If we realize the value problem, we also realize the real problem that #entrepreneurs face and must find a solution to. It's not to come up with The Idea, as is often assumed, nor the invention or the technology, but how to make something valuable to other people.
Value is the experience of satisfying a want, which means to find oneself in a better situation than before and compared to what one otherwise expected. This does not need specific inputs, but if it doesn't then there is nothing stopping us from simply satisfying it at whim.
The world's limited resources means we must try to get as valuable experiences as possible, to be as well off as we can, from what means are available to us. There is no end to how content we can imagine becoming, but the means are not enough to get us there. So we must choose.

Thread by @JessicaMeigs (THANK YOU THANK YOU!)

โžก๏ธ Hey #entrepreneurs, #TwitterMarketing, and ANYONE who is #selfemployed

โ€ผ๏ธEVERYONE should know this information that's being buried in the news cycle:

โ€ผ๏ธThe PRO Act, or HR 842โ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Ž

The voting date is scheduled for 03/08! (aka THIS Monday!)

๐ŸšจRemember the heavily OPPOSED smack-down that #California imposed on millions of #independentcontractors?

That they are โ€ผ๏ธSTILLโ€ผ๏ธ fighting? The law that says you cannot even do #Rideshare unless @uber, @lyft, @Grubhub
... EMPLOY you as an official employee of the company. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Even IF they could afford to do that (and these companies have ALREADY said they CANNOT,) you could not:

๐Ÿ”ธset your own schedule
๐Ÿ”ธwhere you want to work
๐Ÿ”ธor any other #sidehustle - GONE

Not sure if youโ€™re in this ๐Ÿ“ฆ?

Here it is, Missouriโ€™s โ€œRight to Startโ€ bill, HB 1202, which is inspired by my interests in economic development issues, #entrepreneurship, & our stateโ€™s need to expand our new business climate. Thanks to @rainforestbook, @JasonGrill, @DixonRob and @DerekGrier for helping me.
The Right to Start bill linked below, comes from a belief that Missourians have a right to start a company & the state should be encouraging that behavior. So, I filed a bill to make that easier for entrepreneurs to take the leap. Time for a #threadโ€ฆ
In the bill, thereโ€™s an SBA lending provision allowing the state of Missouri to help with loans for last mile funding for the purchase of existing and heritage Missouri businesses. Thanks to @BrentBeshore for helping me think through this.

In association with @MakersWomenIN , we present a detailed overview of the state of women in tech entrepreneurship in India at @_TechSparks by answering 7 key questions, after analysing data for the period of Jan 2018 to June 2020.

Here's a sneak peak into what you can expect:
Positive signs ๐Ÿ‘

- Women #entrepreneurs in tech entering offbeat, male-dominated sectors
Segment which needs improvement & introspection

- Wide investment diversity gap: Tech startups with female founder(s) got less than 6% of the total startup funding (Jan โ€™18 - June 2020)

- Surge in women tech entrepreneurs but funding remains a challenge

Last week on episode 85 of the #E4Epod with @PerBylund, we urged entrepreneurs to consider the insights of the Austrian school of economics versus those of Business School. Here are some of the #austrianschool vs. #businessschool highlights: Austrian School vs. Business School - Comparative Considerat
The Austrian school of #economics helps #entrepreneurs understand how #markets really work, enabling them to think better about running their businesses. B-schools train managers for management positions and tasks in large corporations.
Austrian school thinking and analysis is original, deduced via rigorous cause-and-effect realism. Business schools borrowed from other disciplines in the university, like sociology, psychology, and economics.

'Pulling #consumption forward' is an unhelpful euphemism for 'engaging in #capital consumption': more graphically, 'writing cheques the people can't cash'.
Self-sustaining #growth requires coherence between consumption & production not just today, but over time.
1/x #centralbanks
That latter is difficult enough to achieve without #centralbankers & policy-makers in general trying to impose their own vision of the balance (one always narrowly biased to the present) on a system composed of billions of interacting needs & preferences.
The unavoidable (Rumsfeldian) uncertainty -as well as the calculable risks- is made much greater when every fluctuation today -itself a direct result of IN-coherence, largely inflicted from above- is greeted with yet another blunt-force trauma assault on the capital structure

