I’ve long believed that the world can be and really ought to be saved by entrepreneurs. I don’t think that I knew what that meant when I first thought it, nor am I particularly certain what form it takes today. Having said that, I am certain that it is true.
We Have the Potential to Be the Change
I’m blessed in my relationships with other entrepreneurs, mostly through my Membership in the Entrepreneurs Organization. Without exception – they are exceptional people. All of them. Indeed it’s true, every single entrepreneur I have met is a truly interesting and exceptional person and I have been further blessed to have learned a great deal from them all.
They’ve shared lessons of triumph, failure, despair and perseverance. These are resilient, determined and sacrificing people who are committed to the notion that they can be the change they want to see. They may not be actively altruistic, but they are all impactful.
More than that, they all underestimate the impact they make on those around them. Perhaps they have also underestimated their impact on me.
Which brings me to this blog and podcast.
Welcome to Paper Napkin Wisdom
I’m embarking on a journey to share one story every day … each and every day. The first of the stories will come on Monday October 28th.
You’ll hear stories that align with my core values of Drive (I do more with less and never quit until I deliver), Impact (I aspire to be a difference maker every day, all the time), Approach (I believe in balance – family first and have fun with what I do), and Leadership (I take responsibility – I don’t wait for it to be given to me). Passion and purpose are superimposed over all of these.
I promise to put myself out there and really share my experiences openly and know that my guests will do the same.
In truth, I’m doing this for myself and for other entrepreneurs, but know that these stories will be of impact to anyone.
I also promise you’ll get a kernel, a nugget of wisdom from each of them in a way you won’t soon forget.
Until next week!
