Entrepreneurship is dynamic with constant challenges. That also makes it so much fun. However, there may be times when you have doubts about which choice (s) you can make the best for your company and which steps you should take. For example, about which growth steps you can take. Or maybe you want to gain more insight into the current financial situation of your company.

Anyway, your business once started with an idea. You gradually developed this into a plan for your company. In the past, entrepreneurial ideas remained with ideas. This was because there was no writing yet. People just started to invent things that they thought made life easier, without thinking about the feasibility and viability of the idea. Nor did they know if they were the only one with that invention. For example, the wheel has been invented several times.

Because there was no writing yet, it is not known who was the first inventor of the wheel and where it was first used. Since nothing has been documented about this, it is not surprising that there is a difference of opinion about this.

In any case, more than 4000 years ago a wheel was found in the country between the Euphrates and the Tigris. There are also 'wheels' found in North-West Europe from that time. It is even thought that a Drent invented the wheel because wheels were found in that area from 2500 BC.

Nowadays we not only know which new products or services are being invented, but we can also more easily estimate what the sales forecast will be. That we can make this clear is partly thanks to Luca Pacioli.

He was an Italian mathematician and travelling Franciscan brother who from 1494 wrote down and published mathematical insights. Including the Venetian bookkeeping method that is nowadays known as 'double bookkeeping'. For this, he worked with Leonardo Da Vinci, who was responsible for the drawings of the mathematical models.

Another invention that we still use today is the zipper. Whitcomb Judson developed the precursor to this in 1891, the 'clasp closure'. He then registered 30 patents for this.
