    Enneagram Test: What are you?

    Yes, 8s are considered to be "natural" entrepreneurs. Insightful and decisive and able to get stuff done. But that doesn't mean other types can't be successful entrepreneurs. Bill Gates is considered to be a 5, for example.

    Enneagram Test: What are you?

    I'd be willing to bet you are an ENTJ (commander) who is maybe just a little more E than I. The E/I is binary, so doesn't really give a really nuanced reading. I read somewhere that true INTJs (architects) always test INTJ and never anything else. So if you sometimes test INTJ and sometimes...

    Enneagram Test: What are you?

    5w6 The Enneagram has a strange and fascinating backstory. Desert fathers and the 7 deadly sins, Suffi mysticism, the occult, some "spiritual seeker" guy who brought it from Afghanistan in the early 20th century, some Chilean doctor in the 60s, Jesuits in Chicago in the 70s, etc. Seriously...

    O/T: HEALTH Improving my sleep

    This is a great tip. I find "light reading" before bed to be very relaxing. It actually doesn't need to be light at all. I typically read history. It helps me disengage my mind from the day's and tomorrow's challenges. The key is that it has nothing to do with my day to day life or business...

    Once again, the workforce did not let me down

    You get what you expect. I bet both guys picked up on your expectations and decided it wasn't worth their time.

    GOLD! Moved to Scottsdale, Growing a Web Design Firm

    Run with this insight and don't look back! I've skimmed these recent posts and I don't represent you and you need to talk to your own attorney blah blah blah ... but I am a former commercial litigator. Never underestimate the amount of time, money, and frustration litigation costs. Getting to...

    I got written up today , but wish they had fired me.

    Make a decision and take responsibility NOW. Why wait a few years? Re-read the title of your post. You wish THEY had fired YOU? That's giving someone else control over your life and wishing they would make a decision for you because you can't make it for yourself. Fire yourself. Make the...

    Are business/self-help books a waste of time?

    So many great points in this thread! Here are a few of my thoughts: 1. True, if you aren't acting on anything you are reading, you are wasting your time. 2. But it doesn't need to be either/or, either reading or acting. I think audiobooks are so helpful in this regard. It probably doesn't...

    Lol. Sorry for offending you. I thought the article was interesting and that others might like to read it. Didn't realize I was posting in a @JScott reviewed scientific journal.

    How To Prevent Clients From STEALING My Workers?

    Non-solicit with penalty in contract with company. Narrowly tailored non-compete in contract with contractor. The cross-border thing is interesting. You'd probably want to just go with US law (go with New York or Delaware) if you are going to try to enforce them in the US. But, at the end of...

    Can Copy and Marketing Look "Too Scammy"?

    Start with your offer. If your offer is truly helpful to your target market, you are doing them a disservice by not selling effectively. Effective selling can be low key or hard sell. As @Bekit suggests, just test. And if your product is truly helpful and your target audience responds to...

    O/T: HEALTH My 11 year old was diagnosed with autism yesterday

    Check out Brain Balance and the work of Dr. Robert Melilo. He has had great success with some kids with autism. He is a very controversial figure. He thinks he's figured out a way to truly help kids with autism (and related disorders). Reviews of his work and Brain Balance centers are a...
