I define an entrepreneur as someone who designs the future and brings it closer to the present. I didn’t come up with that line over night, it took a while for concept to evolve and crystallize.
I’ve been in business for 15 years, and operated as an independent consultant for two years prior to that. I’ve not known a day in almost 17 years when I’ve woken up and known where my next dollar would come from. It’s a high-risk business, consulting. You can be up one day, and down the next. One year your field is in fashion, and the next it’s out of fashion. It keeps me on my toes and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
