    @Juan Imaz,These billions reflect how these unicorns were able two offer the two things that are mostly required by today's customers.They are very aware that to disrupt their markets,that requires continuous disruptive innovations to change their users daily habit.They have excelled in offering the two things that are mostly required by the customers in these states;value through convenience and quality and their genuine service which is founded on the value of the intelligence.Adopting different strategies to deliver these two things not only carried along a well established image but also ensured that the image they crafted in their users mind is consistent with the vision they created for their companies.

    Great tips and observations @Adel de Meyer. My husband has been in business for himself for almost 14 years now. Through failures which happen to everyone he's learned and it motivates him to re-prioritize. If a person's ego is too large they will miss opportunities, so the ego must stay in check. Thanks, this is great info for those who are just beginning or are second guessing themselves.

    The road to success as an entrepreneur has enough barriers as it is. Don't let bad habits or bad people make it more difficult. Clean up your act and clean up your life.

    Well summed up, cleaning up can surely help.

    4) What could have been?

    @Adel de Meyer. Thanks for the interesting post. Entrepreneurial success is not only what you have listed, but an attitude to 'start up' and be passionate about that. Today's entrepreneur do not need manpower as a board member but an all rounder to understand the business process with a concept. With the use of digitization our 'walk the walk' has become at the speed of light and still there are barriers and hurdles. Start up failures are more than the successes. Why and want went wrong? May be capital and preparedness before launch. Thanks and reagrds

    #1 When you have a resistant spouse, you need to find a supportive business partner. Not everyone has the courage and strength to be an entrepreneur, but all spouses like to eat, so find someone who complements your skill set and strengths and who fuels your ambition. That should help. @Graham🐝 Edwards you will like this post.

He is Brazilian, educated in São Paulo and now works in Dublin, Ireland as a investment advisor/entrepreneur. It would be good to see someone like him on BeBee, so worth a try for you to see if you can connect with him and in doing so see if knows about beBee.

    Évariste Galois (French: [evaʁist ɡaˈlwa]; 25 October 1811 – 31 May 1832) was a French mathematician born in Bourg-la-Reine. While still in his teens, he was able to determine a necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a problem standing for 350 years. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory, two major branches of abstract algebra, and the subfield of Galois connections. He died at age 20 from wounds suffered in a duel.

    #1 @Kohei Kurihara, I love Technics brand. Technics is a brand name of the Panasonic Corporation for premium hi-fi audio products.

    And one of the best ever marketing slogan: Technics - "The Science of Sound".
    I often use this ultimate slogan in different versions: The Science of Knowledge, The Science of Silence, The Science of Fractals, The Science of Social Networking...

    Kōnosuke Matsushita (1894 – 1989) - Japanese industrialist who founded Panasonic.

    #1 I thank you very much Kohei for introducing this subject. This enables me to incorporate what I am reading into my own learning journey, and had I not touched upon this buzz, I would never have learned about the founder spirit and values of Konosuke Matsushita. http://www.panasonic.com/global/corporate/history/konosuke-matsushita.html

    I am a phenomenal advocate of founder values, that includes the values of the two founders of beBee e.g. @Juan Imaz and @Javier 🐝 beBee - and if they look at the way Panasonic have laid out the history of their Founder - they can project in their own minds how that history may unfold for beBee but that an entrepreneurial path cannot be predicted today - but does flow from the original seeds of founder values.

    Founders like those of Toyota understood that to sustain their value, they would emulate the principles that Henry Ford utilized to finance the company through its profits. The founders of HP are cited as creating the HP Way (which today is credited as a human resources philosophy) but when we look at HP's 1966 objectives we can see that the HP Way was led by first focusing on creating contribution i.e.profit and then leveraging the business from that strength.

    Apple and Microsoft today carry massive cash reserves. They don't want to get caught in the trap of short-sighted lending policies. This is how these companies insulate themselves. Henry Ford discussed this back in 1926 in his classic called "Today and Tomorrow" http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/355407.Today_and_Tomorrow

    I have a penchant for talking about 21st Century thinking and analytics for me is a great example of this, so I really welcome the quality of these buzz's because it is so much easier and even fashionable to talk about social media or leadership or even happiness, when the nitty gritty of everyday processes are being informed by the very thinking elucidated here. It might be popular to say correlation is not causation but to really understand that saying is another matter entirely.

    #21 @Phil Friedman Thank you for your detailed comments Phil. The way I look at it: The intrinsic value of a share, as based on asset value of the company and / or expected future cash flows, is a constant at the time of a share split and it would be illogical to ascribe a higher value based only on the intrinsic value at the time of the share split. However, a share split does result in the share being more tradeable and more liquid, and this may well result in an increase in perceived value. So yes, the reference in the article is not totally correct. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

    @Gert Scholtz, to my mind, this is a major problem in the behavioral sciences, including empirical economics. Namely, very simple rational analysis is often overlooked. To wit, you say, "In the most common form of share split, one share is replaced by two, each with halve the value of the original share, yet together still the same value. For example a share of $80 would split into two shares of $40 each. Often there is a perception of increased value created when companies split their shares. Yahoo announced their share split and the share price surged 16% the next day." There is nothing surprising or noteworthy about this. The mistake being made is in ASSUMING that the perceived value of a stock in as a share of something real, for example, the assets of the company. The fact is that nowadays the stock market is nothing more nor less than a parimutuel betting window. When a stock is split, everyone PERCEIVES that the total value of each pair of resulting shares is greater than the immediately prior value of a single pre-split share, NOT because they think the inherent value of the share has increased, but because they expect that post-split the shares will almost immediately begin to appreciate -- which is born out by the Yahoo example you give. That the author you refer to is simply mistaken when he implies that the perceived of the split shares accrue to the shares, when in fact, it accrues to the perceived greater potential for short term appreciation. Otherwise some good points covered and made. Nice piece, Thank you for sharing. Cheers!

    Thanks gentlemen (just in case you don't know who you are, I am referring to @Gert Scholtz, @Ken Boddie and @Kevin Pashuk) for making me smile a few times. I've never smiled and scrolled up at the same time before.

    OK @Gert Scholtz and @Kevin Pashuk, since we're on the subjects of psychology, marketing and engineers, let's look at how we can psycho-analyse a glass of water.
    The optimist says it's half full, the pessimist says it's half empty, and the engineer says it's twice the size for which it should have been designed. 🤓

    Interesting 'psychonomical' precis, @Gert Scholtz. Engineers have been designing road pavements on a similar principle for decades. Pavements, for example, all fail, due to repeat loading and associated material fatigue or differential strain accumulation. This is unfortunately inevitable and all pavements have a finite life, estimated as part of the design process, after which they will require some form of remediation or reconstruction. This concept is invariably sold positively, whereby designing on a 95 percentile basis (rather than say 90 percentile or 80 percentile) is most often described as a 95% chance of exceeding the estimated design life, rather than a 5% chance that failure will occur before the anticipated design life. Perhaps this might also explain why there are so many psycho engineers running around out there? 😰

    #9 I specialize in breaking things. I will subvert, overthrow, derail and destroy - just like the enemy will - because I don't play by your 'rules' nor do I abide by the sunny pedantic optimism.... and I have been right on too many counts to be ignored..... One time I helped overthrow South Korea in a war game...... because that is what the enemy would do...... there were more than a few pissed off and embarrassed O-5's and O-6's on that one. (Luckily the Admiral loved it)
