Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

20 Things I've Learned as an Entrepreneur

20 Things I've Learned as an Entrepreneur

On my last day at Consorte Media I wrote an email to myself listing the twenty things I've learned as an entrepreneur.  In honor of Consorte Media's birth anniversary of July 1st, I list them below.

1.    It’s rare when someone is their word; treasure it in others, cultivate it in yourself

2.    Call AND email – the squeaky wheel does get the grease

3.    Hold yourself to a standard of behavior and business

4.    Pay attention to detail

5.    It truly is win/win – don’t work with folks who think about it any other way

6.    Focus

7.    Don’t bang your head against the wall – go with what works, but that doesn’t mean you don’t continue to innovate

8.    Be kind but firm

9.    Adopt the Cindy Crawford motto and never point out your flaws but do admit to your mistakes

10.    FEAR:  False Expectations Appearing Real

11.    You always have a choice

12.    People will fight you on everything – stick to your guns

13.    Perception is reality - you’re always creating an impression

14.    Everything is a negotiation, even if you don’t think it is

15.    People hear what they want to and usually only remember the negative

16.    Generosity looks good on

17.    Have the difficult conversations – they’re always worth it

18.    It goes by fast and your health is the most important thing - take care of it/make it a priority

19.    Those old business axioms are true, e.g., take time to hire and be fast to fire

20.    The path to hell really is paved with good intentions

Ready to jump into entrepreneurship?  You don’t have to create a business to be an entrepreneur.  You only have to realize that everything you ever wanted is just beyond your comfort zone.
