you again and again.

You’ve gotta learn how to be an entrepreneur.

TRY Business exists to make you a better entrepreneur.

You don’t have to go to business school.

You don’t have to spend years learning everything on your own through trial and error.

You don’t even have to do everything on your own if you don’t want to.

And you don’t have to lose your soul, or pull your hair out along the way.

I’m here to help.  I want you to achieve your dream.

And I want you to do it in a manner that works best for you.

So I provide tips on how to build and grow your business on the blog, these videos, and books.

I created a free business planning tool for you to apply what you’ve learned so you can make it work for your business.  If you prefer to have me work with you directly on your business, I can do that too.

And there’s also a home for you and the rest of our small business community to come together, connect and share with each other along our collective journey to success.

You’ve got this dream of making life better.  My dream is to do what I can to make sure that you do.

About TRY Business founder Sonia Thompson

Hi, I’m Sonia, the founder of TRY Business.  I’ve pretty much loved marketing for as long as I can remember.  I believe my career aspirations were heavily influenced by the likes of Gina on the show Martin, and Eddie Murphy’s character Marcus in the movie Boomerang. Both were cool advertising execs.

Since the marketing bug never went away, I decided to study business in college and got an MBA from Florida A&M University.

Now I combine more than ten years of experience as an entrepreneur, marketer and business leader for large healthcare companies such as Johnson & Johnson, along with many more years of experience as an observant, delighted, and at times frustrated consumer to help entrepreneurs succeed with their businesses.

I have been known to break out into dance when so moved.  For the record, 1990’s hip hop and R&B often moves me.

You can find out more about my professional background in the corporate world here (some boring stuff), and get to know me a little better by watching the video below (some fun stuff).

Update since making the video:  I decided I needed some more beach time, so I ditched Philly and moved back to sunny Florida! 🙂
