YOU CAN'T BUILD AN EMPIRE WITHOUT FIRST GOING THROUGH THE CONSTRUCTION
I came across this phrase whilst sitting down to read one of my favourite blogs by Ash Ambirge of the Middle Finger Project. If you haven’t read her stuff then I highly recommend that you do, she’s awesome!
In her latest offering she talks about the various (and many) stages of building a business and enjoying the process, making each and every step as valuable as it can be even when its just the very beginning. Taking pride in the baby steps you’re achieving along the way.
To quote Ash ’Surely, when they built the Empire State Building, no one was embarrassed that it WASN’T JUST A BUILDING, ALREADY. Instead, they documented the entire construction process, excited to have the privilege to work on such a monumental new project’ Your business is no different. Be PROUD to work on something so beautiful and precious, its yours and its perfect. It is already good enough.
The work may be hard and occasionally enough for you to throw the laptop shut declaring your profound LOVE of the nun's simple life but ultimately putting in the time and appreciation at the start will lead to your very own Empire State building - Enjoy it!
