Did any of you read Stephanie Rosenblum`s article by that title in the NYT on Jan 18 about the categories of kinds of people you`re surrounded by at work? It was a great read.Options include:"Indecisive""Know-It-All""Agreeable""Complainer""Silents""Sherman Tanks""Aggressivists""Negativists""Bull Dozers"Any of these labels make sense when you look around at work?

Since I work from home my "Co-workers" are my kids...has she met them

I have one foot in the entrepreneurial world, and one foot in the cubicle. I have been told by my business advisor that I have chosen the toughest road to travel.
I have one foot in the entrepreneurial world, and one foot in the cubicle. I have been told by my business advisor that I have chosen the toughest road to travel. yes, grasshopper(-!), it is a tough road. but i would choose this road if i were not sure of the prospects of my side business and if i needed that sure-thing paycheck no matter what. until the side business shows that it`s a winner, while tough, you sound like you`re on the right road.
Setting goals and networking like mad have been two things that have really pushed me toward the door and into my home office!
I know my work team is unusual and that is why I`m choosing to stay in Corp. America for a few more years. I`ve never worked in a team so great, so even thought the cost of living in California is killing me, I`m going to stick with it. Maybe in a few years, I`ll think of an idea I can sell.
I`m not sure that I could be an good entrepreneur because I`m not a good buyer. I don`t mean that I`m not good at buying, actually, I`m just really good at Not Buying. I probably should be the gate-keeper on Elevator Pitches because, although I won`t shoot you down, the likelihood that you can get me to buy is probably pretty low.
