Before the productivity vacuum that is December (for all good reasons of course – celebration, family, rest, reflection etc.), this seems like the perfect time to devote to complacency-shaking, butt-kicking inspiration and knowledge, with regards to entrepreneurship.
When I use the term "entrepreneurship", I refer to all entrepreneurial people – whether they are employed by somebody else, cultivating a side hustle or running their fully-fledged own thing. So, if you're reading this blog, I'm pretty sure that includes you.
In my own experience as an entrepreneur, I've found great encouragement from learning about other people's journeys, be that through biographies of well-known successes, via interviews with rising stars or through conversations with people, in real life.
One of the things I'll be doing this month is drawing your attention to some of these stories and hopefully they will fan some fires for you too.
I'll also be sharing some of my own learning and things that have helped me on endeavours so far. I've now been officially self-employed for 4 years and 4 months and I can't imagine what circumstances could convince me to ever go back. Never say never, they say. To which I respond by making sure that I educate myself, experiment, reflect, adjust and diversify, in order to create a sustainable situation of freedom, flexibility and abundance.
