What happens when you realise your path is entrepreneurship rather than employment? Lindsay takes up the challenge and shares an account of her journey as it unfolds…
It’s all quiet, still
The last warm summer weeks wander by
The world at work is relaxed, out of office
Just the spam mail trickles in with a sigh.
I’ve had my own distance for a little while too
And as I come back to this quiet lot
I realise this suspension of disbelief
The vision that is so far fiction, has to stop.
Faith needs proof
Actions need reactions
Forecasts needs actuals
It’s all fake until it actually works.
Faced with a bit of that familiar ‘fear’ again
I can see it’s frankly getting boring
Knowing I’m not going to stop working on this
I ignore it – and it fades back to nothing.
Why do I fall for new ideas?
The ones with no awareness or demand
They’re so hard to get going, the risks are so high
It’s like falling in love with a bastard.
I read about a woman who wanted furniture just ‘so’
But found the prices too high
So, she sourced a foreign supplier to manufacture instead
They’d custom build each item her way.
She advertised in the Sunday papers
Got orders, people ready to pay
Built up her business over the past three years
And now she’s a success star today.
How nice and easy does that sound?
Why don’t I just sell what people want to buy?
Well they can damn well want what I’m selling right now
I just need a lucky break for this to fly.
