The Special Report: How national mobilization of entrepreneurialism created superpower nations and the brief history of the superpower economies. Relax and listen

Fifty years ago, in 1974, India had a 99 billion dollar economy, and China had a 148 billion dollar economy. Twenty years ago, in 2004, India had a 750 billion dollar economy, and China had a 2 trillion dollar economy. Today, according to the World Bank, India has a 3.5 trillion dollar economy, and China has an 18 Trillion dollar Economy.

Both grew from the entrepreneurial talents of the citizenry. 'National mobilization of Entrepreneurship' created oceans of SMEs, uplifted the nation's economies, up-skilled the SME sectors, and supported policies that helped them grow steadily while providing all the tools and environments. Hence, they turned into large national, regional, and global players.

At the same time, fifty years ago, in 1974, the USA was a 1.5 trillion economy; twenty years ago, in 2004, it was 12 trillion, and today, it is 27 trillion. What will this math look like when applied to dozens of other nations already poised to seek the same global power play in economics?

The USA was an ocean of SMEs since the past century. It was the first nation on the planet to create an entrepreneurial nation and became the largest superpower nation for the most extended period of time.

Fact: If no SMEs ever existed in the USA, China, and India today, they would be more like empty vast lands.

Fact: Entrepreneurialism is a hidden talent in each country, untapped and abandoned by most bureaucracies. A deep study of this wide-open historical progress of entrepreneurialism directly impacting national economies is a must, not to be found in the MBA syllabus; hence, study more on Google.

Like an open book, such practices have laid out the future for other nations worldwide in the last century. Some applied the rules of engagement and advanced dramatically, while most remained bystanders and spectators. What is next?

Fact: Only entrepreneurs create SMEs and nothing else, and only SMEs grow into a large global living organism and nothing else.

Fact: SMEs are the mothers of commerce; they have built commerce since the last millennia into what we call today the world's global commerce. Every major global corporation only started as a small, tiny, unknown enterprise by some unknown person. A study of the origins of the world's top 100 enterprises is recommended.

Fact: If such matters were openly discussed in universities, no brave student would ever go for an MBA degree and create huge personal debts but instead start with a small enterprise and become an entrepreneur.

Today, entering into entrepreneurialism is the easiest, with unlimited low-cost operational options and unlimited business models with the most significant market access. All it takes is a decision. Innovative nations understand this and open proper platforms.

SME Strategies: Lingering mistakes across 100 countries and their corrective measures

Q: Why is economic development without entrepreneurialism only economic destruction?

A: Economic development is supposed to deliver actual working and live enterprises and humming factory operations, but not some catalogs of fancy illustrations. Entrepreneurialism is humankind's only power and mysticism that creates such a metamorphosis, originates impossible ideas into vibrant enterprises, and uplifts economies. To date, neither the world of the economy nor the world of academia has been able to produce a special binder, tonic, pill, or ritual to do that. Economic intellectualism does its best by tabulating and forecasting but cannot generate tangible growth based on real-value creation. Economics is a numbering game; it is just smoke and screens. SME development involves actual goods and service creation challenges handled with entrepreneurial mindsets. Solutions: Deep orientation and fast-track immersion of all national economic teams are needed to help awaken new global shifts toward entrepreneurialism.

Q: Why any political power without economic power is no power?

A: Presidential offices are only rental real estate; the presidency is a revolving affair, but economic wisdom in entrepreneurial hands builds the long-term national economy, which is the real hidden power. Machiavellian trickery of political games is now for the clown in the novels; today, every second counts and is measured up, from inflation to deflation, jobless and hungry mouths, all visible on LinkedIn profiles of national economic teams, digital indexes showing GDP and global performance. Hence, the illusion of so-called success must be clarified, demonstrated, and fully supported with visible special skills to produce a real economy to occupy such offices and lead the nation. Solutions: Deep orientation and fast-track immersion of all national teams to grasp the global age of competitiveness.

Q: Why any economic power without entrepreneurial power is no growth?

A: The world's commerce was built solely by Entrepreneurship; there is no other substitute. Building empires is not about academic economic theories stacked like a house of cards. It is a direct result of entrepreneurial mysticism and its mysterious hunger to find global-scale solutions and change the face of the nations. Solutions: Deep orientation and fast-track immersion of all national teams to identify, categorize, and fully comprehend the entrepreneurial mysticism in easy SME adventure

Q: why any entrepreneurial power without a balanced mindset hypothesis is no power?

