    a small fee and can get a bike for a full day You can pay for it right the kiosk Then pick what number bike you want When you pull the bike out of the rack it s yours to ride You can take it anywhere you want so long as you dock it in any station when you re done like RedBox When you arrive at your desination you just put the bike back in the rack and it locks itself And best of all there are lots of locations around the city as you can see in the photo below The bikes felt really secure and sturdy They also have a built in lock system so you can lock it up They ve got gears sturdy breaks and a basket for shopping There are probably some safety concerns I didn t have a helmet on me Any entrepreneurs out there that want to work on an inflatable helmet that fits in my pocket I d totally fund the idea I had a friend tell me she had an extra but I was already biking by that point Likewise cars and cabs can be tough on roads with smaller bike lanes or roads without a lane But ever since the roll out of Divvy a lot of roads have put bike lanes up so I did my best to stay on roads that felt secure In th end I made it home fast safely and on time to make the class While public transit is sometimes the best way to get around sometiems Divvy is easier And best of all it was an awesome ride Wednesday October 23rd 2013 Entrepreneurship Labor Economics No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign

    need that skill to be successful I propose that the best method to market is simply to care deeply I told you it was simple In short care about WHAT you do and more importantly WHY you do it Care about the customer Care about being generous and giving the customer the best experience you can And care about the story You don t need a degree to do that though the experience of getting the degree probably helps you understand others better But in many cases emotions hard work and a compelling mission will go a long way Just a thought Friday July 26th 2013 Business School Entrepreneurship Leadership TAGS Leadership No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please

  • Ignore the Skeptics - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    real opinion and they don t care if you succeed or not They re also often wrong The skeptics were wrong when they said that it was impossible take thousands of pounds of steels and fly it over the Atlantic They were wrong when they said you couldn t flip a switch and make an entire buliding light up And they were wrong when they said that the Internet would never amount to anything Time after time skeptics have been proven wrong Don t get me wrong it s tough to ignore the non believers The negative words get to you You keep a mental list of the names of those who said it and the things they said The ones who laughed at your business idea and questioned your choice to apply to a top school But what if the skeptics were wrong again What if you ignored them And what if instead of thinking so much about what the skeptics say what if you just ignored them and did it anyways And what if it worked Just a thought Friday July 12th 2013 Entrepreneurship Leadership No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent Posts Please vote A month in at Winston Strawn 365 Days of Yoga What I learned And why I kept going Exactly one

  • MBA Mondays: Starting a Business - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    seamlessly and quickly than they could by themselves When we do this we also help with the money and people part where we help draft agreements when a company wants venture investments or wants to hire employees or contractors We also draft agreements when the person or company wants to give equity in the company to employees or investors This is important because the business side of money and people are critical All companies need budgets and deadlines and sales to be successful They need to make more money than you spend but have to analyze cash flows balance sheets margins and return on investments to measure their success Many lawyers run as fast as they can from these things but the good ones speak the language very clearly and help business people incorporate them into their overall plan To structure the incentives and all the agreements the company has to fit its financial strategy But none of this is possible unless you work with people that are smart and compliment each other This is the people element This doesn t always mean their resume though a resume can be a good indication of what someone will contribute But it also means their passion attitude and track record Most service providers understand their element pretty well but not the entire process Lawyers tend to see the legal side Consultants know the operations or strategic aspect And bankers tend to get the numbers VCs think through much of this stuff pretty well too But the advisor is the person that understands all of the elements And the more of these an entrepreneur has the more he or she will overcome the fear of starting the business Just a few thoughts as I ve been working a lot of the Formalities part

    again So the challenge is to go anywys To take emotional risks reach out to people who may say no and to try things that might not work but if it did work could change everything Because that s where the big reward is Another problem is that edges are different for everyone This means there s no rulebook or step by step guide you just have to do it Feel your way through Figure out the hard part of whatever is you re working on and do that first The last problem is that the edges change over time Like your favorite Chicago Bears sweater you used to wear all the time but that got stretched out and now is way too big Or ideas that seemed creative three years ago like crowdfunding and Instagram but now are more common than ever Like those examples your edge changes over time and gets redefined so you have to keep pushing Edges are scary and sometimes might feel impossible to find But that doesn t mean you shouldn t look for them Because in the end the edges are where real change happens So have you started looking yet What are you waiting for Thursday December 19th 2013 Business School Leadership No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent

  • How dare the critics? - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    critic might say you are wrong you made a mistake It s the same concept society used to keep women in their place for decades The same one that is used to tell the underclass that they don t have a say The same one that makes you feel like you don t have the right to speak up at meetings Or tell your boss when they ve got something wrong So we hide instead of speaking up We add qualifiers to our answers and put extra words in our work to distract everyone from what we really want to say And over time it becomes second nature It s far easier to add another 50 words And another 50 words And a few more lines to distort our message Rather than just stand up and say the 5 words that we believe And in the end the critics have kept us from doing our best work The problem is that so much of success is about doing things that are out of your comfort zone and things that have never been done before We just have to find ignore the critics and move on Hard but worth getting better at Friday August 30th 2013 Leadership 1 Comment to How dare the critics Jasmine Chan August 31 2013 Excellence scholar Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about
