Shervin Pishevar says entrepreneurs are increasingly borderless

Published Post author

As the debate rages on throughout the U.S. about the role of immigration in the nation’s economy and demographics, one of Silicon Valley’s most accomplished venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, Shervin Pishevar, says that the questions surrounding immigration are largely becoming irrelevant for tech startups. Entrepreneurs, he says, are increasingly living in a borderless world. The problem that Shervin Pishevar identifies is that much of the U.S. tech sector is stuck in the mindset of 20 years ago where borders and trade barriers have primacy in the calculation of those seeking to found their own tech companies.

But Shervin Pishevar believes that Silicon Valley and the U.S. tech sector as a whole have some unwelcome chickens coming home to roost. In a recent tweet storm, Shervin Pishevar explained that tech entrepreneurs are increasingly freed from the artificial constraints imposed by borders, trade restrictions and the imperative to be in action centers like the San Francisco Bay Area. Shervin Pishevar says that simple conferencing technologies like Skype are fundamentally transforming the way that tech businesses operate, making it possible for remote locations to cooperate in ways that were never before possible.

He says that advancements in coding protocols and the ways in which websites are developed have also added to the ability of new startups to have talent located all around the globe. Pishevar himself has built companies using developers and web designers that have been simultaneously located in dozens of cities across the world. This ability, he says, is a wonderful boon to the capacity of entrepreneurs across the planet to compete on a level playing field. However, Pishevar warns that it could spell doom for the San Francisco Bay Area.

Pishevar says that migration outflows from the San Francisco area have been so heavy that U-Haul trucks going to Austin, Texas, now cost 10 times what they do on the return trip. Places like Palo Alto have seen living costs soar to such extremes that now even upper-class professionals are fleeing the area. If Silicon Valley doesn’t address these problems, says Pishevar, it may soon find itself not only irrelevant but completely insolvent.

Business Owner Bob Reina Urges People To Not Give Up On Finding Success

Published Post author

Younger people usually have big dreams. They want to explore Mars one day or become the President of the United States one day, for example. The goal is awesome to be really wealthy and live in a mansion with two pools and secret passages all over.

However, as people get older they compromise their dreams. They have lowered expectations as the got school and work a job where they are often told to keep their heads down and just do their jobs. People begin to believe they’re average so why even try to reach their old dreams anymore since they are wildly unlikely to happen, most people tell themselves.

Entrepreneur Bob Reina wonders why so many people let things like fear and apathy take over their lives. People will settle for a paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle and instead just imagining that in some other world they are as rich and successful as they once wanted to be. He says that people need to stop believing they’ve missed their shot to be successful as they want to be in life when in truth they haven’t even gotten onto the court.

Bob Reina has been pushing people to make more of their lives and attain their dreams over the past twenty years. He owns Talk Fusion which is an online video solutions firm. He is a graduate of the University of South Florida and his first professional job was as a police officer. However, he decided he wanted a lot more out of life than that so he decided to enter the direct marketing industry. After working for a number of other companies, many of which he would find great success with but then they would fall apart, he decided he had to start his own business.

Bob Reina says he puts a lot of effort and time into being a successful businessman. His weekdays start out at 5:30 a.m. when he goes through his emails and then sets the day’s agenda. He gets to his office by 8:30 and he spends his days collaborating with others, in meetings, and inspiring his team to achieve their best for the day.

Bob Reina: Remember The Good Old Days

Published Post author

Life is truly what you make of it. If you want your life to be something that is less than, that is what your life is going to be when you get right down to it. However, if you push yourself to new extremes and new heights, you will see life can be better than ever. There is a word that is very important when it comes to dreams and that word is “desire.” How much does someone desire to have their dreams come true? You can usually tell the difference between happy people and unhappy people. Happy people have a jump in their step while unhappy people usually tend to move a little slower and go through the motions. They are not excited or thrilled about anything that is happening. Learn more: https://medium.com/@bobreinatalkfusion/have-you-given-up-on-your-dreams-b2c37849845a

 

Happy people, on the other hand, they are enjoying every single second of life. They don’t let it go to waste. They get all they can out of it and more. They know life is precious and so are their dreams. When they were little, they had dreams. In many ways, they need to get back to their childhood-like state and really pursue those same dreams they had as a child. After all, that is when people were usually the happiest and when they were getting the most out of their lives.

 

Bob Reina knows all about it, and one thing he stresses is “willpower.” There are always choices in life and people can either choose to settle down, take it easy, and relax or they can choose to do a little bit more with their lives. The choice is up to them, however. Are they going to go on the couch and watch a movie? Or are they going to keep pushing themselves even further? They need to decide, and no one can decide for them. They are the ones that are in charge of that decision. They need to make the right one.

 

They need to have the willpower to use Talk Fusion and all of its applications to further their business. When they do that, they start to realize those childhood dreams are still waiting for them and they are not far out of reach. With a little willpower and a little desire, they can have them. It’s a wonderful feeling when that light bulb goes off for them and they start to chase their dreams with great enthusiasm.
