8 Years Later, I Finally Read Jessica Livingston's book “Founders at Work : Stories of Startups’ early days “ - A Must Read

This is a book published in 2008 and I’m sure was a good hit when it came out. I had come across it many times over the years and had taking a glimpse at it for free at major book stores however never bothered to buy or read it till this month, May of 2016.

Not sure the main reason for this strong urge to finally read it...maybe because I’m always thinking about founders, life of a founder, how do I help others who aren’t as exposed to the entrepreneurial energy  or environments....It might have been a force.

For those of you who don’t know Jessica Livington (@jesslivingston)...I've included her bio which was in her book.

Are Entrepreneurial Institutions Practicing Ethnic Cleansing?

The problem is no matter how diverse their local demographic they seem to constantly promote one of their own. It’s an endless cycle of “I wash your wash my hand”. Always manipulating the system to help a few who fit perfectly into their mold or who has the connections or money. The reality today, there are many entrepreneurial institutions (accelerators, incubators, schools, vc, financing, private equity, etc) around the world residing in multicultural markets like New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, South Africa, ...pretty much in any major city and you can’t help but wonder how not-so-f%^|&* diverse are their workforce from junior level to senior level. How not-so-diverse are their speakers. How not-so-f%^@#^ diverse are their successful and failed founders. How not-so-f%^@#^ diverse are their experts. No founder, in the millennial generation, should tolerate and associate with entrepreneurial institutions that do not reflect their cities populations.

Great Ways To Spot & Act On Opportunity - Founders Under 40™ Group Shared

I’m sure many of you grew up with parents urging you to pursue higher education so you could have a better life. They realized the game of life and the importance of status and made every attempt to lead you to a promising careers like doctor, lawyer or accountant or in the trades.

However I think what they kept forgetting was teaching their children how to sustain mental toughness, spot opportunity and seize opportunities.

In an ever changing world the only way to win it seems is to become disciplined, smarter, and experiment faster.

Simply, you have to evolve faster.There are no guarantees of success on the choices and actions you take.

Is Your Business Marketing Ready For A Minimalist Society?

Marketers and businesses need to be a little concern of a world were consumers live minimalist lives. Since the 2008 great recession, I’ve sensed and observed a generation of individuals grow tired of excessive consumerism. A generations that have learned to resist the “jones effect”, social pressures, and marketing bombardments. I might be wrong however I believe a significant population over the next few years will find ways to buy more for need and rent their wants.

How Your Locus Of Control Impacts Business Success - Shared by Manny

Does your business success or failure depend on what you do? Or what the world does to you?

Your answer will depend on what your own personal "locus of control" happens to be. Locus of control is a psychological term first coined by Julian B. Rotter in 1954 and it refers to how much individuals believe they can control events that affect them.  Psychologists believe it's an essential element of all of our personalities.

This Game Is Broken. Why Don’t We Fix It?

Is it because we are pussys?

There’s a level of dissatisfaction in the current game of life, specifically with current capitalism. Many of us grow tired of a game we dreadfully play. You might be working at a well respected organization in your city, doing a job you love, getting paid a huge amount of money, which allows you buy the cool toys at the Apple Store, take that dream trip to a Caribbean island, and even have money left over to pay your mortgage. One thing though, you are on your third married, and your soul feels empty?

You could take a chance and get out of a miserable job, unethical industry, and toxic relationships but like the stability and are afraid of being alone.

You could be a veteran lawyer, teacher, mechanic, doctor, banker, police office, fireman, venture capitalist, a manger of a non-profit organization, professor, a student, a drug addict...some how you and many manage to accept the same old f$%&& problems because we need to take care of our needs.

The World Deserves Better Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Boomer Founders. + Happy Holidays From Founders Under 40™ Group Team

The celebration of life, giving thanks and giving back on a big scale is on its way. And the great sales opportunity are just around the corner. Black Friday and Cyber Monday was crazy as usual. In some cases it’s not so much about the special promotions but the time of year to reconnect with family, friends, pets, parents, or favorite destinations. Some of us founders are fortunate to be in a part of the world that enables us to pursue our dreams comfortably and fulfill our desires in life easily and enjoy this wonderful time of the year. And then there are some of us who are faced with environments that do not nurture dreams, that discourage change or systematically hinder progress. Therefore we hope founders & the Founders Under 40™ Group members realize this holiday that we can do better for mankind.
