Street vendors selling deep-fried insects as snacks are a familiar sight in Bangkok, but a Thai entrepreneur is trying to give edible bugs a more upmarket appeal. Panitan Tongsiri will launch his “HiSo”, short for high-society, brand of seasoned insect snacks in March and plans to stock them at gourmet food markets around the Thai capital.

+Taylor Jackson says he just wanted to make his friends look cool. “Then everybody started to grow up, get real jobs and get married,” he says. That’s when he turned his hobby – taking pictures of bands and snowboarders – into a wedding #photography business. The Kitchener-area resident says he first started using Photoshop at age 12. Two years later, he’d started making snowboard videos. http://tgam.ca/EITf

Gamification of everyday life is increasingly prevalent and permeates far beyond the realm of physical health and fitness routines. Now we’re actively tracking and gamifying their emotion. Trend Hunter's consumer insights research has labelled this phenomenon ‘automated emotion.’

Trusts have a long history going back to medieval times when landowners placed their property in trust while away fighting wars. But the modern trust has developed into an indispensable tool for tax and estate planning.
Trusts are commonly used for succession planning for private companies when the owner wants the next generation to take over. Estate freezes allow owners to lock in the current value of the company with preferred shares, while a separate class of shares owned by a family trust will have the future value.

Kitchener, Ont.-based +Clearpath Robotics  has engineered a fleet of heavy-duty yellow and black robots that fit comfortably between the look of a Tonka truck and the character in Pixar’s “Wall-E.” Some of the robots are equipped to travel across the ground, while others are made for aerial and aquatic operations. http://tgam.ca/EIPd

Entrepreneurs may be all smiles when they get an offer on ABC's +Shark Tank but the deals aren’t set in stone. Negotiations start soon after episodes are taped. Contestants can walk away if they don’t like the terms. http://tgam.ca/EITp

"Two years ago I quit my own business to work for someone else, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made," writes Brandon Turner of +BiggerPockets in this article from +Entrepreneur

Between his rental properties and growing real estate investing blog, he had built up enough semi-passive cash flow to pay the bills. He was financially free. Only … he wasn’t free. http://tgam.ca/EITe

Unstructured advising can be dangerous. Ultimately, your co-founders, investors, employees, and customers are counting on you to grow your business – not someone else’s. You need to find the right balance between building and advising. +YEC +Magoosh +Modify Watches 
Entrepreneurs love to give back and advise their peers. But how do you make sure the “help” you’re offering is effective – and not a drag on your own productivity?

Before Vick Yau could even print his business cards, there were orders coming in for his company's product: an interior door that provides both ventilation and acoustic separation. Mr. Yau, co-founder of VanAir Design, had the designs and materials needed to bring the company’s product to life, but costs were high and the production timetable was slow. http://tgam.ca/EIPR
