As my business progresses, thoughts have been dancing around in my head as to my motivations in starting a business. I thought I would talk about these and tie this into a corporation and CEO that I really admire.
My motivations, firstly, surround having passion in what I do for a living. I don't want to be complacent about life. I want to keep my fire burnin'!
The third motivation is obvious, being your own boss. Yeah, it's nice to have some flexibility in your work schedule. Of course, you cater to your customers and there is that, but at least you are catering to them for something you are passionate about!
Last but not least, a huge factor for me in desiring to earn more money and doing what I am passsionate about is simply to contribute more. I have had ideas whirling in my head for years about what I would like to do with significant contributions and programs I could create to make change in the community (hello? am I sounding like Obama right now? We want change!).
The more that I see corporations and companies making a difference like this, the more that it drives me to try and be accomplished in my business so I can also have my turn at contributing. One company, that inspires me a lot and contributes directly to the organization that I work at, is Nash Finch.
