Published on

The first morning I woke up as an entrepreneur is something I’ll never forget. It was about 4 a.m. in the morning, the house was all quiet, and I was thinking to myself, I don’t have a real job. I got up and paced the floor with one word in my head, foreclosure. I think back to that time and I was either running around like a chicken with my head cut off OR I was frozen. Needless to say neither of those functions make for a profitable business so I’ve had my fair share of mishaps. Mishaps brought on by bad and sometimes desperate decisions. Which leads me to another very valuable lesson I learned, desperate people don’t make good decisions. That was then, and this is now. The years of mistakes and setbacks have made me smarter and stronger. I’ve discovered how to free myself from the disease of perfection paralysis which allows me to get things done. I’ve also found great comfort and fortune in merely having a plan.
