I can because I want to,
I want to because you said I couldn’t.”
At the time, I had been given several directives on how to run the business I just couldn't support, especially when they involved how people were treated. So, I strategized for a few days and knew it was time to leave and head out on my own. It wasn't easy, especially when a few friends and family members told me flat out I was nuts.
It's a short post this morning, but a solid point as we all head into a new year. Believe in yourself. While running a business is often about compromise and patience, if you find you need to compromise your most sincere beliefs, then take some time to think things through. Maybe it's time for a new game plan or just a simple adjustment in the path you're chosen.
Just remember, nothing is ever cast in stone. As you grow as an artist and a business owner you're going to come regularly to crossroads and opportunities to change your path. Surround yourself with positive people and above all, "to thine own self be true."
