Accelerate Your Business: The Pros Descend Upon Denver

Accelerate Your Business: The Pros Descend Upon Denver

As I launch my new blog site, it seems only fitting that the first entry post would be about the recent Accelerate Your Business conference held in Denver, CO. The event was put on by Entrepreneur Magazine and sponsored by Microsoft and Dell. This was my first #acceleratebiz conference, and for being free, it was pretty fantastic. I almost think this event should cost...but don't tell them I said that!

#MogulMonday - 05/23/16 "Switch it Up"

Hey, hey mogulers, it's Mogul Monday! If you're like me you're absolutely bumming about the #Cleveland #Cavaliers dropping the last two games in the Eastern Conference Finals. But, I'm sure they'll eventually pull it out and win the series. The coaching staff, headed by Tyronn Lue, will strategize and come up with some adjustments for the players to make. The players should (and hopefully will) internalize those changes and put them into effect for game 5 back in Northeast Ohio. That will hopefully bring about a positive effect for the Cavs (and notch in the 'W' column). But it all starts with making changes, switching things up a bit -- maybe big, maybe small. But changes nonetheless.

ARCHIVES: May 16, 2016      Entrepreneurship     Inspiration     #MogulMonday

by Jamaal Curry

Happy Monday mogulers! This is the first official #MogulMonday post. Each Monday I want to blog and/or vlog something that will help inspire you on your entrepreneurial journey. We'll explore trends, technology, articles, etc., and sometimes I may just post wee little nuggets of inspiration to keep motivating you. I also plan to post videos on the Mogul Status YouTube channel. With the new YouTube rules, you have to have 100 followers before you can create a unique URL for your channel. So for now you can use this one: http://bit.ly/22e6OJk to take you straight to the MogulStatus.com YouTube channel. And don't forget to subscribe!

In addition to #MogulMonday posts, I will also be doing "Mogul of the Month" once a month, where I will be profiling fascinating entrepreneurs. You might not have even realized that some of these folks are straight-up moguls, son!

That said, here is a little inspirational commercial I've seen recently from Cadillac. It's called "Don't You Dare," and it's basically a play of words in a reverse-psychology sense daring you not to be an innovator, or go after your dreams. I like this spot because I know many of us face challenges in the pursuit of our entrepreneurial endeavors. Sometimes, they're in the words (and lack of encouragement) of those around us. So, I dare you to take that calculated risk. I dare you to challenge the stable, steady and secure and disrupt the traditional work model norms. I dare you to exercise your creativity, and boldly pursue those dreams in your mind. Write that book, finish that degree, start that business, open up shop...I dare you! :)
