You’ll be learning from
Founder, Forbes and Inc contributor and special adviser to the creative industries, Remy Blumenfeld
In my late twenties I was working as a TV producer for a British channel that came off air. Overnight I was out of work. I wanted to sell my ideas for TV shows to broadcasters, but no one would order a TV series from a person. Broadcasters would only trust that much money and responsibility to a company.
So, I started my first business from my bedroom in Brixton. But, I had no experience of running a company. I knew the industry I was in was called “Showbusiness” but the emphasis was on the entertainment part. I secretly hoped the business would take care of itself. Needless to say, it did not.
On the way, I had to learn a lot about what it takes to build and grow a business, driven by ideas, that someone will one day want to buy. I learned by making many big mistakes that cost me millions of pounds. Mistakes I can help you avoid.
Eight years later, I’m happy to report, I sold my first company for a high multiple to the world’s largest production company.
Since then, I have served as director of Formats at ITV Studios, the production arm of Britain’s largest commercial broadcaster, and have acted as special advisor to TF1, France’s leading commercial broadcaster. I’ve operated at the highest levels in the creative industries. I have launched several content-driven companies.
These days I mostly use my decades of experience to support and guide founders of content-driven companies, like you, who want to grow and perhaps some day sell their company. My journey has been a life-changing experience, and my goal is to share this experience with you.
I offer a completely bespoke service that will take your company, step-by-step through the key stages of effective innovation. I will give you the clarity to identify a strategy that will drive your success and make you and your business stand out.

The Course Modules are
If you are stuck in fear of failure, then you will never succeed. When we protect ourselves from failing, we stop taking risks. Yet risk taking and experimentation are vital to your success.
In this module we explore the distinction of detachment. We case study successful entrepreneurs who have failed multiple times and find “Crew Mates” to counter the saboteur voice in your head.
Your self doubt is human. But it’s not helpful to building a business which at it’s core is based on you. Stuck in a place where you don’t feel successful, you’ll never build, grow and sell successfully.
Feeling deep down that you are good enough, that you are worth it, will transform the choices you make, the caliber of people and the value of the work you attract.
Through a series of powerful daily exercises, you will discover how to banish self doubt and become a magnet for greater success.
Are you afraid your business is not unique, special, or desirable enough to survive or thrive?
Stuck here, you won’t ever attract investment or sell. No one wants to buy from something ordinary, or invest in it. In this module you will define your company’s specialty niche and create an impactful mission statement.
Ever wonder why you do what you do? We are drawn to people and businesses with values that resonate with our own.
In this module you will give voice to what matters most to you as the founder and articulate your company’s values in a way that attracts clients, colleagues, and ultimately a buyer.
How many of your clients view you as a favoured supplier?Discover why fewer clients who feel well served will do more for your business than multiple clients whose needs you cannot fully service.
If you think you already know how to service your clients, you may be surprised.
Are you or your partners exactly the people who buyers trust most – and want to say yes to – in every area of your company’s business?
In this module you will discover how working with people who have more experience, more skills, or more connections than you will drive more sales for your business.
Your company itself requires more focus than any paid project. Learn how your team-mates can be incentivised to build a more profitable business.
Discover how to quickly institute systems, meetings, and procedures that will take away growing pains in the future and make your business a more desirable acquisition target.
Are you great at asking for support and advice?
Do you currently have the network of personal contacts required to grow and sell your business?
In this module, you’ll discover how to leverage the brands of successful leaders to take your company to the next level.
The market is crowded – the economy is uncertain. This can be an excuse for you to give up… or work 10x harder.
Working 10x harder won’t bring you success, and neither will giving up. In this module, we will look at what buyers are most focused on and how to start implementing changes to make your company a more desirable acquisition target.
