After doing some research, I’ve come up with ten tips to help all you entrepreneurs achieve success. Every person, team, business and idea is different, but if you take these helpful tips into account and weave them into your business plans, you’re another step closer to achieving your goals. Do what you love – Use your strengths, talents, skills and interests to your advantage. Aside from making a profit, it’s important to be passionate about what you do and to be happy doing it.   Have confidence -  There will always be people in the world who don’t believe in you and who put you down. But then again, there are plenty of people out there who do believe and who see the potential in you. All you need is a little confidence and optimism and to believe in yourself. Know what you want and go for it; don’t let anyone bring you down.   Use your resources -  Find individuals who value your work and business goals. Those who share similar interests with you and who know you well can help develop your ideas in the long-run. Between school resources, mentors, online resources and networks, the opportunities to gain advice from experienced individuals are endless. You can even research how the top entrepreneurs in your field reached their success in order to improve your own knowledge and help you get your business started.   Develop strong networks – Connect and collaborate with a wide range of contacts; you never know when they will be there to help you out. The key is to show your genuine interest and to connect with people. After exchanging business cards, jot down notes about the person. The next time you have an encounter, offer your help or ask about something personal they might have shared with you. The contact will be impressed and will appreciate the minor facts you remembered and took the time to ask about.   Face your fears – Just go for it. Be willing to take risks and listen to your instincts. Don’t be afraid of failure or losing money, they’re inevitable. Don’t be afraid of hearing ‘no.’ Use it all as motivation to work harder and improve for next time.   Fix your downfalls – You can read or take classes, but the only way to truly learn is by doing. Complete your research and planning, but make sure to push yourself to actually execute the business. Learn from your mistakes and improve for the future. If you feel that you’re lacking in some areas, take an improv class, public speaking class or anything else you feel needs improvement.   Manage your time – It’s easy to get distracted when you have a separate work and personal life and an endless to-do list. Set daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals and don’t be afraid to assign tasks to others; you don’t have to do it all yourself. Remember to stay focused and set the distractions aside. In order to be effective, give your undivided attention to one major task at a time.   Manage cash flows - You’re a start-up, so act like one. Money is important for your company, especially as a start-up, so be frugal. Maintain a cash log and keep your expenses on a budget. Chances are you won’t have investors, at least not right from the start. So save money, set a budget and stick to it. If need be, hire someone to take care of all your finances.   Just ask – Don’t be afraid to speak up. Ask for help, for a sale, or for clarity. Whatever it is, just ask. The worst someone can say is ‘no.’ You can’t accomplish everything on your own; teamwork is crucial. Sometimes, help can even come from an app, such as Cardmunch and 1Password.   Know your pitch – You never know when the opportunity to pitch your ideas may arise, so always be prepared. You want to keep the listener’s attention with a clear and concise pitch in under 60 seconds. Know your mission statement, goals and important details, but be sure to tell the truth and do not exaggerate.   Now take these words of wisdom and put the tips to use. With some focus, motivation and guidance, your ideas can turn into the next success story.   Sources: http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/203254 http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/230740 http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericwagner/2013/12/03/top-40-tips-from-award-winning-entrepreneurs/ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jamilah-corbitt/million-dollar-advice-fro_b_3960955.html?utm_hp_ref=entrepreneur-spotlight http://sbinformation.about.com/lw/Business-Finance/Small-business-and-entrepreneurs/10-Business-Success-Tips-for-Young-Entrepreneurs.htm

Scribble, 16-Million Colors in One Pen http://sotechiespaces.com/2014/06/scribble/ http://sotechiespaces.com/2014/06/scribble/#comments Mon, 09 Jun 2014 19:47:57 +0000 http://sotechiespaces.com/?p=5915 If you’ve ever felt your imagination and creativity were limited to the pre-chosen colors in a Crayola box, check this out. Scribble, a brand new coloring device in the form of a pen as well as a stylus, allows your inspiration to truly develop from real-world objects and colors. With this tool, you can ‘pick up’ any color that you see and draw in that same shade, like the eyedropper tool in digital programs. Interesting, right? The device’s 16-bit RGB color sensor is simply held up to any object of your choice and the color is captured and created within the pen, allowing you to bring that color to paper. If you prefer artwork on a mobile device, the stylus is planned to work the same way. The opportunity to choose and reproduce your own colors at the touch of a pen will give your artwork more room for imagination. The pen consists of five basic internal colors (cyan, magenta, white, black and yellow) with refillable ink cartridges that are used to form the colors you choose. Both the Scribble INK and Scribble STYLUS will contain 4.0 Bluetooth wireless technologies to immediately scan colors to the app, a USB connector if you want to add colors onto your computer and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Both gadgets are still in production, but Scribble creators, Mark Barker and Robert Hoffman, claim the devices will be able to create over 16-million colors, with the ability to save 1GB or approximately 100,000 colors at a time on the Scribble+ mobile app. Instantly transferring colors to the mobile app will allow you to organize and manage your brand new color palettes on any Smartphone or tablet. Although the device is not yet in production, the company plans to soon hold a Kickstarter campaign and pre-orders will be available in the near future. You can sign up for emails and learn more on the Scribble website. Whether it is a flower, picture, fruit or fur on a cat, the Scribble is said to mimic any color you desire. At a little over six inches, this pen and stylus will be easy to carry around. You never know when inspiration might hit you. With this kind of technology, the creativity and colors are endless!   Sources: http://www.getscribblepen.com/#section-colors http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/05/scribble-pen-so-many-colorz_n_5452287.html?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000030 http://wonderfulengineering.com/the-scribble-pen-is-capable-of-drawing-with-16-million-colors/

