Let's get one thing straight, right now, OK? #JohnMaynardKeynes was not a #socialist. He was a conservative economist called upon to develop govt policy during the Great WWI 1917 & into the Great Depression 1929 - 1936 with British world #capitalist establishment & #USPOD #FDR
He came up with clear thinking on how to deal with #depression. His model called #macroeconomics had nothing to do with the masses, unless of course you are referring to the ability of the poor to spend money on their #Consumption, given to us be their need to survive.
.#Macroeconomics was(is) a model of the economy that says if you want2 take on the inability of #capitalism to destroy itself from its basic #ripoffmentality which we are seeing so clearly at present you have to stand back & look at the economy as a whole, not its various parts.

I am so frustrated with the misogyny that is getting perpetuated.

Reported to me by an immigrant guy - who is assimilating to norms - on what is common in a neurosurgery resident office:

Talking about girlfriends’ “b**bs”

....in front of female PAs and med students
1/
Describing women with multiple sexual partners as “human gutters”

U.S. professors, tell him the law has become “gynocentric”

that men need to be afraid and are falsely accused

@TIMESUPHC @choo_ek @janevandis @arghavan_salles

Why #HeforShe matters

2/
Let’s even set aside outrage for a sec

How can you speak of women as “human gutters”, discuss your girlfriend’s “b**bs” at work in front of female med students and PAs

AND claim you are oppressed and need to be scared?

You *are still* openly engaging in sexual harassment

My experience as a small #entrepreneur with #GST
Let us agree on something nothing is perfect. And the current #GST is certainly not perfect but the pertinent question is if it worse than the indirect tax regime it replaced ?

To give context of how bad or good #GST is we have to look at what existed before.
There used to be the dreaded "General Sales Tax" (not GST), where the "dealer" had to renew their registration each year and all their business accounts had to shown to the department which incurred "curious" expenses, failing which let us say you aren't doing any "business"

This session with an entrepreneur and his wife yesterday had my brain working ALL night and so I’ve decided to do a #thread without my super personal details.

This is a thread about #love and being an #entrepreneur
Once I had clarity of purpose and felt in my soul that I knew why I was on this planet at this particular time, I wrote a plan to achieve that ultimate objective.

I studied role models to understand how they managed to find love, especially paying attention to @richardbranson
Staying married seems to be extremely hard for ambitious people willing to take risks few people will take.

It is easy to be singularly-focused and seem selfish. Your business can seem all-consuming. You drop so many balls trying to juggle them.

I think that I am very lucky that I learned to be an entrepreneur early on. I look at law practice from the point of view of an entrepreneur. MBAs are not all that different.

#entrepreneur #lawpractice #Lawyer #lawsikho
How do you think an MBA will plan a legal practice or a law firm?

I have that experience. When I was starting ClikLawyer, I thought of it as a startup and not a law practice, though in hindsight I realize that it was just a super specialized, hyper-systematic law practice,
If I set aside the semantics and legal structure. Technically, it was not a law practice, due to regulatory compulsions.

It is a pity that most lawyers do not think like that while setting up their law practice or building a law firm.

There is nothing automatic about #profit. In fact, 9 of 10 startups fail. Which means they go under and the investor often loses money, time, and effort put into creating and running the business. But it still creates jobs for those employed, even though fortune.com/2014/09/25/why…
those jobs of course only last for as long as the business. There is much confusion about *why* businesses fail, however. Which means there is bad advice for how to avoid failure. As noted in the linked @FortuneMagazine article, the "self-evident" reason startups fail is that
there is no market for what they produce. This is indeed an obvious point, but it is one that is almost entirely avoidable. I would even go as far as saying that most businesses fail for silly reasons, which explains why experienced entrepreneurs often do better: they don't make

My beard care #ecommerce business had a 901% sales increase for the first quarter of 2019 versus 2018. How did I do it? Log on to the interwebs, navigate over to the YouTube and watch everything you can by @rorysutherland @CravenPartners and @RobertCialdini then
go implement it. Here’s some teasers; figure out what people want/need and find a way to make it-or figure out what you can make and find a way to make people want/need it. Makes no difference to the added economic value, GDP doesn’t care how you got there.
Branding isn’t how cool you are, it’s really a heuristic for clients to say “well this probably isn’t shit.”

December first week marks completion of 16 years of my #entrepreneurial journey. I started my business at 22 with just a degree and no actual skill or experience for business. My 2 years of job experience were of beginners level & of not much help.
Looking back I can see what a daunting task I had taken up. There were stages when I almost gave up (mostly in the 1st yr) But my stubbornness sailed me through. I would constantly remind myself not be a failure. However there are a few things I wish I knew or had learnt earlier.
I wish to share a few learnings that I have had in past 16 years as an #Entrepreneur. In this #thread I will list a few lessons that I learnt the hard way and wish it wasn’t the case .

