The Accelerated Entrepreneur – What Are We Going To Do?

Having written a business plan in the morning, only to find it obsolete in the afternoon, when I was asked by a prospective intern for Handshake Media, Incorporated, my VT KnowledgeWorks member company, "What are we going to do?", I was speechless.

Do?! We're going to do everything!

Business model tweaking, business strategy execution, business development, networking meetings, client appointments, product creation, product quality assessment, bookkeeping, human resource management…

Pick up a textbook on the principles of business.  All of that.  That's what we'll be doing.

"In what order are we going to be doing all that?"


I know that a list of goals, measurable objectives, and activities, delineated by a timeline, must be created for a course of study for an internship.  

We can use one of my obsolete business plans from yesterday to create the goals and objectives.

The activities?

I think I need an interactive interface, perhaps created by interface expert Joshua Eckstein, founder of VT KnowledgeWorks member company Agent Computer

I think that's the only medium which could convey the activities of an internship with an entrepreneur.

Do, think, see, hear, check gut instinct, choose – simultaneously.


  1. "…activities …. entrepreneur. Do, think, see, hear, check gut instinct, choose – simultaneously."

    WELL SAID!!!

  2. Thank you, Tyson!

    As a TechNite Award nominee as an Entrepreneur, you certainly know know of what you speak!

  3. A most unusual and diverting response to linking to Agent Computer (active above). If I had not Googled "Eckstein" with "cloudburst" who knows where I would still be searching.

    Maybe time was not wasted for I learned more about the leader and later about Ruby computer programming.

    A link that results in a "shock and awe" strategy? Perhaps.

    Maybe it is too early in corporate development? Ignore this comment.

    I didn't like it, but who's counting?
