Opportunity Round Up No. 22


As I noted in a previous email, ZApreneur needs to be relevant. The current model of providing opportunities has been successful for some entrepreneurs. ZApreneur was however setup with a broader mission – to create an alternative. That is a huge mission and one that is not yet fulfilled. I also have a ton of ideas, which matters little if there is no execution. So this is what I have done – added a daily 30 minute slot to just focusing on ZApreneur. I doubt I will ever have the week to concentrate on building the application, but 30 minutes a day is possible. Little tiny wins daily.
I am not sure where this will lead, but if I could get to a point where we are closer to creating an alternative that would make this year really special.
