How to Tap Into Your Inner Sales Hustle

You may be more of a gifted pitch person than you realize. February 28, 2020 4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Building a business is largely about sales. Sure, you have to have a passion for what you do, a great product or service and effective operational systems. But unless you have customers and sales, you’re out of business. Still, lots of business owners say they hate sales. They love product development or introducing something new, but they may not enjoy selling or feel hey’re not very good at it. However, a founder/business owner is typically the best evangelist for the company, because her passion for the solution that she offers is what inspired her to start the business in the first place. So, what are the keys to success with sales, even if you don’t think you have a natural “gift of gab”?   A Little Reflection Goes a Long […]

Here’s How Much Membership Will Cost You at 12 Coworking Spaces

Here’s a peek behind the pricing curtain, plus tips for lessening the financial burden on your business. February 28, 2020 7 min read Coworking spaces aren’t just taking over the real estate market. They’re transforming the way we work, and that transformation comes at a (literal) cost.  Since 2010, the coworking and flexible real estate sector has grown an average of 23 percent per year; in fact, it’s responsible for four billion square feet of office space across 54 major metro areas, according to real estate firm CBRE.  In the U.S., over half a million people worked from coworking spaces in 2017, and that number is expected to double by 2022.  Yes, coworking memberships are tax-deductible, but they’ll still set you back a pretty penny. The majority of coworking companies don’t list fully transparent pricing on their websites, and even if they do list a general breakdown, you can’t know […]

3 Ways to Create Successful Habits

Time to stop lamenting what you “should” have done. February 27, 2020 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. “I should lose some weight.” “I should spend time focusing on that project.” “I should be able to speak and have others want to listen.” How much time do you spend “should”-ing your way through life? It’s easy to internalize goals and dreams, but following through is often unattainable. Why? We want more from our lives, our careers and our influence, but many fall short of our goals. It’s not that we don’t truly want to reach them, but rather that we aren’t willing to raise our standards enough to create real, lasting change. When we commit to raising our standards, we begin to expect more from ourselves. We demand better outcomes and become willing to do the hard work. By raising our expectations, we form new habits.

Interior and Exterior House Painter – Business Ideas

Startup Costs: $2,000 – $10,000Home Based: Can be operated from home.Part Time: Can be operated part-time.Franchises Available? No Online Operation? No THE BRIEF A fresh coat of new paint on a home interior never gets old; there’s always a new color trend to try, or the latest technique written up in the shelter magazines. And the look is so fresh. But few homeowners beyond their college years want to do the heavy lifting here themselves. Too much of a mess! Too many potential mistakes that could permanently mar a beautiful wall or piece of woodwork!  “Painters work indoors and outdoors in many different work environments,” notes the Bureau of Labor Statistics. “Painting is physically demanding and requires a lot of bending, kneeling, reaching, and climbing.” And for entrepreneurs going into this profession the pay may be stable but not particularly highly compensated: The BLS reports that in 2018, the median pay was $38,940 or […]

Court Rules YouTube Does Not Illegally Censor Conservative Content

Circuit Judge Margaret McKeown said that despite YouTube’s ubiquity as a platform, it was still a private forum, not a ‘state actor’ that could be regulated by the First Amendment. February 27, 2020 3 min read This story originally appeared on PC Mag The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle has upheld a ruling that Google’s video sharing platform YouTube does not illegally censor conservative content. As reported by Reuters, a lawsuit against Google was brought by Prager University, a conservative non-profit organization run by talk show host Dennis Prager. “PragerU” uploads a number of YouTube videos on conservative talking points, with titles including “The Market Will Set You Free,” “Is The National Anthem Racist?” and “White Leftists Act Like Racists.” PragerU claimed that YouTube opposed its political views and therefore tagged a number of videos talking about abortion, gun rights, and Islam under its “Restricted Mode,” which Google describes as a […]

Reddit’s CEO Explosively Describes TikTok as ‘Parasitic’ and ‘Spyware’

The US government is scrutinizing TikTok’s handling of user data closely, and many government agencies have banned their staff from using it because of its Chinese roots. February 27, 2020 2 min read This story originally appeared on Business Insider The CEO of Reddit slammed TikTok, the short-form video app that has taken Generation Z by storm, at an event on Wednesday. TikTok is the newest big challenge to big American social media companies like Facebook, and is owned by Chinese tech firm ByteDance. Per TechCrunch, Huffman disputed whether Silicon Valley had anything it could learn from TikTok. “Maybe I’m going to regret this, but I can’t even get to that level of thinking with them,” Huffman said. “Because I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic, that it’s always listening, the fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like […]

20 Signs You’re Destined to Become a Millionaire

“Are you the kind of person who sees an opportunity and then takes action to take advantage of it? If so, congratulations, because it’s that kind of action-oriented mind-set that can propel you to financial freedom,” writes Todd Campbell, author of Your Guide to Better Stock Picks, in a piece for The Motley Fool. “For example, it’s been proven time and time again that long-term investing can produce significantly more wealth than short term trading, yet many Americans fail to make the most of their best long-term investment vehicle: their workplace retirement plan,” Campbell continues. “Do you contribute to your workplace retirement plan? If so, do you contribute 10 percent of your income? More? Less? Considering that someone who contributes 10 percent of their $40,000 in income to a 401(k) plan at a 6 percent return has $311,572 more after 35 years than one who contributes 3 percent, under-utilizing retirement […]
