Launching A New Enterprise (After Exiting The Business You Led To Success)

When starting a new venture and knowing you will have to invest heavily into a brand or company financially, emotionally and, perhaps most importantly, with all of your time, quite simply, it has to be right. For example, it took two years after exiting The Entertainer to focus on what I wanted to embark on next. Many entrepreneurs expect a lightbulb moment, and for some, this may be the case. However, it is important to note that this isn’t always the path and certainly not the only one. If you approach your startup not as a sprint, but as a marathon, you can put in place the ideas and mindsets that will help you succeed in the long run. By ignoring the rush to market and taking a longer consideration to your prospective venture, it can very often benefit you and your brand.

An analysis of Joe Biden’s tax proposals, October 2020 update | American Enterprise Institute

Key Points

  • Using the Tax-Calculator (3.0.0) microsimulation
    model, we estimate that Joe Biden’s propos­als would raise federal revenue by
    $2.8 trillion over the next decade (2021–30).
  • The majority of new federal revenue would come
    from businesses and corporations ($1.9 tril­lion). The remaining revenue would
    come from individual income and payroll tax increases ($616.8 billion) and an
    increase in estate and gift taxes ($276.4 billion).
  • In 2021, Biden’s proposals would increase taxes,
    on average, for the top 5 percent of households and reduce taxes on households
    in the bottom 95 percent. In 2030, Biden’s proposals would increase taxes, on
    average, for households at every income level, but tax increases would
    primarily fall on the top 1 percent of income earners.
  • Using the open-source OG-USA (0.6.2) model, we
    estimate that Biden’s proposals would reduce gross domestic product (GDP) by
    0.16 percent over the next decade, slightly increase GDP the second decade

Enterprise hits and misses – IBM spins off a legacy business, ERP vendors get a re-platform debate, and hybrid SaaS gets its due

Lead story – Don’t be a ERP re-platform sheep – or a pure SaaS sheep either.

MyPOV: Two diginomica stories challenged buyers not to accept the status quo.

Start with Kurt’s When – and why – hybrid SaaS might be a better option. Kurt critiques SaaS multi-tentant purists. Architectural options have become more nuanced – opening up SaaS possibilities in regulated industries, for example.

I believe that’s a win for customers, but it does require grasping what’s under the hybrid SaaS hood. Kurt:

A better SaaS alternative is a hybrid model in which parts of an application, such as the Web UI, mobile interface and administrative console are delivered from shared infrastructure while the backend databases and business logic run on dedicated infrastructure. For example, Generis CARA, a content management SaaS that targets highly regulated industries like life sciences and financial services provides two classes of service that
