Goals and Sparks in Entrepreneurship


People that resolve to get rich simply by becoming entrepreneurs rarely succeed. The thing that these people lack is enjoyment. Beyond all other purposes to pursue wealth through entrepreneurship, if a person does not enjoy what they are doing, the intense work required to become a success will become unbearable. This inability to stay driven is one of the main failures in people that seek wealth this way. However, people that became entrepreneurs because they understood that in order to keep doing something that they loved, they would have to make it an ongoing business.

After this, they often then see that the business will also have to provide for them all of the things that other less enjoyable, unfulfilling work would bring. However, this is okay because that love will often cause these people to exploit these other areas until they have gathered the resources to then go after their entrepreneurial goals. The common theme remains that a love for an activity often fuels a way to make that passion a successful business. It is also a common theme that successful business owners report as their driving force.

Another trait of successful entrepreneurs is planning. Successful entrepreneurs do nothing without first planning. Jumping into things and succeeding only happens in high school. In life, it will be the trait of every failed person that fancied themselves an entrepreneur. Initially, the opportunity must be researched thoroughly. The next step is to plan the resources that are feasible to invest, their implementation along with milestones, the intended return for the investment and when this return can be reasonably anticipated. Additionally, even exits in certain scenarios must be anticipated and planned. Planning allows for sort of a dry run that will place well-informed entrepreneurs in a better position to exploit the available opportunities.

Successful entrepreneurs have a penchant for self-promotion, but this does not mean self-aggrandizing. It is the ability to have a wide audience understand the business that you are in and that you are capable of servicing their needs. There is no one that people trust lest than a shameless self-promoter. This is a fine line, and this means that successful entrepreneurs must know the difference. It also means that the successful entrepreneur will deliver on the promises.

Advice from Marc Sparks

Never overpromise and underperform because this is the biggest sign that someone is disingenuous. This is advice that Marc Sparks sometimes give as a part of impersonal conversations that he has with strangers. As a successful entrepreneur, he has several initiatives that are designed around helping start-up entrepreneurs succeed. This is an example of not only giving back, but in a method that empowers the fledgling entrepreneurs to obtain the success that they seek.

Kourtney and Scott Finally Over ?

Kourtney Kardashian is beyond tired of Scott’s childish behavior, and she’s tired of passing him off on her family every time he has a meltdown. They have been together for 9 years, and have three children together and yet Scott refuses to clean his act up. Things have gotten so bad, that many nights Scott is forced to sleep at Khloe’s house because Kourtney doesn’t want him at home while he is drunk. Even though it seems as though Kourtney should kick Scott to the curb she is invested in her relationship and wants the father of her children to grow up and handle his responsibility, but with each child it seems Scott is falling deeper and deeper into his self made hole.

Now Kourtney and her family are tired of babying Scott, and making excuses for his constant drinking and partying. As if Scott’s issues with clubs and booze weren’t enough, now Kourtney once again has to put up with the rumors of his cheating and drug use. Kourtney is done with Scott, and ready to leave hi behind.

Apparently, the latest rumors about Scott’s 4 day drug binge in a New York Hotel with a 21-year-old girl is the straw that broke the camel’s back, and not Kourtney is ready to get full custody of the kids and finally be done with all of Scotts drama and emotional issues. This might be a new start for Kourtney according to Watts, but knowing her devotion she is likely to take Scott back again.

Donald Trump Getting Fired

Donald Trump isn’t used to hearing the words, “You’re fired!” he so famously shouts at contestants on The Celebrity Apprentice, but he’s being told that a lot lately. Ever since he made the derogatory remarks about Mexican immigrants on June 16th when he officially launched his campaign to run for president, companies and groups have severed ties with him.

On Thursday, Serta, the biggest mattress manufacturer in the United States, announced that they would no longer sell the Trump Home-branded line of products. The licensing agreement won’t be renewed when it expires in December.

Just the day before, officials of Macy’s Department Store released a statement saying that the ties between their company and Donald Trump had been severed. Trump responded by saying that he was the one who decided to terminate the relationship, and Adam has to believe him.

The rest of the list of companies distancing themselves from Donald Trump is lengthy. NBC and Univision won’t broadcast his Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. Celebrities associated with the pageant have bowed out. Cheryl Burke and Emmitt Smith were slated to be judges, and Flo Rida and Natalie La Rose were scheduled to perform. NBC had previously announced that Trump’s show, The Celebrity Apprentice, will go on without him.

Iggy Azalea’s Career Over?

Iggy Azalea is one of the hottest pop stars in the world, but it seems that people are beginning to hate her. Iggy Azalea’s latest collaboration was with Britney Spears, and the title of their song was ‘Pretty Girls.’ Unfortunately, ‘Pretty Girls’ bombed on the Billboard charts, and Iggy Azalea has gone on a rampage against Britney Spears.

TMZ recently published an article about Iggy Azalea and her comments about Britney Spears. I should warn you that Iggy uses profanity when speaking about Britney. Iggy Azalea believes that Britney Spears did nothing to enhance the popularity of their song, but Britney Spears claims otherwise.

Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears have been insulting each other back and forth on Twitter, but it seems that Iggy is no match for the veteran pop star. Britney Spears has been famous for over a decade, and Iggy Azalea is not about to ruin her career. Furthermore, it seems to Andy Wirth that Iggy Azalea has lost an incredible amount of fan support throughout the last few months. For those of you that don’t know, all of Iggy Azalea’s future concerts have been canceled, and fans believe that Iggy Azalea is on her way out.
