About this blog: I've been asked over the years by friends, family, business associates: Why write the blog? How long does it take to write a blog post? Is it good for business? and various similar questions.
I will attempt to answer most of these questions here. The blog is written for personal & business reasons, a mix 70% business, 30% personal. I believe, in general, the blog has been good for both business & personal use. It usually takes 1-2 sittings and about an estimated 35-45 minutes to research & write one good blog post of ~ 250 words (including finding a good graphic).
People who read it will have a better understanding, from an experienced entrepreneur point of view, what works and what doesn't work in a startup, as well as what it took to succeed in business and eventually what it takes to sell a company.
In addition, readers will find tips on:
- managing daily life at work
- having a healthy life-work balance
- managing various business functions
- correcting gaps in education & management experience
- becoming socially responsible & taking action to reduce your carbon footprint
I hope being public on the above topics helps other entrepreneurs succeed in life & work.
