Have you ever had one of those days?
|Clinton Douglas and Kari Lea (Owners-Infinity Designs) at Henry T's|
Today was that kind of day for me and my partner in crime! It didn’t matter how small or large the task was... everything Clinton Douglas and I touched, turned to “shiitake”(mushrooms)!
If you are an entrepreneur, like us, you have days like this under your belt. It seems like the harder you try the worse things get until that glorious moment when one of you looks over at the other in total defeat and says those magical words... “Efff this day! Let’s go get a Bloody Mary!” And this my friends is exactly why he is the ZING to my ZANG! Lol!!!
I share this with you because there is something reassuring about knowing that you aren’t alone. If I had experienced this day solo, there is no doubt it would have ended in tears and discouragement. I would have been questioning if I was able to succeed and wondering if this journey was actually worth it.
I recognized TWO things today:
1. It’s important to have someone to encourage and support you. If you don’t have a business partner, get involved with an industry networking group or mentor... someone that knows that as an entrepreneur, the Struggle is Real!
2. Know when to walk away and hit the RESET button. Sometimes it just takes a little break (or a little alcohol) to change the vibe!
Bottom line...Entrepreneurship is not for the faint-hearted. It is a rough and rugged road that most people would choose to avoid traveling. But here’s the deal... If being a small business owner was easy, everyone would do it. YOU chose this road because YOU knew that even though this journey was seemingly impossible, completely exhausting, and undeniably insane... it was THE ROAD WORTH TRAVELING!
And that is what makes YOU an Entrepreneur ❤️
