1. Introspect: Without a doubt, the first step to plan more savings is self-reflect. Ask yourself, how much are you spending on unnecessary things? How impulsive are you when it comes to shopping? You will get a lot of answers!
2. Chart a budget plan: Try to jot down your daily spending in a diary or spreadsheet. Writing provides much needed clarity on every subject!

The role of #entrepreneurship in the market process is little understood. Even those who are well read in Ludwig von Mises's magnificent Human Action tend to get the economic function wrong, especially its implications for the structure and progression of the market process.
To Mises, entrepreneurship is 'simply' the uncertainty-bearing aspect of human action. This is his praxeological definition, which therefore offers us truths about how the structure of human action explains observable phenomena and cause-and-effect relationships in the market.
This broad definition of entrepreneurship explains why some plans and decisions are unsuccessful, why different people may make different decisions, and why actors can reconsider/change their behavior before actions are concluded. Because the data change, actors learn and adapt.

If you want to be an entrepreneur, you have to embrace crisis.

Yes, you read that right. In any entrepreneur's life, every day is a bit of a #crisis. Things go wrong, people misunderstand, conflicts occur — crisis is a constant companion.
Most #entrepreneurs learn to "deal with the crisis" over time. I don't think it's enough to treat crisis as unavoidable & hence reluctantly deal with it.

To be successful, we need to proactively embrace crisis & excel at dealing with it.
- Crisis can present opportunities
- It can enable the next generation of leaders to emerge
- It can inspire new ideas & solutions for problems that might not have otherwise been attempted
- Each crisis changes the way you do business

जब तक सांस तब तक आस, they say in Hindi.

Roughly translating to "till there's life, there's hope". In my life, I've thought of it more like, "till there's work, there's hope." (1/6)
Because in our paths, disappointments will be plenty - Investors who don't understand the vision, employees who don't share your drive, friends who think you've very high expectations, customers who aren't ready yet - none of this your fault, but all of it inevitable. (2/6)
To be a successful entrepreneur, to build something that doesn't exist yet, you need to accept (even expect) finite disappointment without ever losing infinite hope.

Here are some ways to do it. (3/6)

Historically #Kashmiri women have enjoyed freedom like none of their counterparts in the other regions of our country. The intrusion of regressive ideologies, targeted at women, in the 90’s, might have pushed them behind but they are rapidly changing the gender norms.

#Kashmir
The spirit of women in #Kashmir, supported aptly by various #government initiatives, have grown wings that enable them to soar the skies and break the glass ceiling.
#WomenEmpowerment #Kashmir

@FatimaDar_jk @MirYanaSY @AsimKhanTweets @IAmErAijaz
With the #abrogation, women of #Kashmir now have a stake in their ancestral properties regardless of their choice is spouse. This have liberated women who are not bound, shackled with patriarchal laws.

Before we get into it I just want to say that this is a collection of my lessons/mistakes & years experiences.

This is not to be used as a copy & paste, but more of a guideline & game that you must contextualize for your situation.

Extract the principles in the text.

Cool!
1. This is key. The first step is accepting that you're going to be in this for the long haul. This is why it doesn't help selling fads unless finding new fads is your strategy.

Know alot about the market but more importantly the [Psychology] of how people in it consume.

Hello 👋 new followers. Feel free to introduce yourself.

Me: A top strength of mine is “input” Others in pics.

I tweet A LOT. I tweet long threads with links to articles, with highlighted screenshots, links to others’ tweets. I hold onto info & reference past yet “futuristic”
You have to know the past to understand patterns and see possibilities as well as navigate past barriers for the future.

If you like control or boundaries, run now as I promise you I will be 🤯 for you.

If you like creativity, expression, innovation, equity, ethics, welcome.
I am going to constantly run around the world finding interesting concepts & facts, be passionate & outspoken on justice/equity, re-use old tweets to explore new facet in new thread.

I’ll shape shift & if you try to pin me down or box me in, you will be frustrated.

Am grateful my #endometriosis and #fibroids only affects me severely one day a cycle and is not severe every cycle. Still that one day can make me unable to get out of bed or sit up without passing out. Severity worsens with stress.

Today I feel have my life back. Thank God.
Mind you, my definition of severe is “I pass out from pain.” I don’t know if it is really a good thing I self suppress so well that I don’t even feel or react to pain until it threatens my ability to stay conscious. I don’t glamorize “grit” that is a lack of self compassion
It is an accommodation to the pathology in the world we live that was apparent with the events this week. 6 Asian women killed but the compassion was for the killer who “had a bad day” by authorities while the women were mislabeled as sex workers to validate their deaths.

