Mind Your Own Business


What is it to have worked all your life, never having the faith or raw courage to take a leap of faith and empower yourself in the spirit of entrepreneurship. What is it to have tried, and failed, then try a second time and fail again, only to be successful the third time around. The old adage is to climb back upon that horse after falling off, and complete your ride. What if Orvil and Wilbur Wright would have said "man will never fly"!!

Courage to leave the safe environment of a 9 to5 job, where your income is steady may take time to muster. The hesitant manner in which you approach your true destiny may cause you to make a decision that would dictate the remainder of your life spent working a job that you truly hate. Moreover, you continue the arduous routine until the proverbial gold watch is placed on your wrist, and you slip into a life of "what could have been".

Entrepreneurship is no easy task, but allows for a journey of self-discovery and infinite independence if planned properly. It is said that no one should start a business just to become rich, but to be involved in a commercial activity that they love. I firmly believe that if you enjoy what you do, and you do it well, the true riches from your endeavors will come sooner than later. If you have a talent or skill that may be marketable for your own commercial benefit, take the leap of faith. Don't just think about it, be about it. There are a plethora of opportunities to take the plunge, and a market waiting to be served with your products or services. You will definitely discover that you command more control over your destiny when your innovative thinking brings you a respectable return on your investment.

If you ever thought of starting your own business, take that leap and get started. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Thank you very much.
