      Strategies for Building a Successful Business

      Many successful businesses do a few simple things right. Here are three according to Entrepreneur Network partner Kate Volman. 

      1. Create a strategic plan. A strategic plan can help you recover from being overwhelmed and remember what your company is working for. 
      2. Invest in people. In order to get the most out of your workforce, you must make sure they are engaged and willing to work. Two ways to invest in people include encouraging your friends to read books and inviting them to training sessions.

    12. Successful Startups Have This One Thing in Common

      Successful Startups Have This One Thing in Common

      No matter how much you bring to the table, whether it’s money, experience or enthusiasm, there’s one lesson every entrepreneur has to learn sooner or later: You can’t do it alone. Visionaries like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk might be at the helm of some of the world’s most exciting companies, but Musk isn’t in the production plant assembling Teslas any more than Bezos is fulfilling shipments in an Amazon warehouse.

    14. How Physical Stores Can Survive E-Commerce

      How Physical Stores Can Survive E-Commerce

      As a digital marketer, I often rub shoulders with e-commerce tacticians lining up the next growth hack designed to undercut the competition and win the customer’s sale. Indeed, e-commerce is an intensely competitive space, where online advertising is auctioned to the highest bidder and conversion optimization is studied strenuously. As a consumer, we have unprecedented access to a global catalogue, complemented by powerful algorithms guaranteeing we only pay the cheapest price. With cut-throat competition and acute price sensitivity, a race to the bottom is in full swing, and I couldn't help but consider the effect on brick-and-mortar businesses. Consequently, I decided to investigate how entrepreneurs running physical stores are staying in the fight.

    15. 5 Science-Backed Ways to Boost Your Creativity

      5 Science-Backed Ways to Boost Your Creativity

      How’s this for mad science: Within the next 15 years, people could elect to have their brains “zapped” to boost creativity in the workplace or classroom.

Green’s team looked at blood flow as a measure of brain cell activity when people were doing creative tasks. The process pointed them to one region of the brain in particular (the frontopolar cortex), so they decided to test whether stimulating the area could make creative thinking easier.

    17. 3 Ways You Can Increase Sales Without 'Selling'

      3 Ways You Can Increase Sales Without 'Selling'

      The simple answer is, we don’t trust salespeople. We love buying things, but we hate being sold to!  When was the last time you met a salesperson who you truly believed was putting your needs ahead of his or her own financial interest?  

      As an entrepreneur, you may see a serious dilemma here. To be successful, you have to constantly sell: to customers, investors, strategic partners, employees and new hires. En route, you must figure out how to help each of these constituents embrace your vision, products and business model -- but not come across as “sales-y” in the process.