Like all heavily regulated (protected) industries, #highered is ripe for disruption. But #startups have failed to challenge #universities because #entrepreneurs are, simply put, doing it wrong. They have focused on the wrong problem, trying to beat universities at their best, not
their worst. Higher ed does not actually have a teaching problem, despite what people may assume. The classroom method of teaching, or guided learning through instruction, has worked very well for centuries. There may be plenty of tweaks to make it more effective, less costly,
but disruption is not about tweaks or cost-cutting. Disruption is about rethinking how things are done. Universities, while perhaps lagging in adoption of online technologies and not doing enough to enthuse students in the classroom, do not have a delivery problem. Entrepreneurs

India has a tendency to NOT celebrate entrepreneurial success. We still havenโ€™t gotten out of licence Raj thinking or it has been handed down so efficiently by previous generations that the county is still stuck in its clutches. You see a successful businessman, first reaction..
..he must be corrupt or connected to some party. He must have given a bribe.
Businesses are backbone of country. From vegetable seller to Ambani, itโ€™s they who make commerce, trade and economy possible. They build factories and offices so people get employment and salaries. 2/3
They pay most taxes that go in running country, making roads and creating large armies. If people didnโ€™t take risk of doing business and everyone wanted a secure job,where would they get jobs from?Even govt wouldnโ€™t have money to pay salaries. #Entrepreneurs deserve Respect !

#Entrepreneurs, Choose what u fight 2020
I once met a very successful business man and asked him to share his secret with me.
He smiled and said to me....I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters.
I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me..
I stopped fighting over unneccessary issues with my spouse....
I stopped fighting for attention......
I stopped fighting to meet up with public expectation....
I left such fights for those who have nothing else to fight
...."And I started fighting for my vision,my dreams,my ideas and my destiny.Then I started winning big".That was the day I gave up on small fights.
Some fights are not worth your time.

#Fight to make your visions and dreams come alive!
Fight the good fight of faith!

#VoicesFromKashmir is an initiative by @SFLCin to bringing you stories from Kashmir that were lost due to the #CommunicationBlockade. These voices are of students, of businessmen, of ordinary citizens effected by #InternetShutdowns.

In this series we listen to Shayan Bandey who used to be an entrepreneur but ever since the #Internet was shutdown in #JammuAndKashmir, he has been unemployed.
#VoicesFromKashmir #Kashmir
Shayan used to run digital marketing campaigns for his clients based in Jammu and Kashmir, but with #NoInternet, he has been forced to look at other alternatives and look for himself and his family.

Many seem to think it is "unfair" to say that #entrepreneurs who didn't foresee the #pandemic "should" lose their businesses, because it is an unforeseeable event. But this completely misses the point: *every* event is unforeseeable for entrepreneurs. When you invest your own
money, it's not simply about figuring out (or guessing) that something will happen, but also when it will happen and what it means specifically for your investment. It is also not about having foresight, but about exercising good and proper judgment about what might happen and
how to best respond to it. Their problems are less about "foreseeing a pandemic" than about expecting something to happen and thus refrain from irreversible investments that lock you in. Yes, there is luck involved. But only because the future is uncertain. Superior entrepreneurs

In a world where people still starve (though thankfully proportionately fewer over time) and material needs in general are unsated, there can be no #savingsglut. There CAN be misallocations of saving -due to corrupted price signals or corrupted polities, or both- but thatโ€™s...
...a very different matter.
Secondly, โ€˜savingโ€™ is supposed to represent an available resource -whether for consumption or production, whether material or human. It is NOT something which magically appears when the #centralbank & its minions sit behind a keyboard...
If #JeromePowell or M #Lagarde cause a million smackers to appear in everyoneโ€™s account overnight, bank balances will have risen; #savings, will NOT. Even a man as unnuanced as Mussolini got this, sneering that Italiansโ€™ wealth would not rise if they all had more printed...

If we want to win against China in manufacturing & Industries then Central/State government must offer best schemes & support those industries which are regularly paying GST, Income tax & all other dues without any default.

Special #EconomicPackage based on CRISIL Ratings, + 1/4
Financially, Ethically clean, Patriotic companies can only fight with Chinese dragon!

Those having liabilities on own; defaulters & Weak financial background entities can not fight freely as they will fill up there own pockets first & will be ready for next package again. +2/4
Govt will also send strong & encouraging messages to all leading & genuine #Entrepreneurs that โ€œwe are with you.โ€

This will not only boost the Economy but will also help us to fight with China more effectively & strongly.

Note -Helping #startups would be long-term policy +3/4
