Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

Start-Up Businesses…

I was reading Scott Kelby’s blog this morning regarding how and why he started his extraordinary stable of photography-related businesses, and was impressed with the thought that it all began because he absolutely loved photography and simply had to share his passion with anyone who might pay attention. It was contagious and attracted colleagues and followers.

That might not seem so remarkable until you begin to reflect upon how few businesses get started because of love, commitment conviction and passion – as opposed to simply the desire to make money.

I love to do business with companies and people who want to share their passion for great products and craftmanship rather than just take my money.

My guess is that the happiness quotient among genuinely committed entrepreneurs is incredibly higher than that of comparable high-stepping MBA’s who probably make a lot more money, but are miserable doing it.