Time to start writing http://sotechiespaces.com/2014/05/time-start-writing/ http://sotechiespaces.com/2014/05/time-start-writing/#comments Tue, 06 May 2014 21:08:51 +0000 http://sotechiespaces.com/?p=5819   When was the last time you sat down and spent some quality time trying to write a letter to someone.    At NY TechDay I stumbled upon a booth called Lettrs. This is the first social media platform that helps you write a letter (literally).    If you look at their app the interface resembles the physical writing desk. You can scan and store your letter in a digital shoebox .    One needs to spend a minimum of one and half minutes before sending a letter. You can choose from their various sets of fonts and templates and customize the letter. You can attach a photo put a stamp and send it to anyone on your mail, contacts or a pen pal.    They even have an option to mail deliver your letter through a postal service.

When was the last time you sat down and spent some quality time trying to write a letter to someone. 

 
At NY TechDay I stumbled upon a booth called Lettrs. This is the first social media platform that helps you write a letter (literally). 
 
If you look at their app the interface resembles the physical writing desk. You can scan and store your letter in a digital shoebox . 
 
One needs to spend a minimum of one and half minutes before sending a letter. You can choose from their various sets of fonts and templates and customize the letter. You can attach a photo put a stamp and send it to anyone on your mail, contacts or a pen pal. Lettrs1
 
They even have an option to mail deliver your letter through a postal service. But, that has a minimum fee. It can mailed for $2, $4 and $6 . If you want to send an international mail it will cost a little more.

Gnossem, the Fashion Startup That is Breaking Barriers http://sotechiespaces.com/2014/05/gnossem-fashion-e-commerce-startup-breaking-barriers/ http://sotechiespaces.com/2014/05/gnossem-fashion-e-commerce-startup-breaking-barriers/#comments Thu, 01 May 2014 18:34:14 +0000 http://sotechiespaces.com/?p=5796 Former international model, turned fashion entrepreneur, Lisa Crosswhite, recently spoke with Tiffany Pham, a contributor at Forbes, about the journey that led her to where she is today. Now, leader of the fashion e-commerce startup, Gnossem, growing up, Crosswhite aspired to one day be able to afford the expensive designer apparel that wealthy women and celebrities would flaunt. Finding the extremes between who could wear these high-quality garments, and who could only afford down-graded retail clothing, disheartening, Crosswhite decided the fashion world was ready for a major upheaval. Her fashion startup is unlike others in its field, as it strives to bring independent fashion labels to an online platform. Modeling in Asia, gave Crosswhite an invaluable look into the fashion market, where she noticed many smaller, independent designers who she realized could have great potential, given the right opportunity. Crosswhite manages to kill two birds with one stone, in a way that benefits these designers, and ordinary buyers looking for great, affordable fashion online. Her startup has been featured seventy times in Singapore, where it first launched, and Crosswhite herself, has recently made Luis Vuitton’s “Top Ten Most Stylish Women of 2012.” An ambitious woman, Crosswhite hopes to expand her market in Korea, and later U.K., to spread Gnossem.com’s success across the globe. Gnossem.com focuses on the curation of special, finely-crafted products, which in fact, fulfill certain requirements. When asked, what designers are sought-after by Gnossem, Crosswhite explained that three factors: exclusivity, a designer’s story, and craftsmanship, are all important. Gnossem seeks products that have some special importance to the designers, who express themselves through the fabrics, the colors, and designs that make up their masterpieces. To Crosswhite, it is about giving these designers and fashion-obsessed shoppers the opportunity to cross paths. In the words of Crosswhite, Gnossem is “more than an online store, but rather a community to explore those incredibly special products.” Visit Gnossem.com today!   Sources: http://www.forbes.com/sites/tiffanypham/2014/04/30/how-i-did-it-from-international-fashion-model-to-founder-of-a-top-fashion-startup-in-asia/ http://senatus.net/article/gnossem-lisa-crosswhite/ www.gnossem.com
