Have you ever heard of the phrase serial entrepreneur?
If you’re not familiar with that phrase then let me give you my personal definition of what it means.
To me a serial entrepreneur is someone who start’s multiple businesses, it can be online or offline, the location doesn’t really matter.
To them, owning a business for seven or eight years is not the goal. They are looking to start and create a successful business as quickly as possible and then sell it for a profit.
And although, I’m not a serial entrepreneur, I do recognize some of the people who are successful at doing it. One of those people is Mitch Thrower.
Mitch is someone you should check out. His name might not ring a bell as a Sir Richard Branson does (yea, he’s one of the kings at serial entrepreneurship. The virgin group has over 400 companies in it) but Mitch does have some valuable insight on what it takes to be an entrepreneur.
I loved his “find a networkable comma” concept. Check out the video of him doing a presentation. I’d like to hear what you think.
What were you able to take away from this video? Do you have a networkable comma? Leave me a comment below.
In your lifetime as an entrepreneur, you’ve probably experienced your fair share of problems. Whether it was financially related or on the personal side, you’ve faced different obstacles along your journey.
Now what if you combined those problems with being of a different race, and coming to a new country. Do you think you would still be able to pursue your entrepreneurial journey?
Here’s a video from entrepreneuronline with Gurbaksh Chahal on how he turned some very big obstacles into opportunities. He’s become a well known serial entrepreneur who’s responsible for several multi-million dollar businesses. Let me know what you think of his story.

As a small business entrepreneur, you will have a lot of things you will hear about what you should or shouldn’t do if you want to build your business.
Some of the advice is quite useful, and will be a big help in growing your business.
However, there is also some very bad advice that can lead you down the wrong path in business. Some of that advice that I have personally been fed and found to be useless is the good ole business plan.
You’re told if you want to build a business, then you create a business plan. That a business plan will guide you.
Well, not only is that bad advice if you’re looking to start a business today, it’s also one of the things that well known serial entrepreneur Steve Blank talks about in this helpful video.
Check out what he has to say about going to school if you want to start a business today and how college kids actually get entrepreneurship.
