Entrepreneurs should be Kind not Nice :)

As I am starting up my new venture, I have heard this from quite a few people but this article explains it really well.  Susan Fischer sent it over to me today.  Happy Birthday Susan and thanks.

Hey, Entrepreneurs: How To Stop Being Too Nice & Start Making Money

My first reaction to the title was a little upsetting until I took a closer look.  Being nice is not the same as being kind.

Kindness, however, allows for human interaction without the loss of integrity. We don’t have to give up anything to be kind. Instead we can remain direct yet empathetic.

This article is a must read for anyone starting up a new venture.  Please pass on the link to anyone and everyone regardless of whether they are just starting or have been at it for years.  You never know who can be helped.

If you have any tips, tricks or resources for starting a new venture please pass them on.  My email is I am open to any advice you are willing to share.
