Paul Finkelstein You WON A Livestream Interview! Ready?


Hi Scott A and ALL,

This dude is one great innovative Entrepreneur!

Who inspires you into why YOU are feeling more and more like an entrepreneur?????

Kindest regards,

Technically Ryze is a business networking TOOL. A very good BNT.
(Biz networking tool) Ever remove a fly off someones forehead w/an ax?
But if you dont know how to use a tool, you could get unpleasing result.
Extreme, but very good analogy when someone uses harsh words in email.

LOL, Scott!

Yeah, go ahead and laugh. But that woman has:
- Built one of the strongest personal brands in the worlds
- Changed the entire business model of an industry
- Mastered product distribution channels
- Diversified her business's offerings while remaining true to the brand
- Produced enough content in advance to keep releasing new products the rest of her life without ever working again. That would be like me having my next 10 books already written.

Whatever you may think of her industry, the woman is a business genius.

I am inspired by everyday entrepreneurs - the ones who don't make the headlines, who don't have multi-million dollar companies, and yet have so much.

They have a solid business foundation
They have a great team working with them
They have vision
They have perserverance
They have optimism

They are People like:

My first mentor Jim Grant - who saw something in me before I did - he has one of the most successful printing companies in South Florida and knows when to say yes, and when to say no.

Diane Hatcher - a professional organizer, author, speaker and more - who got a specialized designation to make her stand out in a sea of other Professional Organizers

Dr. Tina Dupree, The "Chicken" Lady - who worked for Churches Chicken as National Trainer and then went on to start her own training and consulting company and impact hundreds of thousands of people with her smile, her spirit, her intellect and her experience.

Dr. David Popper - who learned to change when the community his business is in changed - instead of closing down he found a way to cater to a new clientelle.

I could go on, but you get the idea... I also greatly admired Dave Thomas - founder of Wendy's - he started a youth entrepreneurship program in South Florida and I was one of the first mentors to sign up - it was an enriching experience to be a mentor to tomorrow's business leaders and more importantly to learn from one of the best, most down to earth business people in the country.

Wishing everyone a great day... and then some.

Heidi

Who inspires me?

I hesitate to post this, but I wonder why no one else did.

I inspire me. Without me, there is no inspiration. I say this because not everything about the people from whom I get my inspiration is ideal, with the sole exception, perhaps, of the Dalai Lama, that is.

MY own inspiration has been influenced by many; not necessarily in this order:

Helen Keller
Adrienne Arsenault
Winnie the Pooh
Elmo
Jesus Christ
HH Dalai Lama
Donald Trump
Dr. Kevorkian
Gregg Rowe
I have to agree with Scott A on Jenna Jameson, and Richard Branson; very impressive folks, both.
My Dad
My brother
My husband
My kids

Heck... lobster inspires me. :)

Geez... don't ask me about my muse!

What is it about the Pooh?

Well, for one he is adored by everyone. Nobody dislikes him. He may not be everyone's favourite Character, but there is no room for disliking him.

I have a miniature Winnie the Pooh charm dangling from my cell phone.

It is not really Pooh that is the inspiration, it is more the philosophy of Pooh. When I was a very little girl, Pooh was my friend. (I know, I'm old, get past it.) Anyway, I had this vinyl record that I would listen to over and over again that inspired me then. It very often got me through the difficult times that children with AS have to go through.

Then when I grew up, I discovered a book by Benjamin Hoff called The Tao of Pooh... It relates Taoism to Winnie the Pooh and simplifies it in a very western way... It just made sense to me.

P'U is actually known as the Uncarved Block and one of the basic tenets of Taoism. The idea of it is that things at their base simplicity contain their natural power and when that simplicity changes, their power is spoiled or lost. Winnie the Pooh is the living epitome of P'U. He, Pooh that is, is simplicity itself. He has an unspoiled childlike innocence, knows that live is fun! He has the ability to do things spontaneously with no fear that they won't work out from lack of planning and because he is both Pooh and P'U, they work out even though they might not seem to work in the usual way. AA Milne describes him as "a bear of very little brain" and the idea of P'U is that one doesn't need one so much as they want to think they do.

