How to Transform Your Passion into a Successful Business

How to Transform Your Passion into a Successful Business | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Starting a new business is an emotional roller coaster. That's why it helps to make a living out of what you love. Here's how to get there.
Samuel Pavin's insight:

From passion to startup to success.

The ideal journey of course. But what better option for building a business than doing so around something you love ?

At the same time, loving something is not enough to make you successful; so love and do plan.

Question your startup idea

Question your startup idea | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Samuel Pavin's insight:

A self-branded "3 min read" (true) and interesting piece about the matter of questioning your ideas.

We often say that startups are built out of passion and dedication. That fear leads to failure or not taking action.

Fair enough but moving forward just to realize that this passionate idea is not a passion of yours anymore a few weeks/months later does not make sense either.

So, get high, sit back, relax, reflect. Then go ahead (or stop).

Startup Advice

Startup Advice | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Samuel Pavin's insight:

Back to startups, a wonderful list of advice, by Sam Altman, on his blog. 

Well, that sure is a list of almost 100 advice but all valid anyway. Still those might not be applicable to everybody or every situation but if startup is anywhere around your mind, make use of these as a checklist.

Not all, just pick 10 to 20 and make them your own checklist for success.

8 Hats entrepreneurs often wear

8 Hats entrepreneurs often wear | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it

Entrepreneurs creating companies are often the only ones in the company at the start.

Samuel Pavin's insight:

A quickly-read article but a point to be made again (and a piece of advice for all entrepreneurs) that an entrepreneur is not only a guy with an idea.

There is usually quite a skillset required to not only found but also run a company - be it a startup or a well-established one.

My favorite sentence : "Be lazy". Glad to have found this great article "proving" me right; or, say, doing the work of providing actual reasoning behind my 2 words.

Great article, well written and hitting the spot :

Doing more does not mean doing more.
