The Best Blog You're Not Reading

There are, of course, millions of blogs on the intertubes these days, so it always gives me great pleasure when I discover one of real value. My latest discovery is the Orgpreneur blog, written by David Gammel of High Context Consulting. Click here to read it.

As David writes, the site is for “people who achieve goals with entrepreneurship from within an organization.”

I find the site appealing because back when I worked inside organizations as a staffer, I was often referred to as being “entrepreneurial.” Funny thing was, I had no idea what that meant. As far as I could tell, it meant “creative.”

But being entrepreneurial is much more than being creative. One dictionary definition is “someone who organizes a business venture and assumes the risk for it.” I think this is a great definition.

Many organizations have entrepreneurs within their ranks. David’s blog provides great value on how to exploit these entrepreneurs (in a good way!) and as a result, how to make your organization more effective and valuable to your members and customers.