My favourite quote from Pooh is the following:

"Lots of people talk to animals," said Pooh. "Not that many listen though. That's the problem."

I guess what strikes me most is that in the simplicity of it all life is effortless.

So... Pooh and P'U, in the Winnie the Pooh sort of way inspires me.

The cuddly charm, well, I like to think that I suffer from cuddly charm, when I'm not being caustic that is, so I use my cuddly charm to hide my causticness... I hope it works. :)

As for my muse? how much time have you got? To give you the Pooh answer... Jim Morrison called his muse (and mine) "The Lords".

Let me know if you need that explained.

Sounds silly, but I really look up to and admire Scott Allen :)

He's down to earth, and he's often given me a better perspective on what to change to go from fringes to 'smacking it out of the ballpark' as it were.

Down to earth, and often funny when writing I enjoy most of the things he writes, not just perspective wise, but because he engages my attention.

Hi Folks!

My day to day inspiration is Bert Hadfield a UK hog farmer who lost his herds to disease several times. (Pre insurance days).

When the roof fell in, he tilted his cap back and calmly said "Looks like we have some work ahead, Ted". and proceeded to rebuild the castle. (Note the "we" rather that issuing orders).

Reflecting on his attitude has pulled my train out of the ditch, many times and got me safely home.

He also taught me that when making a purchase; It's best to conserve assets and stretch a bit more and do an extra deal that not only that provides the funds but also, leaves me with extra money in my pocket when the dust has settled.

Works for me.


Bestest.

P.S. I'm still praying for guidance for our world's leaders. Please join me.

Entrepreneurship…. and Entrepreneurs…. A topic, very close to my heart…

Paul has asked for us to name One…. Well I can name one but I must also name another….

The first is Dr. W. Edwards Deming….. who I consider to be the “Father of Entrepreneurship”….

The second is Peter Drucker…. Who I consider to be the one that made the term “Commonplace” (or another way of looking at it, he helped commercialize the Concept)

Both men have passed but their legacy is living on…. Today…. Now…

The concepts and ideas generated by them have instilled into the people that have been mentioned above as Entrepreneurs… They have instilled into all of us the “Spirit of Entrepreneurship”…. Although most of the people above would not even know the teachings and ideas of these two great men….

I guess that’s where true change takes place… when idea’s and concepts are so profound that they become instilled and anchored into our sub-consciousness… they then have a dramatic effect on our actions…. (Unconscious Competence)…

Without Deming, Japan would never have been able to make the progress they have made…. Deming was many things… one of the leading minds of the last Century… but above all he was a Humanitarian… For an excellent read on his life and ideas… this book is great…. Mary Walton was able to meet often with Dr. Deming before he passed in 1993.

Walton, Mary (1986). The Deming Management Method. The Putnam Publishing Group

“Deming returned to Japan in the 60’s after many unsuccessful attempts to have American Businesses listen to his concepts. The Japanese embraced these concepts.”

When I was with 3M, we contracted Dr. Juran as a consultant on quality and I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Dr. Deming, almost one on one… that encounter had a profound effect on me…. I then went to RIT to enroll in their Masters Program for Statistic’s….

Some of his comments from that time….

“Nature abhors a void (vacuum), so find a void… and fill it… fill it with something of value and quality, so if is going to be filled anyway, let us choose to fill it with quality things” that has evolved to the Entrepreneurs Credo “Find a niche and fill it”.

Other Quotes:

"There is no substitute for knowledge."

"The most important things cannot be measured."

"Experience by itself teaches nothing."

"I think that people here expect miracles. American management thinks that they can just copy from Japan—but they don't know what to copy!" We maybe to proud to learn from something outside of our borders…

Peter Drucker coined the phrase “Knowledge worker” or “Knowledge Society”, his book “Entrepreneurship and Innovation”

He helped to popularize the concept…. Through the use of statistics and knowledge…. To CREATE….. new concepts and ideas….

