How to Nip Procrastination in the Bud Once and for All

How to Nip Procrastination in the Bud Once and for All | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Ironically, procrastination is a problem that we all seem to put off dealing with. Many people will keep putting off their obligations for as long as they can, even if they are fully aware that their lives would be so much easier, if only they were able to do everything they want to do on time.


Procrastination is something that affects people of all ages. Many college students put off studying for an exam or writing a paper for as long as they can, and then they have to pull a ridiculous all-nighter to compensate...

Entrepreneur – Do You Want To Change The World?

Entrepreneur – Do You Want To Change The World? | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Entrepreneurs come in all shapes and sizes and are driven by a wide range of objectives. As I’ve written elsewhere, the emotional reasons for becoming an entrepreneur range from fulfilling basic survival needs to seeking feelings related to esteem, meaning and self-actualization needs. While there are no hard and fast rules on this, many of the greatest entrepreneurs did not get started seeking fame and fortune; rather, they wanted to change the world.

 

I never wanted to be a businessman; I just wanted to change the world. Richard Branson

How to Write a High-Quality eBook in 30 Days

How to Write a High-Quality eBook in 30 Days | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

What if, 30 days from now, you had a finished, well-crafted eBook sitting on your hard drive, ready to distribute and sell?

 

That might sound next-to-impossible to you, but it’s not.

 

Every November, over 200,000 people worldwide take part in NaNoWriMo — “(inter)National Novel Writing Month”. NaNoWriMo participants aim to write 50,000 words during the month, and tens of thousands of them manage to do it.

 

If those writers can do that, you can write a 20,000 word ebook in a month.

 

And I am absolutely not talking about some scrappy, thrown-together document. You’ll have more than enough time to properly plan, organize, and edit your eBook as well...

How to Create a Million-Dollar Business This Weekend (Examples: AppSumo, Mint, Chihuahuas)

How to Create a Million-Dollar Business This Weekend (Examples: AppSumo, Mint, Chihuahuas) | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it
Noah Kagan built two multi-million dollar online businesses before turning 28. He also looks great in orange.

 

I first met Noah Kagan over rain and strong espressos at Red Rock Coffee in Mountain View, CA. It was 2007. We were both in hoodies, had a shared penchant for the F-bomb and burritos, all of which led to a caffeine-infused mindmeld.

 

It would be the first of many.

 

The matchmaker then introducing us was the prophetic and profane Dave McClure, General Partner of 500 Start-ups, which is now headquartered just down the street from Red Rock.

 

Mr. Noah has quite the start-up resume.

 

He was employee #30 at Facebook, #4 at Mint, had previously worked for Intel (where he frequently took naps under his desk), and had turned down a six-figure offer from Yahoo. Since we first met, Noah’s helped create Gambit, an online gaming payment platform and a multi-million dollar business; and AppSumo, loved by entrepreneurs and moms everywhere. He also helped pour fire on both the 4-Hour Workweek and 4-Hour Body launches...

The Best Decision You Can Make for Your Business -- That Has Nothing to do With Money

The Best Decision You Can Make for Your Business -- That Has Nothing to do With Money | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Imagine two people starting identical companies with the exact same resources, network, and time at their disposal (gender randomly assigned for brevity’s sake):


Person #1 wakes up every day with anxiety, stressed about his mounting to-do list. He immediately buries himself in reactive work — striving to please everyone else but himself by responding to emails, taking meetings and delivering what others ask of him. He gets whipped around by his moods — one minute he’s happy and excited, the next he’s tired, anxious, unmotivated and depressed. His productivity on any given day is completely unpredictable — sometimes he wakes up excited to work, and on other days you couldn’t pry him off the couch with a forklift...

“I just don’t get Twitter!”, “Why do I need to be there? “, and “Who really cares what you do?” in response to Twitter’s prompt “WHAT’S HAPPENING?”.

 

I hear these types of comments all the time and I totally get this! I was right there with you about eight months ago. I just didn’t get Twitter…it moved to fast for me and I didn’t understand how you could possibly benefit from it. I want to share you with you what I have learned in just 8 short months about how much Twitter can really impact your business.

 

The reality is that Twitter is a wild, wonderful mixture of news, people, connections, content, videos and images that are presented in real time within your niche, marketplace or industry. It is an incredible platform that breaks worldwide news, influences major brands and allows small businesses to project their personal brand just like the big guys...
