After attending an entrepreneurship presentation this past Saturday by Jason Torres, a friend and graduate from the College of Charleston, I was even more motivated and inspired to begin creating my own business. The lecture was part of the Professional Exchange, which was created and hosted by another friend and CofC grad, Natasha Lemon.
Of the many pointers and nuggets of information shared, I enjoyed learning if I had the P.A.S.S.I.O.N. to be a business owner. Jason mentioned to be successful, an entrepreneur must possess:
Posture – have a posture that shows you’re a leader
Attitude – have an attitude of confidence and professionalism
Smile – keep a smile on your face
Sacrifice – it takes some sacrifices to achieve your goals
Imagine the Possibilities – possibilities are endless when you think outside of the box
One Outcome Only – the only outcome is that you will be a success
No Excuses – no excuses will get in the way of becoming an entrepreneur
These attributes will be able to help me work toward creating a wheelchair-accessible taxi company. With my ability to drive a van with hand controls, I want to provide the same freedom of mobility to others with disabilities.
I’m glad I could be part of the Professional Exchange. Big thanks to Natasha, Jason, and the many other participants for promoting success. Find your P.A.S.S.I.O.N. and make things happen!
