But I digress. As you may expect of someone that wants to start a business, I have an inherent restlessness built into me that is, to be frank, frustrating. Like many people, I’m never happy with what I’ve got and suffer horribly from ‘grass is greener’ syndrome.
The first negativity that I felt towards the business was from a family member who felt I should be focusing on a corporate career, seeing this as a distraction from a ‘proper job’. In many ways, I agree totally. This is far more risky and on all probabilities, will fail. The problem is that the more negativity I receive, the more it compels me to travel the ‘narrow road’!
A great quote sums up all I need to remember on this journey:
‘Entrepreneurship is doing things that people don’t, to lead a lifestyle they can’t have’