I believe we have now moved from the Knowledge Society into the “Creation Society”… and all of us that consider ourselves “Entrepreneurs” are really “Creatrepreneurs”…. Not only are we finding and filling “Niches” but we are now filling “Niches” from a higher perspective… we are considering the impact of those “Niches” on the greater “Whole” or is it “Hole” (Void)… :- ) Why! Creatrepreneur… because we are now able to cross global boundaries.. network… socially and business wise… around the globe.. it now takes added skill sets that just being an Entrepreneur…

Peter Drucker’s thought processes at the time, where helpful for 3M to put a name to what we were doing, which was later commercialized by Tom Peters and Ken Waterman in their book… “In Search of Excellence”…

Sorry, for the long posting but this is indeed something that I am passionate about, I could go on and on… Maybe going back and reading up on the influence of these to Great, early Entrepreneurs… can only fuel our passion, for our profession…. And help us take it to the next level

Happy Creating!!!!!

Kevin

Elon Musk!

Elon was just named entrepreneur of the year in Inc Magazine. He is trying to launch into space for a fraction of the current market cost AND is building cars.. Tesla Motors. 100% electric cars, 0-60 in under 4 secs, 245 Miles per charge (tank on a gas car). For comparison the new 2008 600HP Dodge Viper is boasting the same 0 to 60 time. You will not get 245mph out of a viper. That said, I'm sure top speed the viper will lift off the ground and fly over NYC in comparison to the tesla roadster.

The viper starts at 85k, the Tesla at 98k.

After being on Ryze for 4 years I am fully appreciating Marilyn's advice.

It is a lot of megabytes!!
It is her book.
It will be a book, but the book came after she used her network to record her experiences in a 20 year+ career in the event and locations business.
Be inspired and appreciate her teaching and tips, I DO.

Hi Mike,

As much as I'm impressed with some of the 'big' names in entrepreneurship - both from modern and classical sources - I can't help feeling more inspired by those that have overcome adversity or some kind of limitation to achieve business success.

I also admire people that have done something really simple and effective, so that you think 'why hasn't this been done before'.

The following link is to a website from Fraser Doherty, who has revolutionised Jam (Jelly) in the UK and is not yet twenty:

http://www.superjam.co.uk/

I was at a seminar he presented recently and was impressed by his candour, modesty and entrepreneurial flair. He was on the very popular TV show Great British Menu this week, being consulted by a world class chef. That was inspiring for me.

Best wishes,

Mark.

That's too easy a question for me -- Walt Disney -- hands down. I respect and admire everything about him, the good, the bad and the ugly. He wasn't just a creative genius, he studied the numbers as well. He not only changed industry, he invented new ones.

Just one? It has to be Steve Jobs, hands down. He's done more to remake the world—how we work, talk to each other, and even think—than any other human being in history.

And he did it all by understanding that we had to adapt the machine to human needs, not the human to machine needs. That's genius.

If it weren't for him making computers "friendly" enough for the average person to use, we might not be talking to each other this right now. And don't get me started on the iPhone!

Best think I like about him is his "Never say Die" attitude and the way he came back in business and still ruling the world.

He was a first cousin of Jamshedji Tata, a pioneering industrialist of India and the Founder of Tata Sons. He was one of the partners in Tata Sons founded by Jamshedji Tata.

Ratanji was born in Navsari in Gujrat in the year 1856. He studied at the He then joined his family trade in the Far East.
Tata Steel was conceived and commissioned by Jamshedji Tata. However, Jamshedji died before the completion of the project. Ratanji played an important role in the completion of the Tata Steel Project along with Jameshdji's son Dorab and thus Tata Steel was established in Jamshedpur.
The Tatas supplied steel to the British during the First World War and thus played an important role in the war effort. Today TATA has produced the cost effective car NANO in the World just for USD $2500.00 and has over eighty different companies for products and services.

