Contributed article in our entrepreneurial series. Enjoy! – Kimberly

Many entrepreneurs can be insular, greedy, and selfish. However, the best businesses are always those that are the most giving. 

Your company needs to fulfill a real purpose in society. Every idea you have needs to resonate among the masses, changing lives for the better. After all, ambition is a core trait of any successful entrepreneur, so there’s really no place for half measures here. 

How you choose to run your company plays a big part too. You will often be judged on your ability to go the extra mile for your workers and your community. Every resource and piece of knowledge that you have needs to be put to good use.

Becoming a Student of Leadership – Making Leadership a Practice, by Jeffrey Page

If EVER there was a book excerpt MADE for our blog, THIS IS IT! AND Jeff mentions CLUCKSTERS and CHICKENS!! What could be MORE scrappy??!! Enjoy scrappy gal pals! – Kimberly

About the Book

Becoming a Student of Leadership – Making Leadership a Practice is a book about leadership in the broadest sense of the word. It asserts that we all serve as leaders in some way, and we need to become students of leadership to learn how best to lead from our various positions within an organization. As students, we must practice with a drive to continually improve and with the humility to know that we’ll never be finished learning. The most effective leaders spend less time trying to prove what they know and more time creating opportunities for everyone to learn.

The book is written as a series of stories, meditations, and essays about various aspects of leadership including the influence of ego, the importance of humility, the power of radical candor, and the ability to address adversity with generosity and an assumption of positive intent. Many of the pieces present stories about Jeff’s work and life experiences — and often about his mistakes and shortcomings — that led him to revelations about how to become a better leader.

Book Excerpt

Jeff felt the following excerpt of “Becoming a Student of Leadership” might resonate with readers of the “Scrappy Women” blog – and not only because of the word “scrappy” is in the title. As you will see in the excerpt below, Jeff and his wife Lisa admire and applaud the scrappiness of daughter Nicole…

Get Scrappy

When my wife Lisa and I think of our daughter Nicole, there’s one word that usually comes to mind: “Scrappy.”

Describing Nicole as scrappy is an expression of our fondness and admiration for her bold and determined, go-getter attitude. We don’t think of the word’s more quarrelsome connotations. If anything, Nicole is conflict-averse.Continue reading

Contributed article in our business series. Enjoy! – Kimberly

An IP address can be compared to your regular address, but it is a virtual one. Each time you send a request to a web resource, it receives your IP. Do you know what information can be extracted from an IP? First of all, it is possible to extract your phone number and email. And from those one can extract name, country, birthdate, addresses that are in association etc.

There are different kinds of IPs: data center, mobile, residential, shared, rotated etc. They are called proxies. They act as an intermediate between you and your destination site and were created to mask your real IP. If you go with a residential IP as your proxy when surfing the Web in your residence, your real address will be hidden halfway to the destination site. The destination resource will see a completely new residential address.

Residential Proxies. Peculiarities

Residential accommodation reassigns requests that enter the Web from your device to a pool of residential addresses around the world. Thankfully to this it is possible to target not only up to the country, but even up to the city (if the service you have chosen is a quality service). The best services allow targeting even up to the mobile operator.Continue reading
