What Would You Do If You Were Not Afraid?

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” ― Thomas A. Edison Failure is often painful, grueling and leaves you with an after taste feeling that makes you wonder why you should bother trying again. Most of us cannot like Edison endure 10,000 ways that won’t work. We are barely able to pick up ourselves up after rejection or embarrassment. Failing put simply is not meeting expectations. The problem is that everyone with a mind has expectations. Whether you like it or not you are failing…

Left or Right-Automation for the Third World

Why reverse innovation is a must for Africa There is a silly cartoon and I’ll admit I enjoy watching them from time to time because of how simply and crudely they represent the hardest things in our lives.

Why ‘Mindblindness’ is Killing Your Business

beyond numbers are people we call customers Mindblindness in an extreme is often attributed to autism or Asperger syndrome. But in some form, most business owners suffer from it too.

I started questioned why I had decided before trying it, and it took down a path of question what else I had talked myself out off We are all familiar with the saying “never say never” but actually we say never all the time!

WHY AN ENTREPRENEUR SHOULD BELONG TO A GROUP

It is said “If you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go together.” in the startup world, I look at it from another perspective; “if you want your startup to die sooner than predicted, run it alone. But if you want to build an empire to last generations, carry along others”. It’s super important that an entrepreneur belongs to a community of fellow entrepreneurs.
