One of the greatest lesson I have learned through the readings and videos and experiences of this week is that there is so much more to entrepreneurship than money. When money is your focus, you are likely to get it, but just as likely to lose a part of yourself to it, a part that my or may not come back.
Instead, entrepreneurship is a service. It is a means by which I have personally been able to see people look at the problems that we face as a society or even as the human race, and do their best to improve the lives of as many possible. It is so much more than having a job. It deals in the currency of purpose and passion. It allows those dedicated to its cause to do things that they believed to be outside their capacity.
I wonder what I have to offer up to the world. One of the many things that I've kicked around in my head, something that I'm passionate about, it recreation. Everyone has to work. Its almost a certainty in life. Often the stresses of that work can be attempted to be dulled by things that are detrimental to future success, such as alcohol, drugs, pornography, promiscuousness, the selfish use of time, unplugging from those around us. My dream it to create a camp for families, where recreation can be a positive, energizing, family building time. If I could dedicate my time, effort, and means to such a cause (while being able to provide for the needs of my family), I would sign up in an instant to dedicate my life. That is more important than all the money in the world. Such an endeavor would pay me handsomely in a purpose and passion, and I intend to be blessed as a set out on such a cause.
