Entrepreneur turned author Dave Ingram has a new blog about the entrepreneur’s life. It’s called Bedtime Stories That Keep Entrepreneurs Awake At Night. Each post answers a sort of question a child might ask – if the child dreamed of starting a business.
Lots of business people write books (a phenomenon we documented complete with Ingram quote here) but Ingram has found a clever way to soften the technicalities. He is shaping each vignette as a bedtime story, and the posts are short.
Ingram, who started the staffing firm Capital TechSearch, has a book coming out by the same name.
Today he’s asked a question that I use in interviews all the time — What’s the craziest situation you’ve encountered as a business owner .
“For me, the key to putting my head on the pillow at night and getting the 40 winks I so desperately need is to know that anything we’ve been through as a company can only make us stronger, as long as we go about solving our challenges with a carefully developed set of processes, standards and ethics.
I sleep on this: most problems are solvable, and, even with that being said, nobody knows it all.”
[…] like the fact that they mentioned we keep these posts brief. Works better that way. Thanks to […]
