To be a success in the city that never sleeps takes a lot of resilience and knowledge in the industry. 

As marketers, entrepreneurs and business leaders it is important to know who your competitors are!
Female entrepreneurs are shaking up the business world in New York! One of the worlds busiest cities for success in being over thrown by the underdogs of society. 

Women in the business are showing men how it's done, annihilating the female stereotype for delicate and poised women to their advantage and creating a storm in their firms. 
I ditched corporate life for entrepreneurship when I was just 25 years old. I wasn't scared, I was excited, because I didn't have any real responsibilities and I owned my own home with my steady boyfriend at the time and life was pretty dandy. 
I absolutely love hanging around ATV listening to every single tech entrepreneurs story and dream. They all have "Big Dreams" and that is the mandate of being here at Atlanta Tech Village - but there is one problem. Can they make it commercial?

I've been here since the first few people moved in. I was here when they were knocking down walls and renovating. I have seen a lot. Many entrepreneurs come and go and there's a few that made it big like Yik Yak, Bitcoin and Chevy. They were the one's that raised a lot of capital and rolled out their businesses, taking them to the next level. From my knowledge, all with investor buy-in.
We have had an abundance of positions available at Marketing Eye lately due to the high growth nature of our business, and our relatively new inside sales model - which is working a treat.

Our team have been interviewing hundreds of candidates and its interesting to see how many of them perform in an interview setting, or as many would say, on the first date.

Here are 15 things to consider when going for an interview:

 It's a Saturday and I am sitting in my friends living room talking business while at the same time reading emails and catching up on the latest in business news.

As we talk I realize that entrepreneurs are no different from celebrities, movie stars, singers, musicians or any other career that is centre stage.

The reality is we all have a bit of neurotic behaviour in us - whether we like it or not.  Some entrepreneurs are more neurotic than others - micro-managing, controlling, double A-Type personalities that find it hard to accept another person's way of doing things, and then others just tip the iceberg.

Many entrepreneurs have a goal, or an idea of where they want to be. They are achievement orientated and often lack discipline, needing to hire the latter in to complement their existing skill base.
 

Walking along the canals in Amsterdam this morning, I came across this piece of art. A park bench made out of old books.

It is a piece of art and each book has a story that it wishes to tell. Each book was put together by people who loved what is inside and wanted to share it with others. Each page is full of dialogue from authors all over the world, wanting to explore their inner most thoughts, passion, and view on something that they believe is meant not just for themselves but for others around them.

We each have a story to be told - don't we? As I sat in a coffee shop with my friend Huib today, we discussed some interesting life stories that people have shared with us in public forums. What we believed was a good story and some that we thought could be told in a different way, or perhaps should not be told at all.
I can't sleep. Too much is going through my mind. I toss and turn all night long and wake up in the wee hours desperate to fall back asleep again, but not able to because I am thinking too much.

It's a problem that many small business owners face time and time again. I am no different.
If you read my blog regularly, you may recall that travel is something that I am not only passionate about, but I take fairly seriously.

I have travelled the world-over with friends, on conferences and for business, visiting the most amazing places including Turkey, Dubai, Barcelona and more recently Amsterdam.

Each year I embark on a journey to rediscover myself, my business and my world. It may seem a little philosophical, but it's true.

I do this, not in a traditional way of going into a zone where you are by yourself and you spend time thinking and analysing, but by going away to conferences. In particular, entrepreneurial conferences.
