The 20 characteristics of the entrepreneur

I admit that the time between this post and the last one has been longer than before. Unfortunately, sometimes life asks you to relax and calm down a little bit. It has been what has happened to me. This time, due to the lack of time to write the posts as entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship deserve I have decided to write every two weeks more or less. The most important thing is that I am here and I am back writing about what I think it is more than worthy. Hello again.

Para aquellas personas que me habéis preguntado en más de una ocasión que es eso de la P.E., aprovecho este “primer” post de vuelta de las vacaciones para refrescar estas siglas.

For those who have asked me more than once what E.P. (in Spanish) means, I’ll take this “first” post back from holidays to refresh this acronym.

In order to answer propely, I’ve been gathering the adjectives and ideas that I’ve been using in the different posts and which, from my point of view, define the E (entrepreneurial) P (person), this is, the entrepreneur. It is very important to highlight that every single entrepreneur does no have all those qualities, values or characteristics in general at the same time and/or at a high level. After all, we can’t forget that we aren’t talking about a superman or superwoman, but about people, with capital letters in my opinion: PEOPLE. (more…)

A BIKE, A STORY AND A GAMUSINA: THE OPPORTUNITY

I admit that one of the projects this post is based on got to my heart last Tuesday the 26th of September when I was listening to the radio while I was having breakfast. Not only that, but speaking with one of the people who is behind it just made me even more excited. Maybe it’s professional deformation or just “personal deformation”. I only wish (and that’s where I make an effort) that my college students and my own children learn, also, from people like the one I am presenting you today.

I invite you to know this E.P. and some of his projects. (more…)

Marisa’s secret

I admit that this week I have a difficult challenge, mainly because of the person I came to talk to you about. Although I’ve known her for a few years, in fact for more than two decades, I have to be honest: I need to confess that I did not imagine talking about her in this blog until just a few days ago. For me, she has always been a guide in the world of philosophy, art and aesthetics. Today, I introduce her most unknown facet to me: the one of being an entrepreneur person. (more…)

May the entrepreneurial spirit be with us

This week I’ve been in some acts that have reminded me how important the entrepreneurial spirit is in our day to day to move forward, to change if necessary, to achieve what we want, to make a difference and to make our dreams come true.

That’s why today I bring you some thoughts about the so-called entrepreneurial spirit and what it helps us to achieve, if we “put our foot into it”.

Have you ever thought about what the entrepreneurial spirit is?

I admit that it is the first time that I think carefully on it. But it is not the first time I refer to it when I talk about entrepreneurship and the person, indeed.

The fact is that this weekend I started thinking about how we could define the so-called entrepreneurial spirit, which, I assure you, is something fundamental for the entrepreneur. Will you accompany me?

Go Basquing: artisans of good moments and customized experiences

Go-Basquing-founder-BaliIn 2012 I met the protagonist of today’s post: Iñigo García-Valenzuela. Every time I think about him, his great project comes to mind, so that’s why it’s difficult for me to remember his name (not his business’ name). And, believe me, it’s not due to lack of memory, it’s just that since the moment I met him, his story and his project, Iñigo became Go Basquing for me. You understand me, Iñigo.