A: There are only two most significant mindsets in commerce: job seekers are career-minded and help build organizations. Job creators have entrepreneurial mindsets and create and start those enterprises in the first place. Both mindsets combined produce the most successful economies. Everyone should be qualified for a full refund, apologies, and compensation for years lost if their expensive MBA missed such critical narratives. Solutions: It takes a day to test the mindset; both mindsets are good but must be designated accordingly

Q: Why is the inability to identify, categorize, and digitize high-potential SMEs an economic development failure?

A: The entire principle of economic development is based on allowing and creating digital platforms so SMEs can skate around the world and open new doors of trade and commerce opportunities. Suppose there is no such progress despite all the tools and almost free technologies available during the last decade. In that case, the nation critically left them behind in a serious difficulty. The national economic mandate on high-potential SMEs must continue and continue. This neglect proves that such a critical powerhouse SME bases to grow into large economies mandated to job seeker mindsets without any entrepreneurial mindset is a significant error of economic leadership. Most of the 100 nations are in the same soup, with visible damage caused by ignoring the hidden entrepreneurial treasure amongst the national citizenry. Solutions: It takes a month of immersion and orientation to bring all teams on the same page.

The biggest challenge for the economic development teams of 100 countries today is why 99% of them currently only have a job-seeker mindset.

Fact: In business, there are only two main types of mindsets found anywhere in the world: job-seekers and job-creators. Job-seekers are skilled, career-minded individuals who contribute to building enterprises. On the other hand, job creators are out-of-the-box thinkers and entrepreneurs who start original ideas, lay the foundations, and create such enterprises in the first place.

Fact: Both mindsets are crucial for a thriving economy. However, the Mindset Hypothesis suggests that each mindset must be recognized and aligned for maximum performance optimization.

Fact: Today, 99% of economic development teams in the world's free economies only have a job-seeker mindset. The "Mindset Hypothesis" becomes crucial if economic development is facing challenges. Understanding all relevant definitions is essential to achieving national entrepreneurial mobilization.

If proof is requested: When over a million entrepreneurs have already created over a million original small and medium businesses, each of which has grown into creating over a million jobs, why is the lingering fear of identifying at least one Nobel Prize Winner in Economics, whoever built one such creation?

Caution: When economic expertise starts to control center politics stage and political expertise becomes confused and more influenced by outside forces over domestic issues, there is no longer economic development; historians have already named it tyranny. A globally lost generation of failed economics must realign with new thinking and face bold new narratives:

A decade in the making, this narrative is not a war but an open invitation to economic thinking to re-negotiate the terms, rules, and proper definitions of economic progress, not the current chaotic rules of SME management and disconnected debt-based economies.

The quick quiz test:
When did you last discover your mindset; what extraordinary uplifts and particular orientations were applied over time to make you a shiny contributor to the mandated tasks?

Once both mindsets were in the teams, what tremendous success was achieved? What efforts were activated by you or the entire department to achieve a harmonious blend? A 50% mix of mindsets is ideal; below 10% is not good and harms progress.

How often does your department open such discussions and debates and improve the inner core of progressive economic thinking? If not, what stops this, and what will open such transformation processes? SME success is already a proven model, so what is blocking this effort?

Deeper comprehension is required to appreciate the workings of entrepreneurial mysticism and why 10,000 failed tests were needed to finally create a single bulb, not to brighten Edison's room but the world—only because it was in darkness on every corner of the world. The mighty mysticism found the light and the solution. It was not some economic theories but a mystical series of entrepreneurial actions.

This overview will help address whether and how such national mobilization of entrepreneurship, uplift of high potential SMEs, up-skilling of exporters, and re-skilling of manufacturers is feasible in your country.

Here are TEN crucial steps to implement these economic survival ideas.

Why does the absence of ideas on SME economic recovery across the world's free economy make the Expothon narrative attractive? Focused on massive SME sectors within most countries within the GCC, OIC, European Union, African Union, Commonwealth, BRICS, and ASEAN, it explores immediately applicable pragmatic solutions.

The TEN Steps:
One: It takes ten days to design, develop, and customize a digitalization program with particular entrepreneurialism-based training guidelines to uplift all high-potential SMEs nationwide.

Two: It takes another 30 days to custom-design deployment strategy for a National Administration and Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism (NAME Protocols).

Three: It takes another 30 days of customized developments to implement well-planned, sleek operations to uplift the entire high-potential SME economy.

Four: It takes an additional ten days to test and assess the true potential and identify existing talents of all current national economic development teams.

Five: It takes another ten days to orient, train, and align the various local and national economic development teams, achieve clarity, and reach consensus on procedures.

