7 Golden rules of Tweeting

    7 Golden rules of Tweeting


  1. Tweeting usually fails, except by accident.
    1.1. If Tweeting can fail, it will.
    1.2. If Tweeting cannot fail, it still most usually fails.
    1.3. If Tweeting seems to succeed in the intended way, there's a misunderstanding.
    1.4. If you are confident with your Tweet, communication certainly fails.
  2. If a Tweet can be interpreted in several ways, it will be interpreted in a manner that maximizes the damage.
  3. There is always someone who knows better than you what you meant with your Tweet.
  4. The more we Tweet, the worse Tweeting succeeds.
    4.1 The more we Tweet, the faster misunderstandings propagate
  5. In live Tweeting, the important thing is not how things are but how they seem to be.
  6. The importance of a Tweet is inversely proportional to the square of the distance.
  7. The more important the Tweet is, the more probably you forget an essential thing that you remembered a moment ago.
Have a successful life!

Deep dive into my Unstoppable Entrepreneurship book

I recently took a deep dive into my book Unstoppable Entrepreneurship on The Entrepreneurs Library.

Listen to my interview with Wade Danielson onThe Entrepreneurs Library

That was my first interview ever on podcast overseas. Skype seemed to work well during interview. I did not prepare very well, but first interview is always a little bit exciting. Next time I can be better. These radio/podcast interviews are something that you can learn only live on radio or podcast.

You can be unstoppable, if you want to.
Have a successful life!

What is Kiwi App on Facebook and why am I getting a lot of invites for it ?

Kiwi App on Facebook is spreading like a virus. Be careful when installing. Installing the Kiwi app sends automatic invites to all your Facebook friends as they were selected by default. Typically people want to invite people to good apps if they like app but not like this :( Is Kiwi App dangerous? Yes. Kiwi invites your all friend by default.

You're never a loser until you quit trying

Even when you’re unstoppable, you can still burn out.
When you feel you’re being crushed under the pressure of debts and taxes, and you still come out from under it all alive and kicking, you’ll know that you are unstoppable. You’ll understand what being unstoppable truly means to you.
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 17 years old. At first  everything was pleasant, fun and exciting. Later in 2002, I was 23 years old and had just finished my obligatory army service  in Finland. The IT bubble had just burst.

 I couldn’t sleep because I was worrying about how I could pay salaries to my employees. I was mentally burned out. I crashed. In fact, I almost went crazy. I had to make a choice between two bad choices: should I file my company for ba…
