Not Believing in Entrepreneurs is Tantamount to High Treason
Our nation faces many threats: From wild fires, oil spills, the threat of nuclear war, to terrorism and industrial espionage. But there is one silent group of war mongers who isn’t given enough credit for the damage they cause within our own borders, and it’s time to take them down. Take aim at the NON-BELIEVER!
It’s tragically ironic that our very way of life was founded by some of the bravest entreprenuers the world has ever seen. Virtually every convenience we enjoy, from democracy to the iPhone, started as a thought in an entrepreneur’s mind. In fact, it is not being over dramatic to suggest that our very survival as humans on this earth is in the hands of Entreprenuers. It’s this special elite task force who are currently inventing new ways to find world peace (via increased communication technology that leads to understanding and tolerance of the world’s cultures), improve our health (bio-tech technologies to stop the worlds sicknesses and, hopefully, reverse my baldness) and clean our environment (clean technologies that will save us from ourselves).
Don’t get me wrong. Not all ideas are good ones, but no single person is EVER capable of making that judgement on their own. Only the benefactors of that idea can make that call. I assert that if you open your mouth and tell someone that you don’t like their idea, you are committing nothing less than High Treason – you’re declaring war on your own country.
The good news is that these people are easy to identify. They walk among us. When you pitch your idea to them, they usually respond with “You’ll never pull that off,” or “Forget it, you’re totally underestimating how hard that is.” They work hard to persuade you to stop innovating, give up, stop taking risks, and just stop thinking about how to make a better world all together. Just the other day, someone told me that the job ahead of me is too big to be accomplished and that I was being naive. I was shaken up a bit, because I couldn’t imagine anyone would want to knock the idea down even though they had nothing to gain by doing so. I took some time to think about it, and realized that yes, my idea was audacious, and for me to accomplish it, I will have to be tenacious. – In other words, I would have to be an Entrepreneur.
What was the idea? To make Vancouver the absolute best place to start an Internet company in the world. Do you believe?
