100 Day Challenge: September 8th to December 17
Summer's almost over entrepreneurs-  time to get our asses in gear.    This year, we are repeating our "100 Day Challenge" where we state publicly what we intend to accomplish in the next 100 days - whether in our business or personal lives, and then do our best to make it happen. 

When we did this last year, we waited until there were exactly 100 days left in the year,and then announced it just a few days before.   There were a few problems with this: first, it didn't give people enough time to think about their 100 day plan, and second, nothing really gets done in the last few weeks of the year anyway, so we were really giving ourselves less than 100 days.

This year,  we are putting a little padding into the system.   The challenge won't begin until next Tuesday, September 8th (the day after Labor Day in the U.S. - generally recognized as the end of Summer) and will conclude December 17 - one week before Christmas Eve.    So for all practical purposes, this is the same as asking "What do you intend to accomplish in the remainder of 2015?

 Lots of things can happen in 100 days.  Napoleon, escaped from his prison on Elba, assembled an army, marched to Paris and recaptured the French government in less than 100 days.   During President Roosevelt's first 100 days in office he reformed the American banking systems and took the first steps to end the great depression.   Einstein came up with his special theory of relativity in less than 100 days while working in the Swiss Patent Office and having to hide his work from his boss so he wouldn't get caught.  

If all these great things can happen in 100 days, then surely our little companies and ventures can make significant progress in 100 days.  

The rules are simple - there are no rules.  This can be a goal you wish to accomplish, a habit you would like to break or make, an activity you would like to do on a consistent basis - whatever.  Just tell us what you intend to accomplish in 100 days the comments here, and commit that you really are going to try.  

I have been told that best results for challenges like this is to just have one major objective, have it be as specific as possible and do it every day if possible.   I think I am going to have two or three though, which I will post shortly - so someone else can start.   If you are not quite ready yet you have almost a week to think about it, but let us know as soon as you can.  

What would you like to get done (or do consistently)  in this 100 days?

As you’re juggling your MBA & a full-time job, it’s crucial to gain control over how you divvy up your time to ensure your performance doesn’t suffer in either area. Do you think an #MBATopUp  programme can help you in this genre?
You need an online MBA because of the present situation of the job market. It demands high quality professional skills from the employees. Though you are employed, your advancement of educational qualification ensures your professional stability.

Hi everybody,
here is a nice extension called 'G+ Community Meter' to help with your social media marketing strategy: as entrepreneurs, you may need to create a community for your business and the extension will help you learn how to interact with members. You can also monitor your competitors' communities' activity. I used it and gathered some facts about your activity in August: 16 active members wrote a total of 14 posts that generated 90 +1's and 7 comments!
And +Business Support Network  was the top contributor, congrats'!
I hope it helps with your strategy.

Hi to All,

I am providing remote services for Ms.Excel / Ms.Access VBA Macros Programming based business solutions. Applications created in Ms.Excel and Access are easily deployed to client side due to portability, and most of the PC's now a days have Ms.Office installed. Unlike large enterprise business software, modifications are easy to handle and re-deploying.

Feel free to contact me for business solutions.

Welcome to the community +Freeman Harris Solicitors! I agree that this topic is very important and every business owner should be aware of the regulations. That said, the laws and processes vary between countries so people should check where they live.

Our proofreader asked us "how do small business owner adapt to evolving technologies?"  So we thought we should ask members of this small business community with a poll.

Internet marketing certainly for a lot of small businesses and they tend not to use all the free resources out there. From a franchising/licencing background I love outsourcing to save overhead costs, improve efficiency so I would also say this is worth including if the business can be structured this way
