Failure just means things will take a little longer

Disney Creativity Speaker
Failure and Walt Disney we’re companions for many years.

 

Failure just means things will take a little longer.

 

Keeping a small business running is one thing.

Growing it is entirely different.

The stakes are higher.

There are more mouths (employees) to feed.

All costs grow exponentially.

Hiring, training, insurance, real estate, equipment, leadership, payroll, legal, marketing, and so on.

Same thing happens with our health.

The healthier we get, the more effort required.

When you go from eating one healthy meal a week to 21.

When you go from a 10-minute evening walk three times a week to running (30 minutes per day) five days a week and going to the gym three days a week for an hour each visit.

When you go from never stretching to stretching 15-minutes a day, five days a week.

And so on.

Dear Son

From a mistake, an amazing opportunity

Live like you mean it
Known each other since 1977, freshman year at West Chester State College (now WCU). Glacier National Park, Summer 2016 (Lake Josephine).

 

From a mistake, an amazing opportunity; will get to that in a minute.

Booked last week’s trip to Glacier National Park as a last resort for a Summer trip because it was the only available reservation out of all the Glacier National Park Lodges – apparently, booking four months in advance isn’t even close to being enough. In a panic, i took the last week of August (the only thing available for the entire Summer).

i knew it would be a bad idea to take our son out of school for a week on the third week of the new school year.

Desperate, i booked the only option.

Each week i went back to the Glacier National Park reservations site and a month later, a miracle – an opening for an entire week at Rising Sun the first week of August (and no school conflict)..

Kept the August reservations – there were two. Four nights at Rising Sun, two nights at Apgar.

Later, a college buddy accepted the invite to travel that final August week.

Inspired for reasons other than intended

Inspired for reasons other than intended, in this brief video from Road ID CEO Edward Wimmer.

What happens when a runner, entrepreneur, and Road ID customer collide while watching an informational video like this?

 

 

Forget about the product, what i focused on was the business and marketing side of this. The side most would never notice.

Watch it again and observe the business owner’s creativity, originality, fun, and simplicity.

Dear Son

He doesn’t understand entrepreneurship yet

Disney Leadership Conference Speaker
Near the end of yesterday’s three-miler.

 

He doesn’t understand entrepreneurship yet. As we relaxed in our Disneyland Hotel room yesterday afternoon, i explained how entrepreneurship allows you to do things on your own terms.

For example, travel and work can go hand in hand. And because of this, much of your travel becomes a business expense and revenue opportunity.

Explained it to him in more detail than here, and for now i just wait for it to sink in as he decides what he wants to do with his life.

Entrepreneurial discipline, like an Olympic athlete

Disney Keynote Customer Service Speaker
Sound check is night before or morning of.

 

Disney Keynote Customer Service Speaker
Comfort monitors are always welcome.

 

Disney Keynote Customer Service Speaker
This is the lunch seating. The banquet crew strikes and resets to theater style seating.

 

Entrepreneurial discipline.

It’s similar to Olympic athlete discipline.
