"You’re an entrepreneur when..."

While browsing the net, catching up with my regular dose of news from different blog sites, I came across few things that I thought would be helping in motivating and encouraging us to get up, and acknowledge that already have what it takes to become the future entrepreneurs.

All we need to do is to take the necessary steps required.
You know you’re a young entrepreneur when you start to look around in your classroom and think of ways your classmates can profit you in some way (not monetary necessarily).

You know you’re an entrepreneur when eating food or sleeping seems like a chore to you.

You know you're an entrepreneur when your enthusiasm keeps you awake at night and you start to think of ways to profit from insomnia.

You know you're an entrepreneur when...you work 16 hours a day for yourself, so you don't have to work 8 hours a day for someone else...
You’re an entrepreneur when time freezes while you are doing what you feel passionate about. You forget that there's a thing called breakfast, lunch and dinner. And you forget what is sleeping, and you forget that everything else is there.

Everything, everyone, every situation becomes an opportunity
You know you're an entrepreneur when you bore your mates with business ideas!
You know you're an Entrepreneur when you sometimes lose sight of every other thing in your life that has value, and you know it, but you keep pushing because your drive to succeed is too strong and uncontrollable!

You know you're an entrepreneur when...your friends keeping asking if you've totally lost your mind...and you just smile.
You know you're an entrepreneur when you cringe at the thought at ever having to be an employee again.

You know you’re an entrepreneur when you take your girlfriend out to dinner and try to give her financial advice.
You know you’re an entrepreneur when you are making more while in college than your peers will when they graduate.

I hope this motivates us in our steps in becoming successful entrepreneurs.

Quote of the Day

The first requisite for success is to develop the ability to focus and apply your mental and physical energies to the problem at hand - without growing weary. Because such thinking is often difficult, there seems to be no limit to which some people will go to avoid the effort and labor that is associated with it- Thomas Edison

12 Years old Entrepreneur

Known about this guy for a while now, though I’d share it with it, my hope is that this could somehow inspire you and lead to a path of self-realisation.

Ben Casnocha: Comcate Founder

Ben Casnocha started his entrepreneurial endeavors at the age of 12, while being in 6th grade. he’s now 21 and is the founder of ComCate, a company that provides tools to local governments to interact with their customers. In the following podcast Ben talks to Vic about his journey so far and where he is headed in the realms of entrepreneurship.

Ben is currently on a one year break before college, which he is utilizing to travel the world and write his book.

Ben is now, 21 and has 14 people working under him to assure that ComCate operates smoothly.

ComCate is now one of the leaders in software and IT support for government agencies all over the United States, and Ben shows no signs of slowing down. It’s scary to think just how far he might go after graduating college and being able to “really” focus some attention on his company.

It is amazing to think of what a motivated 12 year old can do.

He started the company based on a sixth grade technology class project when he was just 12 years of age while he attended the Town School for Boys, a popular school in San Francisco.

Since then, several dozen clients from small to mid-sized cities are ringing up annual revenue of around $750,000 for his company.

Hope you were inspired in some way, continue to read or listen to "Think and Grow rich" by Napoleon Hill.

Till next time.

"Does it really Matter"

Hello, you’re probably expecting me to post some next topic on the blog, but instead i will be sharing something very useful.

But while browsing the internet, I have stumbled across a great website that has some detailed information that most young and aspiring entrepreneurs might want some information about.

It covers students from college, university and also young adults, even those that are not planning to go to university.

Wow, i think this podcast is explosive, i totally love, i love it.

Here is the link.

Let me know if it is helpful and discuss it in the group or my blog.
Till next time.
Start to discover "your hidden potential"

Ultimately, if you're not doing what you love, you're not going to be fulfilled. Sure, to make money, you have to be tough, you have to have some smarts and a little luck would help, but the bottom line is: You have to love what you do.

Go for it

Sorry I took longer than expected to write, even though I was kind of giving you enough time to digest the last post about the “Synecdoche New York”, but I hope my “Quote of the Day” has been helpful, because really, what is the point, if it is not inspiring you.

From your feedbacks, I will try and write my blogs as concise as possible.

Most of the things I tried to get across to you in the last post were that, we all have this inner yearning for succeed, achievement, but we lack the initiative to maximize the true potential that lies within us, Because of situations that holds us back.

Those things that varies from childhood’s experiences, relationships, friendships, failures, misconceptions, self-realisation and others but I do believe we can get pass the stage.

One of the ways I believe to move from that stage is to talk with like-minded people, you know the people that can really motivate and inspire you in taking on that situation head strong.

