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.

So #Entrepreneurs out there, what is ecommerce?

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

everything is a step in time. It makes me wonder how every "BIG BRAND" out there made it. Did they actually think they will take the market by storm? Did the founder do it all alone? Did he/she build a team? How did he/she start the company? Was the idea that brilliant?
Thread👇
Is it actually a straight road to success or they had to fail at some point, pause or start all over? Maybe the marketing strategy? Where they that good they cannot be ignored? Maybe their product or service was the best OR were they simply lucky."All the above stated ideas kept
jogging my memory. Truth is they all have a "COMMON DENOMINATOR" (they kept doing something about the brand each day no matter how little, making mistakes and perfecting them, working out new ideas, plans and strategies, getting bored, tired, giving up and coming back on board).

Let's discuss yesterday's polls and begin our discussion on youth entrepreneurship with #GEMChats

This is a thread.
In a summary report of an OECD and the European
Commission seminar in 2014 , two things were key points:

1. #unemployment was at 10.9% in 2013 and double for #youth : 23.4%

2. 45% of youth prefer self-employment to
#employment, whereas 37% of adults prefer self-employment.
In Malaysia, MIDF reports find youth unemployment to be high - hitting a record 10.8% last year, attributed to a skills mismatch.

This is a significant 40.5% of total unemployment in #Malaysia.

So what can be done?

1) If customers are to trust you and commit to your brand, your brand needs to be professional. Hire that graphic designer to create your logo, business cards, website so that you have a consistent look. Hire a marketing guru and/or a business coach to help you plan strategy.
2) Research business systems so invoicing, proposals and communications are complete, organized and automated. How you treat your business is how you’ll be perceived to treat a client’s business. #Influencer #LinkedInMarketing #OnlineMarketing #DigitalMarketing #Marketing #Sales

1) Hard times are often blessings in disguise. Let go and let life strengthen you. No matter how much it hurts, hold your head up and keep going. This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a rough day, a bad month, or a crappy year. Truth be told,
2) sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your spirit needs most. Your past was never a mistake if you learned from it. So take all the crazy experiences and lessons and place them in a box labeled “Thank You.''

1) We are each a spark of the Divine. Worthy as ever. And yet, sometimes we lose sight of our inherent value. That inner voice can become muffled by the narratives we play over and over in our mind. What are the messages that wear us down? In this moment, let’s challenge them.
2) What has caused us to forget that we are deserving? In this moment, let’s remind ourselves that our capacity for growth and strength is incredible. How can we reframe our experiences and begin viewing our lives from a more elevated perspective?
3) Are we ready to stop buying into old thoughts patterns and start trusting more empowering ones? Know this – there is so much more in store for you. The more we begin to believe this, with God’s help, the sooner we will receive what we hope, pray, and strive for. #believe

(1) #PhotoThread: 2018 Midterms - High Energy Trump Rallies!

Below: Recent #TrumpRally in Washington, Michigan.

#MAGA #Midterms #KeepDiggingDemocrats
(2) Covering Trump rallies live always creates a dilemma for me: High quality photos after the event, or lower quality photos during it?

As an #entrepreneur (which makes #America great) I found a solution: A running thread for ALL rallies.

Washington, MI:
(3) Tonight's rally is in Elkhart, IN, right after the primary which saw #BraunForIndiana win the nomination for the Senate race in November.

Signs of #HighEnergy momentum with a big overflow crowd before the rally - venue only holds 7,300.

It's going to be like this all year
