This requires individuals to be empowered with new tool set which they can use to stay competitive and march ahead. The tool set is called

History of CrowdFunding Overview Signed into law on April 5, 2012 by President Obama, CrowdFunding provides reduced costs and opens additional sources of capital to the entrepreneurial and small business community by allowing them to leverage the power of social media. The industry has seen explosive growth in recent years. In their May 2013 report, industry analyst Massolution reported an 81% growth rate for 2012, predicting $5.1 billion in worldwide volume for 2013. With prominent investors such as Google Ventures, Donald Trump, Reid Hoffman, Mike Maples, Michael Birch and Tim Ferriss joining the crowd, the opportunity becomes even more apparent. A market in hyper-growth, with no sign of slowing down and an audience eager for resources creates the perfect storm for businesses looking to connect and offer resources to the small business community. With A&E, CNBC, and Yahoo launching CrowdFunding TV shows similar to Shark Tank, CrowdFunding is dominating the news cycle. The Securities and Exchange Commiss ...

Joichi Ito thoughts on Serendipity. From a conversation with Reid Hoffman at MIT Media Lab April 4, 2012 "Serendipity's hard. It's like meditation. You don't meditate by falling asleep. It takes a certain amount of focus. When you're a good hunter, with a bow and arrow, there's a point where you stop looking, and see everything. Without this hunter's eye, you can never see all of the motion. It's the same thing when you're looking for mushrooms. Part of it's pattern recognition, and part of it's this disciplined way of looking. Serendipity shouldn't be random. It requires hard work."

Billionaires' Advice For New College Grads 01.Steve Jobs: Live Each Day As If It Was Your Last When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last,some day you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "no" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. ~Stanford University, 2005 02.Bill Gates: From Those To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Expected My mother, who was filled with pride the day I was admitted here-never stopped pressing me to do more for others.

Emily Chang Host of "Bloomberg West" My First Job: A Turtle-Sized Break October 28, 2013 A turtle had washed up on the north shore of Oahu. It wasn't a story that would make history. In truth, no one would talk about it on the island for more than 5 minutes -- but, to me, it was the biggest story in the world. It was the first story I was assigned to write for a newscast on Channel 4. It was the summer after my freshman year of college. I decided to return home to Hawaii for an unpaid internship at KITV, one of the local stations. A few months earlier, I realized I didn't want to be a doctor and dropped out of all my pre-med classes. Harvard didn't have a communications program, so if I wanted to become a reporter, I'd have to be entrepreneurial and find my own opportunities. When I got to KITV, I had to be aggressive and ask each of the reporters and anchors if I could "shadow" them when they went out in the field. Otherwise, I’d have to sit in the newsroom transcribing tape all day. I made myself as u ...
