Five nuggets of entrepreneurial wisdom, courtesy of Steve Sammartino (and my not-so-lucid memory)

Sammartino has a way of making you understand that those entrepreneurial dreams are not so fanciful. That they are achievable, no matter who you are, and that life is too short to fly a desk all your life.

Sammartino and Liubinskas discuss startup momentum

A couple of weeks ago Pollenizer's Mick Liubinskas put in a video call to Rentoid's Steve Sammartino to pick his brain about the concept of startup momentum.

A big graphic on the Business Behind Facebook

In the online world, it seems there is not much demand for large graphics of this nature, despite their effectiveness at explaining an often complex message or set of principles. (We know this because we measure traffic with the obsessive zeal of a quantity surveyor on speed.) However, when we received a polite invitation from OnlineSchools.org to post a big graphic on the rise of Facebook, we couldn't resist.

Startup School scrapes attendee tweets to create eBook

What I personally found so interesting about this item of digital media is that it was created by the crowd and assembled by attendees (or one particularly passionate attendee in particular). And, despite having not attended the event, I suspect that it is more helpful than most of the glossy 'take homes' I find shoved in most 'goodie-bags' post most conferences.

ParkYoung’s big graphic on the four models of communication

The chart is called the 'Four Models of Communication', devised to explain communication trends that have emerged largely as a result of new technology and social media.

Vision and Focus, the Capulet and Montague of business strategy

Some quick thoughts on one of the hardest things to do as an entrepreneur (or intrapreneur) -- holding both a big vision and a brutal focus in your mind at the same time. They sound like contradictions and in many ways they are the endlessly feuding families of a new venture. You need to make them happy neighbours though.

When you tweet, do you combine personal with business?

If you are serious about building your business, you need to have a twitter account. Use it to build a following, engage in conversation, expand your reach, update your customers, make an offer or just simply float out an idle thought or two. There is however one question which remains up in the air: Do you mix personal and business under a single account?
