The Entrepreneurial Bright and Shiny Object Syndrome Exposed

The Entrepreneurial Bright and Shiny Object Syndrome Exposed

What You Need to Know Before You Sign Up for Yet Another Program
There’s an insidious travesty happening in the entrepreneurial world and I’ve stayed silent about it long enough.

 

It’s time to expose what’s really happening to unsuspecting entrepreneurs and business owners when it comes to seeking the perfect answer to their business needs. You probably already know it as chasing after the bright and shiny object syndrome.

It happens when the perceived need to learn more, be more and do more outweighs the need to actually get clients and run a business.

Why The Bright & Shiny Object Syndrome Happens

New entrepreneurs, especially women, often horde a deep-seeded secret that weighs them down and prevents them from growing their business to the heights they are perfectly capable of, but often don’t realize it.

That secret is the debilitating knowing they will be exposed as a fraud.

I know this because I too had this fear years ago.

It kept me playing small.

It stopped me from stepping outside of my comfort zone.

It dictated all of my business decisions from how much to charge to how I should be positioned in my industry to whom my ideal clients were.

The thought of being exposed as a fraud far outweighed any voice of reason that declared otherwise. It was a powerful force that controlled my every move.

But I had no idea this was going on. I wasn’t consciously aware of how much my actions were based upon that one fact: Feeling like I was a fraud.

But was I really a fraud? Hardly.

My educational background and previous business skills and experience put me far above the level of many of my competitors in the web development and digital marketing space. But I still found a way to discount all of that.

It wasn’t enough.

I needed to learn more.

Clearly they know far more than I do – just look at how “successful” they are.

They know the “secret”.

So what did I do about it? I signed up for every program I could in order to find out what that secret was.

I embarked to find that perfect formula to follow. That magic system that would take me from point A to point B easily and effortlessly. That thing that would make me successful.

Once I completed these programs, THEN I’d skyrocket my success!

Not. And it’s probably not going to work for you either.

Yes, you’ll get some new insights out of the training. You’ll learn a few things along the way. But it won’t be enough.

And that’s because it’s not really what you need. Not by a long shot.

More than likely all those programs will just result in you feeling more overwhelmed and confused than ever before. How on earth are you going to find the time to implement all this, let alone understand how to do it all?

There’s only so much time in the day and wouldn’t you prefer to be working on what you’re passionate about instead? The reason why you went into business to begin with? Here’s the deal. What you really need is to start believing in yourself.

I can’t tell you how many struggling entrepreneurs I have worked with over the years. They aren’t able to reach successful heights in their business and the first (and often only) thing they will blame is themselves.

Their inner voice is screaming at them: • You don’t know enough. • You need to learn more. • You are clearly in way over your head – what were you thinking anyway? • You’re better off just quitting before you are exposed as the fraud you really are.

This may sound very familiar to you too.

So what does an aspiring entrepreneur do when they have thoughts like these? They sign up for every course, program, system, webinar, teleseminar, telesummit imaginable.

They become addicted to learning.

In their quest to no longer feel like a fraud, they embark on a mission to learn every single aspect about running a business they can. They feel they MUST learn how to: – Figure out who their ideal client is (even though they’re not sure what to do with that info once they have it) – Build a website themselves (even though technology has never been a friend of theirs) – Design their own logo and marketing materials (even though they have never had any formal training in graphic design) – Set up a sales funnel (even though they’re not really sure what that is) – Write the sales copy on their website and landing pages (Even though writing does not come easy for them) – Do Search Engine Optimization (SEO) on their website (even though they aren’t sure what that means) – Conduct webinars and teleseminars in order to launch their new program (even though they don’t have a program to launch yet) – Get on stage and be a speaker… write a book… participate in JV partnerships… hold workshops…. The list goes on and on!

What results from all of this? Entrepreneurs are spending SO much time and money on learning all of these skillsets that aren’t a part of t

5 Smart Investment Management Tips

Are you just starting to invest in your retirement? Have you invested but not sure if you did it right? Do you want to have control over your finances and understand what your accountant is talking about?

If you answered yes to these questions, you have come to the right place!

