It’s about time I blogged on this – the fact that when you ask any entrepreneur, startup founder, C-level exec “how you doing?” the answer is usually the same! Busy! Crazy busy! Too too busy! Not enough hours in the day type of answer…and there’s the rub! Are you – are we – all too too busy?
Here’s what I’d like you to think about….being an entrepreneur is about the best/coolest/finest thing that could ever happen to a human being in my world. The creation of a new idea….the nurturing of same….the building of the basic framework of your company…the search for advisors and mentors and counsel from same…the first MVP (minimum viable product) for the marketplace…the customer validation and initial wedge into their consciousness…and then the pivots that come from all of these items. It takes time. It takes focus…and perhaps most importantly, it eats up your life.
Regular readers here will know that while we continue with our SEO practice, provide Mentoring to our Hamilton based Innovation Factory clients and have a startup or two of our own – we also very much look for leadership by any of our local community leaders.
