"When you push against a system and it is an unjust system, you must prepare yourself mentally for the isolation and resistance that comes with that. Activism and whistleblowing looks sexy on TV, but it’s hard on your mind and wellbeing." --Dr. Monica Cox…

Options are limitless to start the entrepreneurial journey. It can be a struggle to decide where to start.

Here is a way to start taking action and getting clarity.

Take one idea and do a 30 day test.

Read the 🧵 to get started ..
First, set a few simple milestones. Examples:

1.) Build prototype or wire frames,

2.) Talk to X # of customers,

3.) Launch a landing page and land X number of inbound leads, etc.

Make the milestones as tangible as possible. Not just getting random opinions.
Next, execute on those milestones for 30 days and hit them.

The key is to execute like this is your permanent commitment.

Focus is important to get a personal feel for the business.

If you’re still working full time, calibrate the milestones to what can be achieved.

#Startups often get lost in the noise & don’t provide customers a reason to buy.

Positioning solves this problem, generates buzz and lands #sales.

It’s hard to get started. Here is a simple process to begin positioning now.

A thread .. it starts with some simple questions.👇
1.) What's the specific problem you are trying to solve (the more specific the better).

> How do you make the person (b2c) or company better (b2b)

> what is the specific ROI expected (more on ROI in this thread

NOTE: Avoid jargon and industry buzzwords here. Explain like over dinner with friends.

Next, you need to think about the person. 👇

This is the truth...A🧵
Everyday *THEY* game the system. Everyday we are forced to play their game with no ROI. It's rigged against #smallbusinesses & #startups outside SV/1% $. Building a biz is nearly impossible if you're not a wht guy.
Yet they avoid paying more taxes? 1/17
Social impact is not immune. On a website of an out of touch "social impact investor" (saw this today!) who only funds businesses 3 years + with annual revenue $750k +. Suggestion from their FAQ for startups is appalling for a fund claiming to help the neediest of businesses. 2/ A screen shot of black type...
"We require a minimum of three years in operation for financing, and thus do not fund start-ups. For capital to get your social enterprise off the ground, we recommend reaching out to friends and family, or an angel investor network in your area." Why didn't we think of that?! 3/

I was head hunted for my 1st NGO job, not because I was looking, but it was based on 2 recommendations from volunteer work.

Volunteering is one way to get an NGO job, to build your network, to develop skills, build experience and to grow your career.


A thread

Some jobs are not advertised, but you are invited to apply based on referrals.

My first paid NGO job was with KAF-Zim as a Programme Officer in 2002. The Res Rep asked for referrals from his network, 2 leaders I have volunteered for, separately recommended me for the interview.
At any stage in your career, you will not have the required skills or experience from paid wok, you can develop this from volunteer work.

I learnt program design and coordination from volunteer positions I held in high school, college and even now 20 years into NGO global work.

Excited that our paper: "Measuring the Occupational Impact of AI: Tasks, Cognitive Abilities and AI Benchmarks" has been published in Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (@JAIR_Editor).

Here's a thread (1/10)
#EconTwitter #HUMAINT #futureofwork…
The paper is the result of truly interdisciplinary work with sociologist Enrique Fernández-Macías, computer scientists @NandoMartinezP , @emiliagogu and José Hernández-Orallo, and economists Annarosa Pesole and me. Also, help from @CharisiVicky, HRI researcher. (2/10)
We develop a framework with which we can measure the exposure of occupations to AI. Note: we use the term "exposure" not "substitution" to avoid feeding into that fear-mongering narrative of "robots stealing our jobs". (3/10)

Metis is very proud to announce a new strategic partnership with @opolis, a forward-thinking, member-owned Digital Employment Cooperative for independent workers.

To understand this partnership and how both Opolis & $METIS operate, it's time for a thread about the #FutureofWork
Around the world, independent/gig workers have struggled to gain the rights and protections afforded to salaried employees. We see this with Uber drivers, farmers, and countless other kinds of workers.
Opolis aims to change that. Using the structure of its digital employment cooperative and its $WORK token, Opolis will provide payroll services, health benefits, and much more for independent workers, building an ownership economy for the Web 3.0 world.