Six: It takes another 100 days to identify, categorize, and digitize 5000 to 50000 potential SMEs.

Seven: It takes another 100 days to place them on customized digital platforms to expand them nationally and globally for exports and trade.

Eight: It takes 365 days of intense up-skilling and re-skilling to help them scale up and quadruple their productivity, performance, and profitability.

Nine: It takes about 500 days to quadruple exportability and uplift the national SME economy sectors.

Ten: A Cabinet-level meeting must make the "National Administration and Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism (NAME Protocols)" a national reality. Study more on Google.

Immediately applicable pragmatic solutions to uplift national economies

Most nations have 1000 to 1,000,000 SMEs. The following powerful recommendations are based on what may apply in your region.

How can this program generate USD$10 billion in new revenues and foreign exchanges via new SME up-skilling? How can it quadruple exportability performance and uplift SME sectors? How can it place 10,000 high-potential SMEs on a digital platform? How can we start the National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism?

It is achieved via continuously up-skilling exporters, re-skilling manufacturers, and orienting them to global standards of creativity, innovation, and the global age of competitiveness.

Once selected, these 10,000 SMEs will already be doing USD$1 to USD$5 million in annual turnovers, they would also be keenly interested in becoming national or global players with complete confidence and guidance.

Imagine, if only 25% of such SMEs had an increase of 50% in revenues and expansion, what numbers and economic gains would they produce? A calculator, please

This invitation-only program activated within a nation provides the depth, spectrum, and wisdom of global business expansion to prepare 5000 to 50,000 SMEs to face the global age of competitiveness and embrace global challenges.

Currently, this is the only platform that provides this global-age expertise to wrap around the entire SME base with such focus and specialized delivery of knowledge and rapid-fire expertise across the nation. What is stopping immediately taking corrective measures, establishing a national hub, and declaring national mobilization of SMEs as its national mandate? What special skills would this require?

Expothon engages at Cabinet levels to help draft a 'National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism' agenda for the nation. It will assign teams of 10-100 specialists to manage and execute the programs. It will also train 100 to 1000 government officials to become oriented to global-scale operations and guide the entire large-scale operations.

Upon qualification, Expothon will enter a 'customization phase,' during which a complete picture of the landscape is prepared to correctly decipher the size, required investments, and timelines with expected returns. Such execution requires intense work and full-time assignments of small teams from both sides. The results will be a customized, workable strategy for the region.

A new world of hyper-performance is emerging.

Now, the selection of the 100 Champions: Across 100 countries, Expothon Worldwide has started selecting a single local champion within each country and beginning a high-speed, high-value, top-level program orienting them on the Mastery of 'National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism Protocols,' allowing them to lead with global perspectives and global connectivity zooming in to help their local and national regions. Expothon is leading a quiet global revolution to uplift entrepreneurs via the National Mobilization of Midsize SMEs." America did these 100 years ago, China 30 years ago, India and Indonesia now, and Africa next.

Our narrative is now gaining global attention, as it is becoming popular in SME economic sectors. It is focused on 100 countries, including the GCC, OIC, EU, African Union, BRICS, and ASEAN. Those seeking national economic expansion with powerful entrepreneurial narratives on the podiums and global stages as a professional power play would like to be selected as the lead on the "National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism." Communication is open via LinkedIn for qualified candidates. Study more on Google.

Call an emergency national meeting amongst all top players on economic development fronts and openly discuss these issues. This narrative is an open challenge to the economic development community of the 100 countries and invites debates; "When Will Economic Intellectualism Finally Surrender to Entrepreneurial Mysticism?"

Three Red Alerts: Nevertheless, failing to understand the 'mindset hypothesis,' the difference between the job seeker and job creator mindsets is the first red alert in any senior-level dialogue on SME economic recovery. Failing to articulate the 'National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism' is the second red alert in any significant economic development activity. Failing to produce functional regional models of 'identification, categorization, and digitization' of potential SMEs is the third red alert of any SME sectoral policies—more on Google.

Amongst the economic development teams of 100 plus countries, those who are completely unaware, unexposed, and oblivious to the Expothon narratives, the new global trends and critical analysis must challenge themselves to face the realities or test their value offerings on critical needs of the day. This is a time when economic failures and global civil unrest has become a test of skills and competency, across all economies. Even if the above assertions are incorrect, it should not close the doors for open debates. Silence now indicates fear of exposing levels of competencies. In search of immediate solutions, no matter what, the times call for action; the Expothon narratives now opening the new global debates. Study more on Google.

The rest is easy.