Read on for five smart investment management tips that will help you build egg nests and rest in style.

Start Early and Go to Your Plan
It is best to start saving once you get to work. Even if your job does not offer a 401 (k) plan, you can open an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or a self managed super fund and invest your monthly income percentage there.

Once you have an investment plan in place, be sure to stick with it. It’s tempting to make drastic changes during difficult times. However, sticking to your plan will produce even better results on the road.

Keep the Cost Low
If you are new to the investment world, it is important to start a small business and keep it as much as possible. Look for discount brokerage firms, and consider index funds as they have lower costs.

Another way to save costs is to focus on long-term investments.

It can be tempting to buy and sell in response to market ups and downs. But, you will probably accumulate a lot of commission fees and management fees. Long-term investments also help prevent significant cash losses if your stock goes down in price.

Keeping Liquidity
Some people love the sensation of taking big risks with their investments. If you are just starting out, you can feel anxious about seeing your stock price repeatedly up and down.

One way that you can cope with this stress is to make sure you always have liquid reserves to cover your short-term expenses. Knowing that you still have enough money to pay your bills will help you manage your investments better. You also tend to over-react when the market is very volatile.

Invest gradually
It is also important to be disciplined and consistent in terms of putting money into your investment. Invest a steady amount of money through the full market cycle. This will help you better than trying to give time to the market, especially when you are a beginner.

Diversification
A diversified portfolio will help you manage your risk better. Instead of putting all your money into one category, invest in a mix of conservative stocks, stocks with long-term growth potential, and stocks that offer better profits but have a higher potential risk.

By diversifying, you ensure that your overall portfolio is not seriously affected when one share goes down. A diversified portfolio may not necessarily lead to the greatest monetary gain. But, steady growth is definitely better than extreme losses.

Remember, it’s never too early to start making smart investment decisions. Keep these tips in mind, whether you’re just getting started or just want to make some positive investment management changes, and you’ll soon be successful!

Self Driving in the Shipping Industry

Self Driving in the Shipping Industry

Whether it’s from Google, Apple, Uber or otherwise, the propulsion vehicle itself will become the ultimate game changer in the next few years. This autonomous vehicle will surely insert itself into many industries, but what will surely be the hardest hit is the shipping and transportation industry. Every day the truckers track thousands of hours driving across the country carrying goods from warehouse to warehouse, but what if the driver is not needed?
If this shipping truck can go from point A to point B without driver, how does this affect the industry? One of the biggest changes to come is certainly a hit for the workforce. There are currently more than 3 million truckers in the United States alone, so this will greatly devastate the job market. Pro autonomous trucks will come in shipping companies’ savings as the need for skilled truck drivers will decrease, the roads will be safer, because so far the driver’s own vehicle has safer driving records than the manned vehicles, and also allows shipping managers to manage the scheduling of their shipments by better, because you do not have to worry about considering the sleep / feeding needs of the drivers.

 

The delivery manager is probably some of the most excited for this new technology to be mainstream. Currently, there is an application and software platform that provides shipping tracking solutions that provide real-time information and updates to shipments for transport and broker carriers, but in the future this app may be more versatile. They can integrate full delivery automation that enables managers to set start times for delivery and have the ability to plan routes well from their offices – without having to spend extra time in coordinating with drivers.

The technology needed to allow truly autonomous shipping trucks is still quite a bit, but this is something the shipping industry needs on their radar. Technology companies are racing to be the first to reveal their own vehicle, when will their goals be achieved? It’s too early to say for sure, but maybe closer than you think.

Quite Enough: When to Get Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery

 

If you have back pain, you know how it can change your overall perspective.

If the pain is intermittent or insufficient to get you up at night, simply make regular visits to a chiropractor, massage or seek other treatments to reduce the pain.

But that’s another story when the pain interrupts every aspect of your life.

When is the time to consider surgery?
Advances in medicine and technology have enabled people with severe back pain to gain relief through minimally invasive surgery (MIS).

If other conservative treatments fail to work and your pain continues and paralyzes, back surgery can be the right choice.

The compressed nerves in your spine can cause pain or numbness that go down one or both arms and legs. Back surgery will often relieve it.

