The Squirrel and the Entrepreneur

Spent most of the other day in meetings for My Restaurant Posts. On the way from one meeting to the next, I witnessed a scene we all see at least once a day. It went like this…

  1. Sammy Squirrel has plans to get to the other side of the road.
  2. He starts by sprinting about 4 feet into the road, then stops.
  3. Car flies by at 40…

Restaurateurs Honor Banker (really!)

Recently, a group of high-profile, accomplished, Boston-area restaurateurs gathered to honor the memory of Jack Sidell.

 

I spent almost twenty years in Boston.  While I was there, I learned about raising debt and equity for restaurant chains, and just enough about their operations to be really dangerous.  I also developed a fondness for the industry which…

The Ultimate Insurance Policy – Entrepreneurship!

According to Wikipedia, entrepreneur is a term applied to a person who is willing to launch a new venture or enterprise and accept full responsibility for the outcome.

The 50 Best Business Bars

I got my copy of Entrepreneur Magazine today and to my delight, the cover story was “The 50 Best Business Bars” in the US.



I thought this was a clever and thoughtful list, primarily because we don’t often think of bars when we think of business, however the piece does a great job of explaining why a bar is the perfect place to do business as well as giving some helpful tips as to how you can… Continue

Video Blog: The I Want To Be An Entrepreneur Trend



On a flight last week, I was sitting next to a boy and a girl who were both in their mid twenties. The girl noticed the “start-up magazine” in my bag, pointed to it and said to the boy, “Hey, have you heard of this magazine?” It was an obvious and awkward moment where I knew she wanted me to ask, “Do you have a start-up? If so, what do you do?” So.. I asked, she enthusiastically said, “YES!“ and then, blushing, said “OK. Here’s my spiel.” Her “partner” winked and gave… Continue

The Owner vs. The Entrepreneur

If you are starting or already running a business and you haven't had the pleasure of reading any of Michael Gerber's E-Myth books, I would highly recommend that you grab one.

It's fairly common to see a… Continue

Director's Journal: Eau De Vie Pear Brandy: A Personal Quest





Summer has to be one of my favorite times of the year. It’s not that the Winter and Spring rains have finally stopped (I love the rain and all it brings!). It’s the fruit. The berries, cherries, peaches, pears, apples, figs, apricots, nectarines, and, well, you get the picture.



I feel so fortunate to live in an area of great abundance when it comes to many of these fruits. And Steve McCarthy, of… Continue
