At this very moment, a significant number of people are dreaming about leaving their jobsand going into business for themselves.
These fantasies are fed by all the times we've been told to believe in ourselves, to embrace the American dream of going our own way and doing it for ourselves.
There's no doubt that leaving behind a routine job and becoming your own boss is exciting, and many of those who set off on that path find personal and professional fulfillment there.
But in any endeavor, reality is better preparation than fantasy. And when it comes to entrepreneurship, the reality is complicated.
Here are some of the things you don't hear about it--but should:
There's a dark side. The sad truth is up to 90 percent of new businesses--including entrepreneurial startups--fail within a few years. It's inspiring to hear about an Amazon or a Zappos, but the risk of not making it is real.
Passion alone won't cut it. We've heard it a thousand times: Passion will prevail. And that's true, but only up to a point. In the long haul, success has a lot more to do with less exciting character traits: patience and endurance.
It takes years of hard work to build a business. Many believe that entrepreneurship means shorter hours and more free time. In reality, entrepreneurship means building your business carefully and faithfully day by day over a period of years. If there's a true secret to success, it's hard work, period. Or, more accurately, very hard work. Being in business for yourself is definitely rewarding, but you have to be ready to work harder than you've ever worked for anyone else.
Isolation is a fact of entrepreneurial life. The thought of flying solo is exciting--but it can also be stressful and even lonely. When you work for an established business, you have a trusted network of colleagues to tap into for feedback, a safety net of shared responsibility, and the chance to connect with familiar people during the workday. Isolation is a significant factor in the lives of most entrepreneurs.
To lead others, you must manage yourself. In the popular imagination, entrepreneurship is just about having an idea. But successful businesses--even those with just a single employee--have great leadership. And the best leaders know, above all, how to manage themselves.
You probably won't get rich. Another misconception is that entrepreneurship is a good path for becoming filthy rich. The rewards are many--but if what you're ultimately looking for is wealth, creating a business is probably not the best way to go about it.
A crisis of confidence is probably in your future. Entrepreneurs are generally confident people who hold deep convictions. But for most of them, at some point, the responsibility and high stakes combine to create a devastating loss of certainty in themselves and their work. When you feel hopeless--and you will--you have to be able to work hard to overcome any self-doubt, any feeling of doom, or any situation that feels overwhelming.
Don't fake it, ever. I leave this to the last because I feel it's the most important. "Fake it till you make it" is a popular mantra, but I believe in the integrity of being what you are in the moment. The secret of success is to be yourself--flaws and all.
Entrepreneurship isn't for everyone, and that's OK.
But those with the heart of an entrepreneur will always go through life making more opportunities than they find. They will overcome more challenges than they ever thought they'd be capable of and--above all--they never confuse a defeat with a final defeat.

ManageEngine mengeluarkan Wifi Monitor plus.

ManageEngine the real-time IT management company, today launched WiFi Monitor Plus. Available immediately, the free diagnostic app lets IT admins in SMBs and large enterprises monitor, analyze and survey WiFi signals in any area, directly from their Android mobile devices. WiFi Monitor Plus is available for download at http://ow.ly/zsHg9.

WiFi Monitor Plus offers both Analyzer and Surveyor modes, making it the first WiFi monitor to offer both modes in one app.

Analyzer mode lets users view available networks, graphs of the scanned networks' signal strength, and channels with interference. The information helps users take appropriate actions to optimize WiFi connectivity.Surveyor mode allows users to survey a site for the best signal strength. The heat map feature indicates the strength of the scanned WiFi networks. Users can upload their floor plans and survey different locations on the site for signal strength.

The application's simple, user-friendly GUI helps users quickly access relevant data including best signals, overlaps in a channel, and site locations with the best signal strength. The app also has a Channel Graph widget that users can add to their devices' home screens to instantly access the information without having to invoke the app. With this free app, IT admins gain valuable insights such as the need to switch off specific channels due to interference or deploy access points to help improve WiFi connectivity.

WiFi Monitor Plus has smart filters to show signals with the best strength by default and also by frequency. It intelligently filters out the weak signals, making the interface clutter free. Users, however, have the option to view all the signals on a single graph.

“IT admins responsible for ensuring good network connectivity will immensely benefit from this app,” said Vidya Vasu, head of the ManageEngine community and Free Tools. “The channel interference graph that shows both co-channel and inter-channel interference is a unique functionality that adds value by equipping the IT admins with actionable information. They can quickly decide on a course of action such as turning off a channel to increase the WiFi signal strength.”

Users who have tried the beta version of WiFi Monitor Plus have been particularly impressed with the app's level of functionality and detail.

“Good app! I used [WiFi Monitor Plus] to quickly map out our WiFi setup and enjoyed using the function to see which APs were interfering with others,” said Charlie Smith, technical director at Charles Dhekelia Ltd. “I have previously used WiFi Analyzer for jobs such as this, but the ManageEngine solution does provide a lot more functionality and granular detail, which is definitely useful to have.”

Chris David, solutions implementation specialist at Enterprise Bank & Trust, said, “One of my favorite features is that I can set the analyzer to show all networks or just the best networks. This is actually really handy if you are in a noisy area. Kind of hard to make heads or tails of the data when there are several networks that are just barely in range clogging up the graphs. I also like all the details you can get in the WiFi scan. We're IT — we love details!”

Menyambut booming e-commerce Asia Tenggara

Message for Southeast Asia’s brick-and-mortar retailers: E-commerce companies could soon be eating your lunch.
That’s according to a recent study by UBS UBSN.VX +0.06%, which showed the region’s consumers are already flocking to e-commerce sites at the expense of traditional retailers’ platforms.
Internet penetration in the populous region is higher than many assume, and will soon skyrocket thanks to the increasing use of low-cost smartphones and the availability of mobile Web connections, according UBS’s head of research and strategy in Thailand, Raymond Maguire, who authored the report.
That threatens traditional retailers, since Southeast Asia’s consumers are already visiting online retailers 41 times for every single visit to traditional platforms, despite obstacles such as poor retail logistics systems and limited credit card usage. Online retailers, which have already gained market share on brick and mortar stores, will flourish as more and more users get Web access, Maguire writes in the report, which was released last month to UBS’s clients.
“The power balance has already tipped to the online platforms,” Maguire said. “The traditional retailers really have to get their act together.”
While he noted the region still lacks significant price disrupting online retailers that offer goods at deep discounts, he identified LazadaRocket Internet‘s Southeast Asia Amazon clone, as being popular in many markets. Maguire also pointed out that companies making in-roads in the region include Chinese ecommerce giant Alibabaand Japan’s biggest online retailer, Rakuten.
While online shopping in Southeast Asia only accounts for 0.2% of all retail sales now, if it rises to 5%, the market could be worth some $21.8 billion. By comparison, in China, e-commerce accounts for 8% of retail sales.
In what he says is a first, Maguire analyzed traffic from the 10,000 most popular retailing sites in individual markets using big data algorithms. He found that visits to e-commerce sites were far higher than to traditional retailers, which accounted for just 2.4% of visits.
Maguire likens Southeast Asia now to China between 2006 and 2008, when Internet penetration more than doubled as multitudes of consumers snapped up PCs equipped with broadband connections, leading to the rise of successful e-commerce firms.
Indeed, some 199 million people in Southeast Asia are now online, Maguire reckons. That is significantly higher than an estimate by market-research company comScore last year, which put the number at 62 million.
Maguire projects the number of people online in Southeast Asia will rise 48% to 294 million in just three years. Meanwhile, Internet penetration across Southeast Asia now stands at 32%, and will rise to 48% by 2017, he estimates.
