Not only did it make reading that chapter easier on my aging eyes but I will likely incorporate it as the voice over in some upcoming videos.
Hi Rob,

That's interesting!

For a while, I was doing some "academic editing" work on the side... I partly kept doing it because I kept learning things, and I'd get the occasionally interesting paper... I'm a "sucker" for interesting stuff...

Anyway, I found that sometimes using "text-to-speech" helped with the editing process. I could sometimes catch errors by "listening" to them! (It was especially useful if I got tired of reading...)

On Ch. 3 of "Thinking Like an Entrepreneur" - Peter Hupalo makes a good point, I think...

One point is you'll never be great at everything! You might be great at a couple things, good at a couple others, yet suck at other things. For example, maybe you are great at creating websites, but you really suck at selling your services.

The point is, you could then focus on what you're great at, and hire or partner with one or more people to do what you suck at. So, in this case, you could make websites, and partner with someone, or hire someone, to sell your services for you...

The more complex the business gets, the more this is true...!

A friend of mine started a website building and branding company. He's a great graphic designer, so he focuses on that side of things (I think he does most of the "selling" too). Another partner does all the "coding" stuff related to the websites. And a third partner focuses on the financial side of the business. And in their case... their separation of responsibilities works very well, and they're quite successful!

Best wishes,

Dien
