Should Founders Aspire To Build Unicorns or Blue Chips - Part 1





Being a unicorn company is now the underlying expectation from venture capital, private equity, founders, potential talents, etc because all eyes are on the superstars of tech. But mostly because of FOMO in life and financially. It’s almost like instead of appreciating the proven summer Olympics most just can’t help but talk about Donald Trump, who just sucks all the attention.

The exciting -entertaining -unpredictable content versus the proven universal content.. It’s like fighting to buy a well dressed cow that might produce milk instead of plain cow that has proven milk production. As for this article, my focus will be about figuring out whether founders pursuing unicorn status is a great endeavor or whether simply settling for private blue chip status is a lot better. I will begin, with part 1, by providing some general info and part 2 will be where I let it burn.

How To Toughing Your Service B2B Marketing or Die Trying



The Stress Causing Reality of B2B

There’s a lot of stress facing many service businesses. . .just trying desperately: to create a desirable service, to create awareness, to then sell it for a profit, and finally deliver a great experience is very demanding. In the past, you practically had forever to get it right because barrier to entry was huge.

Today, the formula for achieving continuous success in a competitive world is a minute-by-minute ongoing experiment. One day you could be celebrating the huge site traffic and record sales from your campaign and the next day your campaign has lost its momentum and consumers have moved on to other things. What I’m trying to say is your s%#^ is not the s#^&. If there’s not much differentiation and significant value in what you offer then your services are gradually being turned into commodities.

There are at least three choices in this reality. You can accept things, change things, or walk away from it. This content will help you see the b2b buyers perspective, your perspective, and some suggestions to consider.

How To Become An Agile Founder and An Agile Marketer


Yahoo failed to be agile that’s one reason why they lost ground to guys like Google and Facebook. If you look at yahoo through out its years you will see not many significant innovation or product diversity. Many have also blamed its slow-footed, mediocre products, poor culture, and failure to get into mobile sooner. Now if we look at Google, so many products and innovation that I sometimes wonder if they’ve been smoking a magic innovation weed. They can keep pumping out products because all they have to do is embed ads into. Almost every android user is expose to the mighty Google ad engine. The point is individuals can learn to be more agile in life and business like the Google’s of the world.

Since this is not about comparing one human to Google the company, I will admit that change is in the water. A lot of us are individually battling a lot of toxic noise and friction while we eagerly try to make sense of our founder lives and personal lives. Noise such as terrorism, jihad, identity, sexuality, love, millennial underemployment, racism, gender, gig-jobs, guns, wantrepreneurs, urbanization, biased-authority, the have and have not gap, GMO, automation, Donald Trump, etc. The fact still remains that the common constant in life and business are still change and adaptability also known as uncertainty and agility. What does it take to achieve sustainable success in a growing noisy and changing world? So far what I can conclude is that we all must adopt a better agile way of living, operating a business and loving . 

The following great insights are being shared with my fellow Founders Under 40™ Group members, founders, leaders, and individuals. Also I recommend you check out my new toolkit which will help you plan your founder life better. It is called, “The Founders Life Plan Tool Kit”. Which was produced by myself and the BJ MANNYST (www.bjmannyst.com) team. Our key sponsor FOUNDERS UNDER 40™ GROUP. (www.foundersunder40.com)

Everyone Was Made To Be Eagles Not Chickens : Founders Under 40™ Group




We have set out to be a great positive contributor to society and We are sure it’s the same for our fellow founders and most individuals. While working to take Founders Under 40™ Group to a higher purpose, we want also to encourage others around us to aspire to be Eagles. 

To stop running through all their lives as chickens on a poultry farm. So that you and many others can really be great. That you also can be significant. That you also can be a positive contributor not just a spectator. 

The reality today, there are some who believe we are better off divided and there are many of us who believe, our world and lives would be better if we all learned to get along. So we shared this to help us all become eagles.

The content below was originally written by a different author who is a fan of Mrs. Palin and this doesn’t represent our affection for any celebrity. There are some religious context which is not meant to promote religion. I & Founders Under 40 Group are sharing this for greater good of the whole of humanity, giving Founders & Individuals a way to strive to be a part of the solution.

For World Peace Let’s Give Ultron A Try - Founders Under 40™ Group




As I step out like many of you do to either to go get the bacon or simply to enjoy what life one can squeeze out of a day. Only to realize the cloud of hatred had sucked every ounce of air out of my lungs. The recurring theme of violence by civilians and authority figures has made it clear to me that we are living more and more in a time when few of us have intent on spreading: misinformation, violence, chaos, hate, hypocrisy, terror, supremacy or just bad judgment. And there are some of us so bored of our existence that we figure might as well start something terrifying regardless of the consequences. Almost like deciding to run with the bulls at Pamplona’s San Fermin festival and getting gored to death. For my sake and for the many who are just in a state of shock still, I wish to share this. We either become individually better by improving ourselves or we leave the fate of mankind to Ultron. So Instead of Trump, vote Ultron for president.

What’s It Like Managing Group Community via LinkedIn





What frighten me of social networks, specifically LinkedIn, is that the social factor is dwindling at a rapid pace. The overwhelming experience of LinkedIn and it’s endless content and noise which everyday reminds me a lot more and more like Facebook and twitter. Just bunch of people posting all kinds of videos, pictures, articles, people posting 24/7 not based on quality or fit but rapid posts after posts. The true motive of spreading content or creating sponsored “content” is likely mixed. The same can be said about how I feel about LinkedIn groups. Some still think it’s the hottest thing if you just overlook the rotten egg smell. Some think it’s a cheap way to advertise. Some think it has become an irritant. Either way I just know the internet and social networks have failed social.

I Will Ignore Your Content Marketing So Engage Me

https://goo.gl/lHQYEU

Unless you have earned my attention, you are not worth my precious time. 

Lately, everyone seems to have a strong stench of desperateness ... trying eagerly to share their expertise, their opinions on LinkedIn groups, guest post on Forbes, literally anywhere that can help them get noticed by the “pretty girl”. In this context, the pretty girl is the potential customer. Unfortunately no matter how good or terrible your content is ,it doesn’t entitle you to be engaged. I’ve taking the liberty to share some tips to help improve your chances of engagement.

You could share content on every social media network in the world as much as you want and as frequent as you want, even buy the endorsement of LeBron James and it will not mean anything if no one really wants to listen to what you have to say.

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 hand...you 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.

***The list of ways to spot opportunity were originally published and written by a Paul B
