To Do List for Success

In the Harvard Business Review (HBR) article “Stop Reading Lists of Things Successful People Do,” Emre Soyer and Robin M. Hogarth argue that such lists “may be not only useless but also potentially harmful.” As an entrepreneur, it’s always interesting to benchmark what some “successful” people have done. But as the article states, such evidence […]

Hidden toaster

I’ve been looking for a non-problematic household type bread toaster for many years. ☺ Almost all typical toasters are designed with the same principle and are very hard to clean if you are not using it only for factory sliced toast bread. Anything else you want to heat up can get between its “teeth” and […]

First sell then produce

“Dear Mehmet! Please take a look at my online store. Your opinion is very important for me.” Words from one of my long time online friends. I’m not an online store expert but a business is a business. ☺ Below are excerpts from my reply: – I like the products. – The design of the […]

Accordion… your child’s first instrument?

Maybe it was because we had a piano at home. Around the age of 5 I found myself getting lessons from a teacher on that black box with white and black keys. According to various sources on Internet, piano, guitar, violin or the flute are the main instruments the parents see as best suitable for […]

Every business needs a Tchaikovsky!

I never got along that well with ballet. Though I can see how technically brilliant it is: the harmony between the dancers and the smooth flow of the movements can be overwhelming. This can happen thanks to the music played in the background. That music keeps everyone together. Unfortunately, in the business world we don’t […]

Who reads these magazines?

A few days ago I went to a bookstore and did something I had wanted to do for a long time. I bought all of the business magazines in the store. First observation: The number of business magazines has increased quite a lot recently, and I’d never heard of many of them before. First question: […]

Avoiding headaches

As an entrepreneur you need to be always fit. Both for the health of your body and your business… Specially in the beginning, you may not have enough employees to delegate all the jobs you handle. Therefore, you may be doing various secondary tasks like from throwing out the trash to tidying up the place. […]

Aren’t you too old for this?

Recently my doctor told me, “We will live into our nineties.” I don’t know whether to consider this news as positive or negative. ☺ I know that the average life expectancy is increasing due to technological progress and the improvements in the medical diagnosis and treatment methods. One can realize this specially in a restaurant […]
