There are no ghouls, demons or ghosts in the bmt Promotions office but, there is always something bubbling, like a witch’s cauldron.

As much as we love it, running your own business can also be slightly scary for us, here are a few reasons why:
All the decisions that are made regarding the products we sell and market, how we advertise and communicate with people, where we choose our office to be and how many hours we work each day, as the owners, are totally up to us. We are accountable for everything that happens, good and bad, that can be daunting yet very exciting and rewarding.
Fear of the unknown
The promotional products industry is vast and ever-changing. Bmt Promotions need to be able to keep up with the changes and develop innovative ideas to improve our business continuously. We have many ideas floating about and it can be problematic to know which ones to pursue and which we think will work for our business. Uncertainty can creep in and here at bmt Promotions we can deliberate if our ideas are good enough but, the motivation to succeed overrides this. Brainstorming sessions seem to work wonders when we’re having any creative issues.
It is very simple to set up a business these days. There is no requirement for an office or warehouse immediately, all that’s needed is a domain name and you’re away! There are many promotional product companies out there doing an excellent job. The competition is huge and maintaining a presence in this industry is a challenge, but one that we thrive on and one that we will continue to work hard at upholding. We love overseeing our family run business and wouldn’t change a thing.
“Fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears, we can move forward stronger and wiser within ourselves.”
