Do you know the feeling when you see, touch and feel a newborn baby? You feel this sense of excitement that is wonderment and the amazing feeling of possibility. There is nothing like it in the world. When you see that baby for the first time, all of those feelings of wonderment and possibility just envelop you. It's almost that same as the feeling you have when you conceive a business. Your hopes and your dreams are all pure, untainted excitement about what this business can become.
I was reminded of that today as I sat listening to a group of ninth grade English students present, "Creating Your Own Business". Their thoughts were unscarred by society and not marred by politics or financial struggles. It was all the things that entice entrepreneurs to become entrepreneurs. Ok, so call me crazy for comparing human life birth to the birth of a business. But, there isn't a true entrepreneur out there who can dispute the fact that what drives them is that pure charge of raw energy. So, thank you to this group of ninth graders for reminding me of why people love small business.
Work hard, be productive, and above all else stay positive.
