Stephanie Sims2,728*Pooling Our Knowledge: Entrepreneurs’ Community Hangout* *Monday, May 12 2014* *1:00 pm Pacific (4:00 pm Eastern, 3:00 pm Central, and 2:00 pm Mountain)*   We’re excited to start this HOA series specifically for the Entrepreneurs’ Community, entitled “Pooling Our Knowledge”. Each week, a community member (or two!) will speak on their area of expertise, and give you some tips to improve your business in that specific area.   Of course, we’ll take all the questions from the audience that we have time for during the show, and do our best to respond to those we can’t answer on-air afterwards.   Not only will you get some helpful tips, but you’ll have the opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs who may be struggling with the same issues that you are!   This week’s topic is *“Setting Your Business up for Financial Success”.* We’ll be covering some of the essential tools you need to manage your finances, including financial projections and financial reporting (and NO, they aren’t the same thing!). If you have any questions, please leave them on the event page! This week’s hosts are: @100507762856957104832    Judi is the founder of GrowthCast. She helps small businesses see their financial future. Judi and GrowthCast are on a mission to demystify business financials and allow any business owner to understand the health of their business. @104267556228949747305  Stephanie gives owners a new way to measure the value of their business, using a method called Finance-Ability. She wants owners to understand the value of their company before they get involved in any financial decisions, so they are dealing from a position of strength. Knowing your worth is always a good thing - in life and in business!   We look forward to seeing you for the first of many community hangouts!   #PoolingOurKnowledge #EntrepreneursCommunityHOA  POOLING OUR KNOWLEDGE - Entrepreneurs' Community Hangout2014-05-12 22:00:0032

Although couched in political terms, this post makes an interesting point about what the news cycle might be doing to us. It's well-known the humans respond to negative information much more intensely than they do to positive information. It's just how we evolved, and it's a well-known cognitive bias.

We constantly hear about horrible things happening all the time now. What is this doing to us? Right now the news is flooded with a horrible abduction that took place in Northern California. In a different era we probably wouldn't have known about it - it would have been local or regional news.

This is also likely that "hack" that Donald Trump tapped into. People think that horrible but rare events, like airplane crashes, are likely to happen to them. Terrorist attacks are terrible, but let's face it, those people are more likely to croak because of their... more »

New! "Member Discussion" Category. As those of you who have been here a while know, this community has been plagued with "link dumping" - in fact, all communities on Google+ have this problem. People have been conditioned to think their best role on business networks like this is to "post stuff" or to "give advice" to show everyone how smart they are.

In reality, we value members who make good comments more than we do posters, and we love posts that are just plain old text more than ones with huge images or links that direct you out of the community.

I have done my best to make it super obvious that links aren't allowed in this category so any with links will be removed. If a moderator is feeling benevolent, and if they are working on a desktop, they may change categories for you, however since this isn't even possible om mobile, the likelihood is that is will just be removed.

I hope this change works to foster more and better discussions here.

Windows 7 or 10?. I am shopping for a new laptop but money is tight so I was thinking of buying a refurbished Lenovo Thinkpad. The model is a few years old, but they have a tough keyboard and a reputation as good "work horse" machines. When I first saw them advertised, they came with Windows 7 and that was fine with me - an older machine with a stable operating system.

Now I noticed some of the places that sell these refurbished machines give you the options of what operating system you want - Windows 7 or Windows 10. You have to pay for them to be installed, but they both cost the same - $30.

My gut still says go with 7, but my gut isn't always right. I really don't like Microsoft shenanigans like this.

All things being equal - and in this situation they are, which operating system would you go with?

Horrible customer service. I dread waking up tomorrow morning because I X-ed out of the reminder today, as I've done for months now, not knowing they changed the behavior. I don't have time to deal with incompatible drivers and software right now.

Yes, I know, but I like my PCs so don't bother going there. I used Apple for years in past.___Windows 7 or 10?.

Seriously Google? I thought this was one of your April fools jokes when I first saw it. Someone occasionally needs to tell the emperor he has no clothes, and that looks like a real dog to me. I'll save you hundreds of millions of dollars right now by telling you no one will buy that thing. If that ever is actually brought to the market it will be like the Edsel..

It's a good metaphor for what Google's doing right now though - breaking and fragmenting everything.

An example from my experience with Google products is the "Google communities" here. I spent a massive amount of time managing and building the one I have here, in the hopes that it could be a real "online community". Unfortunately, they barely maintain the technology now.

The member database is worthless and they completely removed hangout functionality - what could have been one of the things useful for Community Building. Now it's little more than a crude bulletin board system with me and my moderators as an unpaid part of Google spam filter.

More and more I'm hearing the term "half-baked" applied to Google products, and that's not a nice thing to say about any technology company. I think what might be going on is Google is still trying to think of itself as a "startup company" - always experimenting, innovating, testing things in the market and letting things fail.

But Google isn't a startup company - it's the most valuable company on the planet and we've come to expect more. For small business in particular Google's "playing in the sandbox" approach can be especially damaging. They almost never get a return on investment from the time they spent on products Google dump, or simply "lost interest in".___

Maybe I'm just getting old, but I really don't want Google telling me what I should say to my friends. All this hype we are hearing about the brilliant artificial intelligent "assistants" Google be making for us is just that- hype.

