We have all heard of the importance of having passion in life and in all that you do. As a child growing up on the west side of Birmingham, AL, I learned the need of passion while playing pickup basketball games in my back yard with neighborhood boys. Regardless of how ineffective many were at actually draining a basket, the ones who always had the basketball displayed a level of passion when going after the ball. I learned that while even though possessed a decent three point shot, I rarely was just given the ball. It was there in my back yard that learned the necessaity of pocessing passion.
As I became a young adult, I saw this same passion on display as seemingly droves of people clamoured to climb the corporate ladder of what was deemed success. I observed that even though everyone had the same level of education for the most poart, what separated individuals and set individuals apart was their level of individual passion.
As an entrepreneur I’ve learned that passion is everything. Passion for something that vital to the success of any entrepreneur, small business owner, or startup.
