7 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

I co-founded a company 10 years ago, and in that decade we’ve closed seven M&As, expanded our operations, dramatically increased revenue and forged strategic partnerships. But of course this journey had its fair share of highs and lows. Here are 10 things I’ve learned that I think can be helpful to any entrepreneur.

Know when to say no to a deal

Early on, an investor offered $25 million to acquire ironSource, even upping the bid to $40 million two months later. We turned the offer down.

Home Business Entrepreneur as Entrepreneur: how to be successful

The Home Business Entrepreneur (HBE) does not usually hire employees. He or she prefer to work independently. However, they are often good at interpersonal interaction. Therefore, they understand and consider other people’s feelings, including those they have professional relationship with. The most suitable type of business for the HBE is a home-based business. In this business model, customers are either individual clients or other businesses. As a rule, the HBE likes to stick with established contacts rather than switching them often. To that end, he or she will try to maintain and develop their contacts.

Champagne business entrepreneur shares why now is the time to pivot

From a young age, reading books was Kyla Kirkpatrick’s way to escape. She would always read widely – anything from the Encyclopaedia to the Bible would capture her attention.

After graduating with a Commerce and Arts Degree from Melbourne University, Kyla started her professional life in finance and banking, which included a role at the NASDAQ in London. But her story truly began in 2005 – the year Kyla found her passion, her religion, her calling.

“Most people find this hard to believe, but it wasn’t the idea of being able to legitimately drink Champagne for a living that first drew me to the industry,” she reflects. “It was the history and the incredible story of the region.”

“Champagne is this magic liquid that transports you back in time.”

Kyla explains that for some time, she believed that religion might be her avenue. However, she started to realise that what

The 10 Best Entrepreneur Biographies of Millionaires (2020)

Two years ago, I wasn’t really a book reader. I should have been though. The stories of successful entrepreneurs are always worth hearing about. Especially if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur looking to become a success in the business world.

There are only so many short videos you can watch in order to learn more about them. And there comes a point where nothing beats a book written on their stories.


The 10 Best Entrepreneur Biographies

These books are filled with knowledge, and the complete story behind their success in becoming truly great entrepreneurs.

I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t yet read all of these entrepreneur biographies; but have heard nothing but great reviews on the ones I haven’t picked up and read just yet.

Many of the entrepreneurs in this list are successful billionaires, not just millionaires. But I thought I’d categorize the title as millionaires anyway.

SEEDS Hosts Resilient Regional Economies Program With Sustainable Business Entrepreneur Judy Wicks September 15 In Wayne County

The program had been scheduled for March 21, but was postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

An early pioneer of the farm-to-table and local economy movements, Wicks is nationally recognized for developing a blueprint for sustainable, local business practices. 

Wicks’ work continues to connect urban and rural communities, farmers with entrepreneurs, investors with borrowers, producers with consumers, and engage them in a collaborative effort to build just, resilient, and self-reliant regional economies throughout Pennsylvania.

“Judy brings an entrepreneur’s perspective of regional supply chains and local economy. Her restaurant was wildly successful because of its practices, which restaurant schools at the time considered to be all the ‘wrong things,’” said SEEDS Board Member Jack Barnett.  “From that success she learned the critical importance of investing in local businesses, of local businesses buying from other small businesses, and especially for agriculture and local food providers,”  

“I’m excited that she’ll be sharing this with
