I recently had someone tell me that I was their hero for starting my own company after 20 years as an employee. Though I appreciate the comment, the reality is I’m not a hero, but someone who took the opportunity to follow my dream when it was presented. One of the defining characteristics of an entrepreneur is that they are open to exploring new opportunities and have a bigger picture in mind. I didn’t truly understand that until I left my job to start my own business. In this video, I share the events which were my catalysts for changing my life.
