In the last post I covered how to step into part-time entrepreneurship (Do You Want to be a Part-Time Entrepreneur) and now it’s time to cover how to manage the transitional period.

Those of you in the 9-5 rat race or main street job market are now questioning the security of that guaranteed paycheck. The burning question on your mind is, “Do I need to become a part-time entrepreneur?” Read the rest of this entry
Efficiency is the word of the month and should be a mainstay in your mind throughout this entire year. What exactly does it mean to be efficient? Being efficient means: achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense. As entrepreneurs, we must follow the exact meaning of this word in order to produce the success that we are chasing after along this entrepreneurial journey.

As the start of the year kicks off, many of us have set goals and objectives to be accomplished this year. What can first seem to be challenging new endeavors and tasks; quickly becomes boring and too difficult to stay focused on. That excitement and fresh enthusiasm we once possessed now turns into boredom due to lack of discipline and lack of real desire to succeed. Our journey towards our perceived greatness has now turned into mission impossible… Read the rest of this entry
As the year 2013 ends and the year 2014 enters, it is the time of year people usually reflect on their year as a whole.
