rejuvenation
Memorial Day Weekend just recently passed, which means many people either vacationed, barbecued or simply rested for those three days. If you are an entrepreneur you might have skipped all of those things all together and just worked as if it was a regular day. If working was your main objective I believe you made a mistake. Why, you may ask. Are entrepreneurs not supposed to remain focused on their business and work harder than the average person? Yes, but even the hardest worker needs a break every so often.

step back
Entrepreneurship is the new cool thing to be attached to. It seems like almost everyone is intrigued with being an entrepreneur, which means being their own boss and directing their own lives. Realistically speaking though, is entrepreneurship for everyone? The obvious answer is no but due to the heightened focus being placed on the career path more people are being attracted to it than usual. Ask any battle tested entrepreneur about entrepreneurship and they will let you know that continuously working very hard is mandatory to succeed. Let’s be clear though, you can work hard day and night nonstop and never become a successful entrepreneur. When this happens do you keep fighting or is it time to say goodbye and move on?

potential
Nearly all of us say that we want to be the best that we can be and achieve great things. In reality though, the majority of us rarely do so. It is said that you can do whatever you want to do as long as you put your mind to it; the problem is that such a statement seems like wishful thinking when most try to apply the notion. Just as it is said we all have the potential to be great but can that opinion be truthful for all of us? Read More Are You Living Up to Your Potential?

2012

The year of 2012 seemed to be a year that had a lot of great promise but sharply fell flat in delivering any generous returns on such promises. Our so-called leaders have increased their bickering and unwillingness to compromise, it seems the citizens of this country have gone mad and our push towards stability and progressive growth has stalled. Going into 2013 looks like the bad we were in is only going to get worst. That in itself is a very scary thought to ponder. Read More An Examination of 2012

value

The marketplace in which many businesses operate within has become fiercely competitive due to the decreased consumption patterns of consumers. As consumers become more hesitant about how their money is spent businesses likewise mimic the same behavioral patterns. The problem with this though is that businesses cannot operate in this manner because it does not resonate well with consumers. As a business you operate in order to make a profit; consumers consume in order to satisfy specific needs and wants. If consumers feel that they are being given low quality products and services they transition their consuming patterns elsewhere. Businesses on the other hand cannot just reposition their consumer base instantly without suffering numerous setbacks which can be very costly. This means that businesses must truly create value for their consumers especially during these challenging times in order to remain competitive amongst the varying options competitors present to consumers.

business process

Business is a process that involves many different variables that all combine to formulate into an operating organization. Variables are the components which help to add substance to the overall picture by connecting the many dots that are necessary for efficient processing. Many people make the mistake of thinking business is a straight-forward act that moves from idea to acceptation without having any important in-between destinations. Not recognizing the importance of strategic planning and the execution of correlating initiatives that create the opportunity for success severely limits the chances of seeing progressive development. You see, the idea is just the beginning stage and not necessarily the most important element within the process. The initiatives that lead to the execution of the proposed idea is what truly matters and is what sets successful businesses apart from dreamers and wishers. Read More The Business Process

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.
