Why do people go into business for themselves? It’s not just a simple yearning to find freedom from an incompetent boss. It’s more than an opportunity to satisfy a dream. Today, it is the only way for innovators to get their due. In an age where technology and information is available to all people quickly and easily, entrepreneurs now have powers and capabilities equal to businesses many time their size. In fact, a company’s small size, simplicity and responsiveness is rapidly becoming a key competitive advantage. Why is this true? Because a trend towards ... (click to continue)

Wealth and influence is most strongly determined by abundant giving. The giver mindset is one of the biggest distinctions between people who create wealth and those who do not. They are givers before they ever become receivers. Success is all about how much more value you give to people than you take in payment. But there's another crucial element too ...

If you look at world-class companies, they have mastered the art of doing everything they do in such a way that all key functions are pretty much on autopilot. No matter how large the business grows, world-class companies can always produce a predictable result. They have everything tightly refined and automated. They are not constantly reinventing ...

Subject: How many separate revenue streams do you, or should you, have?

Ever been told to do something you are passionate about? Well, it doesn't quite work that way. Entrepreneurs who make it big find a place where they can create passion. Both for themselves and for others. They discover and establish a clear long-term (as well as short-term) picture of how they are going to change the world -- or their community -- or their industry in some significant way.

One of the things that has always struck me is how many businesses fail so shortly after their launch, and I have learned a very important insight. Most people who start a business begin with a product or service that they have invented or have a passion for. They then try to ... (click to continue)

Think about and evaluate your problem solving capacity and opportunities. In media interviews with self-made billionaires, there is one thing that consistently stands out.