I am inspired by Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian, a Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon. I only recently got to know him through another wonderful entrepreneur Dr. Ron Niche Prof. I think what inspires me most is

The Dr. Mani Children Heart Foundation
http://www.CHDinfo.com

"He's all about results... $135,117 raised.
52 children heart operations sponsored. Over 739
donors contributed between 5 and 15,000 dollars.
Help if you can give a little bit goes to save a
child's life.

GIVE you will help a child live

http://www.CHDinfo.com/chdaware/hotdonate.htm

His second area of expertise is Infopreneur. His new
book being released

He recently finish his book "Think, Write & Retire!"

http://ThinkWriteRetire.com/launc.htm

Or check it out on Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=1448626595/reneremington-20/

My recent interview with Dr. Mani



= = = = INTERVIEW WITH DR.MANI = = = = =


1. What is the biggest obstacle you had to overcome to complete your book?

By nature, I'm a 'fast mover'. My information product creation typically takes a few hours to a few days, rarely longer. So sitting down to write my first print book,

"Think, Write & Retire" was quite a different experience.

Though it is essentially the same as creating any other kind of info-product, putting out a physical printed book has some unique steps and phases that make it a more
elaborate and time-consuming process. My biggest challenge was to stay focused on getting it done, and finding other people to help in areas I was not experienced with.

Fortunately, through my network of friends and by the collaboration that's now possible instantly on Twitter, I was able to breeze through these steps quite rapidly -
though the duration from start to end was still over six months!

2. How long did it take you to get into a profitable situation.

In my infopreneur business, overall, I got profitable very soon because the cost involved in creating a digital product and selling it on the Web is very low.
My very first ebook was a specialty guide in my area of medical expertise. It was written because there already existed a need for this kind of work. So selling it
became merely an issue of letting people know that it was available - and after that, word of mouth took care of the rest! That's the best way to be an Internet infopreneur.

After gaining significant experience as an infopreneur, I then entered a new niche in teaching this process to others - and again, it wasn't very difficult to be profitable
because it was obvious that information I was sharing had value and was based on experience and expertise.
That's one reason to pick the niche you want to enter carefully. In "Think, Write & Retire", I take two full chapters to go deep into the steps in researching and finding a suitable niche for you to explore as an infopreneur.

3. What the shortest route to successful marketing ... I've been at this a while

There are many ways to answer this question, but I'll choose this:

The shortest route to successful marketing is picking a proven method - and then sticking with it, practicing it consistently, and steadily getting better at it.

The sheer variety of choice available out there is mind-boggling. You have so many different models to earn a living on the Internet. There are so many ways to market
your online business today. And all of them work!
What's hard is to get it to work for you - if you're the restless type who flits from one technique to the other in search of a 'quick hit'.

Personally, my preference has been for email marketing and joint venture deal making as major marketing tactics. I've used both for many years, and constantly keep refining and improving my technique.

For this launch of "Think, Write & Retire!", I'm relying almost completely on the reach of my joint venture partners (there are more than 35 of them helping) and my own
in-house email list of several thousand passionate information marketers.

So the shortest route to success (in my opinion) is mastering a few key techniques, instead of curiously dabbling in a wide array of them

= = = = =

Dr.Mani's new book, "Think, Write & RETIRE!" shows how to turn words into wealth as an Internet Infopreneur. It doesn't matter if you're a retiree or a researcher, a
house-wife or a heart surgeon, a student or a sales-person. You can turn your expertise into cash in the bank - as an infopreneur!

Based on my experiences thus far, his head and heart are in the right place.

C.S.Chandrasekkar (c.s.chandrasekkar@gmail.com)
I feel that I get inspired in bits and pieces of someone's actions, someone's success rather than being inspired by that SOMEONE as a whole.

Even a street hawker who has a distinctive and unique, innovative way of attracting his customers, would inspire me.

I take that as a lesson, rather than just inspiration. In that case, there are a lot of people, some of whom are listed here, many not listed over here, and many more who might not be listed anywhere.

But then, to name just at least one of them, I think of the creator of the first WEB SITE of the world - Tim Berners Lee!

I've met him personally and heard him speak. He shares from his heart and really loves people. AND he knows what he is doing. I've learned so much from him.

Warmly,
