The Bottomline: To an entreprenuer, every idea is great. It's the growth that's gonna cost

The Bottomline:  To an entreprenuer, every idea is great.  It's the growth that's gonna cost | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

To an entreprenuer, ideas come to us on a daily basisi.  We're sort of trained to see what others miss when it comes to oppotunities.  We alway sort of have our antennas up for that next big thing.  To most, who are working and paying bills, it might not be their interest to see new oppotunities.   They may already have to much on their plate.  The entreprenuer although can see sunshine in a shitpile (we're really that goofy).

So therefore we have a whole lot of ideas.  but it's the growth of that idea that cost.  Matthew Knowles had a idea, "My daughter can sing and I'm gonna make her a star."  The idea cost nothing, the growth cost a lot.  Now that Beyonce is that big star and Matthew's idea (not Beyonce's or Jay Z's or Beyonces's mother.  Matthew's idea). has come to fruit, Matthew paid the cost for that growth.  The family also paid but Matthew guided his idea boat into harbor for the win (not Beyonce, Not Jay Z or Matthew's Ex wife).  Matthew and the family paid the cost for growth and the fans applauded with support,  That's how it works.

You gotta expect to pay the cost for growth, if you want to win.  It's gonna cost.  Sacrifice, commitment, tenacity, all of these items will be on the table and for you to succeed you'll have to pay.

Remember, the idea cost nothing.  It's the growth that's gonna cost.

I'm ReggieRedd and that's the Bottomline

Mark Cuban Says Solving The Student Debt Crisis Is The Best Way To Save The Economy

Mark Cuban Says Solving The Student Debt Crisis Is The Best Way To Save The Economy | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it
It's a $1 trillion crisis.
Reginald Shipman's insight:

Mark Cuban for president Finally a voice of reason. Rising tuition cost in higher education and the debt burden is the greatest threat to the American economy and class (social) structure. We have a society of unemployable youth and over educated spoiled idiots coming out of schools with way too many loans and the burden of that debt and today's youths inability to be employable is America's greatest threat to our economy rebounding.

TheBottomLines- ItsYourMoney- Sometimes if you're really smart you'll listen......

TheBottomLines- ItsYourMoney- Sometimes if you're really smart you'll listen...... | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

Ok I'm gonna say it,Thorton Mellon is who I modeled my business philosophys after (#ThereItsOut).  I'm not a real stickler for structure ( as Mellon was not), I believed in a day to day today street mentality (as did Mellon),  I feel that sometimes the educated over think things to sound smart and overcharge you for them sounding smart. ( as did Mellon) and I like Bubbles ( as did Mellon).  I don't consider myself a writer or a blogger (as testament to my work here #Lsmh).  I'm not real big on punctuation or spelling (maybe I should be, hmmmm.).  I just let my fingers go where the keyboard feels #FRFR.

What I am good at although (as I've been told) is backwardly engineering products and services and making those products and services more market worthy( thank you Thorton for giving me that insight).  Entrepreneurs tend to feel like they're pretty smart guys and have a tendency to try and make being the bright equate to profitable (no profitable is profitable).  You see to be profitable with customers you have to quit trying to impress them with your "ObieWaness" and listen (#IRepeat), listen for the opportunity to provide your client with what's really they're solution.

The smartest thing anyone can do is listen.  When you do that then its easier to 1 hear the problem, 2.  recognize the opportunity, and 3. Create a strategy to answer the challenges, but this all starts with listening.

So thank you Thorton Mellon and pompous professor for showing me that sometimes, the smartest thing you can do is........LISTEN

That's TheBottomline

The Skill You’ve Always Wanted: How to Instantly Read People | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it
The ability to “read” people is by far one of your most valuable skills in business. The people you interact with each day send you signals, and if you learn what to look and listen for, each person will tell you exactly how to effectively work with him.
Everyone experiences the same basic human needs—results, recognition, regimentation and relationships—with some holding more dominance than others. Depending on the weight placed on each need, people differ in personality.
So what is there to read?
