There’s nothing better than a story about bullies being given the finger.
A 16 year-old who was terrified of going to her prom because of fear of bullies, had a surprise when 127 bikers turned up to support her.
In the UK there’s a group called Bikers Against Bullies and, without her knowing, they arranged to escort her to her prom.
As her car left to take her to the prom, she got a surprise as 127 bikers turned on to the road and surrounded the car in a private escort to the event.
Not only did it help to give her som self-esteem back, but it also stopped the bullies from doing anything during the prom.
Since then she’s gone on to help the group with their social media accounts and support their work to help other people.
What an absolutely brilliant story, I love it.
French Gangster Airlifted From Prison
This story has nothing to do with business or entrepreneurialism, but it’s a bloody good story!
A notorious French criminal is on the run after pulling off a brazen escape in a helicopter from a prison near Paris.
According to the Associated Press, Redoine Faid, who is serving 25 years for failed robbery and murder of a police officer, previously escaped another prison in 2013 using explosives hidden in packs of tissues before being rearrested a month later.
Faid pulled off his latest escape at around 11:20 a.m. local time on Sunday.
My 10 Biggest Mistakes in 10 Years as an Entrepreneur
I guess I’m now a 4%-er.
According to Inc. Magazine just 4% of new companies make it to 10 years.
And guess what?
We just made it here at Convince & Convert.
Our 10 year anniversary is today!
This is the longest I’ve ever done ANYTHING continuously (other than being a husband and a father), and I’m so proud of my team and the work they’ve done – and continue to do.
We’re so fired up; we even created a temporary new logo to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Convince & Convert.
I was an entrepreneur before I started this firm. In fact, Convince & Convert is my fifth startup endeavor, and I’m an investor in dozens of others. But this is certainly my most well-known and longest-running venture, so on this anniversary date, I decided to take some stock and think about the mistakes I’ve made along the way. I hope these confessions will help you in your own entrepreneurial journey.
