Entrepreneurship doesn’t discriminate. We’re all on a level playing field. We all get the same 24-hours a day.

That’s what makes it so great. We all have the same opportunity to improve our lives. We just have to take it.

All what it cares about is that you make money. How do you make money?

You offer something that helps people, you find a lot of people that need your help, and you continue to help them and make them happy.

But before all that can happen, you need to put in the time and the work.

So stop making excuses and get to work. Your future self will thank you!

  1. It’s so true. Unlike Little League baseball, entrepreneurship doesn’t give trophies for participation. Organizations, big and small, need to add something of particular value that addresses a need (read: a “pain point”), or at the very least do something that’s already been invented, but differently (read: cheaper). Always a good concept to keep in mind when starting your own venture! 🙂

  2. I took my first vacation since starting my business two years ago & the results have been incredible. I’m well-rested, energetic, and happier. I think my business is going to start caring a lot more about my vacation now that it can.

    • If/when your business affords you a vacation, there’s nothing wrong with taking one. I agree that they can be really beneficial and well worth the time away to regroup
