    Great Buzz. My coach does a very similar thing. In step one, he calls it the "Other Person Test." He repeats what my goal is back, to see if what I said had clarity. If what he repeated back is not what I meant, I need more clarity on my goals. Without clarity enough for a second person to understand, my goal it still to broad to achieve.

    Although each one of these entrepreneurs was driven by different motives ,all were able to go against the logic of many others.Most entrepreneurs didn't dream of a business card with nice logo kept in their pockets,but of having the tools that help them deliver their core interests.So,its better for the new generation to own their tools that are stemming of their core skills,not of their business cards.They can also determine their way depending on their core interests.
    For every young entrepreneur I would ask them to focus on what they are passionate about and give them more focus and energy.The perversity of nature would say if you are young you can't carry heavy weights but if you are forced to do that, it will be better to keep the weights very close to your body.The same with the entrepreneurial ideas,keep them close to your mind and heart.When an entrepreneur owns his or her tools they will enjoy more and different degrees of freedom than others and their idea may take them further than they could expect,but keep the load lighter.,two riders of any creative idea is more than enough.Thank you @Katyan Roach for sharing your entrepreneurial spirit through an inspiring post.

But those who have been successful reap the rewards from the seeds they sow.

    @Donna-Luisa Eversley thank you for the shout out and drawing me to @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven's post. Preston, thank you for sharing your words and insight with us. We are bound to take indirect paths in our life time; and while it may seem like a wrong path it could be leading you to another intersection where the direct path will present itself. Life is full of lessons. Some are easier to interpret than others and yet some leave us stupefied - searching for the answers and the why.

    You raise an excellent point about choices vs. circumstance. We make choices, and more often than not those choices are what lead us through the chapters of our lives. Yes, we can find ourselves in circumstances but our choices will be the guiding force in helping to see us through - or not see us through - depending on the course we take.

    I wish you well on your journey.

As we grow older or mature faster (many do), we realize fairly quick who not only has our backs but our best interest in mind. And your right, we've all been down the wrong path and surely, we will be again. It's being able to recognize and admit we have in order to keep going with our head held high.

    #4 I like your view. It reminds me of the story of Joseph. God was the Director of his life. The circumstances of his life took his into slavery, then into prison, and later into the Pharaoh's house. Joseph rose to the top, but it took a while to happen. Joseph was 17 years old when he was sold into slavery (Genesis 37:2). He was 30 when Pharaoh promoted him (Genesis 41:46), and had been in prison for two years before that (Genesis 41:1). So he was in Potiphar’s house for 11 years. It took 11 years for the full measure of God’s blessing to be accomplished in Joseph’s life. In the end the God's Directed him to save Egypt.
    Yet, we all still have our choice to listen to the Director.

    #3 @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. The Secret to saving yourself years of time, is to learn from someone else's failures by Reading. But you are absolutely right. No matter how much I read, or how much I listen to my mother's words, I did not know the real sensation of HOT until I touched the heated stove myself. This may apply to areas in our life too.

    @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven your comment here is one that I've told myself and others many times ."I was were I was from the sum of the "best choices" that I had made up to that point." When we look back its always after the fact. When finally one makes a decision whatever the outcome, accepting we made the best choice as we knew, is important. I've listened to many people complain about 'if they had known better they would have'. In my opinion, the after analysis is okay in moving forward and learning, but not for berating oneself! Good post. Thanks for sharing :-)

    Having sight is important to inspire a vision.A vision is not a vision unless it's inspired and acted upon.If you stand by a "window" ,whenever you change your position at the window you will see things differently.Having a transparent window will help you stretch your vision beyond the norms and the business logic of many others and become more strategic ,while a dark or one - way mirror window can restrict your vision and make you more tactical or depend on your feel gut.If you have a good vision and also changed your position at the window and can't see things differently ,you either change the window or have a magnifying lens to see things differently.Your window(sight) will to great extent influence your vision and the one-way mirror will determine the impact of your vision.

    @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven - great post - Love the Helen Keller quote where she was asked once “What would be worse than being born blind?” to which she replied “Having sight without a vision.” Napoleon Hill - “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.” So, if there is an idea that keeps popping up in your mind, you may want to take a long hard look at the possibility of achieving it. This is Vision. I've got note books that I keep with me to jot down ideas. I must check them out and see if there is a common theme anywhere that I should attend to.

    27/01/2017 #1 Lori Boxer
    There are three components of a well-written, well thought out business plan: (1) objectives; (2) a mission statement; and (3) vision statement. The OBJECTIVES of a business plan are the most important part, and they do not have to be financial. You can set objectives for performance, customer satisfaction, and other key elements of success, as long as you define how they will be measured. Goals may include increasing monthly sales or profits to some specific number or by a specific percentage; decreasing costs or operating expenses to a specific number or percent; or finding a specific amount of new funding. Next in importance is the MISSION STATEMENT, which defines the long-term goals of your business in three ways: (1) What does your company do for its customers? (2) What does your company do for its employees? (3) What do you want from your business? The Mission Statement is more permanent than an objective in a business plan. It needs to be applied consistently over time, and serves as a reminder of the main purpose of your business. Last is the VISION STATEMENT--what the business’s future will look like if the mission is achieved.

