  • Business Ideas – 3 Lessons from George Foreman

    Business Ideas – 3 Lessons from George Foreman

    Business Ideas – 3 Lessons from George Foreman by Evan Carmichael     Today we’re going to look at how a high school dropout who was constantly in trouble with the law turned his life around and started to believe him himself. He would go on to become two-time former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion and multimillionaire entrepreneur. This is the story of boxing great George Foreman and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success.   “Learn to sell and you’ll never starve.”- George Foreman   George “Big George” Foreman (born January 10, 1949) is an Olympic gold medalist, two-time former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, and entrepreneur. A high school dropout, as a teenager, Foreman didn’t know how to read or write. He took to the streets and got into trouble by picking pockets and mugging people. His sister told him “You’ll never be anything.”   After finding himself on the run from the police one night and digging himself in a pile of mud to avoid their dogs finding him, Foreman decided he had to change his life. He enrolled in a job skills training program for youth and began learning how to read and write. He later also learned how to box and entered into amateur competitions so he could send $50 home to his mother every month. After a year and a half of learning to box he entered into the Olympic Games and won the gold medal. He went on to win the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship twice.   After twice retiring from professional boxing, Foreman became an entrepreneur and toured the world selling George Foreman Grills. In 2002 alone, the company earned $922 million from selling the grills. Foreman would go on to earn 3 times more money from the grills than throughout his entire career as a boxer. He has also moved on to selling TV shows, clothing, books, and Indy Car racing teams.   Action Item #1: Learn How to Sell Action Item #2: Get People to Like You Action Item #3: Keep Trying Until it Works     It’s rare that entrepreneurs make it big off their first idea. And even if they do, the idea has changed many times from what they thought they were going to create. Failing is a part of business. The key is to get started. Too many people don’t start because they’re afraid of failing. You will know failure – keep going. Fail smarter the next time and eventually success will be yours.   Foreman isn’t afraid of failing in business. He’s done everything from specialty shoes made for diabetics to a health-food restaurant chain to a reality television series. He’s willing to try almost anything if he thinks it might be a good opportunity and it’s something he believes in. As long as the business is something he can feel proud of and won’t damage his integrity, Foreman is willing to stretch his brand to almost anything. You never know until you […]

  • Business Ideas: 3 Business Ideas from Estee Lauder’s Success

    Business Ideas: 3 Business Ideas from Estee Lauder’s Success

    Business Ideas: 3 Business Ideas from Estee Lauder’s Success by Evan Carmichael   Today we’re going to look at how a girl grew up with no money and lived in a small apartment with her parents and her eight siblings. She would go on to become the only woman on Time magazine’s list of the 20 most influential business geniuses of the century. This is the story of the woman super entrepreneur Estee Lauder and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from her success.   “If you don’t sell, it’s not the product that’s wrong, it’s you… I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.” – Estee Lauder     Action Item #1: Don’t Stop at the First No   Lauder was known for her unwavering persistence. When she was trying to expand her European market she arranged a meeting with the manager of Galleries Lafayette, Europe’s largest department store. When the manager said no she ‘accidentally’ spilled her perfume samples on the floor and the store customers started asking how they could buy some of the fragrance. The manager had to give her a contract.   According to Lauder: “I have never worked a day in my life without selling. If I believe in something, I sell it and I sell it hard… If you have a goal, if you want to be successful, if you really want to do it and become another Estee Lauder, you’ve got to work hard, you’ve got to stick to it and you’ve got to believe in what you’re doing.”   Action Item #2: Love What You Do   Lauder loved her products so much that she paid attention to every little detail. When she got her first deal with Saks Fifth Avenue she stood at the entrance door for an entire week and watched women come in. Nine times out of ten, the first place their eyes would wander would be to the right. Not to the left. Not straight ahead. So she asked for her product to be placed on the right.   According to Lauder: “I love my product. I love to touch the creams, smell them, look at them, carry them with me. A person has to love her harvest if she’s to expect others to love it.”   Action Item #3: Sell, Sell, Sell   When Lauder was first getting started she didn’t have money to spend on advertising and promotions so she invested her time into product demos. She began at salons, hotels, subway stations, and even people on the street, offering them a free makeover and the chance to buy her products. She eventually moved to sell to the big department stores but it all began with a $0 budget and her grinding out sale after sale.   According to Lauder: “If you put the product into the customer’s hands, it will speak for itself if it’s something of quality… If you don’t sell, it’s not […]

  • 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.”

  • Lisa Bu: How books can open your mind

    Lisa Bu: How books can open your mind What happens when a dream you’ve held since childhood … doesn’t come true? As Lisa Bu adjusted to a new life in the United States, she turned to books to expand her mind and create a new path for herself. She shares her unique approach to reading in this lovely, personal talk about the magic of books. Lisa Bu has built a career helping people find great stories to listen to. Now she tells her own story. WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER? At TED’s annual staff retreat, everyone has to get up and talk about something — either about work, or about something interesting from their own lives. In fall 2012, our own Lisa Bu prepared a talk about her love of reading. And our quiet, funny and efficient Content Distribution Manager simply brought down the house, with a story that’s too good not to share. We are thrilled and proud that Lisa is the first TED staffer ever to be invited to speak on the mainstage at the TED Conference. Born and raised in Hunan, China, Lisa Bu has been with TED since 2011. Before that, she spent seven years as a talk show producer and a digital media content director at Wisconsin Public Radio. She’s also a computer programmer, with a PhD in journalism and an MBA in information systems from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as a BA in Chinese from Nanjing University in China.

  • Maria Bezaitis: The surprising need for strangeness

    Maria Bezaitis: The surprising need for strangeness In our digital world, social relations have become mediated by data. Without even realizing it, we’re barricading ourselves against strangeness — people and ideas that don’t fit the patterns of who we already know, what we already like and where we’ve already been. A call for technology to deliver us to what and who we need, even if it’s unfamiliar. A principal engineer at Intel, Maria Bezaitis focuses on how constellations of personal data can form new business models. WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER? Maria Bezaitis examines the social and cultural landscape, charting new directions for technology innovation within it. At Intel, her work focuses on personal data and how it develops relationally – and what this will mean in terms of new business models, the development of new devices and interfaces, and the creation of better security technologies. Maria joined Intel in June 2006 to direct the People and Practices Research Group. She also played a leadership role at the cutting-edge social research and design organizations, E-Lab and Sapient Corporation. A longtime literature student, Bezaitis finished her Ph.D at Duke University in French Literature.
