Do you think entrepreneurs can be organized into 'types', or do you think it's most a blending of various kinds? 
Being honest with yourself about the type of entrepreneur you are and want to be can be instrumental in determining how to grow your business.

In the outreach world I've done phone books, flyers, valpack coupons, canvassing, PPC...   you name it.  The thing working well for me right now is radio.  What's your best outreach?
 
Okay it's new commercial time.   I think they make them sound pretty good.  What do you think?     #throughglass

Over 1 billion local searches are done online every month. This number grows by more than 50% each year. 83% of consumers search online before making a purchase. This type of search is prefered over the Yellow Pages or a newspaper. That's why you need to be online in an effective way.

Organic listings on Google receive 90% of clicks so being on the first page of a search is key to being effective. What our company does is customize short videos to reach the first page of Google for businesses. You want to be different, you want to stand out. Don't be afraid to hire someone to handle your marketing for you if you don't have the time. Just a few tips: write a blog, create videos for your website, have your site be user friendly, create an email list, test and track your main pages to see what is working and what's not.

A good if not controversial study in which the well regarded Forrester Research absolutely decimates Facebook and recommends against paid ad buys as a waste of money. Though dated 2013, it remains relevant maybe even more so now in light of ongoing problems with fraudulent fake profiles and clicks. Not to mention FB's acknowledgment they are pushing down organic content to force booster ad sales.

Just the idea that you have to pay to get visitors - and then pay again to get content seems wrong on the face of it alone the risk that precious ad budges for a tiny business are pretty going down the toilet makes us really apprehensive about FB. Love to hear your thoughts and experiences if you've used their ads. We'd love to reach more readers but so far we've seen no evidence that media channel works.

A Forrester research report on Facebook ads recently started a huge internet spat. But everyone missed the simple, very obvious truth.

DO IT NOW TO SUCCEED

We procrastinate because....
We are not prepared.
We see something as being unpleasant, difficult or boring.
We don't feel the problem is squeaking loudly enough yet.
We don't have enough time to do it now.
We allow other people to talk us into procrastinating.

But we can overcome it by...
Planning ahead.
Making things creative or fun.
Using preventive maintenance before the squeaking begins.
Take advantage of small bits of time.
Be decisive.

To succeed, you must take ....

A - ATTACK the problems or obstacles that stand between you and your goals. Take the initiative.
C - CREATE opportunities. An ancient Chinese proverb says: "One who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait very, very long time."
T - TOGETHERNESS turns the impossible into the possible. The total of an outstanding team is greater than its individual parts.
I - INSTILL a burning desire. Success is almost always dependent upon desire, drive and persistence.
O - OVERCOME adversity. You cannot become a true winner unless you can overcome adversity. The process makes you stronger.
N - NOW is the time to act. Putting off things destroys individuals and teams.

So when do you start? TODAY
T - Take hold of today,
O - Overcoming adversity and
D - Dedicating yourself to a winning
A - Attitude that will carry
Y - You to the top!

You must adopt the DO IT NOW attitude to succeed.

Do any you work at home and have cats? what about those of you who run small offices? Would you be willing to try this approach to #stressrelief ?  :-)
The Ferray Corporation, in Tokyo, Japan, has filled its office with cats, to make the work space more relaxing for its employees. The felines are free to roam the premises as they please.

I hope that technology will enable more people to follow their interests and create something for other people 

"Automation certainly won’t mean the death of human work. In the best of all possible worlds, it will mean an end to work that is unfulfilling.

For some that would mean time spent creating and inventing, for others that might mean a lot of time spent playing with all those new creations and inventions.

Additionally, technology will only accelerate our capacity to pursue diverse of interests. The Internet has already democratized information, allowing many to become experts in fields in which they have no formal education or training. The future of technology may allow for each of us to become masters in many fields, expanding the abilities of our bodies and our minds.

The developments and innovations produced by passion, and aided by technology, have stretched the imagination. From the realization of many concepts formerly considered science fiction, to the creation of new forms of art, we already stand in awe of what passion and innovation can achieve.

Just imagine a world where that output is expanded exponentially."

My sales guy thought for the day....
 
Okay my thought for the day....   No one learns anything while their mouth is open.   If you're talking, you're not listening.   People want to be heard and valued and have their words matter just as much as you want your words to be heard and valued and matter.  
~
You receive only what you give as far as consideration and grace.  
~
I'm in sales and sometimes I wonder why people buy from me.  (No, I'm not trying to sell you anything,  you can relax.)
~
I guess at some point I learned that usually what I was about to say, I already knew; and what the other person was saying could potentially change me for the better.
~
If you agree with my thoughts....   will you share them?

Gartner called them a “perennial supply chain powerhouse”. Distribution practices and technology are only some Walmart strategies. Have a look at http://goo.gl/JbFqzS 
Walmart’s keys to successful supply chain management were concentrated on developing a highly structured inventory management system and advanced supply chain strategy.

One I wrote a while back on ten steps to a sale.  This is the building block of all sales and most specifically home improvement sales.  It's a little burly but well explained.   There is indeed a reason for everything in this world.

How to use Hashtags for Events & Promotions

If you use Twitter, you will notice tweets that include a #Hashtag. Twitter users created this as a way to group Twitter messages together based on a particular subject or topic.Particularly, when you are trying to promote an event such as a conference or award show, this is a great way to engage your event attendees.

How Do I Find Good Technical Cofounders?

It’s pretty simple.  You do some research on them then reach out to them by sending them a message.

This is what I would say.

Hi ____,

My name is Leonard.  I don’t have an original idea. I don’t even have a LLC or C Corp. I want to give you some imaginary % of my nonexistent company. I have about $200 in the bank. I have a proven track record of failing at startups. I have a limited knowledge of many industries. I don’t have a prototype or anything like that. I played a key role at now-dead startups.  I have a rolodex of, oh wait, never mind.  These are candies called Rolo.  I am worshipped in my field as a loser.

I have nothing, not even nothing yet.  However, I have a heart to offer.  See, I can draw it here.

<3

Would you like to be my technical cofounder?

Yours Respectfully,

Leonard Kim

Then maybe you want to post some documentation on what you’re actually good at as attachments, like what is specifically in the red boxes. [images in post]

Hopefully, you have a lot more to offer than I do though.  Otherwise, they may not want to partner up with you…

P.S.  I’m available and my inbox is open for serious inquiries.

How do you define 'Entrepreneur'? Do you agree with this article? 
Distinguishing between entrepreneurs and 'wantrepreneurs' isn't helpful, especially when you look at the very real impact small and micro-sized businesses have on the U.S. economy.

+Rebecca Quinn i think you are correct that people who don't answer moderator requests are becoming a problem here.  Perhaps we should start using that "ban" button more - not permanently, but if they don't even acknowledge our existence  then they should have to write us to request reinstatement
