TO MY FELLOW ENTREPRENEURS and SOCIALPRENEURS!!! This post is JUST for you.
Very few people know what it means to start a company and deal with all the problems that WE have to specifically deal with. It takes incredible courage and stamina to keep going after you have taken all the hits you've taken.
Remember your vision! Remember that you are resilient and strong and have a community to turn to for help.
When you see pride and hubris show up, humble yourself quickly or you will be humbled by something quickly...those are the true killers of the entrepreneur.
I honor all vision-driven entrepreneurs today.
Especially those with a social purpose and those committed to leaving a positive impact on the planet using their conscious businesses. Breathe deep and acknowledge yourself today for the work you have done and the impact you have already had. Yes, there is more work to do....there will ALWAYS be more work to do, period.
Right now....know that a fellow-entrepreneur GETS the struggle, feels the pain you have felt, has been scared the way you've been scared, and has at times wanted to give up and throw in the towel and get a secure "job" that lets some other company take those concerns off your plate.
I'm in this with you as are many others in this community!
You got this! You rock!
