"I'm convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance." - Steve Jobs
Never give up on your dreams. Even when times are tough or aren't going the way you had hoped, keep trying and keep believing in your business.
Scroll down for the week 7 list.
For those new to the ENTR Innovation Challenge here is a recap.
Here’s the challenge:
-30 minutes per day
-Watch 1 TED Talk and read 1 Blink per day Monday-Friday. Take the weekends off.
-A Blink is a short 15-minute summary of key concepts of a book. (www.blinkist.com)
It may sound like a big commitment but it’s easier than you think. Blinkist offers audio versions for most books; I get through my daily innovation while walking the dog.
Just to make sure there are no excuses for not giving this challenge a try, I have put together a list for you. Each day has a Ted Talk and a Blink with a similar theme. Topics range from entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, productivity, and general life hacks. Week 7 is below, check back to the blog each week for a new list. www.Ventureformations.com/blog
