Carnival of Bootstrapping Entrepreneurs #6

Wednesday, August 22, 2007 at 11:00pm by Site Administrator

[updated] Welcome to the sixth Carnival of Bootstrapping Entrepreneurs (CoBE #6). Critieria for inclusion: relevant to bootstrapping, entrepreneuring, startup/ small businesses.

To be fair to everyone, entries are selected approximately in order of submission. Please support this carnival by linking back to this post. Because of the volume of entries, I’m reducing the number of summaries and present 1-3 picks of the week.

Picks of the Week

This week’s picks:

  1. Planning an Business Trip by Mike Harmon.
  2. Quiz: What Kind of Entrepreneur Are You? by Skip Shuda [updated].
  3. A Motivation Secret of Top Performing Managers by Dr. Robert Karlsberg and Dr. Jane Adler.
  4. Evaluation is Critical for Success. How to Measure Your Progress by Millionaire Mommy.

Other Entries

These are the remaining entries for this edition.

  1. Are You A Good Facilitator? by Louise Manning.
  2. If You Really Want Something Done, Find a Busy Person To Do It by Adam.
  3. Want to Waste Some More Time Before You Start Your Business? by Stefan Töpfer.
  4. Going to the Top Too Fast by Wilson Ng.
  5. Business Productivity With New Media: 10 Questions by Noric Dilanchian.
  6. The Money Series – Why Didn’t I Think of That Billionaires by Edith Yeung.
  7. Watch For Upwarding Leaping Monkeys by Jack Yoest.
  8. From iPhone to YouTube – The Viral Marketing Method by Eric Hudin.
  9. Do You Really Want to Buy a Franchise? by Tom Stanley.
  10. Learn Good Customer Service by Jason Rakowski.
  11. Leveling the Playing Fields by Stacey Derbinshire.

That ends this second edition of the Carnival of Bootstrapping Entrepreneurs. Any articles submitted on or after Aug 13th that meet the criteria but not appearing here will likely appear in the next edition.

Please use the submission form for future editions. Limit one entry per week per person. If you find you are not getting into this blog carnival, please read 11 tips for being included. I’ll particularly point out a few reoccurring problems:

  1. Submitting the same article twice. Always send something fresh. It’s not that hard to keep a spreadsheet of your submissions to all carnivals.
  2. Submitting 2+ articles within 5 minutes of each other. Do not send more than one entry per week or ALL of them will be deleted. Don’t make me do your work for you – choose your recent best and send that.
  3. Don’t make paragraphs too long or backgrounds colored. Anything that makes it hard to read your article reduces the chances that it’ll be read and accepted.
  4. Way off topic or simply not targeted at bootstrapping entrepreneurs, or even entrepreneurs in general. If you’re talking only about wealth, career, blogging, etc., in your article, if you do not tie the topic in to business or entrepreneuring, then I might not accept it. If it’s selected for a Pick of the Week, then I’ll summarize it and do the tie in. But if it’s not picked, then I won’t put it in the rest of the carnival edition.
