Since the start of my company, I’ve crossed paths with many entrepreneurs. Most of my clients fall into that category. However, I’m also thinking of vendors, of folks I’ve met at events, of online community members, and of people I’ve run across in everyday life. It’s no surprise that regardless of their industry, entrepreneurs find each other. Perhaps it’s because we understand both the struggles and the satisfaction of running a business, but we also tend to help each other. When we meet someone with an entrepreneurial spirit, we offer our support, whether by sharing resources, giving advice, or purchasing each other’s products and services. When our paths cross, we often make each other stronger, sometimes by joining forces, other times by friendly competition. Nevertheless, I’m proud to be part of the group, and I’m grateful to those entrepreneurs who have played a role in my success. I hope I’ve been able to pay it forward and do the same for others.
