Why I Chose the Long, Lonely Path of Entrepreneurship

In two words, spiritual growth.

That’s it.

Many times already, I’ve questioned why I am taking on all this stress, overwhelm, responsibility, and work.

One simple answer is, I’ve grown more while doing my own stuff.

Pressure and tension lead to growth.

Growth leads to skills, experience, and wisdom.

All this increases my ability to create sovereighty, security, and freedom, which is ultimatley what I need in life.

Sovereignty, security, and freedom allow me the space and resources to live a deep life full of love, experience, impact and joy.

I’d much rather own a house and pay more into my own asset than spend thousands of dollars on someone else’s house…

This life is short.

I want to take every opportunity I can to grow, live, help others, heal the earth, and prepare for my death and hopefully transcendence on to whatever is next.

My first tattoo was four shapes on the back of my tricep.

  1. Explore
  2. Learn
  3. Create
  4. Transcend

“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance at doing what you love.”

If I can learn how to start a business, get people’s attention, makes sales, and scale, I will never have to worry about supporting myself and my family.

It’s counterintuitive.

We’re programmed to see getting a steady job as the safest choice, but when you remove the veil, it’s just not true.

I’d much rather struggle for 10 years while building life-long skill, than make good money at a secure job.

This decision isn’t for everyone. And no, it’s not superior in any way.

Many people have amazing ideas and visions that align with yours. You can find those people and help them make it a reality.

Intrapreneurship is cool.

intrapreneurship refers to a system that allows an employee to act like an entrepreneur within a company or other organization. Intrapreneurs are self-motivated, proactive, and action-oriented people who take the initiative to pursue an innovative product or service. An intrapreneur knows failure does not have a personal cost as it does for an entrepreneur since the organization absorbs losses that arise from failure.

Investopedia

Indepreneurship is cool too

There’s also the Indepreneur, which Seth Godin and Aubrey Marcus spell out nicely here.
