Defining yourself in an entrepreneurial venture. Part II

Take this post with a grain of salt, it is over exagerated, but exageration improves understanding some say..

Elevate and create resonance, natural selection and Uranium.

if you want to create a change in the world, you need to be able to make people go beyond their comfort zone. People with heavy anxieties often remain in their comfort zone, thus they are busy with self-diagnostics and internal dialogues as to why can’t I make it? You can’t make it because you are not realizing your own potential. If you are an entrepreneur and you have the passion to change something, you need to be able to talk to people without being bound by fear.

Quite recently I observed something amazing. Person A elevated Person B to commit a change. B elevated person C to commit the same change and then suddenly Person D elevated Person A. Person A went back to elevate more people and seems to be doing quite well.

B+C also assisted in the elevation of person A by committing the change initially requested. ABCD now all have in common that they know that a slight adjustment to a pattern will resonate and create more change. It created a positive change in one place but a negative change someplace else.

This negative change is not negative. Person B+C changed something that would force people to look again. If you polish a diamond it starts shining, what shines attracts attention. Be prepared for that and know the attention you are getting is  other people seeing the change aswell. Be prepared that many people won’t be able to comprehend that you did something they themselves are unable to do. If anxiety is involved, envy is ensured and you will feel it. Some smart guy once said “If someone offerers you a gift and you do not accept it, then who does the gift belong to?” This was Buddah. Let them keep their Envy. Keep moving forward

Back in 2005 I had already read alot about things outside my main field of expertise which is IT Infrastrucuture design, implementation and maintenance. I never stopped studying. I just did not study what other people wanted me to study. I was not prepared for what hit me next.

I met a person back in time who was not an elevator, but a highway to hell. In fact, I met more of them. They did nothing but absorb energy. They could absorb tremendous amounts of it. If we translate this to physics, we are looking at an atom absorbing a neutron instead of splitting in two pieces, and thus release energy.

I attempted to direct all my energy towards elevating these people. Nothing came back. No success, just lies and deception. I was shooting neutrons at Lead! Lead does not split when bombarded with neutrons. Uranium does. I started to think… I started to think hard! I started to read the wrong books, they made me think harder and not particularly positive. I had reached critical mass of knowledge of bad things and there was an uncontrollable chain reaction going on in my head.

I read the diagnostic manuals for mental disorders. DSM. That is one screwed up book to read! Things started to become clear but reading this created a mindboggling amount of chaos again. Chaos that again needed to be structured. It took 7 years to understand why they do what they do and how I let them. “Seek first to understand, then to be understood” Stephen R. Covey.

Elevate but don’t trap yourself with people who are incapable of understanding what you are trying to do.

In nature the Alpha wolf will ensure the security of the rest of the pack. A sick wolf must be sent away, it slows down the rest of the pack. People will be pissed when you do that and try to bring you back down. Don’t let them. By a sick wolf, I mean someone who does not support you, but works against you and is completely imune to widening their perspective.

Where I come from, there is this wierd Entrepreneurial mind-blocker called “Jante-loven” It dictates that you should not think that you are better than anyone else. If you are not better than anyone else, how can you do stuff nobody else can do? Jante-loven does not make sense and must be removed. Alpha wolves are alpha wolves, wether society wants to believe or not.

This Jantelov is show stopper for many entrepreneurs, they are met with that mentality wherever they go. Ignore it, shine through and kick down the doors that need to be kicked down so that whoever you decide to include is included.

“No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or by emotional appeal.” – Marilyn Ferguson

The above is quite ertainly true, but you can change peoples perception and help them understand who they are and how to understand other people. If you cannot do that, you cannot elevate.  In that regard I might be happy that I read that book. It should be required reading for HR managers.

“The man who wants to move a mountain begins by carrying away small rocks.”

Be prepared that the social structure that has conditioned people, will come and snap back at you. Because what I did for someone 4 weeks ago, certainly needs to be understood correctly. Not everyone will understand the “magic” that surrounds an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs and IQ

The threshold for “changing the world” apparantly lies at IQ130

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi discovered something fairly interesting about IQ when he studied geniuses
“Noone with an IQ less than 130 has ever moved the world. The difference between 130 and 170 is neglible.” All that matters is the effort they put in.

Take charge! Be a genious! Ionize your surroundings.

