Have you ever been online or on Facebook and someone asks a question of you and you have this SMH (Smack My Head) moment and wonder: “You mean with the best search engine in the world, Google, and you want ME to look it up for you?”
I now use LMGTFY = Let Me Google That For You when I’m online and they always ask, “What’s that?”
You might find this blog post about entrepreneurship different, but it needs to be discussed, because entrepreneurship is about life and all that it means to each of us.
As entrepreneurs, we face challenges throughout our days, some are simple, some are critical, and others like today’s terrorist event tasks our very nature as human beings. But something like today should not be taken lightly, both as individuals and as a nation. We must face the event head on and not hide our heads under our pillows, just as any entrepreneur does when faced with uncertainty about their business.
I have been doing a lot of behind the scenes changes, not only about my blog, but more importantly about the content of my blog. I have been reading a lot of information and historical information for a revision of my book. I have read eight books in the last four months as well as being involved in a number of issues that affect both me and you, especially in Colorado. Getting to the simple issues that make your and my life better. Hence so little has been done with my blog of late. But, never one for the loss of an idea, here’s one that just might strike a nerve, or at least I hope it does, because it did me.
Seeing what was good in history to seeing a current situation as bad and wanting to change back to the “good ol’ days” is a lot or change, once you realize that the current good is really bad. But change only takes one step at a time. Watch Ron Finley as he shows how simple change can be.
My friend Thomas Frey has written a new piece that it titled “2 Billion Jobs to Disappear by 2030” and goes into what is changing in the coming years.
Here’s the take away:
I recently saw a millionaire marketer’s post that said:
My friend has this great saying:
“The time you want the map … is before you enter the woods.”
The lesson is basic:
Before you embark on any journey, know in advance how to get where you want to go.
A few years ago I found a comment by a millionaire that at first I thought was a great idea, how do you define what a CEO is and does?
Not a bad question, right? Especially when it comes to being a startup.
Normally the CEO moniker, Chief Executive Officer, used in big Fortune 500 companies and even some startups that want the same prestige might work, but as a startup, it just doesn’t quite fit, do you see the same thing?
I have a friend that has a startup and she uses the CEO title on her business card and her web site. She’s a startup. But seeing it on her card it just sounds so old fashion and stuffy, as if “bestowed” by oneself for others to see how you want to project your image. But is that the true focus of a business? To make yourself look good?
Not so accurate.
So, here’s my attempt in our current business climate to get to the heart of what a business CEO title is about.
I can’t make this up, but it’s gold to entrepreneurs. A quick way to test out an idea from an objective source over coffee.
Snooty Monkey’s The $20 Starbucks Test.
I loved the idea.
