First Day as an Entrepreneur
Today was one of the most exciting days of my life thus far! I can proudly say that I am a full-time entrepreneur with my business, The Corporate Pimp!
When I woke up this morning, there was no need for me to rush and get ready to commute 50 minutes to a job that provides little to no fulfillment in my life. Instead, I took my time getting dressed and walked to my business office with my head held high and with confidence that I will succeed as an entrepreneur!
The first thing I tackled and accomplished today was creating my schedule and plan for the day. I completed this task so I can stay focused on getting the necessary work done in a timely manner. Once I got in the groove of things, I was on a roll and couldn't be stopped!
I surprised myself at 12 noon when I finished one of the most daunting tasks that an entrepreneur faces: Making cold calls. Believe it or not, I had so much fun making calls and connecting with strangers that I wish I had more time to do just that! When you're doing what you love, those daunting tasks don't seem so daunting anymore; mainly because you realize and know that you have to start somewhere. You might as well have fun doing every role that your business needs to survive before you hand it off to someone else to complete!
After sending follow-up emails, quotes and editing digital content for The Corporate Pimp Community, I attended a Meetup networking group called the Business Network Connection. I'm so glad that I attended because I connected with key individuals who can potentially help me succeed in sales for my business!
Now that the day is over, I can relax, drink a glass of wine and prepare for my next day as a full-time entrepreneur!
