Advice from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos

You don’t choose your passions; your passions choose you. Be stubborn on your vision, but flexible on details. Failure is necessary for invention. Take pride in choices, not gifts. Be right a lot.

 

One of the reasons that Jeff has been so successful is that he has built a shopping experience of trust, convenience, speed of delivery,  and a user-friendly website. He started the membership revolution before it was a thing! After building his base and standing by his core company values, he then expanded the business model adding state-of-the-art technology, new services and just about any product you could imagine to the business portfolio.  Amazon has changed the way I shop and has done so for over 100+ million other prime members! We can all follow his lead and be successful in our own business. Never be afraid to fail. Failure gets you that much closer to your dreams and getting it right. Never give up!  I hope this inspires someone today!

The Electric Scooter Rental Business is all the rage and coming to a city near you

In January Uber partnered with the bike-sharing startup JUMP and lauched Uber Bike, which lets Uber riders book JUMP bikes via the Uber app. The company recently acquired Jump stating that they see the Uber app as moving from just being about car sharing to really helping the consumer get from A to B in the most affordable, dependable,  & most convenient way.

E-bikes, of course, are not the only way to get around town these days. This year, we’ve seen a number of startups launch electric scooters. The most popular, Bird scooters has been very popular with beach goers in Californina offering dockless electric scooters, capable of speeds up to 15 mph, available through a scooter-share service using the smartphone app. You can now rent scooters for $1 plus $0.15/min and the business is booming!

The scooter-share startup, Bird, was launched in September 2017 by Travis VanderZanden, who was previously an executive with Uber and Lyft ride sharing. The company started in Los Angeles, and is now offered in many large cities across the United States. It is amazing to see how rapidly they have expanded.

They also offer income earning opportunites just like Uber, via the app with the opportunity for what they call, ‘Chargers’. They are growing so rapidly, workers are in high demand. Chargers have said that you can easily make $20-30 per hour working for Bird in what they have quoted, “Earn while you sleep”, because they pick them up and charge them at home overnight or during the day as needed.

I am totally amazed on a daily basis with the ideas and business start-ups that evolve and love to share the news with you!

This 6 year old kid made over $11 million in one year playing with toys – Youtube Stars

 This 6-year-old kid made over $11 million in one year playing with toys!

On most days, I watch youtube as my source of entertainment and my little grandsons discovered they like it too! One of their favorite channels to watch is Ryan toy reviews. They could sit for hours watching him play with trains and opening up egg surprises.

Being the researcher that I am, I wanted to find out more about the channel and was shocked to discover that not only did they have over 14 million subscribers on this one channel,  but it was reported that this kid made $11 million in revenue between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, just playing with toys.  I pulled the stats off social blade at the time of writing this post and found that his channel ranks #2 in the United States and #3 in the world. Here are the projected earnings that I pulled as of today.

Ryans mother stated that she posted a new video each day but they tend to do all of their recordings on the weekends to allow him to focus on learning during the week.  I am continually amazed at the creativity of the entrepreneurs that we have today and how they are using the internet to earn income.  What a wonderful example of how a person can earn residual income 24 hours a day no matter your age. It helps to have creative parents!

How a DIY Yogurt Company Started a Successful Business – Entrepreneur Spotlight

How a DIY Yogurt Company Started a Successful Business – Entrepreneur Spotlight

Entrepreneur Spotlight DIY yogurt.jpg

I created this website to inspire people to consider starting their own business and to help inspire entrepreneurs by providing information and sharing helpful tools that I have discovered that can excel their businesses to the next level.

Today, I would like to feature a company that I recently discovered that was founded by an entrepreneur that is currently based out of the Raleigh, N.C. area.

This business was started by Julie Feickert, owner of Cultures for Health, a company that empowers consumers to create their own foods. Julie had to make a decision once having her first child on going back to work or to find a way to start a side business to enable her to spend more time with her family. She had been researching natural food and making her own cultured and fermented foods from scratch,  like yogurt and making her own bread. She found that it was not easy to locate starter cultures and that this information, a skill-set passed down for generations, was nearly a lost art.  This inspired her to start a website where she would share instructional videos and sell supplies. This proved to be a very profitable business. This is a niche that most people know nothing about and a part of the fast-growing global probiotics industry projected to reach $37 billion by 2018.  The key to starting a successful business is filling a need and helping solve problems for customers.  Her business does this well. So many people have special dietary needs due to allergies, among other issues and are searching for foods that help keep them healthy and many of us are concerned about the safety of the ingredients in our foods.

Julie is a self-taught master of digital marketing and has built her company to employing over thirty people.  After a visit to Raleigh in 2015, she decided to move her business from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Morrisville, which is located around the RDU airport.  She has been featured in many of the major magazines and her business has grown by leaps and bounds. Congratulations on your success and for helping our generation keep this lost art alive while helping people learn how to lead healthier lives.
