Entrepreneurs: It’s a War Out There!

We are warriors because we’re in a war.

Even though I’ve had people laugh at the idea and tell me it’s too much, I stand by my view of the 8pm Warrior world.

I know self employed warriors suffering from serious health conditions because they have no health insurance.  Some are losing their homes to foreclosure.   Others have lost their families, their friends, or the business they spent their whole life building.

Some have died.

All were chasing their dreams and holding on to their passion for a better world, a better life. It’s in their blood.  It’s what they do.

For those still limping along in this economy while wondering, praying, hoping, and dreaming…I get it.

It’s a war out there.

I salute you.

Have a great night.

  1. And this war is raging on two fronts: First as all entrepreneurs understand you have to fight against the dreamstealers and naysayers who tell you it can’t be done. And over the last couple years, it seems that our local and federal governments have decided to make it as toxic and difficult as possible for someone to own a business these days.

    But to quote Bon Jovi “You better stand tall when they’re calling you out, don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down…” (I actually talk about this in some length in a post on my blog).


    1. Hi James, first of all, thanks for the comment. You make a great point about having to fight battles on more than one side. Certainly the government is one to go along with competitors, customers, ourselves, and even mother-in-laws.

      Second, your blog post was great too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I know that the long nights I put in are taking a toll on me, along with the stress and anxiety that goes with starting a company. I pray that this all works out- thanks for the feedback!

  3. I’m also with Betsy and wish I had done this years ago. Whilst I’m stressing about all the things inherent in starting a company, I know, in my heart it’s the right thing for me, right now. Thanks for thinking of all us Aaron.

    1. You’re welcome Sherree and thanks for sharing. Starting a venture can be VERY stressful, but it can also be very very fulfilling. We’ve got to stick together. :-)

  4. In a manner of speaking, it is better to die a free person than live as a slave.

    Too often, working for others is to submit oneself to certain exploitation. If one increases the profit of the organization by 10 percent, there is no expectation that value-added contribution of an employee should be compensated – especially for the rank and file.

    On the other hand, the employer may argue that should the company fail to make a profit, the employee still expects their full salary and the employer will pay it.


  5. Coming from someone who is just about to jump into this world- I love this post. It is not an easy lifestyle, but when I think of the alternative I wouldn’t want it any other way.
