Asher over at BizHumm reached out to me last month to share with me his company’s online business guide that they created. The comprehensive free guide is entitled, How to Start a Business, which features 15 chapters and almost 25,000 words of valuable information. And this is all for free!!! Anyone who dedicates this much time to freely educating people about the business process has to truly be enthusiastic about small business and helping small business owners succeed. (more…)
I was going through my Google Alerts for Entrepreneur and Entrepreneurship the other day and came across an interesting article on Entrepreneur. It was an article that talked about the 4 Strategies John Lee Dumas used to build a $250k a month podcast. If you are not familiar with John Lee Dumas, he is the founder of Entrepreneur On Fire, which is a great podcast for entrepreneurs to have on their list of podcast. Read the rest of this entry
HUSTLE. The word “sophisticated” business people hate to use and be associated with. The word hustle has a negative connotation attached to it for many people who operate a business but it is a word I love.
If you are an entrepreneur, small business owner, startup founder; you are most definitely hustling. You are not just operating passively because doing so would most certainly jeopardize your ability to be successful. You have to be aggressive/ assertive everyday while building your business. Just because opportunity is available, it doesn’t mean it will just be handed to you. Read the rest of this entry
I am not one of those people who says you must go through extreme hardships in order to be considered an entrepreneur. And I am also not one of those people who believes that everyone should be an entrepreneur or can be an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is not some job with set hours and set requirements outlined for you to perform. Entrepreneurship is an ongoing process of actions that you have to continuously develop and properly structure in order to produce the most rewarding output for your efforts.

Last week I covered Part 1 of The Entrepreneur Process. If you have not read it, I suggest you take a look at it before proceeding forward. For those who have read it, you know that we have established that simplification is needed in order for an entrepreneur to succeed. What you want now is the information that instructs you on how to create a system to implement into your entrepreneur process.
The system is important for two reasons:
1. You stop having to constantly trade time for money
2. Your ability to make money multiplies significantly, giving you the opportunity to scale your operations
Last Wednesday I had my first meetup for my Meetup group Entrepreneurial Ambitions. The meetup went as expected with any new networking group. I had about 40 RSVPs but only about 10-12 people showed up. I was hoping for at least 15-20 people but I knew not to focus on the quantity of people in attendance but more on the quality of people in attendance. And fortunately, I had some ambitious individuals in attendance who reinforced my motivation for why I started the meetup in the first place.
One of the key questions that I had asked was, “Why did I create the Entrepreneurial Ambition’s Meetup group and what was the meaning of Entrepreneurial Ambitions?” Read the rest of this entry
Last weekend I had the opportunity to be included as special guest media at a great event. I was asked to come out and cover, The I Am Boss 2015 Conference. I Am Boss is an event produced by Boss Christian Network, which is a business network that operates on Christian principles. Tamara Diahann, the founder of Boss Christian Network, believes that there is no reason for Christians to separate their religion from their business.
With the I Am Boss Christian Conference, I believe Tamara wanted to give the attendees a great deal of information and value for a very reasonable price of admission. From financial institutions to image consultants, the industries represented at the conference greatly varied. As it was the first conference held by Boss Christian Network, I can say that it was handled very well. Putting on a live event is no easy task and the expectations which are set can be very hard to achieve on the first go around. Read the rest of this entry

Last weekend I had my mind awakened to an unsettling realization. I left the rat race of the J.O.B. (just over broke) to only be in the rat race of entrepreneurship! I was quite shocked and ashamed of myself when I came to this conclusion. So what is the entrepreneur rat race? How could someone […]
I can’t even lie… I am tired and need a weekend of nothing but sleep and relaxation. Between working to make The Symmetry Firm successful, recruiting people for the Atlanta Entrepreneurial Ambition’s Meetup Group, creating the strategy for taking Entrepreneurial Ambitions to another level, writing for other sites, networking at least twice a week and going to the gym at least five days during the week; I am always on the go or working on something. But, honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. Read the rest of this entry
