Entrepreneurs Share A Commonality!
As an entrepreneur, I enjoy the benefits of traveling for both business and for pleasure.
Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting a friend in Toronto, Canada for the first time. Although the trip was for fellowship, site seeing and visiting Niagara Falls, I was amazed to see the entrepreneurial spirit thriving in small businesses all around me.
I spoke with a young man who restored a portion of the “oldest distillery in the world” in order to open and operate his own current distillery.
I witnessed a thriving chocolatier business whose customers waited in line for a hot, spicy, shot of liquid dark chocolate. I even tried a shot! Yum!
I met a middle-aged restauranteur whose customers return night after night because of their incredible customer service and excellent food.
I talked with a woodcarver who personally hand-carved wooden bowls from the local Manitoba red maple tree. He marketed his products from a tent on the weekends in the marketplace. I collect wooden bowls made from local hardwood trees of the places I visit, so I purchased one of his bowls.
I tasted home-made, maple shortbread cookies from a local baker using the well-known Canadian ingredient of Maple Syrup. What a treat!
As different as each of these small businesses are in their products and services, I learned they all exhibit a commonality…..
- Entrepreneurs have a dream to fulfill.
- Entrepreneurs have challenges to overcome.
- Entrepreneurs have a story to share about their journey.
- Entrepreneurs expect to see potential in their business.
- Entrepreneurs are excitingly passionate about their product or service.
- Entrepreneurs take risks and leaps of faith.
- Entrepreneurs have a sparkle in their eye and a sense of pride when talking about their business.
Across every corner of our world the power of the entrepreneurial spirit is THRIVING!
