As entrepreneurs, we are bombarded by media stories that set high standards of success. Companies raising truckloads of money, founders growing in stature and recognition, valuations, and exits. Though we must appreciate their achievements; we don’t need to unreasonably set our success or failure to them. It’s our own journey.
If any of us are spending time doing things that make us happy – then, damn, that’s worth celebrating. If we have been able to tackle our fears and put out anything we have created – it’s worth celebrating. If we have jumped our secure existence to chase a dream – it’s worth celebrating. If we are making daily progress. It’s worth celebrating. If we are ( in these challenging times… ) digging our heels and pivoting new models. Then, kudos!
