It breaks my heart when I hear about leaders who feel trapped in their businesses. I was fortunate to receive great advice early on which has helped me avoid some of this pain (not all of it).
These are the stairs I climb to get to my favorite breakfast spot, the place where I sit down and work on turning this dream I have into a reality.
Success in life is living out your priorities. It’s not achievement. It’s not money. It’s not status or stuff. For me it’s my wife and kids saying “He put us first. He chose us over everything else. He gave us his time. He made sure we knew we were loved.”
If all of your time is spent on services and support, you aren’t running a business, you are working for one. It’s just yours instead of someone else’s.
The hardest part about starting something is that all of the responsibility shifts from you working on someone else’s ideas to you working on your own ideas.
I love technology. I love the internet. I love social media. If it was not for these things, I many not have the career I enjoy, the friends I have made, and the education I have received.
