Business with Pleasure

You can’t always mix business with pleasure. Sometimes it’s just a pleasure to do business and simply just that.

In the beginning of my career, I was a people pleasure. So concerned about the feelings of others; that I didn’t pursue some of my own dreams. Watering down my talents so that my “friends”, didn’t mistake my endeavors as competition- was detrimental long term.

Problem with that? Selling myself short! If it doesn’t make dollars, it literally made no CENTS. Lol

Others would request advice, take my knowledge, utilize it, reap the benefits, and profit without so much as a thank you.

Entrepreneurship requires strategic thinking, the ability to adapt to change, as well as courage to execute by taking risks. This is where my passion for consulting began. Those serious enough about what they want will be willing to invest in themselves. Time, experience, expertise, and energy, aren’t free.

Chapter 10Confront Your Mortality—the Sublime

Socrates once implied that wise men seek death all of their lives, and they don’t try to escape from its grasp! In truth there are only two options: 

The first one allows you to get as far away as possible from every thought that signalizes death. This way you’ll cling to the illusion that you have all the time in the world to make things right.

Option #2 indicates that this inevitable truth actually works in your favor. How’s that? This way you’ll be able to put your focus on the most important things and live life fully, without regrets. Knowing that death lurks behind every corner, you’ll embrace a fearless attitude and an idea to dread nothing.
