Every year around this time, I secretly get a little depressed that I live in New England.
It’s way too cold here.
The winters are far too fierce.
Clearing your walkway under threat of city ordinances and additional fees can be enough to make even the soundest of us cry out in despair.
And, the incessant barrage of snowstorms is enough to make even those with the thickest of beards wince, if just by a tiny bit.
(As I write this, I’m watching as snow gently accumulates outside of my home. What a cruel April Fools’ joke this is).
However, there is one thing that makes even the coldest of winters worth enduring.
That one thing, is the always welcomed embrace of Spring.
It always reminds me of the great lessons that Spring can teach all entrepreneurs.
Being an entrepreneur, especially these days, has ups and downs.
Sometimes, you’ll endure the coldest of long winters, with no end in sight.
However, just around the corner, you might have something truly remarkable waiting to peek at you, right in the eyes.
Which is why, New England isn’t so bad afterall.
Because, if it weren’t for the tumultuous and brutal winter, would any of us truly appreciate the Spring?
Thanks for reading and deciphering my cryptic metaphor of a blog.
As always, it’s a humbling honor.
Cordially, and humbly yours…
