Moving Forward

In Uncategorized on May 7, 2008 at 10:42 pm

I have one huge passion in my life. Entrepreneurship. I love the thought of people starting their own business from the ground up, doing something they love and are talented at and building it into a thriving full-time business. I never once, for some stupid reason, guessed that this passion would be part of my career. Don’t ask me why. I just never thought it would. Which is weird because I’m constantly encouraging others to pursue their dreams, strive towards their passions etc etc etc. When I was saying this to myself (“self, strive towards your passion!”) I never thought “encouraging others to build their own businesses is my passion”, I instead thought “I should start my own business”.

So when this new job decided to pop it’s head up and wave, I was a bit weary of it. It seemed to be what I was interested in, but not quite what I was looking for in a job. I had another interview that I was considering so I pushed this one to the side and decided that if my other interview went well I would take it. If I didn’t hear back from the interview, I would consider it confirmation that I was supposed to take the first job. I ended up taking the first job.

The more I get into this one, the more I get excited about it. It’s all about supporting new business ventures and owners, providing training and technical support and advice. Already, in the first day, I’ve seen the response and excitement from new business owners and dreamers. I can’t wait to see what the days ahead have for me; the training, the help I can give, the encouragement. I can’t wait to see the success of the businesses we help! 

Isn’t it so strange that you find another piece to your life puzzle where you weren’t expecting?

By the way, what’s the funnest thing you’ve done this week?

  1. Hi Katelyn Jane

    Great to see your passion for entrepreneurship and taking on new challenges. When you get a chance, we just wrote a book that you might like titled Life Entrepreneurs: Ordinary People Creating Extraordinary Lives (through Jossey-Bass). Check it out and let us know what you think http://www.lifeentrepreneurs.com

    Cheers, CG

    p.s. we also just went live with our personal life entrepreneurs assessment – again, would love to know what you think. All the best in your own path.

  2. The book looks great! I’ll have to let the co-workers know about it and maybe we’ll order a few copies for the Entrepeneur Center.
