Unusual Places to Start a Business


This is a guest post courtesy of Alan Grant. I thought it’d be a fun piece to share with my fellow dorks as choosing your work space can vary massively based on personal predispositions. This post highlights a couple (ahem) less than traditional ideas for your office. My advice for the day? EVERY one should have an office in a fracken tree! Now who wants to make me one? 😉 Oh and as always...

Pinterest: An Entrepreneur’s Dream?


Howdy doody all.  OK so I am definitely not yet on the Pinterest bandwagon as yet (still waiting on that invite Pinterest! Hint.

Lessons From Ike: Tips for the Battle-Ready Entrepreneur


Woo! BGB is back online! If you dropped by at all in the last week or so, you may have noticed the unfortunate maintenance signs hanging around the joint. Me with my DIY’er mentality tried to fix a teeny design issue and ended up creating a much BIGGER design issue. In short, I broke it.

How to Think Like an Entrepreneur (Because Entrepreneurs are Cool)


Yo! This is a guest post from James.  You all know that entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes guts to work for yourself, make a living without the security of a boss and a safety net, and at the end of the day totally rock at it. It takes sweat and determination, hard work and commitment. (Kind of like marriage, eh?) It also takes a brain just a wee bit off from the rest...

Recognizing The Difference Between Opportunity And Distraction


This is a guest post by a gal named Breanna. This post is a bit shorter than what I’d normally run here on BGB but I found the message to be so inline with what I’m always a’ preachin’ and sheesh… she uses Alice and Wonderland as a reference!