Two atoms are walking along. One of them says:
“Oh, no, I think I lost an electron.”
“are you sure?”
“yes, I’m positive”

Do not forget to question the validity of IQ. IQ is based on assumptions, it is a theory, not a law. Even laws can change when more data is collected. Read more in the previous post

This post is dedicated to J.K.S an elevator and S.C. a skilled writer on an entrepreneurial venture. Write more 🙂

Beer delivery too slow in the bar? Generate a business model

Imagine you are at a university. There is a huge galla-party and everyone wants to get drunk.
You are first in the cue to obtain beer. You have been standing in line for 10 minuttes as you tried to get the bartenders attention. You order 5 beer as you don’t really wanna waste another 40 minuttes waiting to obtain the rest of the beer plus you save 2 USD

5 beers 8 USD
1 beer 2 USD

This is where things can change in a matter of seconds. A business model was generated. A short lived one, but still, it’s a business model.

I negotiated with the guys behind me to buy the beer for 2USD  from me,  faster than they could obtain some themselves in that moment in time. I got the bartenders attention already, I am first in line, everyone else are behind me. If I do not move out of the way they wont get beer. How can you stay in the cue? Buy more beer and sell more beer!

Generate, execute!

Be loud! Capture the moment and start talking!

This post should be taken with a grain of salt. It is written with the purpose of giving altcoin / bitcoin developers a reason to get out of their comfortable chairs.

Imagine you are standing outside a university in a small shed where smokers can go enjoy a few coffin nails. Imagine there are 10 people in this room, 2 you know 8 you don’t. Suddenly you have to laugh, and you laugh so loudly that everyone else go silent. Absolutely silent.

This is a position that make most people anxious. Change your perception!

You created an opportunity to tell those people whatever you want. Move to the center of the room… You got their attention, use it!

So, I am back!

Yes, I am back… a while has passed, I have moved around abit and found myself being abnormally creative once I leave the bounds of society.

I have been quietly observing the altcoin/bitcoin market and identified a few issues I would like to address. This involves touching a few subjects that I need to refresh personally, and thus use a learning method called “learn with the intention of teaching others” I read the books before, during my studies, but now I have generated a few business models, that unfortunately also brings to attention the inevitable business plan to support your model. Whenever you want investors to invest in your projects, be it via IPO, VC or a third possibility, the investors would want to see a business plan to satisfy their desire to look at numbers. Numbers which simply do not exist in the startup phase of a business. Unless of course you can predict the future..

Thus, we start the next post with some, potentially interesting information!

Entrepreneurship, Bitcoin, Altcoin, Business Models and last but not least, Business plans.

Cryptocurrencies as startups.

I have been quietly observing the crypto-currency market for a while now, well almost 3 yeas. I have been rather loud at times, exposing scammers, liars and thieves in the crypto currency community.  However, nothing has changed in this community for way too long..

The altcoin scene is in a stalemate and sliding of the board faster and faster each day. A few coins struggle to hold on, but they are mostly all downtrending.

The developers behind most of these coins have not done research on their markets, they have not evaluated and identified strenghts, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) There is also no real business model surrounding the coins. This leads to a tremendous lack of transparency and thus trust. What they are doing? Why are they doing it?, What partners they are collaborating with, revenue streams, marketing channels. More about that later. Sure, its a habit of really smart people to share ideas with friends, fools and families. But that is usually with the intention of getting some feedback.

To get feedback, some people need to understand. In order for more people to understand, you need to visualize. In order to visualize a business model you need to copy and paste, tape and glue, erase and remove, change and optimize.

Use this as a framework: http://businessmodelgeneration.com/book

For cryptocurrencies, well, this demands an exceptional amount visualization for the general population. First of all you are talking about economics, secondly you are talking about cryptography and intangible money. People seem unable to grasp the concept of virtual currencies. You will end up banging your head against a wall of ignorance. Thus a business model describing something “unknown”, damn better describe this mysterious “unknown” to the people who are supposed to invest in this “unknown” Keep in mind, the company that invented the cash ATM went bankrupt because people did not trust the technology and could not grasp the concept of having computers taking care of their money.

I would advise coindevs and maybe the general entrepreneur, to follow this blog as I will touch some important aspects of Business administration that seem to have been left forgotten.

The following weeks, well, untill I get bored with this, and change priority to something more important, I will attempt to explain how to generate a business model. With a business model in hand, go face your investors next demand, a business plan, without fear!

Part one coming soon.