But how does the nerve become compressed? Well, that could be some situations:

Problems with your disk

Between each spinal cord is a rubber cushion called a disc.

When one of these discs protrudes or ruptures (also known as a hernia), it can press too tightly against the spinal cord and affect its function.

Excessive growth

If you have osteoarthritis, this can cause bony bulge in your spine.

This excess bone can narrow down the amount of space available so that the nerves pass through the openings in your spine.

Once you have the diagnosis, you want to understand your situation completely.
You will also benefit by developing a positive attitude. You can do this by:

Ask as many questions as possible (no such thing as too many)
Know what the proposed operation should do, how it will be done and what will happen afterwards
Ask if your doctor can provide you with written information or direct you to books, brochures, websites or videos where you can learn more about your condition and recommended procedures
Given the risk of not undergoing surgery – such as ongoing pain, further nerve damage, or even permanent disability
Ultimately, when faced with minimally invasive surgery options, you need to ask yourself what impact your condition has on the quality of your life. How will it be affected if you do not have surgery?

Many MIS surgical procedures do not require muscle or soft tissue cutting.

And many types of spinal abnormalities are now treated using MIS surgical procedures including discectomy, laminotomy, laminectomy, decompression, spinal fusion, and instrumentation.

MIS operations can:

help shorten stay in the hospital
reduce blood loss during surgery
reduce the risk of infection
reduce muscle and tissue injury
reducing postoperative pain and the need for pain medication
Plus, there is usually a smaller scar, faster healing, and rapid return to normal activity.

Still, you’ll want to consider all your options.

The spinal surgeon may have different opinions about when to operate, what type of surgery should be performed, or whether the surgery even matches your interests.

As SF skyscraper sinks and leans, the number of lawsuits rises

As SF skyscraper sinks and leans, the number of lawsuits rises
Residents mind the cracks in the basement walls of the Millennium Tower and wonder how far their homes and their property values ​​will sink

As the cracks in its basement walls slowly widen, a visual clue to the slow sinking of the 645-ft. skyscraper, the residents of Millennium Tower file lawsuits and wonder how far their homes – and their investments in these homes – will sink. Jon Wertheim went to San Francisco to report on the building that’s become the most infamous in the city’s skyline for a 60 Minutes story to be broadcast Sunday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. PT.

Since its foundation was poured in 2006, the Millennium has sunk 17 inches and tilted 14 inches to the northwest. The posh residence was once touted as the city’s bestsellers and ibs of the likes of tech titans and the city’s former pro quarterback, Joe Montana. Pat and Jerry Dodson were enthusiastic buyers. They tell Wertheim they were euphoric over their new home until the news broke about the sinking. Jerry, a lawyer and engineer, now makes a daily trip to the basement to check on the spread of cracks in the walls. “There’s enough of them, a spider web of cracks … that you have to be concerned about what’s going on underneath … I’ve been told by structural and geotechnical engineers that I should be watching.”

The trouble at the Millennium Tower has spawned numerous lawsuits – to which there are some 20 parties so far. But some residents have already sold their units. “We do not know if this building is going to stand up in an earthquake,” says Frank Jernigan. “And so I became severely frightened of that.” His husband, Andrew Faulk, adds, “We just left,” he tolds Wertheim. They say they lost between 3 and 4 million dollars when they sold their apartment earlier this year. “We sold it for about half of what it was valued at before the news came to light,” says Jernigan.

Millennium Tower was built to code, but some engineers now say that because the building is made of concrete and heavier than a steel building, its foundation should have been driven deeper, all the way to bedrock, to prevent sinking. An interesting array of suggestions about how to fix the towers have been floated around town; they include freezing the ground beneath in perpetuity or lopping off the top 20 floors to decrease its weight. More likely, say engineers, the foundation will have to be strengthened by new piles that reach down to bedrock.

While the tech-fueled building boom in San Francisco continues unabated and “bedrock” has become the new watchword to developers. In an ironic reference to Millennium’s troubles, tech giant Salesforce, whose headquarters was recently completed across the street, proudly tweeted that it was resting on “Bedrock Baby!”
