Poem: The Wise Entrepreneur

In the past I wanted to start a company just to start a company. To give myself meaning.

To make myself proud of I.
I didn't care if it was a great idea, really; and just rushed into it head first.
I just wanted to BUILD SOMETHING.
I just wanted to PROOVE SOMETHING.
To Who? -- To Myself and The World.
Then it became about proving those who saw me fail, wrong.
I Just wanted them to see that I was indeed great.
I needed validation.
This was the rookie.
The rookie entrepreneur.
My next venture will be done smart.
I will be selective.
I will not loose my mind over it.
And I will not allow it to define who I am, but merely be a component of the balance that I strive to achieve.
