I simply just love this drawing! Found it on Instagram @6amSuccess – it is absolutely on point! As it got already shared on Twitter with the words “Found some Marketing in the Wild” I thought it might be time to get this thing on the blog – to clear up the wild a bit. Thanks for sharing @blogtolearn!

My Nut Share – The WHY’s

Hello everybody,

My Nut Share, my business blog, has kicked-off last month and some readers found I put pretty much effort into ‘just a blog’ with having also a presence on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and of course the webpage itself. So I thought it might be the time to express my WHY. Why am I blogging? Why this name? And why do I want to blog about these three main topics.

  1. Why do I blog?

Obviously there are many good reasons why people or businesses do start a blog. My main reasons are that I do like blogging and I think it’s an awesome way to share what drives my mind. And especially to share it with people who are interested in it, hopefully. This blog is not going to give answers to all questions I might ask but it helps me to organise my thoughts. To create a proper blog post I am kind of forced to do some research, to learn about things, to extract the keys and to share my thoughts around them. I hope over the time to be able to build a network to exchange ideas and help to close the gap between research literature and practitioners point of views.

To summarise it: My Nut Share shall help to connect the world in a fun and enjoyable way and motivate others to not stay shut up but embrace your own thoughts.

  1. Why did I pick the name ‘My Nut Share’?

I absolutely do love squirrels and it’s my nickname. And squirrels do love nuts – to share something that is important to you makes a nut share.

  1. Why do I want to blog about these topics?

Talent

People are simply the most important asset organisation has!

Entrepreneurship

I am fascinated with entrepreneurial thinking and I do believe that intrapreneurship is still not getting enough attention by now. So I want to give a shout out to all (corporate) entrepreneurs out there.

Culture

I do believe that “Being global is not an option. It’s an imperative” (Cabrera, Unruh, 2012) – but many of us are not yet global enough. I am crazy enough to believe we can change the world or at least open up our mindsets and get rid of a couple of boxes.

Maybe My Nut Share can help to provide curious minds with a bit more cross-cultural confidence – myself included.

My Nut Share is somehow my learning process. A journey I got myself on and I am happy to share my findings with you. I am keen to see who might walk a bit with me on this journey.

Happy Blogging!

Entrepreneurs the New Economical Superstars – a Definition

It seems nowadays entrepreneurs are becoming the new economical superstars who drive change, disrupt markets, exit innovations and create competitive edges by being one step ahead. The more surprising it is that there is no existing generally applicable definition of “Entrepreneurship” or “Entrepreneur” . Some would agree that entrepreneurs are the ones who build an own company, some would agree entrepreneurs are the ones who think entrepreneurial, take on calculated risks and make things happen – no matter in which environment. Others would maybe agree that entrepreneurs are a too heterogeneous and widely spread group to be treated as just ‘one special bread’.

Definition-wise we might lack a bit agreement but I think the definition of Eckhardt and Shane (2003) is a nice one as they define entrepreneurship “… as the discovery, evaluation, and exploitation of future goods and services … [by] . . . creation or identification of new ends and means previously undetected or unutilized by market participants”. I like this definition as it is not too limited to the act of building a new business but could also be used for entrepreneurs operating in a corporate environment, so called intrapreneurs. So, novelty seems to be the cutting edge within this definition. That goes along with probably a generally applicable opinion of what entrepreneurs should be like.

As I’m quite interested in the whole research around entrepreneurship and personality I would like to share with you my findings within the next posts and am keen to get to know your opinions and views about the new superstars.

For a daily dose of inspirational and motivational quotes please find My Nut Share now also on Instagram as @mynutshare (@mynutshare on instagram). Would love to see you there as well.
