Sonia's Business

actually since I'm posting it on the internet, it's become everyone's business :) As I reflect on what I have learned in my Intro to Entrepreneurship class this week there are a few things that really made me think.

In reading the article Living life as an Entrepreneurial Hero there were some things that stood out: "dig deeply for your special talents and gifts and use them to bring you joy and enrich your life and serve others." This seemed to be the theme across most of the readings and videos from this week, to find something we love and go do that.

"Dream big but start with small steps." it is so easy to feel overwhelmed when you dream big, that most of the time you don't know where to start. This gave me a gentle reminder that I can start small and start anywhere. Sooner or later all the small steps will come together to bring the big dream into reality.

"Choose a goal, grand or small. Find a challenge, pick a foe, start a fight, no matter what compels you, you must pass through the narrow gate that first step that signifies that there is no turning back." This statement validated some of my crazy thoughts and actions. On January 15th of this year I walked out of a job that was everything that I had been working towards only because my new boss was the worst boss on the planet making my otherwise perfect job into a toxic work environment.

"Accept that life is hard and seldom fair." The author then describes some major hardships and then states "these wounds hurt, but wounds like these often provide fuel for entrepreneurial heroes." These words really resonated. I have been to hell and back more times than I can count. And at the end of each trip I can recall remember the words that our trails build on each other one prepares you for the next. I also recall thinking, I have no idea what I am being prepared for but it is going to be one hell of a fight.

"Will it be worth it in the End." I really hope so!
