By Pierre Khawand Founder & CEO People-OnTheGo http://www.people-onthego.com (Note: I invited Pierre to do this guest post and be on The Startup Success Podcast after buying and reading his book, The Accomplishing More with Less Workbook. Got questions for Pierre? Add them to his Guest page before Jan. 31st!) The rumors that e-mail is “dead” have been put to rest time after time. Even though some Social Media evangelists would like us to believe that…

By Richard Bashara, Community Moderator at SoftCity We’ve all made big-ticket purchases before. It’s pretty difficult to just get up one morning and do.  It takes lots of phone calls and price comparisons before you can pinpoint what you want and can afford.  After a few back and forth conversations, the consumer usually has some good information on where to go for reviews, where the lowest prices are and who might have the best service…

So here we are, starting another week at your software company. Are you excited? Eager to make new friends, features and customers? If you are not, it will show. Maybe you’ve been doing what you’ve been doing for too long. Or maybe the press of business and constantly tending to your software application has left you just a bit bored and stale by the whole thing. You may be a developer who’s fired your employer,…

(DBF stands for Digital Better Future – it’s a ongoing series of posts on digital developments making the lives of Digital Entrepreneurs easier, better and faster in 2010.) Go ahead, admit it. You would be totally, ultra-excited to have your online content available as a native (not HTML5) app on the Apple iPhone. And you would be in very good company. Chris Brogan did it. So did Seth Godin. And Jeremiah Owyang, and Tim Ferriss.…

By Jarie Bolander, Author of Frustration Free Technical Management Building innovative products is an endurance event. Sprinters need not apply. Innovation takes time but cannot take so much time as to miss market windows. You need to pace yourself and your team. This is the only way to ensure consistent, quality results. The common trap of “we can just work 80 hour weeks” and get it all done on time just does not work. Make…

by Chris Edgar Author, Inner Productivity: A Mindful Path to Efficiency and Enjoyment in Your Work If you’re involved in a startup, I imagine you’ve browsed through a lot of strategies for getting through the early stages of your business. As I’m sure you know, it’s one thing to learn a lot of “tips and tricks” for marketing, finding employees and web apps, and so on. It can be quite another to actually put everything…

Because I now find myself – probably like you – “reading” a lot more media than paper books: digital books,  audio books, YouTube presentations, podcasts, iTunes U and more.) Every so often I come across a productivity book that stops me cold. This week’s WMR –  Inner Productivity: A Mindful Path to Efficiency and Enjoyment in Your Work – grabbed…

By Tawheed Kader, Founder, Ask My Brain Trust You’re a (digital) entrepreneur, a business owner, CEO, starter, or whatever the word du jour is to characterize what you do with flair. Bottom line? Your company has problems, and YOU are the one that is supposed to ultimately have the answers. As digital entrepreneurs (I like this title the best), we’ve got an enormous amount of online resources at our disposal. Blogs, videos, articles, news, and…

As part of my digital future for 2010, I’m pushing as much stuff to remember and automate as I can to applications and the cloud. But sometimes, out of the blue, that can come back bite you hard, as some painful, joyful memory thrusts its way into your consciousness. For example, on this rainy Sunday night as I was wrapping up planning my week like a good little GTD believer, MobileMe decides now is the…
