Writing is a ladder

Writing is a ladder out of Chaos.

My Tyrannosaurus writing has found me a path out of chaos. Chaos amidst which I found myself while trying to develop my business. Then I did not know that business world is sharks’ empire. I put it in writing in my Shark Tale.

Writing must be something of an Iron Tale, must be tough and sincere to the core of human perception of pain as valor. I remain the grumpy T-Rex who started writing out of pain, not necessarily because of a broken world. But now and then with words we glue shards and pieces and put them together with blood. As we sometimes taste blood, ours or others’.

“Of all writings I love only that which is written with blood. Write with blood: and you will discover that blood is spirit.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Be the one who cares, make words so disruptive that they create new worlds, hopes and dreams. Even if we are unhappy dinosaurs and find shelter in an Iron Tale or ruminate about feeling too much, whilst declaring colorless apparel, we should take power and strength from our stories. “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.”- Joan Didion

Writing is a ladder to the sky in your mouth when you are in love. 

Pay toll to love in words. If I sing songs to the blooming trees, they remain in bloom. My words protect them from smothering summers and mellow autumns. The “herbivore” writing is sweet and protective. Still they are disruptive words that create ladders and unite…people and their stories.

“Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart, one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.” – Marvin J. Ashton

Get away with entrepreneurship

What is entrepreneurship?
An idea packaged into an alluring story heralding a product designed as the solution for a problem.
How do you start?
Surmise your passions to find a pattern for your product and your business model. Decipher your passions and find your skills. Build on your product and create the words for an enchanting package. Start your enterprise as if you start a new love story. This would be your another love and type of loving because you put more than just time in your idea.

Brain fueling for your idea is always hard. All the more you should make use of your best. Your skills. Your skills will always help you in the direst of times. One should never start finding new ones as time is limited. In everything, your skills will make do.

You are likely to fail in your idea. Predictions break apart when you transfer them from paper to practice. Nothing seems to be the same. On this rugged path, you wish you had struck gold. Literally. You do business with people that assess you, judge you, jeer you, appreciate you…Everybody wants nothing but the best. And they often offer nothing in return.

No matter what you sell or do, do it right and well. Even if you don’t sell gold, leave an impression and a mark. Get the job done. If possible, leave a trail of delight that later will lead them back to you. And whatever you do, ask a simple question: Can I get away with it? Can I get away with my story/presentation/performance? We are all non/artists until we propose ourselves to put our passions into practice and become entrepreneurs.
“Art is what you can get away with.”
Andy Warhol

Do business in Equilibrium

As business owner always imagine you are based in Equilibrium.
This film is a fine piece of art about an utopian society governed by the banning of emotions and consequently, the banning of every form of art.
To sum up in a few gentle words, your product appeals to the feelings and emotions of your consumers but your business dealings don’t.

When dealing with customers you have no feelings. Because you will get a lot of rejection, and this might shred your courage into so tiny bits that you will not be able to recognize yourself. Then you start doubting the magic problem-solving power of your product. Don’t. It is still you and your product is wonderful.

Don’t care what people say and think about you. Care if they don’t respect you and your work. And care if they don’t respect your time.

Trust your intuition. If you have the feeling that you are wasting time with a (non)client, you are probably right, so stop the swapping of emails as this leads nowhither. Your time is as precious as any other assets in your company.

Businesses are not about passions. Yes, your product is your passion, but selling it (with a profit) involves cold calculations.

Don’t overthink. There are 2 types of clients, people who want to do business with you and people who don’t. The challenge is to detect the latest category (ASAP) and distance from them.

To be continued.
