    Business Model Generation

    Business Model Generation

    Business Model Generation caught my eye in a book store in December – It is rare I find myself in book stores anymore given how many books are sent to me as a blogger and my preference in reading on Kindle or IPad.

    Becoming a Leader: Risky Business

    Becoming a Leader:  Challenge #13–Learn to Evaluate Risk Risk is part of business, relationships, life, change, you name it.
