I started this blog inspired by a business concept that seemed to fit what I was aiming for in my family.
The more I read leadership blogs and observe the entrepreneurial world, the more parallels I see to what I am doing as the manager of my home.
Look at this definition from Wikipedia (sorry I have no better source – Christmas doesn’t leave much time for writing):
“Theorists Frank Knight and Peter Drucker defined entrepreneurship in terms of risk-taking.
The entrepreneur is willing to put his or her career and financial security on the line and take risks in the name of an idea, spending time as well as capital on an uncertain venture.”
Did you put your career and financial security on the line, investing time and money on the uncertain venture of raising a family?
I don’t mean any disrespect to entrepreneurs in the traditional sense. I’m paying them a compliment when their work informs and inspires my work.
I’m not parenting by the books. I’m forging my own path like an entrepreneur, taking major risks with the potential for big payoffs.
I’m guessing you parent like an entrepreneur, or you wouldn’t be reading this blog.
Entrepreneurs don’t just talk about making money, they talk about living a designed life and maximizing their social impact.
I see my life the same way, only it’s easier for me to double my income every year. 😉
What’s your take?
