07 Jan Shopify
I gaze into my daughter’s eyes and wonder what some of her career choices would be. While she is just two years old, I am aware of the rapid change in the landscape of society, and I would expect, just as we all did to our parents, and our parents did to their parents, that I hear that phrase, so many parents have once heard, “Mom, Dad its different now. It’s not like it used to be in your time.” I chuckle to myself as I write this, almost convincing myself that I am prepared for that time, when honestly I know I am so not.
I was raised to go to school, get an education and then select from a couple of career paths, yes I had two choices. I could either be a doctor or a lawyer, which by the way, I am neither. Now remember what I said above, TeamParent – 0 TeamChild – 1. I am actually an Entrepreneur and in my quest to conquer our capitalistic society I come across many tools to either enhance your idea or make your operation more efficient. Recently I ran across Shopify, which allows you to create an online store of any type and basically open a business in 3 easy steps. It’s pretty cool. Presently they have teamed up with the Huffington Post are running an insane campaign, where you can win $50,000 and a trip to New York to meet one of your mentors. I’m talking Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Chase Jarvis kind of mentors. So to all my fellow entrepreneurs, whether it is art or fashion, desserts or electronics, Shopify may be able to assist in getting off the ground sooner rather than later.
