Over the years as an entrepreneur, I've had the opportunity to model entrepreneurs. Some of them have behaviors that produce the results I want, but a lot of them behave in ways that don't produce results. The latter may be more fun, but I don't want to just have fun and be broke. I want results. I want to be a real entrepreneur.
If that describes you as well, this episode is for you. In it, I talk about the 10 shades of wannabe entrepreneurs, and why I highly recommend avoiding any of their behaviors.

I would say without a doubt, yes.
In the spirit of generosity though, let me share a few insider tricks that are rarely talked about in the entrepreneur magazine and conferences:
1. Marketing trumps all: "Good product and good marketing" don't beat "decent product and amazing marketing."
2. You need a real team: Like Bill Gates used to say, "I never did anything alone."
3. Raising capital should be done in precise phasing: Bringing capital from outside sources is rarely wise right at the beginning. Bring in capital once there's proof of your concept rocking and rolling with real momentum.
Make sure you watch my free live talk for the rest of the rules.
See, the thing is, if you want to get people's attention you need to follow their eyes and ears. What are people interested in today and why? Once marketers can figure out those reasons, it's their turn to come in and interrupt the experience. They need to find out where the attention is and swoop in. If you don't get in or don't play properly (read: natively) within that platform, then you're going to lose. Period.
The truth is, this has been happening forever. So the question here is, can you move first? How savvy is your radar and how quick can you beat the competition to the market? Move first and extract the most value from the marketplace's attention, until the rest of the marketers come in and ruin that location. This isn't anything new and it's going to continue until attention remains a thing. It's just a matter of time because no platform is sacred - and that's okay.
The Story of Content: Rise of the New Marketing, a new documentary by the Content Marketing Institute, is the first comprehensive film of its kind for the industry. It explores the evolution of content marketing through the eyes of the world’s biggest leading brands such as Red Bull, Kraft and Marriott; and marketing influencers, including Joe Pulizzi, Ann Handley, Scott Stratten, Jay Baer and more. Featuring case studies from early pioneers to today’s marketing innovators, you’ll learn how content marketing has been–and will continue– to change business and media forever.
Joey and Nikki are precisely the type of hardworking entrepreneurs that the Charm City should encourage. Instead, Baltimore has made it nearly impossible for mobile vendors like Joey and Nikki to succeed.
Since 2014, mobile vendors have been banned from operating within 300 feet of any brick-and-mortar business that sells the same type of food, merchandise or service—including restaurants, cafes and convenience or clothing stores. Vendors that do face $500 in fines for each violation and can have their vendor’s license revoked.
The effect is to prohibit mobile vendors from operating in large swaths of Baltimore. The law is especially hard on food trucks, like Pizza di Joey and Madame BBQ, because of the city’s many restaurants and other food establishments. Worse still, the 300-foot rule arbitrarily treats food trucks differently based on what they sell. So while a taco truck would be banned from operating near a Mexican restaurant, a gyro truck could park right out front.
This law makes absolutely no sense—and it is unconstitutional. Its sole purpose is to protect brick-and-mortar businesses from competition. That is why on May 11, 2016, two Baltimore-area food trucks—Pizza di Joey and Madame BBQ—filed a lawsuit against the city challenging its 300-foot rule as a violation of the Maryland Constitution. They are represented by the Institute for Justice, which has won similar fights nationwide as part of its National Street Vending Initiative. A victory will secure the right to economic liberty for all Baltimore mobile vendors and empower entrepreneurs throughout Maryland.
