One of the most challenging yet rewarding things in this world is to embark on the journey entrepreneurship. Whether is the countless hours of hard work in the early going or facing the uncertainty of actually finding success the path of a business owner is daunting. Oftentimes a person will discover very quickly if they’re cut out to be an Entrepreneur or not. For those bold or maybe it’s foolish enough to stay the course there’s quite a long road ahead. The thing is most of these people have one key thing in common: a passion for what they do, these individuals have found their why, know their what and are figuring out their how. They are too stubborn to accept no, and too invested to accept failure. These people are the innovators and forward thinkers of our society, the ones who see past what is and only what can be. We have long celebrated their monumental achievements and often inspired to be like them. Indeed this is what we like to imagine Entrepreneurs to be, the rags to riches story or the person who turned tragedy into triumph… What about the person who left a successful career to pursue their passion to modest success? What about the person that dropped out of law school because they wanted to paint? More often than not we deem those who choose the creative path less valuable and in turn they have to go out of their way to prove their worth. Creatives can be considered the most pure of the entrepreneurial universe, simply because they love what they do so much that they’ll sacrifice financial gain for personal fulfillment. In this information technology driven age slowly we’ve seen the artists fade, schools cut funding, and individuals stop supporting. But we need our creatives, now more than we ever have! Creatives bring communities together, and help drive new ideas to bring about solutions to age old problems. It is up to all of us to give them the support so desperately needed to not only survive but to thrive as business owners. It could be the painter at the local coffee shop, the musician on the street corner, the kid who dreams of being a dancer one day, or the person who left corporate america because they wanted to travel the world with a camera and share their experiences with the rest of us. Each and every one of them is priceless and it is up to us to remember that creative entrepreneurs have value.
