Essential of entrepreneurship: what it takes to create successful enterprise

pg. 2- one trait that seems to be necessary (but not sufficient), however, is leadership. Entrepreneurs must, at minimum, be skilled enough to assemble teams, provide vision, and inspire confidence.


pg. 3- self motivated entrepreneurs draw their strength from deep inside them.

Pg. 4- entrepreneurs are at the heart of the success of modern societies.

Pg. 5- (interview with Gene Kleiner) to your success as an entrepreneur? To have sufficient technical knowledge and to be a risk taker.

Pg. 17- (author: Gopal Patwardhan, Robert Hunt, Rahula Chandra, Paresh Ghelani, Ben Nagrani, Rishi Navani) there's no doubt about it, entrepreneurs are a special breed. They're passionate about their ideas and their business goal, and they're willing to work hard over extended periods of time to make their dreams a reality. ... We believe that entrepreneurs are particularly attuned to a universal and inherent human trait: the desire for freedom.

Pg. 19- be warned: your life is about to change. As you build your company, everything about you will be tested, from your personality, to your work habits, to your self esteem. ... You will never be without a boss. In fact, you will have to answer to many more people than you probably ever have. Entrepreneurs are risk-takers, but successful entrepreneurs are those who minimize as much risk as possible. ... Almost all successful entrepreneurs succeed because they are persistent.

Pg. 31/32- the majority of small business fail within the first few years is that most of these failures, however, resemble one another in important ways. Such as:
- procrastination (tasks and paper work pile up on your desk. Eventually, they could overwhelm you),
- ignoring the competition,
- ineffective marketing plan,
- ineffective customer service (once you attract customer, you'll have to work hard to keep them),
- the wrong team,
- failing to validate your customer,
- cash-flow problem,
- close mindedness (everyone goes into business with some preconceptions, but don't be surprised to that many of your are wrong. Look for mentors),
- poor planning,
- mixing personal and professional issues.

Pg. 33- business plan are dynamic in nature. They are living documents that will need constant modification as you develop a clearer focus and continuously revaluate your strategy. They are also living documents in the sense that they communicate your enthusiasm.

Pg. 53- investing a small amount of time to carefully choose and reserve a name will yield returns in the form of mitigated business and legal risk. From a business perspective, the company's name or must be secure from the beginning. From a legal standpoint, a poorly rejected name can expose the corporation tota range of legal liability.

Pg. 124- every entrepreneur thinks that his or her product or service will change the world. ... By focusing on your behavior, attitude, and soft skills, you begin to inspire others to pay attention; when key people in the company develop their own skills, your chance for success increase exponentially.

Prebral: Lestev in sirček

Košuta, Miroslav. Lestev in sirček. Ljubljana:mladinska knjiga. 2001.
ISBN 86-11157-63-x.







Str. 3 - Lestev in sirček
Mala miška išče lestev,
da bi zlezla do neba,
ker vabljivo luna-sirček
se tam gori ji smehlja. 
Pa so lestve vse prekratke,
previsoko je nebo -
žalostno zmajuje z glavo:
s tistim sirčkom nič ne bo. 
Na sinovo vprašanje, 'KA PA?' (tu je mislil, zakaj ni prišel na luno?), sem mu odgovoril, da se ni potrudil dovolj. Ko bo starejši, bi mu lahko odgovoril nekako tako (to sem prepisal od kolegice s foruma) 'KDOR HOČE NEKAJ DOSEČI, VSELEJ NAJDE NAČIN, KDOR NOČE NIČESAR NAREDITI, NAJDE VSELEJ OPRAVIČILO!'

Na spodnjem video posnetku, je gospod našel način. Kako? Skrivnost? Ali pa ni, saj nam je vsem dano istih 24 ur na razpolago, kaj ne?!



Alamut

Knjiga Vladimirja Bartola - Alamut, sem prebral na mah. Mislim, da je mi potrebno interpretirati, saj so spodnji citati dovolj zgovorni sami zase.


Str. 165 - 'izkušnjo si odlično prestal, mladi prijatelj. Prerokujem ti, da boš postal nekoč še veliki in mogočni dai. Dozorel si, da ti razkrijem pravi izmailski nauk. Prej pa se mi moraš zaobljubiti, da ga ne boš nikomur zaupal, dokler ne boš posvečen.'....'nauk o Aliji in Mohamedu je samo slepilo za množice vernikov, ki jim je ime Prerokovega zeta sveto in ki sovražijo Bagdad. Kdor pa more razumeti, temu povemo, kot je ustanovil že kalif Al Hakim, da je koran proizvod zmešanih možganov. Resnice ne moremo spoznati. Zatorej ne verujemn v nič in smemo vse storiti.'

Str. 170/71
'Toda Kristus in Mohamed sta vendarle hotela množicam dobro?' - 'Da,' je odvrnil. 'Hotela sta jim dobro, toda spoznala sta tudi vso njihovo brezupno bedo. Usmiljenje ju je nagnilo, da sta jim pričarala bajko o raku, ki ga bodo prejeli…

Rezervni deli za mikrovalovko

Zlomili smo plastično zapiralo mikrovalovne pečice (to naj bi bil tudi uradni naziv). Kaj zdaj? Hm, prvo sem pogooglal, kje lahko kupim to zapiralo. Dobil sem dve spletni strani. Ena je od podjetja Jurcokd d.o.o., Črna vas 318, 1000 Ljubljana, ki jo najdete na spletnem naslovu http://jurcokd.com/proizvajalec/rezervni-deli-whirlpool in druga je od Whirlpool, ki jo najdete na spletnem naslovu http://www.whirlpool.si/podpora/rezervni-deli.
Stvar oz. rezervni del zgleda tako



No, poklical sem prvo podjetje, ki mi je povedalo ceno 17€ + poštnina. Se pravi, če pomisliš, da je nova mikrovalovka (navadna) cca. 50€, se mi je cena zdela previsoka.
Pokličem drugo podjetje, ki mi sporoči, da je cena 6,01€. KAJ?? Preverim še enkrat in jim povem, kaj potrebujem ter kako zgleda, pa mi odvrnejo, da glede na številko modela, so naški originalni del, ki stane 6,01€.
Seveda sem kupil pri drugem. Povem jim za prvo podjetje, oni so se samo nasmejali.
Spoštovano podjetje JURCOKD D.O.O., ČRNA VAS 318, 1000 LJUBL…
