Gardening & Entrepreneurship
When we moved from Chicago to Waco in the summer of 2020, I left all my plants with a friend. Unfortunately, we ran out of room to safely transport them – being a plant lover, this was especially hard. Some I’d had for ten years or so.
But, I had to let them go – I know my friend loves them.
This is the new kitchen garden, where we’ve got basil, sage, rosemary, chives, and peppermint, all in various stages.
My little garden reminds me a lot of entrepreneurship. If you want a successful business (garden), you have to create offerings (plant the seeds) and market them to the right people (love upon them with the right amount of light, water, and nutrients). And then wait and watch them grow. (Allow the magic to happen)
Not every offer, project, or idea we have will form into something people buy. No matter how much we try or whose special formula we use. This doesn’t mean we will never be successful; it just means not with those offerings (seeds) at this particular time.
If having a business is something that you feel called to do, then don’t give up when your business (garden) isn’t the way you want it.
Study what others have done.
Get help. Be patient with yourself. Get more help if needed.
Tweak things, market more strategically, and keep modifying your offerings until you get them to look how you want them to. Most of all, keep doing that special thing your soul has called you to do. 💕
