Is it possible to travel towards a destination without having knowledge of where you are going? Not really. It would be very difficult to navigate when you are unaware of your surroundings and unsure of how to exactly move forward. If we were to examine the majority of people in the world today we would see that they have no sense of vision; no sure answer to the direction in which their life is headed. These are the people who constantly complain about the status of their life but offer up no solutions of their own in order to change their current predicament. They have no idea where their future is headed, they just know that the present is not working in their favor. Can this description be used to describe your entrepreneurial journey/ your life? Are you the entrepreneur/ person without a vision? Read More Why a Vision is Needed

Being an entrepreneur is the latest hot trend amongst people entering or currently in the stagnate job market. Entrepreneurship is seen as the gateway to freedom, better finances and an overall more rewarding form of work. People associate entrepreneurship with flexibility and the ability to produce exponential riches, which fuels the elevated interest in pursuing its path. Unfortunately though, the reality of such successes are small compared to the relative average existence that a majority of entrepreneurs experience. This fad though is being fed off the perception that following in the path of entrepreneurship will make you instantly rich and enable you to live the lifestyle of Richard Branson or P. Diddy. That is why when things get tougher than expected and the lifestyle becomes more consuming than expected; people bail out with the quickness. Read More Are You Experiencing the Entrepreneur Fad?

Have you noticed that when you try to do something all at once you usually fail? You are so determined to do everything at the same time causing yourself to waste more time rather than being productive with your time. You are operating in a blur rather than streamlining your actions in an efficient manner which allows you to actually perform well. Maybe it is due to the instant society we live within that makes us believe everything has to come about in an instant manner. The results of having such a mindset though has revealed that instant satisfaction almost certainly brings with it instant failure. Read More Why a Strategy is Important

In the world there are two distinctive groups of people: those who take action and those who just talk. The group labeled the talkers is what dominates the world and is what creates the great divide we see in the world today. What is this divide exactly? The divide I speak of is the separation of those living life and those just existing in life. Living meaning that you are experiencing life with full potential; not having to question what could have been. Existing meaning that life passes you by and you constantly wonder what it feels like to take a risk. Are you the later of the two? Are you constantly worried about what if that you steer clear of doing anything that is not of the norm for you? Read More Stop Contemplating On Pursuing the Idea

Knowledge and education; are they not one in the same? Many will say yes; I on the other hand say no. Lets reference to dictionary.com in order to establish the definition of the two words. Education is defined as: the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgement, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life. Knowledge is defined as: acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation; general erudition: knowledge of many things. Just by reading over the two definitions it is clear that knowledge goes beyond education. This would then explain as to why so many educated people seem so unknowledgeable about the “real” world.

If you have been watching the news lately and listening to different indications on where the economy is, you can most likely come to one conclusion. It sucks! And it is sucking the enjoyment of life right out of many people. The Great Recession happened almost four years ago but what must be remembered is that it was a disaster in the making that developed over a long period of time. The joyous period prior to our current status seems to be over for most and now the realization of “what next” begins to resonate. What usually happens when people have the time to pity in their woes is depression, better known as the inability to move forward. Read More Is the Recession Causing You Depression?

Lately I have been noticing that some opposing players within what I call the thought leaders of the entrepreneurial community have been stifling others that they view as competitors. I say this because it seems like they do not like others sharing their own knowledge and information to what they view as “their audience”. Instead of letting the audience hear ideas and produce conversation from varying perspectives, they block out anyone promoting theories opposing their own. Maybe they fear those they view as considerable competition, maybe they want the audience to focus only on what they have to offer; whatever the reason it pushes me to want to strategically outwit them at their game of checkers by playing a masterful game of chess.