Los líderes empresariales necesitan adaptarse a lo que quieren los colaboradores: lo mejor de ambos mundos
Al mismo tiempo, la gente está luchando para adaptase. Y se necesita encontrar nuevas formas para ayudarlos (a los casados les "iría mejor" que los solteros en la pandemia).

While lockdown has been slow for some, it's certainly not been for others who have smelt the winds of change!

#SPACs are bypassing Direct Listings & IPO's in a race to market - Sucking up all that 💰 hunting for returns 📈

#Fintech joining 'Democratise & Digitalise everything'
#China seem poised to become the worlds leading power - #US are on guard! 🧐

Little bit like their former communist friends (Russia) the leadership are getting their Oligarchs/Titans in-line & on-message before their potential big push.

Everything seems to be changing around us

How Organizational Network Analysis Can Increase Team Collaboration

latest from Workforce Futurist Newsletter is part of a series on ‘The New Technology of Teams’

This article is a collaboration with @fmarinmayer and @CTS_ONA (1/8)
All great work happens in teams.

Yet many management and HR processes are designed around the individual.

We need new approaches, and tools, to support successful teams.

#Leadership @VIDOInterVac #HRTech #CHRO
How is Teamwork Changing?

There's an increasingly decentralized workforce as many people work outside of organizational structures.

These workers are not working in isolation but forming new teams.

🧵What are the ILO and the EU doing to address the #digitaltransformation of work? In this new article @n_potocka and I examine a set of core initiatives such as the ILO’s Centenary Declaration on the #FutureOfWork and the EU Pillar of #SocialRights >
We review the social acquis of both institutions and concentrate on the key analogies. They advocate towards building an adaptable labour market and securing the rights of non-standard workers, who are often excluded from the scope of labour and social protection
Over the last years, these institutions have acknowledged the vast potential brought about by technological progress, but also the urgency to ‘correct’ negative externalities that lead to profound vulnerabilities, social exclusion, and political resentment

It's not a #covid #recession, it's a #shecession. Thread up, baby --- >
A majority of the jobs lost in the early stages of COVID were held by women, especially in industries like hospitality. As a result, the term “she-cession” was coined. I think we all intuitively realize that COVID was going to be worse for women overall, and
especially working moms — and then most school districts went to a confusing mix of virtual and hybrid in-person, which made it doubly hard for moms of school-aged children, who normally bear that burden. Here’s something from Wharton about this whole topic,

We spend billions per year on the #Leadership industry.
But uh, ahem, er … what exactly are we getting out of it, especially at this moment? A thread --- >
No one has exact figures on the “size” of the global leadership industry, or leadership development market, or whatever you prefer to call it. I have seen numbers from $14B to $24B to $366B (wow) back down to $44B. I honestly don’t think people know what is even involved in these
big numbers. I would guess we are talking mostly about books, speeches (speaker fees?), training modules, training programs, and the like. I’d speculate (but don’t know) that a huge chunk of that is book publishing. A book on every leadership angle has seemingly been written.

Dear #MedTwitter please, please, if you are a licensed medical professional and/or in school to be, do NOT delete your tweets or comply with anyone telling you to do so. It will harm you far more than leaving them up and explaining. Nothing is ever deleted. Can be used in court.
When I was at Harvard Med School and at an esteemed children's hospital, a case against an esteemed professor, that NO lawyer would touch cuz this was someone who had WRITTEN the textbooks and trained every expert, was won ..based on "a document was deleted" - creating suspicion
"Sunlight is the best disinfectant" you will hear me say OVER and OVER - wins & losses *should* be on data/standards but unfortunately wins & losses are in the court of public opinion. So be reliable, credible, and trustworthy. Transparency is one way to achieve that reputation.
