Yo, Mr. Delusional

Top frame. Red dot.
This: I’m not delusional. I’m an entrepreneur. True that.

Yo, Mr. Delusional.

Yeah?

How’s your business going?

If you’re a business owner, you know the answer.

If you’ve never owned your own business, you’ll never understand.

You can’t. It’s impossible to understand what you haven’t experienced.

This is neither good nor bad. It’s just a train of thought as i look at the GapingVoid art piece four feet from the keyboard i’m typing on for this post.

So What?

Long days, make them count

Last night at Scribble Space. West Orlando WordPress meeting. Continuous learning and development is a focus.

Long days.

Make them count.

Up at 4:30 AM, instead of the usual 5:00 AM.

Work through the day.

Attend local lunch gathering at Scribble Space for small business owners at noon.

Quick stop at SunTrust Bank to place my phone unlock code and Apple ID (once phone is unlocked) in safety deposit box.

Arrive home just in time to join 2:00 PM Quickbooks webinar.

Continue doing business strategy work for 2020 and 2021.

Return to Scribble Space to attend local WordPress meeting at 6:00 PM.

Home after 8:00 PM.

Not recommending nor condoning this lifestyle.

Long days are part of being an owner.

(csn, text me the you pass this sentence. Ty.)

So is making choices.

Having better choices and more control is the get-to-do aspect that balances and supersedes the have-to-do aspects of business ownership.

No really

Let this be a reminder how frustrate​d i was

Let this be a reminder how frustrate​d i was.

To the wrong person, you can see it, right?

Ego. He just likes using his photo.

Yeah, that’s it.

Happy present moment.

Anyone who owns their own business understands that it’s different than working for someone else. Entirely different. There isn’t a thing as a business owner that you don’t have to be concerned with. You’re responsible for it all.

All. Of. It.

Every. Day.

All. Day.

Being Brave

How many books should a first time author order?

Lone yellow ball on dimly lit floor
Some curious questions come with no-risk answers like, what is this photo?

 

How many books should a first time author order?

How much of anything should a small business entrepreneur invest in?

If we’ve never struck out on our own, then when we do, everything is new. Uncharted. Unpredictable. Uncertain. Uncomfortable.

A true test of patience, and vision.

Reminds one of Lewis and Clark.

Indomitable Will
Indomitable Will

Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Here is the life-changing take-away:

When you work for someone else, you:

  1. Earn
  2. Pay Taxes
  3. Spend

When you work for yourself, you:

  1. Earn
  2. Spend
  3. Pay Taxes

I ain’t the brightest bulb in the box, but I get this. It took a lifetime, and a great book, but I get it now.

Of course, not knowing this most basic of economic structure is very embarrassing.

My Dad had two side businesses.  My Grandfather had one too. My wife’s Grammy ran a one-room grocery store for 45 years.

What did they teach me?

Nothing.

How is that possible?

There is no good or decent answer, except to say, “That’s just the way it was back then.”

What a shame. But it is what it is.  No bitterness.  Lost opportunity to be sure.  But no bitterness.

Now, only hope, determination and of course, indomitable will.  Like the early pioneers.
