Steve Jobs: The Ultimate Revolutionist in Technology… Life & Lessons

As last week was Global Entrepreneurship Week (Or GEW for short!) I thought it was only write to make my inspirational person post (more of which you can find here!) about an entrepreneur. So who other then the greatest entrepreneur and inventor of the last 50 years, Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs: Biography

Steven Paul Jobs was born February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California. Soon after his birth to Joanne Schieble and Abdulfattah “John” Jandali, two university graduate students, Steve was given up for adoption and soon adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs after they promised to his biological parents to put him through college.

Steve was named after his new parents, Jobs and lived with them in Mountain View within California’s Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley was later to become the world’s biggest tech hub, with a little help from Steve and his teenage friends. » Read more..

eBook Writers – A Demonstration of Creation & Entrepreneurship Entwined?

Personally, I felt nothing but reluctance towards the development of the E-reader. I wasn’t quite spitting at the Kindle adverts, I hardly watch television enough to know of them, but in the suggestion that I get an e-reader for Christmas, I was close to spitting.

And why? Because In my eyes there is nothing better than coming across an old library. Nothing better than the smell of new book and the cracking spine of an old one.

But the truth is, technology is a big part of our generation’s lives. And it’s something myself, along with the millions of other young writers out there, will need to deal with in their time. » Read more..

Entrepreneurship & Creation – Are Books, Films & Music Products of a Creative or Entrepreneurial Mind?

Entrepreneurship for the Creative Mind…

Global Entrepreneurship week may have been something that slipped your mind this year. Being honest, it’s something that has slipped my mind, every year. But it’s not something you should rule out of consideration, if you’re a budding artist, musician or filmmaker.

Directions of Entrepreneurship

Being a creative person, I’ll admit, I always associated Entrepreneurs with businessmen. People in suits with bulging briefcases, shiny shoes and that of Entrepreneurship week never crossed. But I’d like to take this opportunity to put my hands up and say I was wrong and to pitch to you a question that has been on my mind for quite some time.

Can the writer, the artist, the filmmaker, all roles associated with the creative branch of the success tree be branded as Entrepreneurial? And equally, can the businessman, the computer whiz, the economics enforcer be classed as a creator?

The truth is, Entrepreneurs, cannot be branded at all. » Read more..

Book Review: Duncan Bannatyne – Riding The Storm

His Journey to the Brink and Back

This week’s Global Entrepreneurship Week (as you’ll know if you read my post on Monday) and having finished my latest read from Duncan Bannatyne last week, I thought a review might be due.

Duncan, as you’ll find out below and in the book is an incredibly successful, yet realistic guy. He’s achieved a lot in his life and has been through many high and lows to do so. Duncan and his business acumen has always been inspiration to me, yet I think his success and his journey to it can be of inspiration and value for any self-developer; entrepreneurial or not.

Myself & Entrepreneurship

Ever since a child, entrepreneurship and business has fascinated me. My step-dad ran a medium sized family business and to begin with (at the age of just 10) I was fascinated by the prospect of entrepreneurial activity in the property market; creating and building countless plans and drawings on property developing computer programs. » Read more..