What an powerful and insightful Techpreneurship journey @Mariatheresa_tz, thanks for sharing the key lessons learned while starting and managing @mobileafya. Such an inspiration to othet #Tech #Founders
We learned how it started from curiosity "How will Africa look if everyone can easily access health information?" --> to taking action. Lesson "Don't walk around a problem" waiting for others to solve, you may have a key contribution to make for a solution.
We learned about learning to get out of the comfort zone, make necessary wise choices and utilise available resources around to move from a problem to a solution.

Thread by @JessicaMeigs (THANK YOU THANK YOU!)

➡️ Hey #entrepreneurs, #TwitterMarketing, and ANYONE who is #selfemployed

‼️EVERYONE should know this information that's being buried in the news cycle:

‼️The PRO Act, or HR 842‼️👎

...…📵🔊 threadreaderapp.com/thread/1366805…
The voting date is scheduled for 03/08! (aka THIS Monday!)

🚨Remember the heavily OPPOSED smack-down that #California imposed on millions of #independentcontractors?

That they are ‼️STILL‼️ fighting? The law that says you cannot even do #Rideshare unless @uber, @lyft, @Grubhub
... EMPLOY you as an official employee of the company. 😱

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

🔸set your own schedule
🔸where you want to work
🔸or any other #sidehustle - GONE

Not sure if you’re in this 📦?

Here it is, Missouri’s “Right to Start” bill, HB 1202, which is inspired by my interests in economic development issues, #entrepreneurship, & our state’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 #thread house.mo.gov/billtracking/b…
In the bill, there’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.

#Bitcoin has been on a dream run growing by over 280% over a year! Given its decentralized nature, Cryptocurrency has been touted as a regulator's worst nightmare and also as the future for digital economies

Everybody has heard of #bitcoin and cryptocurrencies by now.
Yet, most people don’t know enough about them and there are very few experts

@balajis, Ex-CTO of Coinbase, though has a deep understanding of this space. Here are a few points on the potential of crypto from his recent post:
balajis.com/why-india-shou…
1. Cryptocurrency has become a Trillion-dollar industry in just 10 years.

2. More than $5B in venture capital has been invested in cryptocurrency startups by the world's top tech investors

3. India could launch a digital rupee – and back it with digital gold.

Those of us who affirmed our own agency and power by learning from and with our moms. My mom’s stories are her own but she and I together have unpacked many cultural myths to learn better self compassion, willingness to identify racism, less perfectionism.
💪🏽💪🏻💪🏿 @DrvanTilburg
This is a type of trauma many WOC/POC experience. My mom’s hair is extremely thick, textured. I recall her being very fixated on making sure her own hair & our hair was always incredibly neat.

More recently I’ve come to understand this matches an experience of having black hair.
The so-called “model minority “is taught to align with white culture, to suppress oneself in order to layer under & serve white supremacy.

I have worked to remove internalized racism, colorism, self hate & learned from #blackexcellence on:

Internet is full of hacks & methods to enhance "work productivity", this can become a case of reductive thinking.

Rarely, you can have so much work, in a team or individually, feel like being underwater; onky wise thing is do just work on anything regardless of priority!

1/3
Imagine you are middle of an ocean, no land in sight. The best strategy is not to "think & plan" which direction but to just swim & not drown.

Once you have covered a certain distance & have land in sight, then you can reorient yourself & chart a course to nearest shore.

2/3
TL;DR - Optimize for productivity when you are above water not below, because it doesn't work in my experience.

What do you think? Would love to hear your take on this! 🤔

The problem with (and for) #SiliconValley is their lack of #entrepreneurship. Yes, really: they're bad at being entrepreneurs, at providing the entrepreneurial function in the economy. To put it differently, they are technology driven in their profit-seeking but not consumer
driven. The difference is monumental both for the economy and the companies, and this is why they're failing. No, failing doesn't mean they are necessarily losing money, but that their profits are short-term and that they are undermining their own market positions. The business
they are in is not sustainable. This goes way beyond the selling of eyeballs, which is the focus of Facebook, Twitter, Google, and others. As it's often said, if you are not the paying for the product you *are* the product. Facebook is selling you, and your future purchases, to

There are many admin and operations tasks that go into running a business. Though repetitive and tedious, they are the life blood of any company. 🧵
These tasks determine whether customers are attended to on time, products are launched successfully and payments are received as at when due.
That is why your organisation's Admin Department/Function needs a tracker. It can be a simple shared Google sheet or a software.
