  • Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Steve Wozniak

    Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Steve Wozniak

    Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Steve Wozniak by Evan Carmichael       Today we’re going to look at how an entrepreneur whose father didn’t believe he would ever reach his goals set out to follow his passion for computers and built one of the largest companies in the world, quickly proving his father wrong. This is the story of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success.   “Don’t think about the money you don’t have. Rather, what can you do with what you do have?”- Steve Wozniak   Stephen “Woz” Wozniak (born August 11, 1950) is a Polish American computer engineer and programmer who co-founded Apple Inc. While in school, Wozniak tapped into his intense passion for computers and started designing computers on paper based on the theories that he knew. He told his father that he would one day own his own computer. When his father said “Well Steve, they cost as much as a house,” Wozniak replied, “Well, I’ll live in an apartment.”   Wozniak didn’t have friends growing up. He spent his time between his schoolwork and his experiments. Things changed, however, when he met Steve Jobs. With Jobs’ ability to convince people to give them parts, Wozniak went to work on building the Apple I. In 1976, Wozniak and Jobs started Apple together with the goal of making computers a tool everyone could use, not just big corporations.   Today, Apple has over $100 Billion in revenues and is one of the largest 50 companies in the world. In 2000, Wozniak was inducted into the National Hall of Fame and has received honorary degrees from multiple universities. His plan was never to start a company but rather to design computers. Luckily for the world, he decided to do both.     Action Item #1: Don’t Think About the Money You Don’t Have   Action Item #2: Focus   Action Item #3: Partner Up     True Story   Wozniak sold his HP calculator and Steve Jobs sold his Volkswagon van raising $1,300 to fund the launch of Apple. Jobs told Wozniak that even if they were not successful they could at least tell their grandkids they had their own company.

  • Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Pierre Omidyar

    Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Pierre Omidyar

    Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Pierre Omidyar by Evan Carmichael     Today we’re going to look at how an entrepreneur followed his passion for computers and in one weekend created the code for a new website that would go on to become one of the most well known sites in the world. This is the story of eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success.   “It is not really work if you are having fun…that was the case with me.” – Pierre Omidyar   Pierre Omidyar (born June 21, 1967) is an American entrepreneur and philanthropist/economist, and the founder/chairman of eBay. Growing up he became fascinated with computers and often skipped gym glass in school to play on their computers. After graduating high school and university, he went to work for an Apple subsidiary to develop software for the Macintosh. Omidyar soon felt the entrepreneur itch and wanted to start his own business.   When Omidyar was 28 years old, he stayed in front of his computer for the entire Labour Day long weekend and wrote the original code for eBay. Originally called “Auction Web”, Omidyar wanted to change the name to echobay and drove to Sacramento to register the name. When he arrived, he found echobay was already registered so he decided to go with eBay on the spot instead of having to make a return trip.   Today, eBay has revenues of over $9 billion and Omidyar serves as its Chairman. He has an estimated net worth of $6.7 billion making him the 50th richest person in the world and it all began with one long weekend writing code and launching a new website.   Action Item #1: Just Go For It Action Item #2: Follow Your Passion Action Item #3: Be Nice     True Story   eBay was originally hosted on a website that Omidyar had created with information about the ebola virus. The site originally allowed buyers and sellers to connect for free but as the site grew, he had to charge a small fee. Omidyar hoped that the transaction fees would eventually be enough to cover his website hosting costs.   Quotes   “You should pursue your passion. If you’re passionate about something and you work hard, then I think you will be successful.”   “You have to really believe in what you’re doing, be passionate enough about it so that you will put in the hours and hard work that it takes to actually succeed there, and then you’ll be successful.”   “I was raised with the notion that you can do pretty much do anything you want. I always kind of just went ahead and tried things.”

  • John Paul Caponigro: “The Creative Process”, Photographers at Google

    John Paul Caponigro: “The Creative Process”, Photographers at Google Artist’s creations come out of far more than the activities in their primary medium. How the artist gets there is, perhaps, just as important as where they arrive. This is the creative process rather than the creative product. John Paul Caponigro details the many aspects of his creative process — color, composition, drawing, iphoneography, writing and more. He shows how each discipline and different modes of operating with them contribute to the completion of finished works of art. The resulting synergy is stimulating, enriching, and enlivening. While he shows you that you already know how to write, draw, and photograph, he also shows you how these seemingly separate disciplines and creations combine dynamically to form a single creative process that results in a life’s work. He reveals that the creative process is a process of exploration, a journey of discovery that offers many insights along the way and never ends. You’ll be inspired to try these activities yourself, practicing them in your own ways for your own purposes, as you progress on your own creative journey. Bio John Paul Caponigro is an internationally renowned fine artist. A contributing editor for Digital Photo Pro and a columnist for the Huffington Post, he is the author of Adobe Photoshop Master Class and the DVD series R/Evolution. A highly sought after lecturer, he teaches workshops around the globe. A member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame, a Canon Explorer of Light, an Epson Stylus Pro, and an X-Rite Coloratti, his clients include Adobe, Apple, and Kodak.

  • Nilofer Merchant: Got a meeting? Take a walk

Nilofer Merchant has been helping to grow businesses — from Fortune 500s to web startups — for 20 years.

  • Bryan Franklin – The Most Dangerous Question On Earth

    Bryan Franklin – The Most Dangerous Question On Earth Bryan has coached top level executives at Fortune 1000 companies (including Apple, Logitech, Google, Cisco and LinkedIn) and helped entrepreneurs build their fledgling organizations into success stories–taking them from start-ups to billion dollar-generators (including Interwoven, Ariba, and Cadence). Together with his partner in business and in life, Jennifer, he’s now offers some of the most impactful group experiences available in the planet. These group intensives train entrepreneurs to free themselves financially and spiritually — to transform the way they see themselves and the world, so that the distinction between “career” and “life” dissolves and each human interaction can be both lucrative and fulfilling of purpose. A former student and highly successful coach says this: “Bryan is one of my favorite embodiments of the divine masculine. With all the right amounts of give and take he makes art with his interactions. To interface with Bryan is to dance with your own edge. In his eyes, you befriend all your future and past selves. To be loved by him is to die into who you dream of being.” Bryan’s talk was titled “The most dangerous question on earth” and explored the essential role of paradox in leadership — and how to resolve the apparent conflict between customer focus/intimacy and staying true to who you are — by asking one question that can ruin your life and set you free.
