    Matsushita Leadership

    I just finished reading this one and I highly recommend it! At first I must admit I was not really into studying up on Matsushita (Panasonic, Sanyo, National brands) as it was such a massive company (it dwarfed Sony) that I had it in my head it was started by some sort of venture capital, or...

    Entrepreneurship comes with great sacrifices...

    Such a great list! For me its been a long learning process, mostly from failure. I made all kinds of mistakes in the beginning from hiring the wrong people, partnering with the wrong people, not focusing on sales and marketing, not having a good enough product, but the best lessons were not...

    If You Are Hiring A Web Designer, What Would You Be Looking For?

    Ii kinda depends on what type of project. I like to find people that have good design sense as well as a good feel for UX. Depending on the site, UX can be more or less important, it really depends how the site is being used. If its just to have a web presence, then it doesn't matter as much...

    Any advice on what makes a good bizness name?

    Short names are good and thinking about the domain is also a good idea. There are certain cases where your own name can be a good name. If you are an artist for example. But it depends on the business. I use a spreadsheet and just plug names into it for several weeks. I then sort the ones I...

    Anyone read The Education of Millionaires?

    I have read it, just finished it last week. I enjoyed it and I think it was well written. I'd say its a great paradigm shifting book with some good references for beginners looking to learn more about internet marketing and the right way to approach the new internet economy as opposed to the...

    Is it BS? E-myth, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert G. Allen, 4-Hour WW

    One of my friends from college read the E-Myth, and also signed up for the mentoring courses which cost a pretty penny. He knew nothing about business, as we both went to college for 3D Animation back in the 90s, and that was our career path for a while. He created a startup that now...

    Do you consider yourself AD(H)D ?

    I definitely have it but only after I started my business pursuits, before that I had really good focusing ability. I think its a re-wiring of the brain. But Im not complaining, if you channel it, its definitely an advantage I think (un-channeled its perhaps a disaster of no productivity.) -Ty
