On the Spotlight: Why Hate the Billionaire? (The Delanys Book I), by Johanna Bordeaux

I’m Cassidy Delany. Bright new shiny MD. So how do I celebrate? I let myself go crazy with the hottest man I’ve ever seen. Piercing blue-gray eyes with a ripped chest and six-pack abs I could lick for a lifetime. The two of us together equals a nuclear explosion. Too bad Daniel is an arrogant billionaire prick who thinks he can just take what he…

What Kind Of Mindset Should An Entrepreneur Have??

I love Quora. It's a really cool knowledge-sharing site. You register and build up your profile with topics of interest. Then you can apply your own experience and answer users' questions about said topics. As you build up your credibility on the site, people then come to you to answer their questions. 

I've gotten some cool questions but just answered this one today and thought I'd share. =)

Why Do Startups Fail?

A multitude of potential pitfalls can negatively impact entrepreneurs as they eagerly try to build their fledgling companies…and basically crush their spirit if allowed. In my experiences, there are four reasons that stand out the most:

  • Lack of Research – Research is imperative. It provides insight about what your competitors are doing so can stay several steps ahead and create innovative ways to develop and market your offering. It also provides you with…

Spreading The Seed

I love spinning tales of romance in the Silicon Valley setting. I'm told I seriously over-glamorize the lifestyles of my heroes and heroines but whatever. I write FICTION so isn't that kind of a requirement? I mean, I have to keep things interesting. right? <wink, wink="">

As an entrepreneur, I am fascinated with goings-on in the Valley. There's such an aura over Sand Hill Road; it's just bubbling over with innovation, creativity and energy. Being part of that atmosphere,…

Want A Chance To Win A $50 Amazon Gift Card???

Marketing. It's a word that simultaneously excites me and makes me cringe. Platforms are constantly changing, making it difficult to reach a target market (ahem, Facebook), prospective customers are tuning out more and more because there is a constant glut of information being thrown at them, key performance metrics that trended positive six months ago may not mean much now because marketing channels are flooded with content and becoming largely ineffective.

So the question is...with…

Read deadly dreams but don’t let out a scream

The genre can be used for discussing about a particular movie, novel or even a speech that can be related to a particular subject. Some of the genres quite popular are romance, crime and psychology apart from various other types.

Obsessing About Mr. Wonderful

I'm giggling because I'm mildly obsessed with Mr. Wonderful these days. Anyone who's read my blog recently can attest to that. 

Could it be because he kinda reminds me of Paul Emerson, ruthless and calculating CEO of Blue Coat Capital? 

Check out my novel Unlikely Venture if you're…

Perfect Date?!

A perfect date...oh my word.

Sounds like a lot of pressure, honestly.

I've come to realize that perfection is an impossible standard for this mere mortal. I actually attempted a romantic getaway with Wolf, the hubby last month.

It didn't go well. If you want all the gory (albeit funny) details, including stockings becoming slouch socks, you can read it here.

Lego Alert! Fifty Shades of...Brick?

You've all seen the movie trailer but have you caught...the Lego version????

I eat, sleep, breathe and step all over Legos on a DAILY!! I need to wear slippers to protect my feet from those tiny plastic pieces which have drawn blood more than a couple of times.

Then I came upon this trailer and thought it'd be apropos to share with you all, you know, since I'm a romance author as well as a mom to a bunch of little Lego master builders. =)

Happy Friday!!…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
