An entrepreneur is a fighter





A lot of people are throwing around the term entrepreneur but don't really know what it means. 


I get it. Entrepreneurs seem to have amazing lives. No boss, lots of money, freedom, autonomy, big spirits, and pretty much get to do what they want to do all day and get paid for it.You get to be in charge and make the most important decisions. It costs to be the boss and it sounds good to say you've paid it...



That's just the glamorous side of it. The reality of it is, an entrepreneur has to build anything they want to call their dream. If you've ever tried to start and run a businesses, or even just one business you'll know there's an ugly side.The side that most people can't endure or deal with. The side that will make you quit and run home to mommy corporate America faster than you can spell BOSS! 

Entrepreneurship comes with its share of ups and definitely with it's share of downs. The actual working and growing of the business. The competition. The loneliness. The irregular salaries and work schedule. Your business is like a living organism. It's your baby. You can't just drop it when things don't go your way. You can't put it on the back burner. You can't just quit if things get difficult. You can make a lot of money, you can also lose a lot of money. You'll have to be self reliant. You'll have to work harder for yourself and your family than you ever worked for a job. You'll have to focus harder than you ever have before. 

An entrepreneur is a fighter. If you're not ready to grit your teeth and dig in, don't take the plunge into entrepreneurship. It's not for the faint at heart. Go get a job. Build someone else's dream if you're not ready to fight for yours. There are much easier ways to make money. 


Am I saying you can't do it or telling you not to? No way!

 I'm just telling you to get on your guard and prepare for battle if you want in! 

To your your freedom..

Decade end....

Quick question...
Have you reviewed your decade yet?
I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close.
Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :)
Where were you in your business in 2010?
Where are you now?
What did you start?
What did you end?
What investments did you make?
What skill sets did you learn?
What did you miss out on?

I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of. 
Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes
