Dot Com Pho – Entrepreneur Zombies Edition

After taking a break from Pho last week because of Freelance Camp, the crew headed back to Happy Pho for another fun filled and action packed Dot Com Pho. The Dot Com crew in this case was made up of only five members since Stephen Fung and Michael Kwan are in Taipei for Computex. Making it for this week’s episode were myself, Josh Rimer, Pete Quily, Ed Lau and Wolfgang Christl.

This edition of Dot Com Pho features the complete Entrepreneur Heroes trading cards collection. The cards are the work of Evan Carmichael. He came up with the idea to raise money for Kiva, an nonprofit organization that helps entrepreneurs in third work countries. So far, sales of the cards have helped over 1,000 third world entrepreneurs to start their own businesses.

Since I have the complete card collection, I’ve decided to give away the final five packs of cards to five readers. If you want a pack of Entrepreneur Heroes trading cards, simply reply to this post and you’ll be entered. I’ll draw the winners at next week’s Dot Com Pho.

For the Entrepreneur Zombies Edition of Dot Com Pho, we have what Ed Lau thinks of Surrey and Surrey girls, the iPad app of the week which features zombies that can break through doors but not through plants, a great quote by Bill Gates and getting an autograph from Michael Arrington. Enjoy and good luck winning a pack of trading cards!

  1. Only a 3 hour lunch this week, not too bad John!

    1. Hey, when you’re JC status, you can break for as long as you want πŸ˜›

      1. d3so says:

        Yup, my goal in life is to reach JC status. I don’t care about being a doctor or even a CEO of a huge company. Too much work πŸ˜›
        I’d rather work smart than work hard.

        1. Jay says:

          There is only one JC in this world and his name is John Chow.

        2. Working smart is the way to go about it. But initially a bit of hard and smart work will not be such a bad idea, trust me.

          1. d3so says:

            That’s true. To get to where JC is requires hard work, which is what I’m going through now πŸ˜‰

          2. SEO Results says:

            You’ve got years of catching up to do. so matching JC will be a tough task. There is nothing wrong with being ambitious however, and your tenacity is what will ultimately ensure your success.

        3. Lol, I am sure John worked very hard to get where he is today. You don’t get to this level without putting 120% effort in it. SY

          1. Every success demands dedication, labour and time.

        4. PPC Ian says:

          Working smart and not hard is what it’s all about! Leverage!

    2. Salesfist says:

      One day I will experience that…

  2. Dino Vedo says:

    wow.. awesome entrepreneur playing cards!! cant wait to get my hands on them and start battling other entrepreneurs… hopefully i can get them to evolve and get stronger!

  3. SEO Results says:

    I would really love a set of the Entrepreneur Heroes trading cards. Does the fact that I am the first one to post comment give my cause any advantage? Regardless, I wish everybody who comments good luck in the draw.

    1. John Chow says:

      You need to be quick to be first. πŸ˜› Better luck next time!

      1. SEO Results says:

        DANG! I got held up in the moderation queue! Iwas first, I swear πŸ™‚

  4. Well, I did like to have those card, hopefully I’m lucky to get selected.

  5. Forex Master says:

    I would like to get one pack John.

  6. hey.. i hope to get lucky and win the set of cards.. keeping my fingers crossed..

    1. Best of luck man.

      Everyone is looking for those cards.

  7. Hey John, your “Entrepreneur Heros” link goes to a missing page…

    Not Found

    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.

    1. John Chow says:

      Thanks. The link works now.

  8. d3so says:

    I used to collect pokemon & yugioh cards. I don’t mind collecting entrepreneur cards. It’ll be easier to collect since there’s only about 30 or so.
    Count me in for the drawing, I’m always down for freebies πŸ™‚

    1. Jay says:

      Interesting idea with the cards for charity. I used to buy booster packs and sell the shiny Pokemon cards to my classmates. Hustling since ’99.

    2. Why does you collecting pokemon cards not surprise me… πŸ˜›

      1. d3so says:

        Yea, I used to do the same! Although, I do regret selling my holographic charizard because that was the first rare card.

        1. Yes now you are growing and now your choice should also change …

          1. d3so says:

            Of course! Although, now I don’t think I collect anything.

  9. Benjamin says:

    I would like a pack

  10. Sveny says:

    The trading card game was a good idea.

  11. I sure would love to get my hands on a deck of those cards.

    So definitely count me in for the drawing.

    Thanks John C. for making this opportunity available.

  12. Please count me in for the draw too. I would like to win a set of entrepreneur’s cards.

    1. You too Net Age … great …

  13. drizzler says:

    Wow, looks like you’ve already got the cards framed and everything! Nice to see them benefiting a good cause.

  14. I would love a set of the Entrepreneur cards John, I’ve got my fingers crossed.

    Also, the Plants VS Zombie’s game is incredible – one of my favourite iPhone apps!

    1. I was so addicted to PVZ on iPhone for like 2 weeks until I beat every level. I had a chance to play the iPad version and it looks awesome on the big screen. PopCap did a great job, it’s probably one of the most polished games available.

  15. Forgot to mention in my previous post, I would like to be entered in the draw also πŸ˜‰ SY

  16. PPC Ian says:

    John,
    I’d love to be entered in the drawing for those cards – how cool!
    All the best,
    Ian

  17. Why the first pocket was empty ?

    1. Did not get the reply …

      Why the first pocket of your album was empty John ???

  18. Good thing to help others with non-profit organisations.

  19. That’s great John, count me in! I also admire Evan Carmichael work for raising fund on Kiva for entrepreneurs on third world countries.

    1. Kiva is certainly doing great stuff.

      I think Ed Dale is also supporting Kiva through his blog.

  20. Addy Kho says:

    I want in! πŸ™‚

  21. I’m definitely in! I love that Vince McMahon is a part of it. I’m a huge WWE fan.

  22. I agree! working smart is probably better than working hard. But if you can mix those things by being smart while working hard, I guess the results will be much better.

    Regards,

    Gary

  23. John … you should look at this video … simple awesome –

  27. Jef says:

    Hello John.
    I’ve been a member of Kiva since November 2006 and have made 15 loans so far. It’s a great feeling to see people making their lives a little better for them and their children. Please enter me in the card contest. Another great way to support Kiva.

  28. eleftheria says:
