Welcome to my blog. It always amazes me how many irons a guy can get in the fire at one time, I hope to kind of pull them all together on this site and share them with those who are interested. I have a passion or spirit or drive which I find hard to put into words. In its most recognizable form it manifests itself as an entrepreneurial spirit. I recently read an article by Dr. Jeff Cornwall that said it comes from our culture, since our founding, our culture was fostered by our freedoms. I think that it is something deeper than that and that those of us that have this flame have come together and shaped our culture. For me that is a primary part of the experience, taking what is around me and shaping it, very similar to an artist, but with the mediums of people, projects and opportunities.
I do believe we need to guard and foster these freedoms that have defined our culture. We are indeed seeing a fundamental shift from a spirit of entrepreneurship and self-reliance to a spirit of entitlement. As for me, this is not acceptable; my entrepreneurial spirit is a drive deep in my core values. My hope is that there are many more with this entrepreneurial spirit that seek the rewards that come from risk-taking and world shaping.