Also, It is better to go with your gut, now think about it, about if Thomas Edison has let other situation weigh him down, but no, instead, he used situations like this to bring out the best in him, drawing out his inner motivation, using words of inspiration to inspire himself also” I have not failed, I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work”, although think it through, don’t fight it, go with it. Even if you don’t know exactly how it is going to work out embrace the idea and try to see it through to its full potential.

During the last five years, so much ideas have come my way, some which I have ignored totally, ideas that could be booming now, but oh well, we all have to move on, but also I have ideas in the past two years where I have had that ‘gut feeling’, followed it and it turned out to be a dead-end, but by going with that idea it led me to have another idea which was better. I guess it bring sense to the quote saying “There is light at the end of the tunnel”.

Don’t be afraid to drop your old ideas for a new better one. Sometimes each new idea is just a stepping stone to that ultimate idea. Drop the average for the best.

Remember to continue reading "Think and Grow rich" by "Napoleon Hill" or get yourself the audio version , if you want a copy of the either, do not hesitate to contact me or any questions relating to the post.

Synecdoche, New York

This Movie is a masterpiece.

Many of you would be wondering if I am writing reviews on movies, don’t worry I am not, not at this moment at least, although I am a movie fanatic.

So you’re wondering, what the hell is there to learn from this movie.
An open-minded person that has watched it will probably say, “Yes this movie is in a league of its own”, a whole different existence.
Someone that went to the Cinema on a bad date would say yeah its aite.

I probably could not summarise or give you in-depth conclusion on this movie, maybe because I don’t know how to , or maybe I just can’t be bothered and I would rather focus on the part that touched me, or just maybe it wouldn't matter anyway because I think it will mean different things to different people.

I would say this is the kind of movie, you either love or don’t

I am not saying watching this movie makes you any smarter or wiser, or just because you watched it your kind of smarter that the rest of the world, or the people in the world, but if you truly appreciate it, it will affect you deeply, giving you a brutal realism and honesty, it has to be one of the most deeply moving movies I've seen in a long time, although till I finished watching it, I still dint know who Charlie Kaufman was or his previous projects, so it was of little surprise when I realised that he was the main man behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, All films that I truly admire.

Let’s me make it clear that this movie will not be for everyone, But if you're willing to go into it with an open mind, you might just find yourself amazed.
Maybe, the reason why I like it so much is because it is full of the uncomfortable, brave truths about what it means to be human, and it goes places most movies don't dare to.
It took me a night just to come up with my own conclusion on the movie.

In fact, this film made me uneasy because of how much everyone can relate to it.

The movie suggests that too many of us spend too much time trying to make sense of the world and not enough time living in it. We pull back in loneliness and fear when faced with things bigger than ourselves rather than turning to those who can actually help, namely the other human beings with whom we share our time on this planet.

The Movies goes everywhere from Illness, death, transience, love, relationships, passion, devotion, art, theatre, identity, hope, several topics touched in a painfully genuine way.

Or does this movie show that bits of life might slip away from you, or be taken from you, when you're not paying attention, “you tell me”.

Do we want things that only fit within our conventional range of pace, dialogue, limitations, and cinematography? Well you need to re-evaluate.

One Moment that left in admiration has to be when the preacher begins to talk, during the burial shot. It was unbelievable, that part summarised everything I needed to understand in this movie.

I have written that part word for word for your thoughts.

The Reverend Says:

Everything is more complicated than you think, you only see a tenth of what its true, they are a million little strings attached to every choice you make, and it can destroy your life, every time you choose.

But maybe you won’t know for 20 years and you may never ever trace it to its source, and you only get one chance to play it out.
Just try and figure out your own divorce and they say there is no faith but there is, it is what you create.

Even though the world goes on for eons and eons, you are only here for a fraction of a fraction of second, Most of your time is spent being dead or not yet born.

But while alive, you wait in vein wasting years for a phone call or a letter, or a look from someone or something to make it all right but it never comes.

It seems to but it doesn’t really that why you spend your time in vague, regret or vague or hopes that something good will come along, something meaningful, to make you feel connected, to make you feel whole, something to make you feel loved.

And the truth is “I feel so angry”, the truth is I feel so fucking sad, the truth is

I felt so fucking hurt for so fucking long. And just for long, I have been pretending that I’m ok; just to get along, just for “I don’t know why, maybe because no-one wants to hear my mystery, because they have their own,


Fuck Everybody.

I hope this analysis, or the movie itself relates to you, gives answers to your questions, and also creates meaningfulness to your curiosities.

Do not hesitate to leave and thoughts relating to this post.

Till next time, Have a wonderful day.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
