"What I gleaned from viewing “The Social Network” was bigger and more important than whether the scenes and details included in the script were accurate. After all, the movie was clearly intended to be entertainment and not a fact-based documentary. What struck me most was not what happened – and what did not – and who said what to whom and why. The true takeaway for me was that entrepreneurship and creativity, however complicated, difficult or tortured to execute, are perhaps the most important drivers of business today and the growth of our economy." Eduardo Saverin.

Being an entrepreneur is no holiday

stropezbeach-200x300Not the most startling of revelations but something we are all reminded of from time to time. Being an entrepreneur is one of the craziest, yet most rewarding choices an individual can make – and I am so glad I made this decision at 25.

Who is successful?

Sunday is the best day of the week. I lie in bed reading the Sunday papers, skimming through stories that range from general interest through to politics and business. I skip gossip, but spend time reading real estate and travel. I start the day with the herbal tea and usually head out for breakfast with friends in search of the perfect coffee.

Make your business scalable

I had a dream and it wasn’t to run the biggest company. It was to run a company that recreates the expectations of an industry and that is exactly what I am doing.

2010 – My Year!

How many of us spend time thinking about what our New Year’s resolutions are going to be and never let them see light of day?

I am an avid believer in planning and setting goals so New Year’s Resolutions are integral to my life both professionally and personally. In many cases, I actually follow them through because they are realistic, ambitious and achievable.

On New Year’s Eve I sat around with a group of friends of mine and pondered what our New Year’s resolutions should be.

I wrote down 12, everyone else wrote down 1.

Interesting!

Seeing in 2011

pipmelpicatmikes-300x300It’s incredible to think that yet another year has gone by.

It would be amiss of me to not look back and reflect on the year we have just had, yet something tells me that whilst reflection is good, looking forward is even better.
