"Let's see what I can do"

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Someone once identified it this way – “Entrepreneurship – Spending 100 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week for someone else.”

Why would anyone sign up for that?  

I think for most of us entrepreneurs, it’s not really about the money, it’s about seeing what we can do – the personal challenge.

What is it about for you?

The information you put out is always very valuable and this one is spot on also! I never heard it put that way but itโ€™s so true.

With all the businesses I have run or been part of it was never the money. Always being the best that I can be for myself and my companies. Rewards come after you do your best always.

Itโ€™s all about serving others in an impactful way. Making things better than they would hav been had you not acted. Leaving the world better than you found it.

I think we all have the DNA of The Creator in us. This DNA is full of creativity and passion. Unfortunately, only a select few recognize this within themselves. The money is certainly nice, but watching our passion and thoughts come to life and have an impact on the world around us is an amazing thing.

It about freedom for me. The freedom to pursue my business and personal goals.

i was told at previous job that it did not matter how hard I worked that my pay was set. The total lack of any incentive to try harder was my main motivation.

Blue sky is attractive to some birds. Also, some people are actually unemployable so they have to do their own business. Certainly when times are tough (not too often but here and there) it is easy to remind myself that I asked, no begged for it, and got what I asked for. On the other hand when times are rolling the money speaks for itself.

I like the challenges and itโ€™s something different everyday. Helping people and creating. After you been doing this for a while, the 100 hours a week donโ€™t feel like 100 hours. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

First, great insight from my fellow subscribers. Agree freedom and challenge are what brought most of us here. Financially speaking, many of us would even be better off up the ranks in corporate America. What keeps us going though is the opportunity to get involved in the community, serve and give back. In our case, we’re sitting on the board for two non-profits that provide child advocacy services. I simply would not have made these connections in the land of 8-5. It’s impossible to quantify, but knowing the money they do not pay for our services helps put vulnerable kids in a good home somewhere is pretty cool. Hit me up if you’d like to know how you can get involved in your area!

It is 100% about seeing what I am capable of accomplishing. If I provide enough value, and build something worthwhile, the money will follow.

Michael Fortenberry

I agree that it is the personal challenge

The freedom and opportunity to make a greater impact on those I serve, internal and external.
