Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

FreedomPop has gained a name within the community of mobile carriers over the last couple of years thanks to their clever decision to buy data wholesale and shave off the savings for customers. The freemium phone plan has been rocketing in terms of subscribers and this has put them on the map in the USA. Now FreedomPop is aiming for a global expansion, as reported by Digital Trends. FreedomPop is an L.A. based start up that has made major waves in the past few years and now it appears that the United Kingdom will be reaping the benefits of one of their first freemium carriers in the country. Let’s take a look at how FreedomPop is planning their first steps into the UK.

CEO Stephen Seras and the rest of the crew at FreedomPop are starting a soft launch into the UK market with a SIM card based alpha testing program. Subscribers that are admitted to the program will be given access to the basic FreedomPop plan: 200 minutes, 200 texts, and 200 MB of data all completely free. These parameters are similar at their core to the most basic paid plans in the country. CEO Stephen Stokols once said that you “can’t beat free” and his words will be put to the test in the notoriously competitive UK marketplace. Right now COO Seras says that FreedomPop is aiming at a full launch with the hope of reaching one million customers within the next 18 months. While these goals are certainly ambitious, they aren’t remotely impossible.

FreedomPop is also launching the Jetsetter program which will be available for usage in 17 countries when completely launched. Jetsetter is an expansion upon the base FreedomPop mobile plan that allows for an additional 100 MB of roaming data. The plan is geared toward those that spent plenty of time on the road and traveling across Europe. The plan would enhance an area of need for people who want to take advantage of the free mobile network.

It isn’t all free plans at the FreedomPop table, however. For those that want to pay to expand to more fully functional plans those will be available. There is a $13 and $18 plan that sharply increases the amount of text, data, and talk as well as a $20 plan that allows users to use unlimited of everything. These numbers are competitive with even the most cost friendly carriers on the market.

What makes a business truly successful? When individuals in the business world are asked different answers are given. Some believe that it is the individual employees working as a collective that makes a business a success. It is believed by some that having a great product or service is key. Still others believe that the middle management of a company is what makes it great.

Although all of those answers are good, they are not the correct ones. In the end, a business cannot be a success without a competent person leading. There have been businesses that have gone from being an utter failure to a spectacular success because of the vision and drive of the person at the top. But what makes a successful leader? What are the tangible assets that make superior leadership a reality?

Experience can definitely be a key factor in a leader’s success. Many times, trial by fire can be a great teacher and can show not only potential weaknesses and strengths but demonstrate principles that can propel a business forward when acted upon. When this experience is combined with succinct knowledge in business development and strategies, it is usually a synergetic meeting of business expertise.

Executives that have an acquired knowledge of how businesses run and possess the experience time and time again of using that knowledge in the acquisition, management and growth of the business are a rare breed.
