The man behind the success of Apple..

November 30, 2008 Leave a comment

Steve Jobs, who was the brain behind the “Apple”  knew how to sell his product. He was albeit not a technical person but he knew the basics of marketing and this made him the one of best marketer in the world. He founded apple computers with his friend Steve woznaik. The two together had laid the foundation of the world’s greatest company. 

Well it might seems to some of you that why am i writing about steve jobs as the world already knows about him. But the reason why i am writing about him is my curiosity to tell every reader again and again about him. He is a legendary person and the way he does business is inexplicable. He is the role model of so many people and only recently while i was studying more about him through his videos, my respect towards him increases manifold.

I would want all of you who wants to do great in life and aspire to be an entrepreneur, please learn about him and watch his videos so that you won’t miss even the minutest details of marketing.

Risky Business

November 29, 2008 Leave a comment

Is entrepreneurship always about money? This question is for those who are starters and wants to become entrepreneurs. Sometimes building one dream requires annihilation of the other. You cannot always associate entrepreneurship with big fortunes. It might happen that you end up losing a lot of your savings without earning even a penny but this shouldn’t be the end of your struggle to achieve what you aspired for. The road of entrepreneurship is not bed of roses but consists of thorns and stumbling blocks. All you have to do is to evade them and emerge stronger and invincible. Well my lecture does seems inspiring but a little example would definitely substantiate what i have just said.

Entrepreneurship quote of the day:

The entrepreneur is not really interested in doing the work; he is interested in creating the way the company operates. In that regard, the entrepreneur is an inventor. He or she loves to invent, but does not love to manufacture or sell or distribute what he or she invents.

Hey budding Entrepreneurs….

These days everyone wants to achieve a name for itself and do something big. In this endeavor of doing great in life many lose their paths and are left deserted in life. Recently i came across a video and i was so thrilled that at the end i couldn’t control myself and i collected every possible information about the speaker. Well the speaker’s name is Guy Kawasaki.

He is  a founding partner and entrepreneur-in-residence at Garage Technology Ventures and co-founder of Nononina (the owner of Alltop.com and Truemors.com). He is also a columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine. Previously, he was an Apple Fellow at Apple Computer, Inc. He has authored eight books including The Art of the StartRules for RevolutionariesHow to Drive Your Competition CrazySelling the Dream, and The Macintosh Way. He has a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from UCLA as well as an honorary doctorate from Babson College.

There is more to this person than just his achievements. The man is very inspiring and his talks about Entrepreneurship is just mind boggling. The best part of the whole package is his rule of “10-20-30” which is great and has conveyed a very deep meaning about how presentations should be delivered. 

I would want all of you to listen to his video about entrepreneurship and just have a great time.

His video “The Art of The Start” is about how one should start his/her company and what are the precautions one should take before jumping into it.

The link of his video is given below:
