Episode 15 is our one-year anniversary episode and we are celebrating. Sign up for our newsletter at ceyero.com for a chance to win a copy of my book, Guerrillapreneur: Small Business Strategy for Davids wanting to Defeat Goliaths. There is also an Amazon Sweepstakes in which I offer some cool electronic devices. Click the Amazon link to enter the Amazon Sweepstakes. https://giveaway.amazon.com/p/ea72b4a8346049b1.

In past episodes, we defined Guerrillapreneurs as entrepreneurs who integrate sharing, gig and circular loop economies into their business design as a way to conserve cash that will be invested in disruptive "Slingshot" technology. Episode 15 is a Mastermind Interview episode where I have a conversation with an entrepreneur about the issues he/she faces in his/her quest to create value. In this episode we talk with award-winning singer/song writer and musicpreneur Alika Hope. We also feature Alika's new song "In Real Life" or I.R.L. (which is how the song appears on all music outlets). I.R.L. focuses on the importance of being kind to others on social media. Alika will premiere I.R.L. Monday, November 13, 2017 on World Kindness Day. We will also premiere I.R.L. on World Kindness Day. I.R.L. starts at 41.24 on the podcast.

Hollywood and social media have glamorized and romanticized the life of the entrepreneur. As Aristotle states, “No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness.” However, like other professions, entrepreneurs face immense pressure, stress and anxiety when launching their startups. Moreover, many startups are launched by solopreneurs who have no one to help them de-escalate the stress. A 2013 study by Morneau Shepell states that entrepreneurs are more likely to experience mental health conditions than the general public. The study goes on to say that mental health concerns are reported across 72 percent of entrepreneurs, compared to a mere 7 percent of the general public. A University of California study on the link between entrepreneurship and mental illness found that “49% of entrepreneurs surveyed were dealing with at least one mental illness (such as ADD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, addiction, depression or anxiety) and about one-third of entrepreneurs struggle with 2 or more mental illnesses.” In Debra Carpenter's article “Genius in Madness?" she notes that ”the lows of depression might give way to the smart solutions and ideas. A manic episode can sometimes enlighten. ADHD prompts fast decision making. Combined, these struggles may incubate tremendous creativity that inspires would-be entrepreneurs to take chances on their ideas.”

In fact, some of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs suffered from various mental issues. In his book America’s Obsessives, Joshua Kendall explains that entrepreneurs and leaders like Thomas Jefferson, marketing genius Henry J. Heinz, librarian Melvil Dewey, aviator Charles Lindbergh, beauty tycoon Estee Lauder, baseball slugger Ted Williams and tech guru Steve Jobs all struggles with psychiatric maladies.

The problem with lean startups is that most don’t have the self-care resources available for its employees. Unfortunately, this lack of resources is impacting the success of the startups. Fortune Magazine found that "13 percent of startups fail because of their founders have lost focus, 9 percent fail because they’ve lost their passion, and 8 percent fail due to founder burnout, meaning 30 percent of startups fail due to the emotional state of their founders."

According to Chris Gory, “Between 2011 and 2015 several high profile suicides rocked the startup world and brought to light the issue of mental health including Austen Heinz, a biotech entrepreneur and the founder of Cambrian Genomics, Aaron Swartz, the co-founder of Reddit; and Jody Sherman, the founder of Ecomom.

We discuss these issues Alika Hope because she wants her new song, I.R.L., to bring awareness to mental health and mental illness as well as how Social Media can help relieve feelings of loneliness. Alika Hope is the cofounder and president of The Ray of Hope Project, which works with organizations across the U.S. to address issues of social justice through music and dialogue. Alika recently won a Gold Music Award for the album, Hope for a Motherless Child, and has received awards from numerous other agencies. The Ray of Hope’s motto is Feel the Music, Change the World.

Episode14 Guerrillapreneur: the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare - Giant Slaying: How To Build A Kick-A$$ Board of Advisors For Your Startup. This is our second Giant Slaying episode! In these episodes, I discuss strategies and tactics that can help Guerrillapreneurs defeat the corporate giants.

In this episode, I am going to discuss seven (7) board member profiles that your startup should consider when building its board of advisors. Why are boards of advisors so important? According to the Small Business Association (SBA), 55 percent of all small businesses with employees fail within five (5) years of launch. This same thought is echoed in Shikhar Gosh's Harvard Business School study that indicated that "75 percent of venture-backed startups fail." The one shining light in these dismal facts is that mentors can improve a startups chances of success. Sheila Eugenio of Entrepreneur.com stated that "70 percent of mentored businesses survive longer than five (5) years." Simply, having a mentor helps entrepreneurs avoid the pitfalls that cripple and eventually destroy businesses. Check out this episode and see how you can build a kick-a$$ board of advisors. I hope it helps you. Want notes about this podcast, check out our blog at https://guerrillapreneur.blogspot.com.

Episode 14 marks the one year anniversary of the Guerrillapreneur podcast. To celebrate, we want to offer you a chance to win cool electronics from our Amazon Sweepstakes.

In Episode 13 of the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare podcast, we bring you up to speed with Guerrillapreneur News, news about the sharing, gig and circular loop economies that is expected to grow to $335B by 2025.

First, we discuss the Ford/Lyft partnership around self-driving cars. Juniper Research released the Sharing Economy: Opportunities, Impacts & Disrupter 2017-2022 report that forecasts that the number of ride sharing drivers will increase from an estimated 4.3 million in 2017, to 8.6 million by 2022. Given this forecast, it makes sense for Ford to seek a partner that can help them convert their manufacturing business into a "revenue by the ride" services company. Second, WeWork teams up with IBM to manage an entire office for the tech giant. This arrangement marks a shift in WeWork's strategy. Given it's technical infrastructure, I discuss how I believe WeWork will eventually become a full service talent management business. Third, I explain how the Ikea/Task Rabbit merger is a sign that more mainstream companies are going to buy their way into the Sharing Economy. Expect players like McDonalds to purchase delivery companies like Deliveroo. Fourth, I discuss some of the headwinds that might slow the Sharing Economy. Uber lost its license to operate in London because the the Transport for London (TFL) was concerned that Uber was not carrying out appropriate background checks on drivers or reporting serious criminal offenses when they occur with their drivers. Given this action, I speculate about the future of background checks and how ride-sharing services will operate in the future. Fifth, First Data launches a new instant "Disburse-to-Debit Card" service which enables instant payments for gig workers. This innovative solution will eventually disrupt traditional banking relationships. Sixth, Airbnb is facing a headwind in Akron, Ohio where the City Council prohibited a man in an upscale neighborhood from placing his house on the home-sharing platform. The homeowner has never had an issue with any of his guests, but his neighbors successfully argued that the activity could adversely impact their property values. Seventh, two new camping startups are taking on Airbnb. Tentrr and Hipcamp have platforms that help individuals locate and book campsites that they setup for the landowners. Eighth, I give you an update on the Chinese startup, E-Umbrella. The umbrella sharing service has lost all 300,000 of their umbrellas. Customers used their smartphones to obtain the umbrellas, but their failed to return them. I provide a few ideas on how to save the business. Finally, I ask the question, "What will you own in the future as the Sharing Economy are bigger part of the US GDP?" The answer might surprise you.

In Mastermind Interview episodes, I talk with startups in the sharing economy space and seek to learn how they are leveraging the shared use of capital to create value and save the planet. In this episode, I talked with Julie Farr, the founder of Shared Kitchens, Decatur, GA. Shared Kitchens, founded in 2008, was the first concept of this type in Georgia. Julie literally wrote the regulations that made it possible for food entrepreneurs to work in a shared space and launch commercial business concepts for a fraction of the cost required in prior years. Julie's model is simple. She has taken on all the capital risk and she markets her capacity to food entrepreneurs who can't afford to buy a storefront. Julie expanded to her services offering to manage all the administrative issues such as licensing and now packaging for her clients.

Episode11 Guerrillapreneur: the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare - Giant Slaying: How To Make A Dollar out of Fifteen Cents. This is out first Giant Slaying episode! In these episodes, I discuss strategies and tactics that can help Guerrillapreneurs defeat the corporate giants.

This Tupac Shakur inspired Giant Slaying episode provides Guerrillapreneurs the Ten Commandments for Bootstrapping the investment capital needed to develop DISRUPTIVE SLINGSHOT TECHNOLOGY. For example, I discuss how startups can save money for their kids' college education while making purchases for their businesses. In another commandment, I suggest that if a startup has an empty office or a vacant desk in your office that you can generate extra cash by creating a shared workspace. I also show entrepreneurs how they can turn their love for pets into cash for their business. Check out this episode and see how I squeezed "blood out of a turnip" in order to bootstrap my previous startups. I hope it helps you. Please leave up your feedback.

In Episode 10 of the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare podcast, we bring you up to speed with Guerrillapreneur News, news about the sharing, gig and circular loop economies that is expected to grow to $335B by 20205.

First, we discuss Airbnb’s purchase of background screening company, Trooly. Will this be a broader trend with sharing economy companies? Next, we highlight Expedia and Priceline’s strategic moves to take on Airbnb in the private accommodation market. Expedia and Priceline are using their platforms to post private listings alongside hotels listings. Expedia also purchased HomeAway, a direct competitor to Airbnb. How will Airbnb respond to these threats? I discuss six potential tactics Airbnb can execute to put Expedia and Priceline back on their heels. Third, we venture back into the pet sitting segment by discussing Rover, the leading US dog sitting service. The pet sitting segment is a small but growing part of the $67 billion pet industry. Rover has several options to continue its fantastic growth rate. Fourth, I discuss the funding of insurtech startups Zego and Trov. These two companies are helping the sharing economy expand by providing transactional insurance for delivery vehicles (cars, scooters, and bikes). Fifth, we ask the question, “Is ride sharing killing the automotive industry?” A study by AlixPartners indicates that for every car dedicated to ride sharing eliminates 32 personal vehicle purchases. This is great in the short-term, but what happens when the market reaches equilibrium? We review what actions market competitors are taking and discuss how the market will evolve. Sixth, do you love to cook? If yes, you are one-step closer to becoming an entrepreneur with the help of community market place apps, HomeCook and Shmeal. HomeCook and Shmeal give individuals the ability to market home cooked meals to their neighbors. How will existing food vendors respond to this threat? We look into the future and discuss seven potential responses. Seventh, the China sharing economy provides the most interesting business models. The latest venture is a bed-sharing service. Sleeping pods are placed around China and busy business people can pop-in for a thirty-minute nap. Does this startup’s strategy open up the possibility to time-share ownership of residential family homes? Finally, we discuss my second favorite startup, WeWork. WeWork’s recent funding round valued the company at $21B. Will WeWork be at the forefront of the future Gig Worker recruitment process? We theorize and make predictions.

In Episode 9, I interviewed brand-building guru, SarahGeorge Durham, Wix.com Ambassador and the Founder of brand building consulting firm, Three4 Corporation. SarahGeorge is a dynamic business leader and brand builder who rides a Hurley and spends her weekends as an amateur boxer. She is one of Wix.com very first US Ambassadors and in this interview; she shared ninja techniques on how to use this FREE platform to build your Guerrillapreneur brand. She shared techniques on how you can use Wix.com’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO) wizard to optimal your website and get more traffic. In fact, she references a client who was able to reduce their Google Adwords spending from $600 a month to zero just by using the Wix.com SEO wizard and here is what is fascinating, THE TRAFFIC TO THE WEBSITE STAYED THE SAME. Finally, she made us aware of FREE tools that Wix.com has made available like online Chat and online bookings that customers can use to interact with its customers real-time. Using Wix.com, there is no reason why you a David cannot compete with Goliath.

In Episode 8 of the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare podcast, we bring you up to speed with Guerrillapreneur news, news about the sharing, gig and circular loop economies.

First, we discuss Intel's 30-page report entitled, "Accelerating the Future: The Economic Impact of the Emerging Passenger Economy." Intel and its partner Strategy Analytics project that the Passenger Economy will grow to $7 trillion by 2050 driven mainly by Consumer Mobility-as-a-Service (estimated to grow to $3.7 trillion), Business B2B Mobility-as-a-service (estimated to grow to $3 trillion) and New & Emerging Pilotless Vehicle Service (estimated to grow to $300 billion). The report argues that as pilotless transportation takes hold, consumers and businesses will relinquish car ownership in favor of paying for transportation by the transaction. Read the report at https://newsroom.intel.com/newsroom/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2017/passenger-economy.pdf

Second, Airbnb is back and they are reporting web traffic higher than all other travel search sites including Booking.com, Hotels.com and traditional hotel brands like Hilton and Marriott International. Airbnb drew 106.9 million visits to its site in Q1 2017 that's up 31% of the same time in 2016. Airbnb accredits the surge in millennials seeking non-traditional travel adventures to the growth.

Third, Simon Fraser University student tackle the "Parking Space" problem by launching an app called OpenSpot. The app lets parking space owners rent the spot when they are not using it allowing app users to find parking spots in congested downtown areas.

Fourth, China continues to inflate a "Sharing Economy Bubble" by investing in a growing number of highly suspect business models. Basketball sharing (yes Basketball sharing) Zhulegequi raised $1.3 million in funding to support the roll-out of their custom kiosks at basketball courts around China where users can scan a code using their smartphone to rent a basketball. Not to be outdone, Shen WeiWei launched an umbrella sharing service called Molisan where users can share an umbrella. Molisan has kiosks that dispense umbrellas and charge user about $0.15 for a 12 hour period. Zhuelegui and Molisan are suffering from the same problem. Users are not returning the items to the kiosks.

Finally, Electric car charging station sharing startup "Share&Charge" has launched a new mobile app that will make it easier for private and public electric car charging station owners to participate in the peer-to-peer network. Owners can list their charging station on the app and can independently determine the charging method and the price of their electricity service. Vehicle owners users can the app to search for the next charging station on an interactive map.

