ABCs of entrepreneurship

Innovation and Entrepreneurship by Peter F. Drucker analyzes the challenges and opportunities of America's entrepreneurial economy. The book delves into the skills it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. He explains innovation and entrepreneurship as behaviors-not innate characteristics-anyone can learn if ready and willing. The book covers the seven sources of innovative opportunity, the development of an entrepreneurial culture within an organization and four major entrepreneurial strategies. Full of anecdotes, the book gives readers a glimpse of successful and not-so-successful attempts at entrepreneurial endeavors.

Hate shoveling? Love woveling!

The Wovel is a wheeled snow shovel intended for increasing productivity, reducing risk of injury and reducing harm to the environment. Its unique design allows the user to multiply mechanical force and throw snow into piles more than four feet tall. Made of heavy gauge steel and injection-molded polypropylene plastic, the instrument weighs in at 26 pounds. The wheel on the Wovel has a diameter of 36 inches-possibly enhancing leverage and the mechanical advantage. The Wovel reduces the risk of lower back injuries by 85 percent, according to an independent study by the University of Massachusetts. It is fully adjustable for user height or any snow conditions, and it breaks down easily for storage. It sells for $119.95.
