Any parting words of wisdom for entrepreneurs out there?

William Gibson said “The future is already here.”

I think when you search for entrepreneurship ideas, some people tend to fall into the trap of serching for the “Big Idea” – feeling that they need to invent something that is totally revolutional and totally new.

But that’s not necessary at all. So many successful startups are about solving the small problems and inconviniences that have existed for so long, and to simply provide a solution that is accessible and easy to use. Look at Uber or Airbnb. In the US, “Carpooling” has been a popular & practical option in cities that have limited method of transport, and Americans have long rented the spare rooms that their grown kids have left behind. In other words, the future was already there, and right there in the hands of the ordinary people.

What Uber and Airbnb did was to simply notice those scenes from life, and to repackage it in the way that fits the current lifestyle, in the style of user-friendly infrastructure.

I think the word “entrepreneur” tend to imply charismatic genius with crazy idea, but in actuality I think it helps more to be alert & perceptive to what’s happening (and what needs to happen) here and now.

In your opinion, what are the keys to entrepreneurial success?

1) Flexibility

2) Bravery to be in the minority

3) Credibility

 Flexibility, because you need to read the tides of time and to proactively adapt yourself to it. Not being afraid to change the initial plan. To always be moving forward in the direction you can; because that is where the real need is.

Bravery to be in the minority. New & novel ideas will not be accepted and understood at first. But you need have faith that future is on your side, and what is minority now will be the norm in the future, and make brave steps towards that future.

Credibility. You won’t succeed without help and kindness from people around you. It helps enormously to have people who believe in you and to willingly support you. And to do that you need to open yourself up and be credited for the person you are.

I never set out to be an entrepreneur.

I’m just a guy who wants to make a positive impact in the world – to change and enrich it. And in this day and age, the most obvious approach for doing that seemed to be to use the power of the web, and to start a startup.

If I belonged to a different generation, I think that I probably would never considered starting up a business. Maybe I might have tried writing novels, or got involved in politics, or work the field as a farmer, or whatever.

something about sitting down to eat inside people’s homes really helps to establish a deep connection and exchange our lives in such short time. The experience changes me (the HIKER) but to have this strange traveler come into your home to share your food, it changes them (the COOKs) too.

事情通に言わせると「本は名刺代わり。講演会やセミナーで稼ぐ」ということになる。
 たしかに講演会は割がいい。
 60〜90分喋るだけでウン十万円だ。
 
 ところがね、ここだけの話、セミナーはもっと儲かるらしいよ。
 100分程度のセミナーで2万円ぐらいは当たり前。それを4回で1セットにして合計8万円。セミナーに50人来れば、あっというまに400万の売り上げが立ってしまう。
 マジメに毎年ベストセラーを出すのと同額が、セミナー1セットで稼げちゃう。
 売れているもの書きなら、参加者は100人を越えるかも知れない。
 セミナー1セットで800万。年間で10回シリーズを転がせば、それで8000万の売り上げだ。
 すげえ!とんでもなく儲かる!!
 
 いや、まだまだ上には上があるんだよ。
 直接、参加者を呼ぶタイプのセミナーではなく、CDやビデオ素材を定期購読させる「通販型セミナー」だったら、利益は天井知らずだ。
 CDやDVDプラスちょっとした冊子の教材を毎月送付して、年会費が10万〜20万。その他、特別セミナーや特訓ゼミなどという名の4〜10万円するコースをどんどん受講させる。
 ネットでちょっと調べただけで、こういうビジネススクールやセミナーがすごく増えているのがわかるだろう。
 不景気だからこそ、ビジネスマンは自分磨きに熱心だ。いま経済的に余裕のある人には、そういういわゆる「セミナージプシー」になっちゃってる人もあんがい多い。

仕事には、「短時間で正確にできることが大事である仕事」と、「ゼロから創り出す発想や創造力が大事である仕事」の二つのタイプがあるといわれます。

The Body Shapes of the World’s Best Athletes Compared Side By Side

Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.

I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!

Just a reminder - if you’re drawing a team superhero book and more than one of your characters has the same build YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG

That is actually very cool.
