Heads Up Entrepreneur – Life’s Not Fair

Once upon a time there way a six-year-old girl taking a walk with her best friend, a black, toy poodle named “Noodles”.  Noodles looked a little like this:

To make a horrible story short, a Doberman became loose and attacked my bff and that was it for noodles. Here’s a cute picture of a Doberman – no hard feelings.

I was hysterical but I remember my life changed at that moment.  I’ve had several in my life that have really formed me into becoming an entrepreneur.

Anyway, my father stood before me as I cried, kneeled before me and said “It’s time you learn a really important lesson in life, Tara.”

I continued sniffily probably just wanting a hug.

My dad took me by the shoulders and said, “Life isn’t fair.”

There was an echo in my little ears.  The memories of events passed before me again and I understood. Straight I stood with my shoulders back and head up.  My future wasn’t going to be fair and to expect it was to live a life of ignorant regret.

Therefore I move forward with all passion, integrity and compassion possible looking forward to what loops life throws at me.

How does this apply to being an entrepreneur?  I have loved my businesses with everything in me. To make it good, it takes time to nurture and care for it much like having a child.  My customers and users become so close because I know them that well.  I want to.   It’s my responsibility.

However, I’ve also seen death in business.  Death of a dream.  Watched a site come down or doors close for the last time.   

There was an echo in my ears.  The memories of events passed before me again and I understood.  Straight I stood with my shoulders back and head up.  My future isn’t fair and I live a life of daring awareness.    ARE YOU?  LEAVE COMMENTS BELOW!
