We searched “find your passion” and got 317 million results.
But we didn’t stop there – we searched “entrepreneur emotion” and only got 3 million results. Almost all the ones that were truly relevant were about the motivation behind starting a business.
We’ve just described the force that’s driving the two of us as we continue to grow BIGG Success.
There’s a lot of conversation about the emotional side of finding the right business. But there’s very little help when you really need it – once you’re neck deep in starting and running it.
[Mary-Lynn] BIGG Success is my first entrepreneurial endeavor. We’re a little over five years old now. And I have to tell you – I’ve ridden the entrepreneurial roller coaster.
[George] I’d been in business for years before I ever got up the nerve to talk about this. I asked my sister – who had also been a long-time business owner – about this emotional roller coaster ride. I said, “It seems like the highs are higher, the lows are lower, and there never seems to be any middle ground.” She said, “You know, I’ve never thought about it before but you’re right.”
“I feel so isolated”
So we’ve spent the last few years talking to business owners and entrepreneurs about this phenomenon. Most of them had their own stories to tell about dealing with the emotional side of business. Sometimes we didn’t initiate the conversation.
For example, one startup entrepreneur was so down. You could see it instantly in his body language. He was slouched over. He moved slowly. Frankly, he looked terrible.
He had missed his self-imposed milestones. He was working daylight to dark and beyond. He was exhausted – physically, mentally and emotionally.
As you might imagine, he was ready to quit.
“I just feel so isolated,” he said.
We listened to him. We assured him that we knew how he felt because we’d lived though it ourselves.
Then with a combination of encouragement and business advice, we helped him feel better and get more focused.
We helped him find his next step instead of feeling overwhelmed by all the steps he had to take. We helped him see that he could take that next step.
Now his business is up and running. He has a spring in his step. He’s a new man.
To this day, he still thanks us for that conversation.
Announcing BIGG Success Entreprenurturing™
Here at BIGG Success, we serve the whole entrepreneur – both the logical and emotional sides, the mind and the spirit.
They both go hand-in-hand – whether you’re an entrepreneur in the traditional sense, you want to become one or you’re entrepreneurial in your career.
Entrepreneuring with the power of nurturing
We’re here to get you past the fears and frustrations that are an inevitable part of a BIGG goal-getter’s life.
There aren’t a lot of people who you can talk with honestly about these things. They can’t relate. They don’t know what it’s like to run your own business or strive for BIGG goals.
In short, they don’t understand you. You want to live life on your own terms and now you have a place to turn.
You can talk with people who are going through the same experiences now or who have experienced the same things in the past.
That’s entreprenurturing™. It’s entrepreneuring with the power of nurturing.
It’s about sharing, growing and prospering together. So you make better decisions. You feel more confident. You have more clarity. You don’t give up. You take the next step.
