25 Lecciones del Póker para Emprendedores

Vía http://damianvoltes.com/
Me encanta jugar al Póker. Especialmente durante las vacaciones de verano, época que suelo ir bastante seguido a jugar al Texas Hold’em en el Hotel Conrad.

Lo interesante de este fascinante juego es que le encuentro bastantes similitudes al Chouette, una variante del Backgammon al que solía jugar con unos amigos entre mis 20 y 30 años.

Pero, también le encuentro similitudes con el mundo del entrepreneurship y los negocios.

A continuación me gustaría compartir con ustedes algunas lecciones del Póker que, a mi criterio, son válidas a la hora de emprender (se aceptan más lecciones en los comentarios de este post): Leer más “25 Lecciones del Póker para Emprendedores”

Intern to Employee: Making the Transition

Hello readers, my name is Christian Romer.

I am an International employee of AgencyNet from Freeport, Grand Bahama, Bahamas.

Japan ads courting feline business travelers


I don’t speak Japanese, but I’m pretty sure this hotel booking Web site is setting itself up, in the ad below, as the premier travel planner for today’s business-cat. Considering Hello Kitty’s inexplicable popularity, overlooking this market could be a mistake. But the point, I think, is to show how user-friendly the Web site would be if an actual human used it. If so, well done. Communicating across language barriers is one symbol of an effective advertisement. If not, then I would like to know who made the cat’s glasses and shirtless collar. Via Jezebel.

Small businesses in need of marketing help already have countless resources out there at their disposal, including crowd-based efforts such as FreshlyBranded and Concept Feedback.
