Why an Entrepreneur?

Another good question for me to answer about myself today. Why did I choose to be an entrepreneur? Well, because I like the rush of experimenting with my life. I love trying new things! I love diversifying my career. I have chosen to do the things that I love most and make them work for a business that is mine! Can you hear the Rocky theme in your head? I can!

I'm excited! I'm going to write and cook and share the things I learn with you so that not only will you get the entertainment value of seeing someone screw up from time to time (not a chance) but you'll get the benefit of hanging out with greatness.

That's me...greatness!

This is me celebrating greatness with my dear friend Linda at Cafe Istanbul here in Decatur. I see myself celebrating the trials as well as the triumphs because that is how I will learn and grow in business. 

So, back to the original question: Why did I choose to be an entrepreneur? Because I want to be the one who picks up and drops off my little girl at school. Because I want to set a positive example for my friends so they will join in my quest for success. Because I want to build new, joyful friendships. Because I want an excuse to entertain, to cook, to write, to invite more joy into my life. Because I want the house at the beach, to never worry about Red's future, to leave her something BIG. Why not let it be about doing good business too? 

So, there you have it. That's why I chose to become an entrepreneur. I'm not afraid to say that anymore. I'm not scared of "no." I am excited about "yes!"

What might keep you from being your own boss? Come on, shoot out an answer or two and I'll invite you to the inaugural dinner.

Your Real Life Entrepreneur,

  1. I have always been my own boss; I wouldn't have it any other way, but I am ready to go beyond mere survival. I am looking forward to your inaugural dinner. I feel the earth move under our feet!
