Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #233

Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

Being a quitter surely does not lead to success, so choose your career wisely. My grandfather owned a small farm in North Carolina, where he fed corn to chickens and other farm animals. When I visited, I shelled the corn using a hand-operated device. One time, after about half an hour, I said I was tired. My grandfather replied, “The animals never get tired of eating; in fact, they will die if you quit.”

Later in life, I worked at a Fruit of the Loom plant and saw the women who worked all day long at machines that sewed ladies’ stockings. I decided on that day that I didn’t want to spend my life doing repetitive work. Instead, I became an entrepreneur.

One great thing about having your own business is that things change all the time, sometimes in a minute. True entrepreneurs embrace the changes and think of them as business refinement opportunities. And if you even think about quitting, remember the corn-shelling story.
