Creativity & Entrepreneurship - Key Questions From My Students

Hello Creative Entrepreneurs!

Thought for the day:

"It is not easy being an entrepreneur, but it is always rewarding. It takes great discipline, self-motivation, hard work and perseverance to achieve your dream. Never, ever give up! Live, love and fight for YOUR passion!" JJK

In my seminars and teleseminars I aways encourage my students to ask their most pressing questions. Not only do I love to help them by sharing my knowledge and insights, but I have discovered another secret. The student's questions are really a barometer of what is most important and currently on the minds of today's young entrepreneurs.

So I chose a few questions from my students to answer and share with you in this article.

Student Questions:

ADDA:
John, I have a problem focusing on ONE thing. I have many projects going on simultaneously, and several part-time creative business ventures. For example, one of my writing projects is a collection of poems from my departed brother. They are completed (long-hand) but need to be put on the computer and edited--and of course, published. I am a single mother and I fantasize that if I had two weeks of complete dedication to these projects, at least one or two would get finished! I need a system of time management. What would you recommend?

JJK:
Adda, the reason a project such as completing your collection of poems seems like a daunting task or is so overwhelming is because it's just sitting there. And yet it is calling your sub-conscious or conscious mind to do something about it. Hire a high-school student for minimum wage, or ask a friend to volunteer one or two hours each day just to get it into the computer. You'll be surprised how fast it goes. Also, others love to help you--especially if it's a project of the heart. Give them a name mention in your book for their help.

A third party also brings a new perspective to a project, or a breath of fresh air that simply inspires you to move forward.

Or...do it yourself! When I'm at the stage when I know no one can write or edit something but me--when I know it has to come from me--then I discipline myself and set goals. I make a commitment to myself to type just 3 pages a day. I must abide by this, and then 3 pages seem a whole lot less than 300 pages. Tackle it in small steps. You'll find you will probably exceed 3 pages each day, but you will certainly feel high self-esteem and be proud of yourself because you accomplished your goal of 3pages a day! In no time you will be finished and all the poems will be entered!

LANA:
How do I choose the best intellectual properties when I have so many of them?

JJK:
First of all be THANKFUL that God has blessed you with so much creativity and so many great ideas! Don't fret about this; put the excess to good advantage. For example, if you have about 10 titles for one book, choose the best one or two, and then use some of the other titles for chapter headings.

Next: Make a list of your intellectual properties and then prioritize. Take the ones that really stand out or resonate with you, and trust your intuition. Ask an expert in this particular area for advice. Some of the questions to ask are: Which one would have the most impact? Which one can I start now, considering my current financial resources? Which ones are unique? Sometimes an intellectual property can seem to be different from everything else in that category that is on the marketplace, yet it can bear many similarities with products or services that are already being marketed and consumed.

Finally: Also ask yourself-and this is very important: which ones resonate with the pulse of society or consumers at this time? Timing is everything so chose the one that is HOT now and has the potential to grow exponentially in the coming years!

DEANNA:
Can people still steal my idea after the person has signed a non-disclosure form?

JJK:
They certainly can! But you have WRITTEN proof that's dated, that proves the timeline of your idea and when the individual first saw it. If there is a copyright or trademark infringement or suspected infringement, contact a trademark or copyright lawyer immediately.

I hope this answered some of your questions too!
