Top 5 Things Entrepreneurs Must Know – Week of November 30, 2010 (San Francisco)

Hey you,

Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. :) I am finally back from Hong Kong and had a blast visiting family there. Now back to work! Guess what... The District would not work for our Thursday night meeetup... there are too many of us! Luckily I found another spot (joining force with the Renaissance Entrepreneur Center). Yay! See details below.

Here comes the weekly update on some of the hottest entrepreneurial thoughts, news and events in the San Francisco/Silicon Valley area:

1. Drinks and Social - December 2 (Thursday) @ The Old MacArthur Park Restaurant (Not District!)
Come and hang out with some amazing entrepreneurs, investors, media rockstars, designers, developers or simply just amazing people!

RSVP here.

Note: This meetup is happening in conjunction with the Holiday Gift Bazaar hosted by the Renaissance Entrepreneur Center. Yes - there will be a HUGE crowd. :)

2. Entrepreneurship - Where do ideas come from? by Seth Godin
An idea must come from somewhere, because if it merely stays where it is and doesn't join us here, it's hidden. And hidden ideas don't ship, have no influence, no intersection with the market. They die, alone. Check it out.

3. Branding ? How to build a real and remarkable brand on Social Media by Ben Huh
Learn social media branding from Ben Huh, founder of LOlcats and Cheezburger Network. Watch this.

4. Quality - Better
I want to become an evangelist for hard work, and I want to get to a place where it shows in everything that I do, make, and share. Read more.

5. Rumor ? Google brought Groupon?
Google Groupon acquisition for real? Check it out.