    A business plan needs to include Objectives and a Mission Statement. If you have a vision that adds substance and value to the business plan, include a Vision Statement.

    We were riding on his scooter one day, at may be 40kmph suddenly he'd just park the bike to the corner of the road and tell me "Fatima there's a hundred rupees note on the side of the pavement go pick it up , at first I thought he was joking but then we used to find money most of the time. It was like an adventure that only both of us shared. I'd be amazed everytime he was right about the amount. He had a very sharp eye sight,was a very generous human and I miss him alot.

    Academic medicine can certainly use this example as a woman's manner extraordinaire on a motivational video. And just at 3 min without sounding rushed, but in fact quite calm. We should strive to be like this.

    Posting consistently and staying on topic is going to benefit your account over time. You can’t expect instant success with Instagram. It takes time to build up a popular account and attract followers that will routinely engage with your content. Once you identify the topic of your page, stick with it, and remain laser focused.

    #1 I agree with you @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD ! I think alot of articles/info geared to one platform actually does apply to all in regard to respect of others and manners. Thank you for the suggestion to make some honey!!! I hadnt thought to do that as I didnt write this artcle so Im not sure it would be ok for me to write it as Honey? I am always contentious to give credit appropriately...so maybe I can do that and make sure that I note what is my content and what is not?

    Even though the article is on Instagram, it 'fits' Twitter manners, too. It also applies to Producing Honey, then paying attention to the Comments & Discussion. Great gem here - @Gloria if you just Copy & Paste / write it as a Producer with 1 great image, you'll be making honey!

    #18 A lot going on in that post, @Pamela 🐝 Williams! My only comment is that, in life, you tend to go where you're aiming. If you are dominant in aiming for the "T" in SWOT, then that's where you will go. My other comment is that I equate "Threat" with fear and all that fear provides is motivation to move away from the source of fear/threat. On the other hand, "Opportunities" provide a compelling direction toward something like a goal or a destination. That's why I think that all 4 qualities are equally important in the SWOT analysis.

    08/09/2016 #18 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    I have worked with some great, and i mean great, strategists. I learned a lot from them and their ability to see the big picture. I have used much of what I learned in other positions and what I find is I'm the 'T' projector in SWOT. Some thought of it as being a nay sayer but I have found exploring the threats in depth you are prepared (much like those A & B plans for your flight). My grandfather used to tell me that people start every job high; excited, driven. But every job had its rough spots. Knowing that and having a plan to deal with them can change your own outlook and the outlook for the company. My two cents! Enjoyed this read, very interesting!

    @Laura Mikolaitis - MOST places I visit don't have a plan or else the plan they have is purely tactical or operational. I work within the hierarchy of answering the WHY first, the WHAT second, and the HOW last. In America, we are excellent at figuring out HOW to do things, but when I ask groups what is the expected outcome, I often get another HOW. The first 2 hours of a planning session with a new group is often spent teaching them how to think in the hierarchy above. My favorite analogy to get them thinking in this new way is one I came up with working with a car dealership; "We provide transportation, to enable people to go to work or play, through the sales and service of cars and trucks." Thanks for your comments and insights!

    Interesting insight @Steven Marshall, thank you for sharing it. And to @Donna-Luisa Eversley, thank you for the shout out and pointing me to Steven's post. Steven, I agree with you that the only constant is change - and being able to adapt to it is a key component to being able to move forward - both professionally and personally. In my opinion, having a plan is always a good idea but I have been involved in many scenarios where there was no plan, and instead a spaghetti theory approach was applied; that is, throw it against the wall and see what sticks. Sometimes it worked and other times it failed. I can't help but wonder how the scenarios could have played out differently had a strategy been hatched. Thanks for the post!

    Excellent advice and I love your use of the plane as an example of having a precise plan in order. Sometimes we have a plan and it works for quite a bit of time, then it may be time to reassess and that's what my husband is working on now, a new business plan.

    @Lance 🐝 Scoular - very well written post! I get much better results now from my blogs and posts on Social Media Platforms than I am from advertising on Google. I think that people are fed up with see adverts on the search pages, and those awful Adsense ads and pop up ads that are so prevalent. Establishing yourself as an expert within your field creates trust and I find the feedback from readers and potential clients invaluable. Have shared on the Marketing Hive and on LinkedIn.

    10 Reasons why Social Media may not be working for your small business! I think this would have made a better title dear Lance ;) Right now it reads like a statement that states social media doesn't work for small businesses.That aside, yes indeed to all your observations. Some are the very basics that need to be established before campaigning begins.Great checklist in there! The smartphone is the newspaper, the TV, the Radio and the Internet all rolled into one right now. No sayin it! Thanks for sharing :)

    Good Stuff Lance. The trouble that most businesses have with social media is that they really aren't willing to make the investment in professional communications. That and the fact that they don't really understand how it all works or, as you pointed out, how long it takes to build their brand online. Thanks.

Because, specifically, there is no place to have a "Store." I would like to see the addition of "Store" capability ~ I think that would set us apart. @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, @Ali Anani, PhD., @Dean Owen, @John White, @Juan Imaz. I also want to see a beBee Publishing House...and I realize I always come up with ideas before my time. ;-). SO, food for thought!
