Awhile back, I decided to stitch up some throw pillows. Armed with the free pattern I found online, I headed to a JoAnn’s Fabrics in search of cheap pillow stuffing. A few overworked employees were struggling through a growing line of customers, so I wandered fruitlessly around the store for a while. When I finally found the pillow stuffing, I took a look at their fabric section - a tired hodgepodge under a sign warning something about formaldehyde and cancer.  So I hopped in my car and drove across town to Sew LA.

Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University | May 6, 2010
Submitted by Kristen Bean. As a child, I often sat at the dinner table and listened to my mother, a special education teacher, talk excitedly about how her students overcame unfathomable barriers. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, my mother’s stories of challenging her students to overcome difficulties shaped my ambitions to become an advocate and develop a nonprofit organization for people with disabilities. Both my mother and I firmly believe that everyone can learn.

Finally, someone's saying what we've all been thinking. Don't throw out all the lessons you've heard from a previous generation of business-makers and owners, just remember you're not running their kind of business. This is the new way of approaching work, the future of entrepreneurship, and a massive call to believe in yourself. Brief, to the point, and fantastically illustrated... with a Sharpie.

Those in creative cultural centers like parts of New York and Brooklyn might take for granted the community of artists and designers around them, and the opportunities for networking and collaboration that they create. We sometimes forget the blood, sweat, and tears of people who pulled these centers together, not to mention a region's history that opened the possibility for such a neighborhood and space to exist.

For just about as long as I have known Meghan Shea and Michael Rogers, I’ve been following their worldwide travels and simultaneously trying not become enraged with travel jealousy. This is especially difficult when I hear they are in some exotic, far off location, while I am (seemingly) locked into my 9-to-5 existence to support myself, leaving me filled with wonderment about how they make it all happen and still make a living. The answer is that they made their work encompass this element of travel, all in the pursuance of a career path they love as documentary filmmakers.

If you're like me, starting a new business can mean acquiring a multitude of new skills. Enough so that I keep circling back to the same question: Should I go to grad school? For many people thinking of striking out on their own, graduate school may be a perfect place to sharpen business acumen, network, or fine-tune a business idea. And for those who aren't finding work right now anyway, returning to school may actually work out in their favor. But for those weighing the loss of present income against future gains, it can be a tough decision.
