S1: The Entrepreneur
Nothing is impossible. The impossible just takes a bit longer.
For me, “quick” is synonymous with “good” and “right”. I launch, test, and iterate at speed. I only let an idea go when all options have been exhausted, and I exhaust them fast! I don’t understand how people can work on something for years without seeing valid proof that their venture is worth pursuing.
My biggest fear when I was a child was to end up working 9-5 on something I’m not passionate about. When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I’d answer - “I will have my own business. Everyone will know my name.” I always knew I’d be an entrepreneur.
Don’t get me wrong - I’m not an egomaniac. In fact, I don’t give a s**t what other people think about me. I don’t need a corner office or a huge team to feel successful. I have tried to be the CEO and COO of my businesses for as long as it’s possible. My motivation comes from within, and I’m insanely dedicated to my ventures. My brain is constantly buzzing with ideas, and I can’t contain myself when I believe in the potential of something or someone.
Sometimes I feel like other people don’t realise how quickly the world is moving and things are changing. I don’t wait for the right opportunities, I create them. The time is always “right” for something. They say “where there's a will there's a way”. I’ve got the will and I always find a way. When will I stop? I’ll have enough time in my grave.