Let's have our weekly #GlobalEChats and discuss the topic of #foodtech #delivery.

As #food is a necessity, it is natural that #entrepreneurs are lured into venturing in the F&B business. What more with #IR40, we often think of taking business one step ahead: by involving tech!
Now let's break this down into two types of niche within #fooddelivery and #fnb industry.

1. You own the restaurant and you are providing an additional delivery #service.

2. You don't own any restaurant and you are merely the delivery service.

The two are very different!
To help put points into perspective:

#1 is a classic example of pizza stores such as @DominosMY. Any #eatery can set up its own delivery system.

#2 is a rather new invention. Such examples would be @foodpanda_my and @GrabMY's GrabFood service!

How to SUCCEED as a new #Entrepreneur. (A thread)

1. Have a plan

You may not need a 50 page business plan but you need to have a PLAN that outlines your business model, your value proposition & method of reward for yourself and those the support your business.
#EntrepreneurLIFE
2. Don't spending unnecessarily

If you are going to make it rain, make sure you have seed planted in the field.

You'll want to make more than you spend. Plan your spending just as much as you plan your income.
3. Stop trying to do everything yourself.

There is so much you can do on your own - learn to delegate.

Do what you are great at and delegate the rest to others who are better than you at what you are not great at.

Delegate and you'll get further than you can on your own.

#Tech in #Farming has been changing the world since the invention of the wheel millenniums ago. Since then, all new innovations either make crops easier to #harvest, more bountiful shorter farming time and more resilient and healthier crops.

#Hydroponics has been a thing for a while now while #urbanfarming is still a growing idea. Among #tech that are being used in #farming are drones, #IoT and use of data analytics to ensure the precise farming.

While some may not be tangible but they result to exponential results!

Let's discuss this thread for our #GlobalEChats!

So what do you make of the wave of #ecommerce these days? Come delve into the ins and outs of it with us!
So #Entrepreneurs out there, what is ecommerce?

It just refers to electronic transactions done in the name of #sale and #purchase.

In simpler terms, you buy and sell things online with the #internet! That's it!
But to whom and from whom can these #transactions take place between? Surprisingly, it's not just between #business (B) and #Customers (C)!

It can take place between:
1. B2B
2. B2C
3. C2C (or P2P)
4. C2B

Hi, #MAGA friends! By now U probably know that @realJeffreyP (RIGHT side of pic) is a tech #entrepreneur/started the 1st publicly-traded Social Network in #USA history. It's true! I joined #WalkAway 2 support Pres. #TRUMP b/c I realized certain of my own colleagues were #Corrupt
Not knowing where 2 turn, I realized that Pres. #TRUMP is not #crazy like my #Democrat friends said. My eyes were OPENED & now support DT & am PROUD of OUR PRESIDENT. Some time ago when I was with top #Democrats, Nancy Pelosi told me something EXTREMELY DISTURBING & I will share
It was late one afternoon/evening at a VIP private reception for top party donors, only certain #Democrats had been invited. We were among friends & colleagues in an environment where several top #Democrats were sharing information about recent events & developments

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM #RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia #Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM #RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.

Let's discuss this thread in this week's #GEMChats for #entrepreneurs. What are some common mistakes that #startups, especially #fashion startups make that makes them less viable?
Let's breakdown the mistakes into sections of a business. These sections can take form within the Operational, Connectivity and Knowledge aspect of the #startup business. #entrepreneurship #womenentrepreneur

So let's discuss this. Feel free to mention us and let's talk!
Firstly, Knowledge.

Studies have found that 3 out of 4 #startups fail. Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) reported that fashion is one of the most difficult industries.

The lack of knowledge prior to starting and while running a #fashion startup can be a costly mistake.

I prayed to God for Knowledge
He gave me wisdom
Ever since she came into my life all i see is opportunity
She guides me daily and teaches me the right step to take,
How can I take her for granted.

Thank you wisdom for flowing through my veins....
THREAD
At a very young age hmm let's say 12 or so
All I asked God was knowledge
I never asked for anything
Back in the days even as teenagers
My friends would call me conglomerate
I use to take it as joke ooo
In short, I never took it as anything
As I grew older I started seeing my myself as an entrepreneur
I worked ooo
Haa I worked. But it was one place I never wanted to be
As an entrepreneur, I knew I needed those lessons
