Since moving back to Boston in October I dedicated myself to getting to know as many people as I could and to insert myself into as many situations as possible that could potentially vault my career and personal life in the direction I wanted to go.
I have always been fascinated with the world of entrepreneurialism and have attempted to start as many as 20 different companies on my own. For one reason or another most of my ideas ultimately failed.
I recently realized didn’t have the knowledge, skill, or connections I needed to have the greatest percentage of success. In addition, I wasn’t capable of single focus, something so important in executing and idea and building a business.
Boston has reinvigorated my interest in entrepreneurialism in me getting involved in Northeastern’s venture accelerator as well as being a mentor at Mass Challenge, the world’s largest venture accelerator.
In working with young startup and young entrepreneurs, I found that I had great passion for teaching them how to go to market, how to establish personas, how to best acquire new customers, and so on.
In addition, many of these entrepreneurs came to me asking about my blog and the “soft skills” needed to be a great entrepreneur such as time management, communication, motivation and productivity, and happiness.
I found that my knowledge of both hard skills in sales and marketing, and “life skills” were a great combination and a necessity for anyone dedicated to building their dream business.
That being said I have decided to add a new dynamic to my blog which is to focus on entrepreneurs and those looking to cut ties with the status quo in search of their true passion.
My passion for sales and marketing combined with my knowledge of life skills creates a great combination to take new entrepreneurs to a whole new level and to prepare them for the tough strenuous road ahead, and making sure they remember to smile along the way.
I am working on rebranding myself as Cort Davies, Sales, Marketing, and Happiness Guru for entrepreneurs. Here starts part two of the journey and I am excited to get going.
