Damien Hooper-Campbell has led diversity and inclusion efforts at eBay, Google and Uber. Rather than turn to formal D&I training, his first goal is to humanize and normalize the experience of exclusion. Here’s how: Divide team members into groups of two and give them this prompt: Dial back in your own life to a personal event when you felt excluded — regardless of when or why. Ask each pairing to detail the experience honestly and identify a few adjectives they felt in the moment. Regroup and ask for a few brave volunteers. Let them share and don’t tolerate interruptions. The point is that there are people who are working for you right now or are trying to work for your company who feel this way, explains Hooper-Campbell. “In less than an hour, you can fast forward past political correctness and surface-level conversation by connecting with each other about something we all have in common: feeling excluded.”
You may have heard it again and again that entrepreneurship is not a dish which everyone can enjoy. It carries its own taste which is a mixture of sweet and sour spices. The mixture of both spices in a balanced way is the key to become a successful entrepreneur. There are multiple stages that the journey of becoming an entrepreneur will show you. If after analyzing yourself, your aims and what you exactly want to do in your life makes you feel ready for the next big step in business then it is advisable for you to learn a few things before you enter in the world of entrepreneurship.

To substantiate the business plan you will need to do a market research, but this is just the beginning: to increase your chances of success in business you need to become an expert in the industry, products or services you deliver, if you are not already. An initial solution would be to sign up for professional associations. An entrepreneur is not and does not have to be a man – orchestra: you do not have to be an expert in everything and you do not have to propose yourself, so you learn to work with professionals in those areas you do not master: accounting, legal, marketing, business consulting etc. A useful guide to choosing a consultant can be found here: How to hire a consultant. You risk losing a lot of time and money if you try to learn to do all the things a specialist should do, so don’t hesitate to call in experts whenever you have a specialist problem.
This may sound cliché, but my honest advice is to go for it when considering starting a new business venture, despite the fear it may not work out. One needs to adopt the mindset that the whole journey is a big experiment and that “failure” is not an option, because ultimately it is learning and growth that we will get. Focusing on the rewards instead of the fear is the real key to success. – Noor Hibbert, This Is Your Dream LTD Source: https://theentrepreneurresearch.com/.
