What does a leader look like? For me it’s an induvial that is admired and respect from many as well as loathed from others. Despite the reaction that is deciphered this great leader still carries on the orders that are needed to fulfill the objective on hand.
Inspired by the classic phrase “If you love what you do, you’ll never have to work another day in your life,” I’ve had an Entrepreneur mind-set for as long as I can remember. As a young child I began with my grandfather, Robert Alexander a shipwright of 60 years at Crowley & Company of Oakland. He was a driven man and had the spirit of entrepreneurship at the age of 16, this was something never taught (in my opinion) it was all he knew. Today on location at the 9th Ave. Terminal I honor him by wearing his Greek Fishman Hat that he worn on his visits to the San Francisco Estuary.
“Every ship needs a captain. The crew is important but the captain steers everything. You need to have a clear vision to lead.”
What we all need to realize we are all maturing entrepreneurs in one way or another, whether we own a small business, have grand plans for starting one or just enjoy daydreaming about the day when we will – creativity it’s a manifestation that will unfold for each and every one of us. While I’ve spent nearly a decade focusing on the choices to make outside of my work hours, my grandfather would say, “If you love what you do, don’t ever hesitate to seize the moment.” A true quote from a Captain, a Mentor. _____________________________