What we can see of the current reality of these applications is absolute crap - a solution looking for a problem. The Google Calendar new goals feature is a good example. It's supposed to give you the best time to accomplish certain sessions of activities, but it's a joke. Not even a child's toy. The reason? They're starting with false assumptions, a bad architecture and flawed data.

Increasingly, it's looking like Google makes its product decisions based on what will be most fun and interesting for its developers - or to position themselves with their competitors. Our needs and even our opinions are unimportant... more »

None of these new applications even pay lip service to existing Google applications and communities. It's almost a certainty now that you will lose your investment for any time and effort you put into adopting these new "gee whiz" Google products.

I'm starting to think Google AI is the new Google Glass. Maybe someday there will be a useful product but right now it's a rich man's toy. Sure , before too long I will be able to order airline tickets by talking to my phone. But how often do I do that? - and how important is it to me?

Yes someday we will be able to talk to our phones and get useful information in return, but until then be prepared to be Google's test community again for a very long time.

More on Google Spaces. This is really ridiculous - not only does Google not get social - and they never have, they apparently don't get "use cases" either. Small group sharing? I thought that is what Google Groups was for - why not upgrade that? Now what are Google Communities for? What are Collections for? I am beginning to think that all we ever are to Google is a test community giving their engineers an opportunity to play in the sandbox.

Two pieces of wisdom about Google and their approach to social - both from former Google employees. The first was the reason Google+ was built in the first place. It was the "cargo cult" mentality.

Like the natives of islands in the south seas during WWII whou thought they could build fake airports to attract "cargo", Google thought it could attract the hundreds of millions of Facebook users by copying their technology. It doesn't work that way, and it is a little shocking it took so long for Google to figure it out.

The second was from the guy who invented Google+ - or at least ths "circles" feature, and sorry, I am not sure where I put the reference and don't have time to search for it right now. He made the point that Google never tries to solve the problems of their users - that is just a ruse, rather they use technology to solve their own problems.

Could there be any clearer example than this? It doesn't integrate with Google+, but it does integrate with Facebook, so that is apparently what it is - an attack on Facebook and perhaps Slack. This seems to mean that Google is now working against us - all the time and effort you have invested in organizing your circles seems to be irrelevant here, as is any organizing you did on your Google contact groups, and there doesn't even seem to be any kind of migration path.

We are all supposed to jump up and down for joy because Google has made still another social network. Google is the most valuable company on earth, so they can afford these little "Google verses Google" games but for the rest of us they are time consuming and even damaging.___

I broke down. Was in this part of town for a meeting and hadn't been in this place for years. If you are going to eat junk food anyway, In-N-Out Burger is the place to go.

Organized a Meetup of self-employed folks at a coffee shop in my neighborhood today. Only about a half-dozen people showed but we had a great conversation, lots of good energy. Unfortunately I blew the HOA as so often happens but I met some great people.

Could the best Entrepreneur Tips fit on an Index Card?  I never heard about this till a few days ago when I saw this report about it on public television, but it apparently made quite a splash on social media - and regular media..  A guy made the claim that the best personal investment advice could fit on an index card, with just six or seven main points.  That index card, and a report on how it went viral is attached to this post.

What was interesting is that most of the advice was just common sense - things like  "save 10 to 20 percent of your income" or "pay off your credit card balance each month".   Now what you need to know is that people interested in personal finance are a lot like us.   There are thousand of books covering the topic, countless blogs and discussion groups, and many, many investment experts earn a living by giving "advice" onthis to... more »

What was interesting is that most of the advice was just common sense - things like  "save 10 to 20 percent of your income" or "pay off your credit card balance each month".   Now what you need to know is that people interested in personal finance are a lot like us.   There are thousand of books covering the topic, countless blogs and discussion groups, and many, many investment experts earn a living by giving "advice" on this topic.   To say that all this advice could fit on a single index card, struck at the heart and soul of an entire industry.

What about us?  I read entrepreneur advice more of less constantly.  Could all I have read really be summed up with some basic points that could fit on an index card?   Honestly, I don't know, but it is worth a shot is it not?  What are the most important "tips" you have heard or read that you think were most important in developing your career or business as an entrepreneur?

Feel free to give more than one.  Maybe we will even agree on a few of them as being most important, or could vote on which ones are best and come up with our own "index card advice".

I have a few in mind, but someone else start.___

Some one just wrote me a private message with a minor personal request.  I read it quickly and didn't pay much attention to the name.  Since it was in my notices, it has now been "marked as read" and since the person didn't @reply me I don't seem to have any way to find it.   I get several hundred notification every day - is this now gone forever?

You know, I have so many productivity tools now I think I am losing my productivity!   I am a sucker for this kind of stuff though, so I will give it a try.

Cool, saw this when I first went out this morning and it's just steps from my apartment. Just walking back and I noticed it's parked in a different place. I think that means this is its usual parking spot now. Since I don't have a car at the moment this could come in handy.
