By markwehner - 6th December 2011

Every now and then entrepreneurs tend to get hit with challenges that would decimate the faint of heart.

REEthink…Entrepreneurial REEality check

By markwehner - 24th October 2011

Too often entrepreneurs place passion above common sense.  ”Common sense” in this case is not the ever-destroying belief of the negative crowd of naysayers that fear to risk.  ”Common sense” is an entrepreneurial perspective that incorporates the possibility and need to create a critical mass required to make any entrepreneurial venture sustainable.
