Come join the Second Shift Community and other Chicago entrepreneurs as we put together a list of tips and tools for entrepreneurial success. It’ll be a fun and productive event to share what you know and learn what you don’t. Each person will leave with his or her own Top Ten to take away and use.
Danny Schuman is a Second Shift Community member who has spent the past several months interviewing entrepreneurs who he calls UDOTs: Us Doing Our Thing. It’s the massive and constantly growing group of people who are out on their own, doing what they love, what they’re good at and passionate about it, but aren’t so in love with, good at, or passionate about the other side of being a UDOT: the legal, administrative, business development, etc part of the business. The stuff that gets in the way of doing what they love.
Those UDOT interviews have helped inform Danny’s to-be-published book on UDOTs, called The Worst Business Model in the World. They’ve also helped him start amassing a list of do’s and don’ts for achieving success as a UDOT.
We’ll use his learnings as a starting point, and collaborate on a list of tips—things you should always do, and things you should never do—to help entrepreneurs do what you do better.
Come share, get inspired, and further your journey as a UDOT!
