Entrepreneurship, unhappiness and good demand

If you've followed me very long, you know I'm a huge fan of entrepreneurship and small business.

Entrepreneurship is the fastest way to build serious wealth, but​ it's also how you can change the world and improve people's lives.

If you're not making the world a better place, what's the point?

With the political season heating up, we're all talking about where the U.S. should be heading. I think small, mindful entrepreneurs​ are our greatest resource, and the future of our economic system. 

And I believe the 'corporate industrial complex' is the greatest threat to our democracy and success in the world.​

I found the following two video's from The School of Life that speak to this.

The first is about entrepreneurship. And how successful business ventures are really about studying unhappiness in the world. Then fixing the unhappiness as a business solution:

The second is about economic demand. But not just demand for anything. Demand for things that matter and have a positive impact on our society and world:

Tell me what you think of the videos in the comments below.

Do you think there is such a thing as 'good demand' and 'bad demand'?

How do you feel about the economic direction the U.S. is headed? Where should it be going?

Thanks for watching and reading!

    The first video is brilliant! The second … well, I doubt most Americans would comprehend. Indeed, it seems education has been out of favor for a long time with us. Still, marketing in terms of creating better quality demand is an interesting idea!

      I thought they were very well done too! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how the powers that be seem to focus on growth, productivity and “output” without regard to the KIND of output.

      Just seems so important, but rarely discussed…
