Launching new ventures: an entrepreneurship approach

pg. 1- today, more than ever before, you must take charge of your career, manage it, and turn yourself into business of one, proving your value at every turn. ... Being opportunistic, building social networks, and becoming a resource gatherer and a critical thinker are vital. ... you must create values and you must give customers what they want and need.

Pg. 4- entrepreneurs have the ability to see opportunity where others do not because they have a well-developed opportunistic mindset.

Pg. 6- the problem with the notion is that to grow effectively requires an infrastructure and systems and controls that most new ventures don't have and can't afford to acquire.

Pg. 7-8- research points to the ability to take calculated risk, an achievement orientation or intense drive to succeed, a sense of independence, an internal locus of control, and a tolerance for ambiguity.

Pg. 11- launching a new business requires tremendous amounts of time and energy, as well as support from family and friends. It can also be very stressful, so you have to be in good health and physically fit to withstand the pressures.

Pg. 13- preparing to be a entrepreneur- it is probably the one thing that cannot be taught; you either have it or you don't. .... one of the best ways to prepare for entrepreneurship is to learn as much about it as possible, through magazine articles, books, newspapers, and - most importantly - talking to entrepreneurs.

Pg. 17- the entrepreneur in only one component in tin process of new venture creation. The behaviors and experience of the entrepreneur interact with all other component, the environment, is the most comprehensive in the venture creation process. It includes all those factors, apart from the entrepreneur's personal background, that affects the entrepreneur's decision to start a business.

Pg. 19- the business formation process starts when one or more people decide to participate in the formation of new business and devote their time and resources to founding. ... The intent to start tin business is not enough to make it happen. ... It is important to note that not all business closures are failures.

Pg. 21- by contrast, small business are generally started to generate an income and a lifestyle for the owner or the family.

Pg. 28-29- networking is the exchange of information and resources among individuals, groups, or organizations whose common goals are to mutually benefit and create value for the members. ... Entrepreneurs do not act autonomously but are "embedded in a social context, channeled and facilitated or constrained and inhibited by people's positions in social networks (aldrich & zimmer: 1986 entrepreneurship through social networks. In the art and science of entrepreneurship. Edited by d. L. Sexton and r. W. smilor. Cambridge, ma: ballinger"

pg. 41- conflicts of interest is one of the most universal problems in business today. A conflict of interest occurs when a person's private or personal interest clash with their professional obligations. ... It is rare for all these interests to be in complete harmony with one another.

Pg. 471- when sales decline entrep often in into a period of denial. They start paying their suppliers more slowly to preserve cash, they lay people off, they stop answering tin phone, and they insulate themselves against the demand of their creditors. Their panic frequently causes them to make poor decisions about how to spend the precious cash they have. They figure that if they can just hold on long enough, things will in around. ... What often happens is that entrepreneurs get so tied up with the day-to-day operations of the business that they don't have time to contemplate the 'big picture' or stay in tune with their customers. Consequently, all too often they don't see a potential crisis coming until it is too late.

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…
