Daily Thought: July 11, 2018

When it comes to entrepreneurship, there is a lot of advice out there.

It’s no surprise that most of it comes from successful white guys who have already “made it.” They tend to share unhelpful quotes like, “Move fast and breaking things,” or, “Keep hustling.”

Now, you might be wondering, “What makes you any different? You’re a white guy who shares his thoughts online!”

The thing is, I haven’t made it. In fact, I’m probably still a long way off from where I want to be.

This might be due to the fact that, like a lot of people, I tend to learn things the hard way, which usually means it takes me a little longer to get to where I want to go. Growing up, I was the type of kid who always had to touch the stove, even after being told not to.

Honestly, I’m OK with this because I’m doing what’s best for me.

That’s all any of us can do. We can look to others for advice or inspiration but, at the end of the day, we have to do what’s best for us and the people we care about.

Whether that’s diving into entrepreneurship, starting a side hustle, or working that 9-to-5, do what’s best for you and you’ll never be wrong.
