The year was 1954, and a 25-year-old named Martin Luther King Jr radically reshaped the culture of America.
Sixty-one years later, I also have a dream. One that would cause a change in the culture of our businesses. One that would lead more young people to embrace an entrepreneurial spirit.
King spoke out about his belief. He was up against significant challenges, such as limiting beliefs, available tools and resources, and our personal ability to enact change. Sixty-one years later, we have made strides towards racial equality and treatment.
For young entrepreneurs, I encourage you to to break through limiting beliefs, understand that you have the tools to reach your goals, and you have the personal ability to change the culture around you.
- You have permission to try something new
- You have permission to explore, research, and study
- You have permission to blaze a new path
- You have permission to fail
- You have permission to challenge status quo
- You have permission to accept diversity
- You have permission to speak out
- You have permission to lead
- You have permission to dream
I challenge you, dream big. Don’t accept “no”. Always be thinking.
Reshape the cultural bounds in your community.
