While male entrepreneurs may have some advantages other their female counterparts, it doesn’t mean that success is assured. To start a successful business, you have to come up with a great idea; that’s Entrepreneurship 101, right? As you might guess, it’s often easier said than done. What do you do if you can’t come up with something original? What if someone else already had the great idea you wish YOU had? One way is to make that great idea better.
Being an entrepreneur means you have to adapt. In Dan Hermann’s case it meant taking an existing idea out for a new spin. Hermann and his friend Sean McGrail helped turn paint night, or Paint Nite, into a national phenomenon. They weren’t the first to come up with organized painting and drinking parties. Far from it. But instead of using the franchise models that others used, they instead licensed artists. For a cut of the ticket price, artists would book the venues, create the pictures and oversee the events. By 2015 Paint Nite was operating in 115 cities around the world.

But these days, with most of us still being sheltered-in-place, it’s more important than ever to make sure to get some green therapy. There are several health benefits that come along with spending time outside, including:
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Of course, anyone who says that probably hasn’t spent too much time around old dogs. You’d be surprised what new tricks their canine brains are capable of. The same might have been said of Anna Mary Robertson Moses, later known by her famous nickname of Grandma Moses. She had spent her life working as a housekeeper and on farms. While she always had an appreciation for art, it wasn’t until the age of 78 that she began painting in earnest. Since then her work has been shown and sold in the U.S. and elsewhere. In fact, in 2006, one of her paintings sold for over a million dollars. You’re never too old to try something new.

The Martinez brothers founded Are You Kidding Socks and use colorful and fun sock designs to generate money and raise awareness for local and national charities including Stand Up To Cancer, JDRF, Autism Speaks and others.
