“The miracle power that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application, and perseverance, under the promptings of a brave determined spirit.” – Mark Twain

  Many motivational experts like to say that leaders are made, not born. I would argue the exact opposite. I believe we are all natural born leaders, but have been deprogrammed along the way. As children, we were natural leaders – curious and humble, always hungry and thirsty for knowledge, with an incredibly vivid imagination; we knew exactly what we wanted, were persistent and determined in getting what we wanted, and had the ability to motivate, inspire, and influence everyone around us to help us in accomplishing our mission. So why is this so difficult to do as adults? What […]

ECommerce Websites for Small Businesses

by Zaida Cadete
In first World countries, the Internet is now a huge part of our everyday life. We use it at work and we use it at home. It is all around us. A person from a First World country would be in a minority if they said they had not paid for anything across the Internet or bought a product or service online through an eCommerce store. One study found that residents in European Nations spent $132 Billion Euros (USD $180 Billion) through eCommerce Websites. In the next 5 years, the amount spent through eCommerce Websites is set to increase by […]

Common Small Business Mistakes

by Zaida Cadete
  When first starting your small business you may not realize that there are mistakes you may make at different stages of your business’ growth that can slowly kill it for months or even years if you don’t watch out for them? These mistakes are not just restricted to the new business owners. Many operating businesses, including those you may think are “successful” because they’ve been around for 10 years, are often still making them and are most likely losing a lot of money and/or wasting a lot of time in the process.

Abe Lincoln : An Extraordinary Leader

by Zaida Cadete
Perhaps noted as one of the greatest United States presidents of all time, Abraham Lincoln’s early life may not have reflected his potential greatness. He failed in business. He lost election to the state legislature, Speaker of the House, nomination for Congress, appointment of land officer, U.S. Senate twice and nomination for Vice President. After those eight major failures, Lincoln was elected President of the United States. How many of us would have kept going like Lincoln did? Many problems that we think of today pale in comparison to what happened in the late 1850’s and middle 1860’s. Lincoln dealt […]

10 Reasons Why Friendliness Is A Leadership Necessity

by Zaida Cadete
by Brent Filson We’ve heard it many times, “It’s a dog eat dog world.” The trouble is, some leaders actually believe it. They conduct themselves like the alpha dog in a pack, holding sway through intimidation. This instinctive behavior helps insure survival in a dog world, but applied to the human world of organizational dynamics, it can lead to disaster. Alpha dog leadership can eventually turn out to be destructive to the people, their organization, and the leaders themselves. To use another common metaphor, “That dog won’t hunt.” After all, leaders do nothing more important than get results; and the […]

The perfect example of a goal that people tend to have issues committing to is the New Year resolutions. This is just one of the many personal goals and ideas that you could commit to, however, once you are able to commit to the goal you will be able to see yourself making progress towards success. Some of the reasons why people are unable to commit to something is because they are not looking at the work and energy that it takes to succeed. Also, a lot of people do not feel like committing because of the pressure that they […]

Starting a small business is the dream of many people. However, to make that dream a reality, it’s important to understand what it takes to make it happen. There is a lot more to it than you may think, but it’s not so difficult that it can’t be done.  You need to be truthful with yourself when thinking about starting a business. Are you able to motivate yourself if you don’t have a boss to answer to? Are you willing to work more hours than you ever did at a job? How will you come up with the money to […]
