First Subscriber

I was very happy to read that Problogger - Darren Rowse will be launching his first book ProBlogger Book — Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income

Darren is inspiration for bloggers like us who like to target at least five figure income. Then move forward to be in the elite club of Six Figure Income or target to be Guiness Book of Records for Seven Figure Income.

I am sure Darren must have acknowledged people who have helped him to achieve the success. You may notice that there are 45000 subscribers to the blog Problogger. I am curious to know who is the first one ?

Who remembers

To be recognised as an active blogger, you should also be an active subscriber and genuine commentor? If you spot a potential blog for the contents or an idea, then you should be first one to subscribe it. Who knows, you will be become the first one in a successful blogger list and will find you name in Hall of Fame in the one of the books.

Conversely, if your blog is a money spinner, you should publish your first subscriber, first one to favourite you on Technorati and so on .... in your book.

Strategy Development

Patterns of Strategy Development

Henry Mintzberg
Henry Mintzberg argues that strategy emerges over time as intentions collide with and accommodate a changing reality, rather being due to a deliberate planning process. This emergent strategy not envisaged in the planned strategy of the organisation. For e.g. a supplier pursuing modern ideas on supplier/customer relationships might encourage a partnership approach to sourcing. It is easy to imagine that buyers in the customer organisation might see benefits in this, and could pursue the idea to the point where sourcing strategy took on an aspect not at all contemplated when planned strategic developments were laid down.

Example

Potbelly Sandwich Works began in 1977 as a small antique store run by a nice young couple. Despite the fast-paced, never-a-dull-moment world of antique dealing, the couple decided to bolster their business by making sandwiches for their customers. What began as a lark, turned out to be a stroke of genius. Soon, people who couldn't care less about vintage glass doorknobs were stopping by to enjoy special sandwiches and homemade desserts in this unusual atmosphere. Potbelly Stove

As the years passed, the lines grew. Booths were added, along with ovens for toasting sandwiches to perfection, vista-coolers, napkin dispensers, hand-dipped ice cream - even live music. The little antique shop had become the full-fledged, totally unique sandwich joint that you enjoy in America today.

'Mintzberg argues there is more to business success (and life) than MBAs. 'To be superbly successful you have to be a visionary - someone with a very novel vision of the world and a real sense of where they are going. If you have that you can get away with murder. Alternatively, success can come if you are a true empowerer of people, are empathetic and sensitive. Often, visionaries create companies and success is continued by empowerers.'
