I work with a lot of entrepreneurs who are trying to start something completely from scratch. Sometimes they’re tempted by the project because they want the income; sometimes they’re tempted by the project because they want to quit their job; sometimes they’re tempted by the project because they want to create a future for themselves.
Blogger Scott H. Young gives us an interesting and inspiring direction for building something. (Yes, he’s speaking to a broader audience than entrepreneurs, but that’s where I’m intersecting with the article so that’s what I’m focusing on). To summarize Young, if you want enjoy something and be successful at it, you need to build something interesting.
What a great idea! Read more about building cool things at Young’s blog.
There are SO many areas in the life of an entrepreneur that this applies to. And if we think of other successful entrepreneurs who have gone before, the blog post is true: Only those who have done something quite interesting are the ones who have been successful.
