Here are a few creative challenges the entrepreneur regularly faces.

The Business Idea

Money – or Lack Thereof

Grabbing Opportunities

Continuous Innovation

Handling People Problems with Compassion

When Things Go Wrong

It’s a Life Sentence

“It seems that being an entrepreneur is a handicap as far as most businesses are concerned.Research has shown that not only are established businesses less likely to hire entrepreneurs than other people, but when they do hire entrepreneurs, they pay them less than others in similar positions. Since many job adverts indicate that the employer is looking for “entrepreneurial self-starters”, this is particularly ironic. But, it seems companies are keener to hire people who call themselves entrepreneurial rather than actual entrepreneurs.”

Actually, Teens Love Print Books, Libraries, And Bookstores

“We recently wrote about how young people don’t care much about print media. As it turns out, despite their tech-savvy reputation, today’s youth are still in love with books, and even prefer to buy print copies over digital. According to Nielsen, only 20% of teenagers purchase electronic books, compared with 23% of 18-to-29 year-olds and 25% of 30-to-44 year-olds.

What’s more interesting is how they choose which books to read. Based on Nielsen data charted for us by BI Intelligence, American teenagers choose books based mainly on the author’s previous works (nearly half of all respondents said the author’s body of work is a “major influence”). The next two most important factors are physical browsing through bookstores and libraries. Social media and online retailers like Amazon appear to have very little influence over what books teens choose to read; blogs and “reader sites” like Goodreads even less so.”
