Being an Entrepreneur is all that I have ever known. When I tell my “story”, I start with “I may have never had a J-O-B in my entire life”.
Maybe a little untrue, I worked for A&W as a teenager 🙂 The total truth, and the point I am looking to get across to the readers of this anthology is simple.
Entrepreneurship is a way of life, better yet, a way of living, and you can be an entrepreneur even if you don’t own the company you work for.
But to say that I “grew up as an Entrepreneur” is an understatement, it is just who I am, and the only way I have lived my life.
I chose my industry early, “Hospitality”, which encompasses bars, restaurants, hotels, distilled spirits and nearly everything you spend your leisure doing. I live in the service of others, and won’t change that till I die.
Here is my version;
An entrepreneur is one who organizes and manages any form of business, usually with much initiative and risk. Entrepreneurs engage in productive labour and show “hyper-organization” of personal and professional tasks.
In this anthology, I intend on providing a thorough and transparent look at the life of someone who “Grew Up Entrepreneur” in the most hospitable industry in the world. A geek in bartender’s glasses, with more education than sense.
Weekly you can take part in my anthology, learn from my mistakes and learn from the observations. Although I may reach into the “philosophy” of Entrepreneurship as much as the practical side, I am confident that you can find something from this series that will prevent your own costly mistakes.
Here is to hoping, now let’s get to doing.
