Dear New Entrepreneur,
Congratulations on quitting your job! I know you’re feeling on top of the world and ready to tackle anything thrown your way. Remember this moment. It’s a pivotal point in your evolution. You’re going to look back at this decision a few years from now and pat yourself on the back for being the brave soul in a world where complacency is the norm. You’ve joined an elite group of non-conformists.
It takes courage to step out into the unfamiliar to pursue a greater purpose. Bottle this courage, because you’ll need it again when you make important decisions.
I know some people called you crazy, and you feel that no one understands your decision, but don’t worry about them. It’s not for anyone else to understand. Your purpose is between you and God.
I want you to realize that this journey is going to be filled with an equal amount of ups and downs, but keep the faith. No matter how dark it gets, remember your why. Your why will fuel you when the mercurial tides of entrepreneurship knocks your boat over in the ocean.
I made plenty of costly mistakes within my first year of business. You will also make your fair share, but continuously learn and improve. Failure is not the end of the world, so don’t be so hard on yourself. We all fall on our face at some point. Every successful person has a story of a character-building failure that catapulted them to success. Dust yourself off and try again.
In entrepreneurship, the timing is always perfect. Your fortune can literally change overnight. You might be down to your last $5, and suddenly you land a $15,000 client. Embrace the uncertainty with the reassurance that everything works out for your good.
Because of your entrepreneurial journey, your friendship circle will ultimately evolve to reflect your new path. Please allow it to happen, and understand it doesn’t mean you love your current friends any less.
I know you’ve heard the saying, “you’re the sum total of your 5 closest friends.” Do yourself a favor and hang around other wealthy-minded people. If you hang around four millionaires, you will become the 5th.
I’m proud of the person you’re becoming. This is such an exciting time for you, and it’s only the beginning.
I’m rooting for you. ❤
Said with love,
