Blogging And Entrepreneurship – One Step At A Time

The Caminito in La Boca, Buenos Aires.

I am sat thinking what to write and all the blogs I have read recently are running through my mind so I think that’s a good place to start.

Firstly I have read a great guide on blogging and blog marketing from Hector J Cuevas that has a lot of really useful advice and tips on every relevant aspect. I now have to apologise Hector for not putting all your great advice in to practice yet, I am at such an early stage in my blogging journey and in the mood to write with out all the sensible preparation. Seeing as I have no audience I could just as well have written this on a piece of paper in my front room. I must add I have every intention of implementing all the advice one step at a time to fully analyse the results.

I have to now mention BA expat this is one of the first blogs I read on WordPress and my favourite. It was the author Zack’s birthday yesterday and only 26 his birthday wish is that his blogs are shared on Facebook which I’ve already done and you should too.

To start at the beginning in regard to BA expat’s posts, I literally read the first one due to the mention of Buenos Aires which I’ve visited and loved, such a beautiful country. On reading I discovered there are further synergies with my own passions firstly entrepreneurship, he offers great ideas to help establish a product or business for those keen to startup but yet to find their direction.
He also covers:
•market evaluation
•manufacturing in China and Taiwan
•negotiating with manufacturers
•outsourcing (especially for areas of personal weakness)
To name but a few from memory but inspiring tips with synergies to any sector or business.

He also focuses on the power of mind-set and the value of being fit, healthy, surrounded by succesful, ambitious people all being key factors to aid your own success.
Most importantly though a lot of BA expat’s blogs make my laugh out loud on several occasions as I read through them, which most comedians can’t do. It’s when he documents his experiences of living in a foreign country with limited language skills and his humility at laughing at himself with situations that arise, felling child like and vulnerable due to the language barrier.

I have to finish this here but I hope you enjoy the afore-mentioned posts as much as I did.

Network – Foundation of Success

I really want to connect with all of you, everyone, we all have something to bring to the table to teach each other. Even if you haven’t found your voice, confidence or self belief, you will have learnt life skills, skills from employment, social media or technological abilities that other people lack. Don’t confuse self doubt with inability.

I have been fortunate enough to have learnt so much from so many inspirational people, but for a long time that niggling self doubt prevented me from utilising the knowledge to my advantage. This is a common deterrent to success.  

I am keen to build a network of knowledge sharing and support to achieve our personal goals or enhance our offering.
