While studying Markets & Management at Duke University (more info on that later), I learned a bit about the Creative Populist movement and the concepts behind being creatively entrepreneurial. The big ideas are:
Complexity – looking at a problem from multiple angles and devising a creative solution to get around that problem.
Creating Advantage – does anyone want to be taken advantage of? No. Creating advantage implies a mutual benefit and adding value for all.
Being a deviant – in this case, it’s a good thing! Go against the grain, challenge the status quo. This is the essence of entrepreneurship.
The Market will never be more generous with you than you are with the market.
Be Generous, Be Enthusiastic, Be Humble, Be Playful. Intentionally acting on these characteristics broadens perspective and creates new opportunities.
