    By: Ziad K Abdelnour | 02 Jan 2015

    If 2014 proved anything, it's that guessing at the state of the world a year down the line is a vain or even slightly embarrassing endeavor.

  • How Killer Serial Entrepreneurs Operate

    By: Ziad K Abdelnour | 01 Dec 2014

    I talk to and meet close to 500 entrepreneurs a year - from the true maverick game changers to the guys as arrogant and dumb as can be - I believe what differentiates a killer serial entrepreneur from the rest of the crowd is frankly how they operate - no matter what product they are offering. ...
