“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” – Mark Zuckerberg


Why business owners should take risks

Businesses naturally cannot thrive without taking some risks. However, this doesn’t mean risks shouldn’t be calculated. Here are some reasons why risk takers are winners:

-Innovation cannot take place without risks
-You learn from taking risks: failure will teach you how to think and plan strategically.
-Risk takers have a competitive advantage: since most people tend to avoid risk, those who are brave enough to take risks are already one step ahead.


Q & A

I only make big business decisions if I know it will have a significant return on investment. Why should I invest in digital marketing?

That’s our philosophy too! But knowing is not enough. Having the tools to adjust your programs in real time is a great necessity. When you spend your marketing money efficiently and can see exactly how you are performing instantaneously, it will help you outspend your competitors. You won’t be guessing about what’s working and what’s not.


The Surefire Culture

Our Surefire team values company culture and we strive to make every member feel heard. About once a quarter, our executive team holds an “all hands meeting” to run through company updates and allow all employees to ask questions and give input on the progress that we’ve made. What are some ways that you facilitate your company culture?
