Blog Carnival of Entrpreneurship

Very busy times for me. Just back from travel. Cutting short my sleep. Missed my workouts. Must be busy. No concerns though, I will catch up on the weekend.

A few weeks ago I committed to host a Blog Carnival of Entrepreneurship on my CEO blog. For those of you unfamiliar with this concept, a blogger volunteers to accept submissions from writer. In my case on entrepreneurship. I then choose 6-8 of the ones I like and comment on them making sort of an online magazine.

It is not that easy to pick the right articles. I rejected the ones that were off topic, politcal, or purely self serving. I rejected those that were on slow servers. Hopefully this did not screen anyone with a temporary problem. Then I tried to choose a variety of topics of interest to entrepreneurs. My apology to the others who submitted that I was not able to use.

Entrepreneurship all starts with ideas. Nathan Waters gives you his ideas on how he comes up with ideas. For myself, I find the ideas are not the hard part, its implementing them.

Dominic Foster talks about the benefits of working at home. SOmeone should write a counter balance article talking about the challenges of working at home (not that I usually focus more on the challenges - see I can't even say problem).

Marcus Markou talks about the Art of Sales. Without sales, no business will thrive. We all need to learn more about how to sell.

Andy Trihn talks about "How to really do market research". Its obvious and simple but these are often the best ideas.

Kavit Haria talks about one of my favourite topics "Leadership". No entrepreneur can succeed without becoming a leader. No leader can truly succeed without growing, learning and studying leadership.

Dave Lorenzo talks about "Creativity and Strategic Thinking". Both critical to business success.

Marcus Marcou talks about how to get money from banks (legally). Entrepreneurs often worry about this and want to know how to do it. One philosophy I have had is growth within profitability. Sometimes the best bank is the business itself.

Becky McCray talks bout when it is the right time to expand a business. Of course, I am a big growth advocate. I think this is the best way to drive efficiencies painlessly.

Thanks for the link.

Definitely, a successful business generally involves 1% business idea and 99% execution.

But it's always nice to have a unique and highly potential idea as a foundation :D