In Episode 7, I interviewed sales guru, Scott Sullivan of Sullivan & Associates (also known as Synergenic Sales Group), who reflected on the Growth Capacity Framework and discussed how startups can OUTSOURCE Sales and Marketing and unleash explosive growth. In Episode 8, I interview Francine Gervazio, the cofounder and COO of Cargo42. Cargo42 is being called the Airbnb of Trucking because it has found a way to market the empty space in trucks to local shippers who are seeking economical delivery services.

In Episode 7 of the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare podcast, we bring you up to speed with Guerrillapreneur news, news about the sharing, gig and circular loop economies. First, According to Forbes Magazine, sharing economy companies are improving the economic fortunes of women around the world. Female Airbnb hosts in Kenya are earning enough to cover one-third of their household costs. Female hosts in India are earning enough to cover over 30% of their household costs. Despite the change in fortunes, women still lag men in launching sharing economy startups. Debbie Wosskow, founder and CEO of Love Home Swap, has launched a Allbright, a unique UK funding platform designed to provide the support and finance needed by female-led businesses to launch and scale. Second, Safr Ride Sharing Service has changed their market approach. Initially, Safr launched as a woman-only ride sharing service -- with women drivers serving only women riders. Safr has modified its approach to all men to both ride and drive for the company. However, Safr does give users the option in its App to select whether they prefer women drivers and/or riders. Third, Snagajob and Husl have both completed market test and are preparing to roll-out their on-demand service for hourly workers that is focused on the restaurant sector. Fourth, Cat-in-a-Flat, the Airbnb of the Cat Sitting space, has begun a full scale roll-out after their soft launch in London, Dublin and Amsterdamn. You will soon be able to use their app to locate a trust cat sitter for your fluffy friend. Fifth, three Chinese Shared-Battery Sharing and/or Smart Device Charging companies announced investments on the same day. According to Six Tone magazine, Xiaodian received a $350 million-Yuan ($50.7 million US) in investments while Hidian and Feichangdian received $100 million Yuan ($14.5 million US) and $3 million Yuan ($435,000 US) respectively. Finally, Up & Go, and Home Cleaning Startup started by cleaning cooperatives Brightly Cleaning, Cooperative Cleaning of New York, and Ecomundo, is fighting the tech giants entering their space. Unlike taxi cab companies, these cooperatives have decided to fight back and use technology to give them the sharing economy benefits and reach more customers.

In Episode 6, I presented the Growth Capacity Framework to help business mavericks and entrepreneurs create management capacity. The framework uses two dimensions (Do the tasks differentiate your business and Are the tasks Critical to the Daily Delivery of the Product or Service) to help founders to sort business tasks into four quadrants: CORE COMPETENCY Tasks, Tasks that represent NEW COMPETENCIES, Tasks that should be OUTSOURCED and tasks that founders should seek to REDUCE THE COST.

In Episode 7, we use our Mastermind Interview with sales guru, Scott Sullivan of Sullivan & Associates (also known as Synergenic Sales Group), to reflect on the Growth Capacity Framework and to show founders how they can OUTSOURCE Sales and Marketing and unleash explosive growth.

In Episode 6 of the Art of Waging Small Business Warfare podcast, we bring you up to speed with Guerrillapreneur news, news about the sharing, gig and circular loop economies: The Chinese Sharing Economy is growing at 40% driven by sharing economy startups like MoBike, MoBark and Home Cook. MoBike is a station-less bike sharing service that leverages smart lock technology. MoBark is an innovative "Pet-Sharing" startup and Home Cook crowdsources food preparation from home cooks who offer their dinner to lonely white collar workers. According to China Daily, the Sharing Economy will make up 20% of China's GDP by 2020. Airbnb plans to offer bundled entertainment and lodgings in an attempt to grow their top line. London-based Fat Lama received $1M in seed funding to launch its service that lets individuals share everything from toys-to-tools. Miami, Florida-based Cargo4 is helping shipping companies sell the free space in trucks after they have dropped off their deliveries.

Business Founders need to listen to this episode if you think you are an entrepreneur because you might not be one. In Episode 6, I review the 4 stages of a Founder's job transition, which includes a Frontline Worker, Frontline Manager, Executive Manager and finally an Entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs spend a majority of their time planning and executing strategies that will impact their business' growth 12-24 months from today. If you don't have the time or the capacity for this level of planning, you are not an entrepreneur. In the episode, I provide a framework (Founder's Growth Capacity Framework) to help Founders escalate a their evolution from Frontline Worker to Entrepreneur.
