I am an entrepreneur.⠀

For some, hearing this word sparks many different thoughts, feelings or emotions.
As an entrepreneur, we endure quite a few things. Some good, many not so good.

All we ask is that you be nice to entrepreneurs. We are out there creating and building something for our families. Not all of us are money-hungry ogres. Use your judgment. We’re working hard, love what we do and are sharing it with others.⠀Just like any other career choice, entrepreneurship requires us to do the work, put in the effort and show up. Most times more work and effort than other positions.⠀

This is a very EMOTIONAL field. How? Well, We will deal with many types of people who will do their best to derail our success. Sometimes unintentional, yet often intentional. People will be rude, disrespectful of our time, and can be unsupportive.⠀

We are required to put in hours at various times of the day. We go to bed in the wee hours of the morning and wake up a few hours later. We often work during holidays, sacrifice family functions, vacations, outings and milestones. Most of the time, we realize the sacrifices are temporary and must be made to achieve our long-term goals.⠀

We are continually tested. We have many days we want to quit and go back to what seems like the “norm”, but we soldier on.⠀

This path isn’t for everyone. Many  quit even before they start. You have to ask yourself if the time, effort, sacrifice is really worth it? For many, the answer is no. For the select few, the answer every time is YES!!!⠀

At the end of the day, you have a choice – build your future or work for someone else and help them build theirs.⠀

The choice is ours.
