A Thought Over Coffee Posts

What Is This Whole Entrepreneurship Thing Really About, Anyway?

In 2005, I walked across the stage as the first ever graduate in Entrepreneurship at Belmont University. I was lucky enough to fall into a program that Dr. Jeff Cornwall had designed AND to be a part of it on the ground floor. He had built a program not about case studies and faux business plans but real life. Real business. MY business. Each student was working on their own plans. Everyday. Each class designed to teach us principles needed to best “fail on paper” as we sifted through all the information and research it takes to incubate our dreams.…

I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I go, ’Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.’ -Jim Carry For the past few weeks, I have been thinking a lot about all the folks that spend their days serving great coffee beverages.

So, When Is The Right Time?

My name is Jason Duncan. A guy from Oklahoma that has always run 100 miles an hour into the things I believe in. It was my senior year of college when I started writing the first version of A Thought Over Coffee. I remember sitting in an entrepreneurship class at Belmont University listening to my professor, Dr. Jeff Cornwall, talk about his blog, The Entrepreneurial Mind. What the hell was a blog? Never had I heard of those before. Twitter wasn’t a thing. Facebook wasn’t a thing. All I knew about what AOL Instant Messenger. Blog? Turns out, a blog…
