Vision for your future success is EVERYTHING!

Berkonomics

Years ago, as a panelist at an entrepreneurial seminar, I watched as over fifty aspiring young entrepreneurs filed past a microphone, each tasked with making a thirty second pitch to the panelists of professional investors. I love absolute statements. And this is one of my favorites. You’re at the ignition stage of your newest business venture. Of course, you have a vision for what you will do to change the world.

Please learn this: “Noses in; fingers out!”

Berkonomics

I first heard this expression in a governance seminar for a non-profit higher educational board upon which I sit, years ago. Many of us have someone who reports directly to us and who supervises others in return. If that fits, well then, this one is for you.

Do you offer a clear deliverable , best suited for a particular segment of customers or clients, that aligns with their near term goals ?

Does a VCs Culture Really Matter? The Upfront Story

Both Sides of the Table

We wanted to be able to have regular educational meetings, breakfast gatherings, seminars or even just cocktail parties.
