While I was in the hospital welcoming my second son into the world a few weeks back, Gary Vaynerchuk posted this video to his LinkedIn page. Not only was it fitting at the time for me, but it put my business in an entirely new light.
The video is called, “Treat Your Business Like Your Second Child”. At first it might not make too much sense but as you watch the video (or read the article), I couldn’t have put it better myself.
“Nothing is perfect. Nothing in business is black and white. All the magic is in the grey. Have patience. Nothing is the worst thing that ever happened, and nothing is the best thing that ever happened.”
We, as business owners, need to stop micromanaging every little decision and stop trying to change the things that we can’t change. Too many people focus on how good it was, or how bad it is right now without stopping to think about what we can change about the situation. Live for now.
“So relax. Grab a coffee. Take a shot of vodka. It’s all going to be ok. Treat your business like a second child.”
