By you writing a book on your niche, your customers will come running to you as you will now be seen as knowledgeable about your business area.

2: Higher Credibility: Once you write a book it makes you trust worthy in the eyes of your customers. People buy from people they trust and you will be seen as a person someone will spend their money on once you have a book. Because of your book and information people would love to do business with you one on one or online. A book sets you apart from the non-author colleagues in your field.

On the next paralyzing problem, ask: "Would I rather have the solution or the problem?"  Possibilities and action plans will emerge.

One of the greatest marketing tools that Facebook has provided especially for businesses is the Facebook Page (previously called the Fan Page). Facebook Pages are completely different than Personal Facebook Profiles.

Facebook pages are just amazing. You have an array of wonderful tools which you can use to create a wonderful and highly engaging webpage. Facebook knows what businesses and Internet marketers want. That’s why they provide as many marketing tools as possible called apps to help you reach your marketing goals.

Hello,

I need some help! I'm trying to get a better feel for what the lives of other entrepreneurs look like. If you have time, can you answer these 4 questions please? They don't have to be long answers (unless you want to). Thanks guys!

What does a typical day look like for you?
What does it mean to be successful as an entrepreneur?
What are your biggest challenges?
What publications or blogs do you read?

well i agree with jay a typical day varies from person to person, my goal as designer was to be my own man, so i work from home wake up 5am  see the family off, then i settle down to emails, see what work's come in.... that starts my day. i try not to make calls in the morning since thats my most creative part of the day. afternoons i spend communicating with clients or finishing their work.  by 4pm the family start showing up so i take a break if i have no tight deadlines. i can put in another 2 to 3 hours from 9pm. Thats the blue print, it doesn't always work out like that but its close. am trying to create time to read blogs and maybe even post some

As the boss you only have to answer to yourself. So, you ought to ask questions, answer them, and pay attention to the dialog. #entrepreneur

Hello!

I wanted to share something with everyone here in this community.

We're all looking for ways to become happier and more productive, right? It's what makes us who we are!

A long time ago, I learned about the importance of gratitude and the impact it can have on your life. As a result, I began keeping a gratitude journal.

A little over a month ago, I decided to take it a step further. I decided to go on my own "Personal 30-Day Gratitude Challenge." I wrote a post about it on LinkedIn.

Every day for 30 days, I would express true, heartfelt gratitude to at least one person per day. I did this by email and I focused mainly on my co-workers. 

The impact was so powerful.

I shared the results of this challenge recently in a follow-up post on LinkedIn. I thought I'd share this post with you all because you're entrepreneurs just like me. We have different types of businesses, but we share a lot of the same struggles: the emotional rollercoaster, the struggle to stay motivated, trying desperately to be productive. 

I fully believe that gratitude is the way to make all of these things easier and more bearable for us. I'd encourage you to read the article. Even more than that, I'd also challenge everyone here to do their own gratitude challenge. It doesn't have to be 30 days. Try it for a week and see how much of a difference it makes. 

You don't even have to do it by email. Use whatever medium suits you. I'd be interested in hearing or reading your thoughts. Thanks!

Many of our office tenants that are small business owners and entrepreneurs rarely drive their car to the office, but instead take public transportation. So we wanted to take a poll of those in this Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business community
who work in the downtown core of their city and see what type of commute they take.
How do you get to your downtown office?

I opened my practice right out of school 33 years ago. Some say it was easier then. For many reasons, I disagree. #LawSchool #entrepreneur

Starting a Tech Startup with No Skills. Which One Do You Learn First? 

Someone on Quora asked:

If you were starting a technology startup and you have no skills, would you learn sales, design, or programming first?

If not those 3 avenues, what would you learn first? Then second?

This was my response:

When I was 22, I tried to make my own single founder startup. I failed, horribly.

I learned, from that experience, that in order to make it in life, you can never do things alone. So instead, I picked one skills to put my sole emphasis into to becoming the best I could be at it.

I already had learned sales, so that really wasn’t an issue for me to figure out. I even gradually learned how to train and duplicate sales people, so that was no big deal. What I put my emphasis into learning was marketing.

I know the basics to photoshop, which is all I need to know for design. I don’t know anything at all about coding, which is really bad, since I should at least know the basics.

Instead of learning all three, what I found was the best thing to do was to find and source out partners, or cofounders who have these skills, so we can all leverage off each other’s strengths, instead of trying to handle everything ourselves, which will end up becoming a huge cluster of madness.

I’m still in the process of searching for a programmer who understands that I’m able to penetrate the market efficiently, as I’ve created a pretty decent strategy as it is. It’s tough to find, but eventually someone will send me a message and we’ll be working together.

From there, who knows. Maybe things just may click together!
