As an entrepreneur, the hardest thing to be is patient.
One of my favorite bands the Doors sum it up in “When the Music’s Over” with the famous quote:
“We Want the World and We Want it Now”
This one statement is all we think about and what drives us, but with every overnight success there are hundreds of companies we never heard of until year 5, 10, or more. This is actually more often the fact that not.
I was reminded of the need for patience and passion to create something great this last week as I made a new, incredibly amazing friend, Linden Wolbert. Linden is one of two real live professional mermaids in the world. She has had ups and downs and left a successful career to start her company Mermaids in Motion and pursue her passion for the sea and helping kids.
It hasn’t been easy, and as we know as entrepreneurs, you have to love what you are doing to keep going many times. Well as a spark of inspiration for all of us, she has been recognized and rewarded for her hard work and passion this evening on ABC 20/20′s Super Humans.
Just watch the video and you will be inspired. This is the recognition we all shoot for and what drives us to get up each day and keep going!
Congrats Linden and keep swimming. Your “Shell Phone” as you love to call it is going to blow up
