I've been reading Entrepreneur Spirit Caribbean Issue 5, 2013. How did I get a copy of the magazine? One of my sisters saw it, thought I would be interested in reading it and brought it for me to read. Talk about sisterly love! And was she correct in thinking that it would be an enjoyable read and better than that I located the website which will be listed at the end of the post.
First of all there is a photo of a beautiful lady on the cover, so you start thinking that this is about an actress, singer, model. Then you read the excerpt "B's Homemade Ice Cream"and the name of the company rings a bell as you are aware of this brand on Facebook. It is one of those companies that you look at the FBpage and think to yourself that you have to try that brand and it is just a matter of time until you do, because there is something warm and inviting about it.
Then there is Andrea's Unique Art which as the name suggests, shows photos of intriguing pieces of artwork. http://www.andreauniqueart.com/
There are at least three articles on the Digital World, such as Pink Splash Media, Yours Digitally, Creative Industries in a Digital Landscape which are thought provoking and can be used by anyone as they cover concepts that are close to home. See http://www.linkedin.com/company/pink-splash-media
Islander St. Lucia is a great article on a business/businesses which are located in another island, which looks great. There is an equally great website on the group. http://www.islandergroup.com/
There is a page on " Effective Tools for Energising your Business Pursuits", where three books are highlighted, "Rich Dad's Guide to Investing" by Robert Kiyosaki of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" fame, "How to say it for Executives" by Phyllis Mindell, as wella s Business Stripped Bare by Sir Richard Branson"
I loved "Startup Weekend Trinidad and Tobago" which covered developing and launching a Startup in just 54 hours. "The first event of its kind held in the Southern Caribbean, Startup Weekend events havs been held around the workd and brings together a set of " passionate leaders and entrepreneurs with the aim to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, temas and communities" and "to develop deas, launch startups in 54 hours" as it was dynamic and inspiring.
Overall, the articles which were read were great from the view that they were real life stories where most of the persons shared enough information to assist other start ups either persevere or re invent their concepts or get a push to another level.
The website looks really promising, however that is another story. http://www.entrepreneurspirit.org/
