More so, the real question is why are you an entrepreneur? Seriously, what was the deciding factor that made you say, “I am not going to take my talents to South Beach, but instead, I will buy some sand and create my own.” Okay, maybe that wasn’t your quote… But what was the thing that made you decide to turn your back on a world of guaranteed paychecks and health insurance to instead sit in your home office for hours on end trying to become better at what you’ve always wanted to do?
For most of us, it is the joy that comes along with being our own boss… not having to answer to anyone [unless you have a spouse and a mortgage and a light bill and a car payment and children in private school and ……..…] Uhhm.. never mind. Maybe we still have to answer to SOMEONE, perhaps just indirectly. Maybe for you it was the freedom that comes with setting your own hours [which for most entrepreneurs is way more than eight per day, so you actually are LOSING free time].
The point is, before you can fully commit to entrepreneurship, you have to do some serious soul searching. Figure out why you are really doing it. This life is not all glamour and smiles. There will be low moments of frustration and borderline depression that will be contrasted at times by the moments of triumph and growth. If you’re going to do this - FOR REAL - then dig in and prepare for the light AND the shadows. It’s a beautiful life with a lot of ugly days.

“I received my business cards for my poetry through TheAIDG, and they were outstanding. I didn’t really have too much of an idea, just that I wanted an arrow and a slogan on it. What was shown to me was great. The card was kept simple but still impressive, which is what I was looking for. He even went on my twitter page and used my profile picture for a background on the back part of the card. Everything I asked for was on the card, and I will definitely be coming back to TheAIDG in the future.”—DDE [slam poet] #TestimonialTuesdays
