Jump on the social media bandwagon

This website is suffering from world development. No, honestly. A great example came the other night when a few of us trotted up to London to see the comedian Michael McIntyre. I was blown away by how good he was, wanting to tell everyone about it.

Back in the day, the only choice I had was to whack it all up on here. But 2009 has brought me a choice. I could either go home, write a long eulogy on here late into the night, embellish the whole story more than it perhaps deserved, and go to bed exhausted. Or, I could quickly use my mobile phone to let close friends know through Facebook (and everyone else through Twitter), before quickly uploading a picture or two to Flickr. The first choice would have taken a day, and the moment might have passed. The second option was immediate, quick and easy. It’s become so simple to do, it’s a no-brainer.

So these other sites – Twitter and Facebook for little anecdotes and links, Flickr for pictures and Youtube or Vimeo for videos – are taking the spotlight away from wibbler.com, to such an extent that only the really major events are given any time on here. Nowadays I also post a lot on other sites, and you might want to know about these too. It’s all still me, I’m just spreading myself around a bit.

And that, ladies and gentlefolk, is why I’ve updated the site to focus a little more on the pictures, titbits and videos I post. It all comes neatly together into this big Wibbler hub of wonderfulness. Hope you like it…

11 Books Every Entrepreneur Should Read

Posted by | Commentary | 2 Comments

Maz with Sir Richard BransonCall me a dork (pause for effect), but I’ve always been in awe of the freedom and excitement of being an entrepreneur. Like him or loath him, Richard Branson stands at the pinicle of what I think an entrepreneur – intelligent, ruthless, lucky (!) and charismatic – albeit in a slightly camp way in Branson’s case. His book, Screw it, Let’s Do it: Lessons in Life (Quick Reads) is exactly what an entrepreneur book should be about.

Here are a few more you might like to try:

  1. The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Business Law
  2. Bootstrapping Your Business
  3. Purple Cow
  4. The Art of the Start
  5. The Innovator’s Dilemma
  6. The E-Myth Revisited
  7. Permission Marketing
  8. Growing a Business
  9. The Cluetrain Manifesto
  10. Bottom-up Marketing

Do you have any that I’ve missed?
