The 21st Century Leader Is An Enlightened Warrior

Heading up a successful business today is a lot different than it was 50 years ago.  The face of entrepreneurship is changing from the white middle-aged college educated male to a new class consisting of immigrants, women, baby boomers, and the younger digital generation. These groups are better prepared for success.

The boomers have a vast repertoire of skills and experiences while the youth possess a risk-taking attitude with very few financial commitments, so how do you marry the skills of both?

The widespread 17th Century network of crafts and small cottage industries that had dominated the production of goods for centuries gave way to large centralised factories as the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th Century took hold. The period from 1750 to 1850 saw changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transportation, and technology and this had a profound effect on the social, economic and cultural conditions of the times. The concept of mass production not only opened the door to new opportunities and unprecedented growth, but also reshaped the way people lived, worked, and played.
