Sometimes it’s hard to see those red flags.
🕳Especially when your bank account is in the red.
👀Your eyes are red from not sleeping.
👛You’re eating a lot of Red #40 because Pop-Tarts can be bought from vending machines with spare change.
I started my first business in the middle of a recession.
I was very angry that the world (America) had decided to stop its glorious rotation around Me (the center of all things).
I was very angry that the internet bubble and budget surplus that seemed endlessly expansive would burst and shrivel up before I got a chance to...do anything.
I was seeing red, as they say, and therefore I missed a lot—and I mean A LOT— of red flags when it came to working with clients, vendors, partners, and my own proclivities for subtle self-destruction (see: Pop-Tarts above).
I was operating, planning, and working from —------> scarcity.
S C A R C I T Y.
The word is literally scar + city.
And I have a well worn map to this place and maybe even an honorary title of city planner!
Bad decisions come from scarcity.
Bad decisions often lead to understanding, knowledge, capacity.
Dare I say, mistakes are the masonry of mastery?
Too far. OK.
But I’m planting my red flag on this hill.
Scarcity will always be a place you can find yourself in.
So why not embrace some bad decisions.
You never know what you will be able to build afterwards.
