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..

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
