Gonzalez about Enthead's new service called 'Doing Business With...', a weekly video featuring organizations who hire and partner with smaller to medium sized organizations to help them gain a competitive advantage.

Criteria for selecting an organization each week to feature via video is contingent upon the larger organization meeting one of three criteria:

These larger organizations, in turn, seek smaller organizations to partner with by assessing the smaller organizations:

  1. Cultural Values

Upon reviewing a Reddit post, I was inspired to discuss the Pros/Cons of earning an MBA in the face of becoming an entrepreneur. Without having an idea yet to start a business, I decided to continue with my schooling until I was ready with an idea to implement as an entrepreneur. However, if you have an idea and are considering pursuing an MBA, here are some pros/cons:

Pros:

  • Learn more advanced financial theories/concepts
  • Scenario based analysis in business
  • Case study method
  • Time to gain leadership skills and experience

Cons:

  • Funding the MBA
  • Opportunity cost of not pursuing your idea
  • Potential lack of leadership skills and experience
  • Time value of money

Bottom line, it is my belief that getting an MBA will help you become a better entrepreneur!

STUDY:
Using data on software start-ups from 1990 to 2002, researchers unveiled that collective sense-making in starting a company to pursue a trend can result in consensus behavior among entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

RESEARCH:
Market search is a critical part of the entrepreneurial process, as entrepreneurs enter new markets to find high-growth areas.

FALSEHOOD:
When spectacular financing results in a collective overstatement of the attractiveness of a market, a consensus emerges that the market is rich, and the path is cleared for many entries, including those that do not have a clear fit.

RESULT:
When failures render a market unpopular, only the most viable entrants will overcome exaggerated skepticism and enter, taking the non-consensus route. Venture capitalists likewise exhibit herding behavior, following other VCs into hot markets. The consensus entrants are less viable, while non-consensus entrants are more likely to prosper.

CONCLUSION:
Non-consensus entrepreneurs who follow, then unfollow the trends, are most likely to stay in the market, receive funding, and ultimately go public.

STUDY:
This podcast focuses on a cross-sectional study among 277 Dutch entrepreneurs investigating how entrepreneurs’ job demands relate to their work-related
strain and work engagement, as well as their feelings of success.

RESULT:
Results of the study show that:

  1. Work-related strain is related to both less personal and less financial subjective business success.
  2. Work engagement is related to higher personal, but not financial subjective business success.
  3. As predicted by the JD-R Model, both high job demands and low job resources predicted work-related strain.
  4. In contrast to findings of other studies, high job demands are not related to low work engagement, only having low job resources did.

CONCLUSION:
Entrepreneurs can achieve an important advantage over other entrepreneurs
if they can learn to deal effectively with job demands and work-related strain.

Downside of Entrepreneurial Personality:

Miller, 2014, performed a study on personalities of entrepreneurs. The literature on entrepreneurship bears a distinctly positive cast, often with good reason.
Entrepreneurs and their innovations have contributed enormously to national wealth, and so scholars have examined the personalities, capabilities, and contexts underlying these contributions. However, despite some early work, the negative aspects of the entrepreneurial personality have been largely ignored.

Argument:

We shall argue that given the nature of the challenges facing many entrepreneurs and the consequent demands of their jobs, certain personality traits will be quite valuable to them.

Positive Findings:

These, however, tend to be Janus-faced in that positive attributes, such as energy, self-confidence, need for achievement,  and independence, may sometimes lead to negative traits.

Negative Findings:

Demands of an entrepreneur devolve naturally into aggressiveness, narcissism, ruthlessness, and irresponsibility. Given the costly repercussions of the latter characteristics, we urge more study of their nature and causes among entrepreneurs.

HIPSTER CREATIVE DESTRUCTION:
Case Study: University of Salford Manchester

Who is an Entrepreneur:
Entrepreneurs are creative and innovative, and make existing products and technologies obsolete in their pursuit for innovation (Schumpeter, 1934). Yet, there's the argument that the Hipster is a consumer not a producer of culture (Greif, 2010).

Methodology:

Consultation with creative entrepreneurs in Greater Manchester:

  • Interviews - 17 one-to-one guided interviews
  • Online survey - 37 respondents

Study Findings:

  1. Creative not restricted to one sector: PR/Marketing/IT/Arts & Crafts
