The Entrepreneurs’ Nutrition

I’m baaaackkk! It was a long vacation from my blog but well worth as I’ve come back with more insight on entrepreneurial and innovative mindsets. From this point onwards the focus of my blog will be about the Entrepreneurs’ Nutrition. The Entrepreneurs’ Nutrition has to do with everything essential regarding entrepreneurship, from the way we tackle problems to best approaches in dealing with every aspect of an enterprise such as the finance, the operations, and the sales/marketing.

But most importantly, the focus will revolve around what it means to be a true entrepreneur and the resources we will need to acquire in becoming that true entrepreneur. And a true entrepreneur from my perspective isn’t just someone who takes out capital to start an enterprise in hopes that they can convert their passion into money, it also includes someone looking to lead a more fulfilling life!! Its a learning experience for everyone including me so feel free to pitch in thoughts and insights on the different topics that I propose regarding the entrepreneurs’ nutrition.

Look out for my next post!! And feel free to drop a comment below for what you’d like to see on this page 🙂

Eating nutritiously when open for business!

Healthy eating is vital to our well-beings and quite frankly, it makes us who we are. If you are an entrepreneur or business man, one thing you must not forget is taking care of yourself, and while working out daily is part of the equation so is eating the right foods:

Examples of right foods include:

  • Strawberries
  • Cantaloupe
  • Egg whites
  • Whole grain bread

Of course there are many more:

 

Many times in business we tend to get so stressed out that we succumb to foods such as fast food, meat loaf, macaroni & cheese

 

 

 

These foods may seem enticing. But BEWARE of how it can affect your body!!

And later in life, eating such foods consistently can lead to complications. In the short term, it can lead to trouble concentrating, anxiety, and depression. And in the long term it can lead to diabetes, blood pressure, and even cardiac arrest!

This is all just an FYI out there, for business men and entrepreneurs that become so bombarded with work that they just don’t get time to think about such factors.

 

 

Optimists’ nutrition for salesmen, entrepreneurs

Nutrition doesn’t have to include eating the right kinds of foods as opposed to fatty ones, i.e. hot dogs, hamburgers, it also includes how we wire our state of minds. The way I see it is that if we think in a pessimistic manner, we are bound to walk in the direction of failure. However, if we induce our minds towards optimistic thinking, then we are more prone to success because basically our minds are telling us that anything is possible!

There are a lot of people out there who have a bad habit of thinking negatively. They are described as small people because they are not open minded towards other avenues in life and are very cynical minded by nature.

If you are a product manager, salesmen, or entrepreneur trying to kick start your small business, it is extremely crucial that you adopt positive thinking into your everyday life. It is always optimists who succeed and who successfully transmit their charisma to others.

Optimists are the individuals who are able to manage their time well, while also working out a solid balance between professional and personal lives. They are the ones who are able to plant a smile on everyone’s face, while also serving as the motivator of a team making everyone else around them believe that they can do the impossible. Most importantly, they condition themselves to view even the impossible as possible. Finally, they have taught themselves to be naturally happy, which is also one of the keys to success!

What are your thoughts on optimists? Feel free to leave a comment below 🙂

Blog update!

How is everyone doing? Hope you guys had a cheerful day today! So anyway, I just want to make a few updates to readers of this blog. I know that when most of you guys, whether you are following my blog or not, read my blog you are expecting tips on how to start your own business, on-line or off-line.

I know there has been quite a bit of confusion because I’ve talked about topics that are so left-field such as investing, and I know many of you guys are confused because I bring up topics that deal with more philosophical issues such as mindfullness and how to think. Well the truth is that if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you will have to adapt to such mindsets as thinking optimistically, eating right, staying fit by going to your local gym, and surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals. There are more and I’ll get to them eventually.

So what I’ll be talking about from now on are only topics concerning avenues of success in business and this includes mindsets that augment success as well as sales/marketing paradigms as that’s what I do for a living, marketing!

Living the 80/20 Way

Can you spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S. If so holler as loud as you can!! Living the 80/20 Way is a book written by Richard Koch and it is truly a wonderful book for the like-minded entrepreneur or any average individual looking to absorb the most of life.

I truly feel that after reading this book, with lots and lots of effort any like-minded individual can turn their life around.  A lot of us worry about making more money, achieving more success, and gaining more fame and feel that the route to such factors is to do more when this isn’t the case! Allow me to summarize the book in the form of bullet points.

  • 20% of our efforts leads to 80% of the results. Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, & Michael Jordan are all examples of people who took the 80/20 route with extraordinary success. The point is that less is more. By focusing on only the things you love or are passionate about, you can get extraordinary results as well
  • Take the 80/20 route in managing money, achieving success, relationships, and personal pleasures, etc.
  • 20% of customers are what lead to 80% of sales for any business
  • Decrease the clutter as much as possible, this includes buying only the furniture, utensils you need, downloading only the iPhone and iPad apps that you need, buying only the clothes that add meaning to your personality, and only participating in activities or hobbies you adore
  • Thinking and concentrating about only things that matter and add zest to your life
  • Figuring out what your happiness islands and achievement islands are, and camping out on these islands
  • Determining what your 80/20 destinations are, and taking the 80/20 route to get there
  • Less is more, less is more, less is more!!, Not more with more, LESS IS MORE!!

Need I say more, I may reference this blog entry or the concept in my future blogs, as this should be the path to success in any department of your life, not just working and making a difference in this world. Because the truth is that it is your inner peace, happiness, key relationships, who you’re with, type of friends circle, intertwined with passion of course that propel you to success aside from just working hard.

Working long hours is not for everyone and if you’re someone who realizes that working long hours is expending energy, CUT IT!!

If you are an advocate of the following statement: “Ultimately, we must all have 80/20 Vision!!!, not 20/20 Vision”, then please like this blog.  And if you have not read the above book, once again the title of the book is “Living the 80/20 Way” by Richard Kotz, then I highly suggest that you read it!

What’s your 80/20 destination? Feel free to leave a comment below explaining it. I’d love to hear from you all!!
