Seth Godin Quote...

This is one of my favorite quotes from Seth Godin (from the book "Free Prize Inside").


"Satisfied businesspeople (and non-businesspeople, for that matter) are happy because they're actually doing something. They're building and creating and designing and leading and shaping and making something come to life."
Seth Godin, "Free Prize Inside"

Are you really cut out to be an entrepreneur?






















Great article on Virgin.com by Natelie Clarkson. 
"Are you really cut out to be an entrepreneur?"

Highlights from the article:

  • 67% of millennials said their goals involve launching a business (respondents in a recent Bentley University).
  • Clearer Thinking (a non-profit that develops decision-making tools) has launched a free test designed to help would-be start-up founders to better understand if they have the skills and personality traits required to make their start-up idea a success. The test is fairly comprehensive and rather insightful.
  • Stamina is a critical characteristic for successful entrepreneurs.
  • Successful business founders also have two intertwined characteristics: a relentless pursuit of success and a simultaneous ability to learn from feedback.
