The Best Business Mentor You’ll Ever Have? It’s Your Dad

Some of your fathers wore suits and worked for the Man or were the Man themselves. Others were determined to do their own thing, rising to new heights or struggling like Willy Loman. But no matter what your dad happened to do for a living, chances are you’ll have no greater mentor in business than him.

As Father’s Day approaches, I find myself thinking about my own dad, a brilliant and iconoclastic architect who died much too young of cancer. Even though he was easily able to go into the family business—a hugely successful chain of DIY paint stores—my dad had other, bigger dreams. He wanted to build buildings. And to realize his dreams, he coined and lived by a set of principles I still follow to this day.

Company looks to open medical marijuana dispensary in Evans Mills

WATERTOWN — A Brooklyn-based company is hoping to set up a medical marijuana dispensary in Evans Mills.

Sheva Health and Wellness is one of 43 companies vying for a license to grow and dispense medical marijuana in New York.

The dispensary would be located at 26121 Route 11, Evans Mills, according to spokesman Glen Casey.

Having Kids Can Change Your Life — And Your Business Plan

How does a serial entrepreneur confront the challenge of parenthood?

By launching a startup, of course.

Ivan Lopez comes from a family of entrepreneurs. His paternal grandfather was involved in businesses as diverse as coffee beans, mining, and aerospace while his maternal grandfather was a man of many hats in his small Mississippi hometown.

So it’s not surprising that, in addition to working at Disney, Red Bull, and Sony in business development, marketing and management, Lopez is on his seventh stand alone startup with UK-based Wauwaa, a one-stop website for parents that sells quality baby products along with child rearing advice from parents and medical experts alike.

The Best Training For Aspiring Entrepreneurs

In 2013, Silicon Valley venture capitalist Paul Graham let slip a secret. “I can be tricked by anyone who looks like Mark Zuckerberg,” he told New York Times Magazine. “There was a guy once who we funded who was terrible. I said, ‘How could he be bad? He looks like Zuckerberg!’”

It turns out even an experienced investor like Graham can be influenced by the notion that entrepreneurial success is genetically predetermined—inherit the right combination of money-making DNA, and you’ll wind up the founder of the next billion-dollar-valued startup.
