Hoe Johndgartner hun webdesign begonnen


Hypomanic Edge Venture Capital Consulting


I'm an author and a psychologist who has written a popular book about hypomania (a mild form of mania) and its link to success, especially among entrepreneurs. I have two excellent existing websites, one for my book: hypomanicedge.com, and one for my practice: johngartner.com. Now I am launching a new website for my new venture: consulting to venture capitalists, helping them to determine which entrepreneurs are worth investing in, based on the degree to which their hypomania is properly channelled, thus making them workable. I will also be working as a coach with CEOs they have already invested in to teach them how to modulate and channel their hypomania.

Vertel ons iets meer over jezelf en de mensen die je bereikt

Venture Capitalists, Angel investors


Please pay close attention to my existing two websites. You may borrow anything you want from them. we will link to both of them and also a direct link to to the press section that has the extensive press coverage the book got.
This September I was featured in the Sunday New York Times business section in an article entitled "Just manic enough" Please pull up that link. I want to build this page around the photo from that article. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/19/b…management (I'm on pg. 2), and would like to incorporate the New York Times Sunday business headline type, and possibly a shot of the cover story itself

The first line of the headline should read Hypomanic Edge: I want to continue the look and feel of my first website which was designed around the book jacket. So for example I want to reproduce the font from The book jacket--where the font for Hypomanic and Edge were different, and the color scheme of black type on a bright red and yellow background.

on the second line it should read: Venture Capital Consulting --without the bright colors.

Below is the text.
In 1985, Steve Jobs was fired from Apple computer. Fired, by the very company he had founded, one that has become an iconic success story of the computer age. How was that possible? The reason can be boiled down to one word. At Apple, Jobs’ nickname was: “the asshole.” He was arrogant, belittling, stood on tables and screamed. When there was controversy over a new potential product, the LISA, Jobs took over the development team and hoisted a pirate flag over his team’s building, in essence declaring war on his own company. That Jobs ultimately came back, and steered Apple to a new heights—introducing the ipod, iphone, and ipad--only highlights what a senseless loss of value it was for Apple to lose Jobs
Surprisingly, Jobs’ story is not unusual. Once angel or venture investors get involved in the growth of a new company, firing the founding CEO is often the result, and for the same reasons. The “asshole factor,” if I may be so crude, has an underlying cause. Like most visionary founding CEOs, Jobs has a hypomanic temperament. Hypomania endows entrepreneurs with the drive, energy, creativity, charisma, and confidence that allow them to accomplish their feats of magic. Yet, the same temperament that underlies their success also manifests in traits that can lead to their downfall, making them disruptive influences in their own organizations: irritability, impatience, impulsivity, arrogance, overconfidence and poor judgment.
The promise and the peril of the hypomanic entrepreneur was introduced to the public for the first time in my 2005 book, The Hypomanic Edge: The Link Between (a Little) Craziness and a (a Lot of) Success in America. The Sunday New York Times Magazine named it one of the most “original, innovative and important ideas” of 2005 in their annual “Year in Ideas” issue, and it was hailed in virtually every major financial publication including, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Inc., Entrepreneur, and Worth to name a few. More recently, five years after its publication, The Hypomanic Edge (and its author) was featured on the front page of the Sunday New York Times Business section in an article entitled “Just Manic Enough: Searching for the perfect entrepreneur.” It was the most frequently emailed article from that week’s Sunday New York Times, showing that these ideas are as fresh and relevant to business today as they were when the book came out, and within the business community, there is no subgroup to whom these issues are more salient than venture capitalists
“Venture capitalists,” wrote the Times, “spend a lot of time plumbing the psyches of the people in whom they might invest. It’s not so much about separating the loonies from the slightly manic. It’s more about determining which hypomanics are too arrogant and obnoxious.” Millions, even billions of dollars can ride on getting this often subtle call right. One of the services I offer is aid to the VC in making these elusive judgment calls. If you’re going to be plumbing entrepreneurs’ psyches, why not employ the psychologist who discovered the link between hypomania and entrepreneurs in the first place? In my research for the book, discussions with venture capitalists, many of whom I have met in talks I have given to their organizations, and through my own years of clinical work with hypomanic entrepreneurs, I have evolved a set of principles that help separate the those on the cutting edge from those over the edge.
In addition to helping VCs and angel investors make decisions about who to bet on, I work on a one on one basis with entrepreneurs that have already invested in, to help these CEOs modulate and channel their hypomania in ways that will make it the most productive, maximizing the upside and minimizing the down side. Teaching them to slow down and become more mindful of, and thus to gain more conscious control over, the traits that can alienate people, disrupt group dynamics and lead to poor decisions, in an effort to avoid what I call “value destruction:” A Steve Jobs is a terrible thing to waste.
My fee is $5,000 a day, plus expenses. In some cases a small equity stake can be negotiated in lieu of payment. For further information feel free to contact me at 410-337-8207, or email me at johndgartner@comcast.net
