NEW ENTREPRENEUR LESSON OF THE DAY: Don’t forget that sometimes it’s ok to be lost.
A friend recently stopped by Skimm HQ and noticed one of our bookshelves. Through the mix of some Twilight and political books (the perfect match), our friend noticed a few other gems. Study books for the LSAT, the GRE, the GMAT. And we remembered—just a year ago, these were all on our radar. Why? Because we were so lost.
We knew we wanted more for our careers and that we needed to branch out into something new, we just really had no idea how to get there and what would look like. Insert many a school informational session, study session for multiple tests, and your run of the mill meltdowns.
Now that we are Skimm’ing we really can’t imagine doing anything else but that doesn’t mean the ‘lost’ feeling goes away. There are business decisions to make, hires to choose from, strategies to think out, and sometimes we have those moments of ‘WTF AM I DOING???”
Our bookshelf is a good reminder that it’s ok to be a little confused, because if you do your homework (literally in this case), ask a lot of questions, and close your eyes and take a jump, you’ll find some semblance of direction. Or just read Twilight.
