Are The Big 3 Lapped By Technology?????

Speaking on the day of Ferrari’s initial public offering, the company’s chairman who is also CEO of Fiat Chrysler said America’s auto industry needs to kick things into overdrive to keep up with innovators in Silicon Valley.

“This industry in general has to open up to disruptors,” Marchionne told CNBC. “I think we have been late to the party.”

Though Marchionne’s comments were largely overshadowed by the hoopla surrounding Ferrari’s first day of trading, they reflect what many people have been thinking for some time: Detroit may be the heart and soul of America’s auto industry, but the brains appear to be shifting to California. That’s where Tesla,Google, Apple and other technology firms are changing how cars and trucks operate. Continue reading Are The Big 3 Lapped By Technology?????

Top 7 Books An Entrepreneur Should Read!!!!!

One of the major trait every entrepreneurs have in common is reading. As an entrepreneur, you need to feed your mind daily. Books lead us into new ways of thinking, help us push through the tough times, and teach us how to become successful business men and women. Here are 7 books every entrepreneur should read. 

1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (1989) by Stephen Covey

A best-selling self-help and business book that has been translated into 34 languages, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People details the, you guessed it, seven elements that make a successful individual.
The steps are broken into three sections: dependence, independence, and interdependence, and the lessons range from how to be proactive and take steps one at a time to how to engage other people by finding win/win situations and understanding others first.
Seven Habits is a classic book about leadership and success. There’s a reason it has sold millions of copies: the lessons are timeless and they work. My personal favorite is the “Win-Win” habit, which says that one of your first priorities should be to create a product or service that benefits your customer, and then worry about the rest.

2. Zero to One: Notes Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel

The following excerpt sums up the concept of Theil’s book: “Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1.”

This bestseller is geared specifically towards the startup community as it offers invaluable advice on what to consider and what to avoid before moving forward. Additionally, the author offers his philosophy on business, which helps the reader generate new ideas he or she may not have considered previously.

3. Rework by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson

Most business books give you the same old advice: Write a business plan, study the competition, seek investors, yadda yadda. If you’re looking for a book like that, put this one back on the shelf.
Rework shows you a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business. Read it and you’ll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don’t need outside investors, and why you’re better off ignoring the competition. The truth is, you need less than you think. You don’t need to be a workaholic. You don’t need to staff up. You don’t need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don’t even need an office. Those are all just excuses.
What you really need to do is stop talking and start working. This book shows you the way. You’ll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank, and tons more counterintuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you.
With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who’s ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs they hate, victims of “downsizing,” and artists who don’t want to starve anymore will all find valuable guidance in these pages.
