Here are five insurance policies that will benefit solopreneurs and who should use them.

“I know your head’s spinning.”

Have you ever heard a presenter offer that assertion at the end of a whirlwind-of-content presentation? As an audience member, how did it make you feel?  Was your reaction to dismiss it and go back to checking phone email, or was it frustration, because you attended with the hope of getting at least some information or clarification regarding the presentation topic. Regardless, there is one thing for certain: You did not attend with the hope of leaving with your head spinning.

Digital Assets Are the Future

Digital assets are anything you have in digital form, with the right to use, sell or modify. If you do not have the right to the data, for example an image from a search engine, that is not an asset. There are currently so many forms of a digital asset that it is difficult to discern what isn’t an asset. The primary reason for that is the access that everyone has to digital media, data and programs.

The list of items considered digital assets is much longer than the few examples I’ve provided, but the internet has given us access to all data types. Our world has moved away from the paper, physical items that we hold. We all have photos on our phones instead of photo albums; we send documents via cloud services and watch

When I started my business eight years ago, I thought I knew everything I needed to know about being an entrepreneur.

I quickly discovered I knew nothing about running a successful business.

In those years, I realized how challenging it actually is to provide a service and differentiate yourself from others, especially in a crowded place such as social media. The number of digital marketers and social media managers in almost every corner of the world is staggering. There are thousands of them, if not hundreds of thousands.

These are the lessons I learned from running my business that I am now applying to my ventures.

Avoid This Common Mistake When Writing Your First Business Book


6 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


I had an interesting project come across my desk the other day. The author had worked out a solid marketing strategy for the business book he was writing. (Having a strong marketing plan is essential when writing nonfiction — professional publishers expect it.) He had secured two published authors to contribute to the book, one of whom had sold millions of books himself. And he had also partnered up with several leading executives to assist him in getting the word out once it was published. 

I was excited about the marketing plan, but something about the book itself didn’t “click” for me. I suggested the author chat with a literary agent I know for some market advice. The agent managed to put into words what I had only had a gut feeling about.
