Members Helping Members - Educating, Informing, Supporting
Wednesday, April 9th, 2014 we will be joined by a panel of local leaders in early stage investing. You will learn where to find money, how to get in front of the money people, and how to pitch perfect every time! We don't stress funding too much in EOK since most members have lots of work to do before looking for money. But...when it's time to raise, you need to know how. Please RSVP early as we have a limited number of seats.
Recently something terribly obvious--yet powerful--occurred to me: If you want to achieve things that no one else has done, you need to do things no one else does.
So, I thought, who achieves things that very few do? I made a list of the top 10 entrepreneurs that I learn from daily. Then I thought, which things are they doing that could really help more people? When I emailed the idea to my Fast Company editor, she came back with something I found valuable:
“One of the problems that crops up is that a lot of people get back with “I love Twitter, Dropbox, and Evernote!” Those are great tools, but might not add that much value for our readers.”
I thought that observation was spot-on. So instead, I asked my favorite entrepreneurs their absolute favorite, yet very little-known…Continue
I've always been eminently opposed to the idea of "networking". I've always associated networking with "fake" or a "false sense of value". You're forcing a relationship...just doesn't feel right.
BUT...members of EOK keep saying this is the best "networking" organization they've ever experienced. So, I say...hmmmm...maybe networking isn't a bad thing. Maybe there is a right way to network. For EOK, it happens VERY organically and over a long period of time. You meet someone, you see them again at a pub night, you see them at a crowdsourcing event and hear some of their ideas, then you see them at a member spotlight. All of the sudden, they become a real person with great ideas and an interesting story. And you think...this…Continue
I have been using Wordpress for a few years. When people hear the name "Wordpress" they typically think of a blog. While Wordpress is a blogging platform, it's so much more than that. I use Wordpress as an essential part of my business on a regular basis. If you're an entrepreneur, and you don't know, or won't consider Wordpress as your CMS, or content management system, you're really missing out.
Wordpress is Great For Lean Startups (Low Cost)
I can't think of a quicker way to get a site up and running than with Wordpress. I have shared hosting, which is fine for smaller sites. With Bluehost as my hosting company, I can host a ton of Wordpress sites for the cost of the domain name, and my $3-$5 per month hosting plan. I am a web developer, and I can build my own custom responsive Wordpress themes, but even if you don't know how to code, there are hundreds, if not thousands of…Continue
