Killer Language For Entrepreneurs: Intellectual Acumen

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

“I am not here to tell you how smart I am, I am here to tell you how smart you will be in the eyes of your peers after backing my business….” Superior returns are rarely found in anything other than individuals, who are sharp, agile and fast-on-their-feet. Their intellect is manifest in an unconventional but simple business approach, which generates dramatic value and results for the investor. That sounds so simple. yet nearly every entrepreneur makes the simple complex and dilutes the impact.

In a momentous week for sports betting and gaming companies in the United States and UK,  there is a lesson for all of us. Quit whining about events largely out of our control that go against us (legislative changes) and maximise our investment in innovation and readiness for events that go for us.

A Bad Day

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Most people’s so-called “bad day” is very rarely bad. With extremely rare exception, no one has been shot at, no one has been injured nor have they died. Let’s keep a sense of perspective and positive self-talk about own lives, our family, our business, our clients and our investors. Yes, it may be frustrating, the key investor, customer or prospect rejected an offer we made, the Board aren’t supportive of our great idea or our ability to move with haste has been hindered by others’ procrastination. These things happen. They are mere speed bumps. They are not catastrophic unless you allow them to control your mindset.
