My Love Letter to Entrepreneurs

This is an open love letter to all of the makers, doers, and builders.

An homage to the entrepreneurs, the change agents, and the leaders.

A salute to those that who say “yes”, who move past the fear, and get up again after being knocked down.

The problems you are worthy to solve are worthy of your efforts.

This I promise you.

Even if it doesn’t always feel that way – particularly when it doesn’t feel that way – your work matters.

Because it isn’t just a business that you are building or a mural that you are are painting or a population that you are serving. You are saying “yes” to your Must. You are protecting, sheltering and loving your idea. You are living in “I love myself.”

I am in awe of you.

I am in awe of you, even when it’s messy. When it’s unclear. When it seems like nothing is working. When you want to say “fuck it” and burn it all down.

I am in awe of you.

I am in awe of you when you win that victory. When you land that deal. When that hard case cracks a smile. When the light is finally just right for that shot.

I am in awe of you.

Because…

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

You are daring greatly. You are saying “yes” to your Must. You are protecting, sheltering and loving your idea. You are living in “I love myself.”

The world will be changed by the makers, doers, and builders. And those someones are you.

It is my great honor to know you. It is my great privilege to gladiate alongside you. And it is my great blessing to be continuously inspired by you.
