The Entrepreneurs Journey - The Road We All Travel

When we decide to take the steps to start a business, the decision to make a new start brings a companion along. The companion’s name is doubt. It hangs around in the back of our minds and rears its ugly head at different stages in our journey.

Since starting a new business and doubting your success have such a close relationship, you will need to add yet another companion to the mix This new companion’s name is determination. Now, determination is a headstrong companion, and it plays a vital role in your journey. You will find over time that having determination at your side will give you that extra push you will need  to take your business to the next level.

Even with determination on your side there is one more companion you mustbring along and that companion’s name is accountability. Accountability is there to keep you focused on your goals, to make sure you are not distracted by doubt and to make sure you do not waver in the decision to make a new start.

A new start brings on doubt and makes us question our decisions. The spirit of determination is there to keep pushing us forward in spite of it all. As we move forward, we must always embrace accountability for the decisions we make.

What companion is on this journey with you?

Be Inspired!

Coworking Environment Embraced


downloadI am so delighted to see the Richland Library open space in the main branch for coworking. For those of you who don’t know what coworking is, it is a shared workspace where entrepreneurs work independently alongside each other. I became fascinated with this concept a few years ago while working in an internship.

In a coworking space the atmosphere is one of creativity and collaboration. Some of the best ideas are formed when a group of individual start to brainstorm. The Richland library exhibits what is needed to in the business community. Opening a space for entrepreneurs and self-employed people is definitely a positive move in the right direction.

There is no fee to use the space, but you do need to have a Richland Library card. You will be able to reserve a desk for up to 4 hours a day. I hope to see other businesses with extra space or even builds do something like this.
