dave1. Noise-Cancelling Headphones

“Noise-cancelling headphones are important because they allow you to focus in on your work without hearing all the distracting noise. No matter where you are, you can throw them on and enter into your own world. This is needed for the traveling entrepreneur. ”

Nikki Robinson2. Self-Stirring Coffee Cups

“Self-stirring and self-heating coffee mugs have a simple design that cuts out precious time for that busy entrepreneur!”


Nikki Robinson, Gloss and Glam



Vinny Antonio3. Samsung Galaxy Camera

“Not only do you get all of the great features of a Galaxy device, but you also have a 16MP camera. I am absolutely hooked on my Samsung Galaxy Camera. You capture, share and repeat. ”


– Vinny Antonio, Victory Marketing Agency



Joel Apfelbaum4. Google Glass

“Google Glass is incredible. These glasses allow you to multitask like never before. I am able to make phone calls, navigate my car, take photos and video and upload information to the web seamlessly by using my voice and my eyes. This gadget will definitely change the way any entrepreneur handles his or her business in 2014. ”


Joe Apfelbaum, Ajax Union



Adam Callinan5. Coin and Card Consolidator

“This awesome gadget is going to substantially decrease the girth of my money clip that is filled with various cards I need to carry on a daily basis. I know of more than a couple entrepreneurs who will benefit from the lighter load. There is no question that this technology is genius and will have a much greater reach over time that will expand far beyond credit cards.”


– Adam Callinan, BottleKeeper



Seth Talbot6. Fitbit Force

“Go, go, go! That’s the life of a busy entrepreneur, and we rarely find time to focus on our health and overall wellness. I like the Fitbit Force because it replaces my watch and adds visual reminders that keep me thinking about moving, being healthy, counting calories and not driving myself into an early grave. ”


Seth Talbott, AtomOrbit



Kristopher Jones7. Pebble Smartwatch

“The coolest gadget this season is the Pebble Smartwatch. The coming year will undoubtedly be the year of the smartwatch with Apple and others getting into the game, and as an entrepreneur, the time is now to familiarize oneself with the opportunity.”

Patrick Vlaskovits8. Moleskine Pen

“Every entrepreneur I know has a Moleskine notebook, but most don’t have a Moleskine pen that clips natively into the notebooks. They’re super handy and cool.”


Patrick Vlaskovits, The Lean Entrepreneur



Brandon Wu9. Kubo

“A pre-order of this box-carrying electric scooter so you can get to coffee meetings around the city easily, even if you have to bring all the equipments for a demo. ”


Brandon Wu, AdCrafted



Aaron Schwartz10. Amazon Kindle

“I still like buying books for friends and entrepreneurs, especially. We have so much to learn about our industries, leadership and sales strategy. Too few of them want to carry the books with them, though, so the new gift for close friends is a Kindle. Selfishly, this makes it easier for me to give them books in the future!”


Aaron Schwartz, Modify Watches



josh weiss11. Google Chromecast

“Nobody should be watching Netflix on an iPad when a 50-inch TV is available. Chromecast makes it quick and easy to watch Netflix and other media sources on a TV without wires.”


Josh Weiss, Bluegala
