Guidelines to internet content based Entrepreneurship.

Image
Entrepreneurship, a term almost all of us are aware of. As per the Oxford dictionary, entrepreneurship can be defined as “the activity of making money by starting or running a business.” So, the idea of what this term is is pretty clear. A single fact throws much of what we think we understand about entrepreneurship into confusion: over 90% of successful entrepreneursmake less money than other people who perform similar tasks and similar responsibilities, even after ten years of running their business. For example, an entrepreneur who owns a restaurant will most likely make less money over ten years than a person who manages a restaurant of a comparable size. This leads to a curious paradox: Entrepreneurship, as a powerful engine of job creation, is an important economic activity, but economics can’t help us understand it—or even make sense of it. Entrepreneurship is first and foremost a social phenomenon, not an economic one. In my experience, most entrepreneurs are not motivated prima…

Best TIP i have ever gotten as a Waitress at Entrepreneurial Cafe.

How one entrepreneur learned to turn a no into a yes.I often reflect on how lucky I am to have been taught, early on, the two most valuable words in business: just ask. As an entrepreneur who felt in over my head and unqualified to take on the roles I did (and do), asking became my magic. And it’s damn addictive. Once I started to realize that asking leads to yes far more than it leads to no, it became a habit for me, fueled confidence, and led to self-fulfilling outcomes. One of my favorite “just ask” stories came early on when I was building my marketing and communications firm, Prosek Partners. We were in a high-profile competition for a new piece of business. We did so well in the first round that we were told, “You’re going to get it. You just have to pass muster with the founder.” The partner who delivered that news was named Andrew. He reinforced how impressed he was and how good the chemistry was between our teams. But unfortunately, at the meeting with the founder, we froze. He …

How to start and sustain a profitable business in your twenties

If you’re young, and you are entrepreneurial, your single greatest asset is your age. What they fail to tell you in school is that being “older” doesn’t necessarily make you “better.” What it makes you is different. When you’re older, you see things through a lens created through years and years of varying experiences. In your industry (and/or tangential industries), you’ve learned what works, what doesn’t work, what people want and what they don’t want. You know the rules of the game. You know how people operate. And above all, you know enough to where you don’t feel not defeated when someone says that scary word, “No.” Your 20s are meant for hustling. While your friends are enjoying “Sunday Funday” and going out on a Thursday night, you can be growing your own business and laying the foundation for your future success. Millennials and Gen Zers have an amazing opportunity at their fingertips. While our parents’ generation had to put in the time and work their way up the corporate ladder…

IS ENTREPRENEURSHIP A TALENT OR A SKILL.

Image
There are some skills which have always been debated to be inherent in a person’s nature like leadership, communication skills, confidence etc. Entrepreneurship is also one such debatable issue. One school of thought believes entrepreneurship has to be taught and learned in management schools by pursuing professional management courses. On the contrary, the other school of thought believes it to be inherent or genetic or by birth. They are of the opinion that business skills and entrepreneurship have to be in the blood.

You Need to Have the Vision to be an Entrepreneur By definition, entrepreneurship means setting up of a business unit and seeking profits while undertaking risks. Logically anyone who is willing to take risks after making some investment can be a businessman. Successful or not, is absolutely a different side of the story. It is all about having the vision to create value to a product or make a new product. Anuj Gupta, MD of NIFCO International says, “The idea of setting …

Travis Kalanick (Uber) resigns but still an Icon in the world of Entrepreneurship

Image
Who doesn’t know Uber? Uber became an instant hit from its very inception and the model has spread to many locations around the world. And the man behind Uber is the young entrepreneur Travis Kalanick. But once you take money from an investor, you cede some element of control. Travis Kalanick found that out over the past few weeks. He resigned as CEO of Uber Tuesday night, after being pressured by his board, which is made up primarily of his investors, including First Round Capital, Benchmark Capital, Lowercase Capital, Menlo Ventures, and Fidelity.
We can all imagine the pressure mounting, as allegations of sexual harassment from key executives became public, with added reports of a cutthroat culture that encourages sub-optimal behavior, and let’s not forget that the company continues to lose a ton of money every month. Just look around and ask any Uber driver this simple question, "What do you think about Uber and its policies, attitudes, and public image?" Yesterday, I aske…

Top Challenges facing Business Leaders in the 21st Century.

Image
When it comes to successful leadership, attributes like vision, communication, integrity, and curiosity never go out of style. Today, executives also must be able to build strong teams in the face of recruiting and retention challenges, keep up with the latest technology, and demonstrate strong business acumen. Those at the helm of their organizations need these skills, among others, to navigate the business environment, which recent research suggests is increasingly difficult to do. In a Robert Half Management Resources survey, 66 percent of chief financial officers (CFOs) said it’s more challenging to be a company leader today than it was five years ago. “Emerging trends, from the accelerated pace of change and disruptive innovations to dispersed workforces and regulatory compliance demands, have intensified the pressures facing company leaders,” said Paul McDonald, senior executive director for Robert Half. “Today’s leaders must be proficient in their chosen field, but also current o…
