    SwCA Episode 172: I Have So Many Ideas That I Lose Track of Time All of The Time! What Should I Do?

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-172-self-employment-ecstasy-series-i-have-so-many-ideas-that-i-lose-track-of-time-all-of-the-time-what-should-i-do.html


    SHOW NOTES: This series is designed for the statistically rare, yet often overlooked, self-employed individual who marches to their own drummer and loves it! This is not a series for people who want to consider future self-employment (aspiring) and how to become self-employed. This is a series for existing self-employment individuals. A very small number of people  are self-employed ‘full-time’ (not the best term but it does convey the intended meaning).

According to the Pew report, "Nearly four-in-ten self-employed workers (39%) say they are 'completely satisfied' with their jobs, compared with 28% of all wage or salaried employees." This is consistent with earlier studies showing that, in a wide range of countries, a higher percentage of the self-employed are satisfied or very satisfied with their jobs than the wage employed.” (http://www.businessweek.com/smallbiz/content/apr2010/sb2010041_151187.htm)

    in Entrepreneur

    This week on What Keeps You Up At Night, host Brendan Major is joined by Rob Gramer to talk about a topic that has recently been creating a lot of buzz - crowdfunding.

If you were ever curious about the concept of crowdfunding, or just want to learn more about turning your dream into a real business, then be sure to tune in! 

    About our Guest

    Rob Gramer has always focused his life on learning how to make things. As a kid he rebuilt lawn mower engines instead of playing with friends.

And after he received his degree in mechanical engineering, he dove into the top secret world of designing jet engines for military drones (used extensively in the Afghanistan wars).

    Recently, Rob has discovered that it doesn't matter how good your idea or product is if you can't sell it, prompting him to move from engineering into sales and marketing. He's becoming an expert at getting startups off the ground, all while working with investors and inventors all over the world.
