Six (6) Android Games You Should Play Now not Tomorrow

Got a new device? You need to get some new games. Here are some quick recommendations for great Android games. Some are familiar from other platforms. Some are free. Some are paid, and some have specific hardware requirements. All are listed here.
1.  Minecraft Pocket Edition
Why it is great: Minecraft is an entertaining block-building and survival game. You can play either in creative mode where you build and invent things in your own randomly generated world or you can play in survival mode where you use your wits and resources to survive against the creepers who come out at night.
Note – this does not connect with your main Minecraft account if you play the computer version of the game.
Play for yourself or keep it around to entertain kids. (Turn off in-app purchases if you do this.)
Minecraft is a paid app ($6.99) but you can find occasional sales, in-app purchases run from $0.50 to $1.99.   More »
2.  Lara Croft Go
Based on the popular Tomb Raider series and developed by Square Enix, Lara Craft Go is a relatively simple but very addictive puzzle game you can take with you. The puzzles are designed for short bursts of play, so pull it out in the doctor’s office waiting room or while riding the bus home.
Lara Croft Go sells for $4.99 but is occasionally on sale for $0.99. It allows in-app purchases. If you like this game, you can also check out Hitman Go, which is also from Square Enix.  More »
 
3.  Buttons and Scissors
This is a free puzzle game where you try to cut matching color buttons off of a square of denim. Mechanically this feels similar to Bejeweled, but not completely the same. The logic puzzles offer great challenges for players of all ages.
The other big advantage to this game is that it does not require any connectivity. You can play this game on devices that aren’t connected to Wi-Fi or in that signal dead spot.
Buttons and Scissors is a free download but allows in-app purchases.  More »
 Did you want to try out the new trend in adult coloring books, but you don’t want to carry around coloring pencil and a coloringb book? Try out this app instead. It’s appropriate for kids or adults, and while it’s not the same as coloring in an actual coloring book, it is still very satisfying.
Mandala Coloring Pages is free (with ads) but also allows in-app purchases.  More »
Yes. You can play an Android version of Portal. This is a real console game. As such, it requires a real console. This version will only work on the Nvidia Shield version of Android TV.  The Nvidia Shield starts at around $199 but allows you to stream movies and play Android games on your TV.
Portal starts at $1.99 but this is “introductory pricing.”  More »
If you have a phone with a fast processor and terrific screen display, you can take it for a ride with this virtual reality game. This is a first-person shooter where you aim at balloons. You’ll need Google Cardboard. This is an inexpensive accessory that you can either make or buy for around $15 and will turn your phone into a virtual reality device. Obviously not a game you can play while waiting in a doctor’s office (unless your doctor is awesome) but a fun novelty game to play by yourself or after having one of your friends try on the headset.
VR Cardboard Shooter 3D is a free download.  More »

Five 5 Costly Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make

537

Being an entrepreneur requires a lot of work, skill, sacrifice, commitment and wisdom. However, there is something extra that one needs to become a better entrepreneur and increase their chances of entrepreneurial success. This is a knowledge of the mistakes to never make as an entrepreneur. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 5 costly mistakes entrepreneurs make in their entrepreneurial ventures.

Doing Search Engine Optimization on Your Own

SEO might seem pretty straightforward as it’s basically about finding and using the right keywords for Google to rank it near top searches; this is to increase the chances of your business being seen by potential customers. In theory, SEO is indeed simple and straightforward, however the practical implementation of it is a lot more complex. This is because the rules of SEO are constantly changing and after eventually figuring out the whole process, you still need to be careful to find a balance between doing too little SEO and too much SEO. SEO requires time and a lot of attention to be successful, and you just might fall short in this area while simultaneously trying to run the core of your business. You’ll need to hire a very good SEO consultant to take the reigns of this part of your business.

Trying To Do It All By Yourself

You should understand that you can’t do it all by yourself and there are those who are more skilled in certain areas than you are. You need to leverage on the strengths of these people and combine with your strength to make your entrepreneurial venture a success. Trying to do it all by yourself can lead to avoidable mistakes that can be detrimental to your entrepreneurial success.

Being Impatient

Taking risks is far different from looking for trouble, and that’s what an impatient entrepreneur would be doing. Rome wasn’t built in a day and everything needs time to develop, so an entrepreneur should avoid trying to rush his/her growth process with rushed and risky operations and investments. Entrepreneurs need to have a thorough understanding of their business and their business growth to help them better learn to be patient with their business.

Being Too Confident

Confidence is different from arrogance and recklessness. Entrepreneurs need to understand that there is a fine line between the two and tread carefully.

Not Being Adaptable

Today’s business climate is ever-changing and it is important for an entrepreneur to learn to be adaptable if he/she wants his/her business to survive. As much as you should go with what is working now, you also need to explore new options so that you can be ready to make changes in the future. In addition, entrepreneurs should not downplay the role of social media in helping to create visibility for their products. Social media is a cheap and effective tool for marketing your business to many customers online.
