How Los Angeles Startups Succeed On A Guerrilla Approach To Everyday Problems

Los Angeles is a target-rich and intensely competitive arena for burgeoning startups of every profile to vie for investors within, but the process behind conceiving a standout company plays out remarkably similarly to how a successful entrepreneurial enterprise would evolve in any other market, great or small. Start with a job that needs done, preferably one nobody is already doing or something no one has done particularly well. Next, draw on your own experience or compile a network of people who do possess the relevant know-how to get the job done like no one has before. Once you have your […]

4 Things Every Budding Entrepreneur Should Do After Arriving In Las Vegas

Exchanging ideas with fellow entrepreneurs against the backdrop of a Las Vegas trade show or seminar talk can demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt how inventive the human mind can be when it sorts out information away from deliberate thought. Debate and deliberation happen in board rooms. Innovation sparks as far from them as possible. There’s a reason so many innovative industry-leading companies spirit their leading decision-makers and creative minds away to retreats often as distantly removed from a corporate atmosphere as possible: the theory behind consistently cultivating transformative ideas dictates that few forces can be quite so counterproductive […]

Baby boomers and their parents bonded over the three-season original series that ran on CBS from 1966 to 1969, uplifting Capt. James T. Kirk and the original crew of the U.S.S.

The 1987 debut of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” began an 18-year renaissance for the sci-fi institution that spawned three additional new […]

How To Train Your Mind To Be Creative And Gain A Competitive Edge

We reach adulthood understanding creativity as a capricious lightning bolt, some willful force of nature that haphazardly strikes only who and when it sees fit with no comforting method to its madness. People either accept that chaotic notion or perceive ideas as manifestations of some cerebral voodoo, a rapport with some inscrutable ether that an individual is either blessed with or bereft of, a real-world analog to the Force. As it turns out, reasonable minds could differ as to which concept lands farther from the truth. I would more closely compare any idea to interest paid on continuous principal investments […]
