Bold and brave.
Those are two words I think of most often to describe entrepreneurs I have the privilege to work with. After all, for most people, going “out on your own” is just a dream. And few (the bold and brave) follow through with action to make their dreams come true. And I love helping those risk takers because they inspire me to keep on keepin’ on, too.
Bold and brave people gave us freedom to be entrepreneurs.
Think about how much of the world can’t pursue their creativity. And all the people who will possibly never know what it’s like to build a business and make money based on a dream. In America, we pretty much take it for granted that we can do those things if we truly want to. But we should never forget how much our freedom cost. More than we’ll ever be able to repay. So, what we CAN do is work hard to pass on our freedom to future generations. Make sure they can pursue their dreams. Follow their passions. Have hope for each new day.
Independence Day, the 4th of July here in America, is the perfect time to acknowledge the bold and brave men and women who served our country and helped provide and protect our freedom. Because of them you and I are able to take risks, start our own businesses, and make a better life for ourselves and our families.
So, I’m here to celebrate the bold, the brave, the free, and the entrepreneurs. And I want to especially remember all the wonderful people I’ve personally worked with who help keep the dreams of freedom alive every day. I’m thankful for you, and I salute you.
Happy Birthday America!
