It’s time to build your bridge …

It’s time to build your bridge from the idea you on on side to it’s realization on the other side.

Move on … just a single step forward !

 

We all have that idea that we cant shake out of our head, the one that we think about in the shower or daydream about. Entrepreneur Job Gebbia, shares how his team grew their idea, Airbnb, into a national startup the hard way: by staying lean, “doing things that don’t scale” like meeting users one at a time, and by taking one small step at a time.

The makers

“We Are Makers” tells the story of the Maker Movement.

It’s the story not of tools but of people.

      A publisher.
      An entrepreneur.
      A design professor.
      A middle school teacher.
      Two museum educators.
      And a creative director.

Each provides an important viewpoint on why new technologies and communities of making are bringing us back to something deeply human.

Seth Godin’s Behemoth Book – unboxing

A nice video created by our triiibal friend Rex Williams.

Thanks !

Seth knows how to do remarkable. While everyone else is all excited about ebooks and readers, carrying an essentially unlimited amount of information in the palm of your hand, Seth knows that people like a souvenir. People like stuff.

And if you have something totally unique, that no one has ever seen before, you’re going to want to share it, show it, and talk about it.

That’s what this is… something to talk about… to remark on…

Something… remarkable.

What does it mean to have purpose in profession?

For a long time, the purpose was the profession—get a job, stick with it, retire.

In other words, it was okay to settle as long as there was a steady paycheck rolling in.
In this eye-opening talk, friends and business partners Nathanial Koloc and Evan Walden discuss a cultural shift in thinking about jobs, in which people desire to have purpose within their profession, seeking organizations whose missions align with their own, and never settling for a paycheck alone.
Using their personal backgrounds as color, they show how they align impact-driven professionals with impact-driven organizations and vice versa.
