  2. Create room for experimentation in your current job.
  3. Begin experimentation: Use money from step 1 to experiment around, while working.

Making Worthwhile Connections

Making Worthwhile Connections

Great networking is not about the back-and-forth, it’s about giving without expectation of anything in return.

There are two basic ways to find great connections

  1. Find people with great future potential and help them in reaching their goals.
  2. Add some value to the life of someone who is already established or connect them to someone where a connection could create a win-win potential for both parties.

  • Sales are about knowing what a customer needs and, if you have a good solution/product, offering it.
  • Leadership is about being able to influence people, not control them.

Building Your Brand

Building Your Brand

Your brand is what people think about when they hear your name.

The problem is, most people don’t realize that they can do better than work under someone else's brand. They just need to take some steps and build it.

Entrepreneurial vs. Employee Mindset

Entrepreneurial vs. Employee Mindset

  • An entrepreneurial mindset focuses on contribution, outcome, and moves toward big decisions even without authority.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
