Weekly Review May 15-21

Sunday at Acceler8Success Cafe is the time for looking back over the past week. It’s a time for review as with so much going on at Acceler8Success Cafe I know it’s easy to miss a newsletter or two. Possibly my Question of the Week slipped by without you noticing, or an announcement I may have made just seemingly got lost amongst the busy news feed.

Just like an experience at your local cafe, I really want Acceler8Success Cafe to be conveniently located when you desire or need to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, and catch up on some reading. My goal is for Acceler8Success Cafe to be your virtual cafe. A place where you may frequently visit to enjoy a few minutes to yourself. I’d like the experience to be memorable by providing learning opportunities, by presenting a different perspective & insight, by spurring thought & reflection, by encouraging interaction, and by spotlighting topics that, frankly, may not be as front and center as they should or need to be.

Acceler8Success Cafe is open for business seven days a week. For the benefit of current & aspiring entrepreneurs, this daily newsletter is delivered each morning. As a way to jumpstart the week ahead, a weekly review is delivered each Sunday morning listing the articles you might have missed during the previous week. My goal is to provide an opportunity for you to begin the new week informed and with ideas that possibly could accelerate your success.

Adapting to Change; a Moving Target

One key to success in a business owner’s life is to learn from mistakes. Although the mistakes may not have been intentional, they’re real, nonetheless.

Overcoming Fear

As Mental Health Awareness Month continues, I wanted to be sure we keep it front and center. As such, I’ve given it some personal thought this morning as I found myself reflecting upon the past few years and where things are today. What should I be doing moving forward? What lessons have I learned? How do I address my own personal fears?

Do Your Homework BEFORE Buying a Franchise!

Ray Kroc once said, “If you work just for money, you’ll never make it, but if you love what you’re doing and you always put the customer first, success will be yours.” But is success guaranteed when buying a franchise? Absolutely not so please do your homework BEFORE buying a franchise.

Poker & Entrepreneurship: Games of Skill?

Thinking about poker and the skills necessary to win – whether in a neighborhood or professional game – has me also thinking about the skills entrepreneurs must develop and hone to succeed in their endeavors.

Question of the Week: What skills are necessary for today’s entrepreneur to succeed, and at a high level?

Franchise Success: It Takes More Than an Investment & Hard Work!

As detailed and comprehensive as a franchise system may be, it still is not enough for most franchisees to succeed without their own desire, drive and determination. And not just words.

Keeping our Servicemen AND Veterans Front of Mind on Armed Forces Day

Servicemen AND Veterans. We must meet our obligations to BOTH groups!

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” – George Washington

On the Lighter Side

As Entrepreneurs we tend to want to teach our children the lessons that we have learned. Sometimes this is confusing to them. One entrepreneur sat his four-year-old son down and said: “It’s time for your lesson.” What’s two plus two? The little boy said, “Two plus two is Six.” “No, son,” his father said, two plus two is not six. “Two plus two is four.” “I’m sorry, father,” said the little boy. “I thought we were negotiating.” © Copyright Mark W.
