Tonight I met with the people who just finished the entrepreneurs’ program I’ve been running. Hearing about how much they valued it and the impact it had on them was incredibly heartwarming. Reliving the graduation night and listening to their experiences, the observations of a previous program participant quickly reconnected me to my own joy from the night. Less than an hour earlier I’d started to feel tired, but talking about the energy in the room and feeling the love from all of them at the graduation brought my energy right back.
I love that our brains don’t know the difference between thinking of something and experiencing it. In this case, it was a really good thing!
One of the participants referred to our group as like ‘family’. That meant a lot to me. A whole new take on ‘chosen’ family. Many of them talked about how their friends and family just don’t get what they’re on about. Many entrepreneurs experience this. You have to be a bit crazy and super driven to pursue a business idea. Most people don’t understand this, what keeps people following their dreams. Other entrepreneurs do. It’s nice to be with them.
