Ah, yes, Seth Godin
hit the nail on the head when he wrote about the impact of being an entrepreneur
. This is my passion. This is what I live for. THIS is why I am who I am:
"Innovation is something else entirely. Many entrepreneurs use an
innovation to make an impact, but the hard part, the part that we're
rewarded for, is engaging with the user, the audience, the market.
Bringing something to people who didn't think they wanted it, know about
it or initially welcome it, and make a difference.
One reason it's so difficult to teach entrepreneurship is that we're
not teaching tactics or skills. We're not teaching spreadsheets or
finance or even marketing. No, when we encourage entrepreneurship, we're
actually trying to get people to the place where they care enough and
where they are confident enough to stand up and try to make things
Don't tell me what you invented. Tell me about who you changed."
