So.... Today's better than yesterday. #shitshow #smallBusiness #BARRIERSTOENTRY #murphyslaw
Entrepreneur.com disagrees with #onlinedating websites as profitable businesses for the reasons below. What are your thoughts on this from an African standpoint.
.
.
1. The market is already oversaturated with #competitors - in the West, there are tonnes of #dating apps and sites. According to statistics, 1000 dating sites are launched every year.

2. This #business suffers from the 'Facebook model' startup problem - before you can generate real good #revenue from #advertising, you need millions of users, such that the big brands can choose to advertise with you.
.
.
3. #BarriersToEntry are difficult to establish - the idea is very replicable, anyone can set one up.
.
.
4. Separation from existing major #businesses is small - the lines are blurred between #socialnetworking and dating platforms.
.
.
5. Business area is fraught with misrepresentation - while some perceive dating apps as 'hook up' apps, 40 percent of frequent site users are already married. If your new idea has that same potential for misuse, is it worth the risk to your reputation? .
.
6. The #customer #valueproposition is difficult to quantify - Investors and customers alike want to see return that can be measured against the costs. .
.
7. Beware of #highturnover and minimal loyalty situations - Dating services lose #customers quickly when they find a match -- or when they don’t find a match. Look for a business opportunity with low customer churn potential.
.
.
8. Steer clear of business areas that are not squeaky clean -  Dating sites are tagged as having historically high failure rates and a hint of business #hustle, so they are avoided by professional #investors. Others in this category would include online gambling, debt collection and work-at-home offerings. Your new opportunity should avoid these qualms.
.
.
We agree with most of the points but not necessarily all, as we have barely scratched the surface in #Africa. What are your thoughts?

Forget everyone else, we're talking about you. The trick is not to waste time looking for one but to build one yourself.
.
If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, immediately and without ceremony. Now you are free.
.
Schooling is fun and technical skills are helpful but strength is where everyone repairs in a storm.
.
All you need for schooling is to sign a note. All you need for technical skills is to do time.
.
Strength is different. Strength requires specific physical inputs. Strength does not unlock for just any key. Strength is vouchsafed to the locksmith.
.
Strength is evident only in the doing. What a tragedy to appear strong to the untrained eye and draw the mistaken conclusion that one is therefore strong. One needs trial by nature, not trial by men.
.
Schooling, skill, evident strength: which is in shortest supply?
.
When the hurricane lands we are grateful to shelter a few others.

We have been working with Adopt Change since 2014 to help bring attention to the broken out of home care system.  While reunification is encouraged with birth families it is not always in the best interests of children in out of home care, and instead of being given a chance to find a permanent, loving home, they are bouncing from home to home, some as many as twenty times before turning 18. We are pleased to have worked with Lanai Scarr and the @dailytelegraph to produce this story, highlighting some of the bizarre barriers withholding at risk kids from permanency and love. #adoption  #fosterfamilies #fostercare #childprotectioncrisis #homeforlife #adoptchange #adoptionbarriers #NCPW #ausgov #nswgov #barrierstoentry #childwelfare #familygoals #childrenfirst #theprhub #prhub #bmi #weightloss

It takes a combination of grit, insanity, and #ALCHEMY to be an entrepreneur. Let's talk about the latter...the process of transforming a thing with less value into one with more value. The "thing" is life lemons, level of experience, bank account, social class, or self worth...this is irrelevant because regardless of what one may start with, the alchemist will explore, research, and test a theory ad nauseum until value is added. I had ZERO experience as a barista or manager in a food/beverage establishment; instead of seeing this as a barrier to entry, I considered everything a possibility and spent 6 months creating recipes in my kitchen. The bias and judgments from experience did not apply to me!  The only true barrier is the perception of having nothing. Hold on to your lemons and one by one, transform its matter into gold.

Restaurantvlle, the magazine of the Texas Restaurant Association. I am pleased to be their marketing columnist. Because of my other firm, Benchmark, I have a wide background in marketing and Statistics. In fact I may be the only food critic in the US with a PhD in Statistics.
The column focuses on the one area that most restaurant owners, chefs and managers are not well versed in. And with the competition as ferocious as it is in Austin, restaurants need to exploit every competitive advantage and marketing is perhaps the most important and least understood.

Excerpt from my panel @DandDBuilding today: Evolution Transforming Light into Design. "The struggles that I have found have been more about people not wanting to deal with the technology because they are not sure that they'll be able to work it correctly all the time." #ddbfallmarket2016 #technology #homeautomation #lighting #design #expert #panel @crestronhq #barrierstoentry #userfriendly #challenges

Never shame someone who earns an honest wage.  That destroys the work ethic and fosters entitlement.
