Every once in a while, someone does something simple that totally brightens another person’s day. In this case, a Seneca College student took the time to write me a lovely thank you note for the presentation I gave to her final year Entrepreneurial class last month. I won’t reiterate the entire letter but the part that brought the biggest smile to my face was when she wrote: As a student in Entrepreneurship & Small Business and planning on starting my own business, I appreciated when you said, “It’s the hardest thing you do but the most rewarding” and “we all make mistakes”. This encourages me that I made the right decision to own my own business. I was also reassured to know that even business owners make mistakes. I remember what it was like as an undergraduate student at university and the tough time I had deciding what I wanted to do when I graduated. If I am able to provide students with some inspiration and encouragement then I feel really good about my contribution. Besides, fostering entrepreneurship is what our country desperately needs. With an uncertain economic future and fewer full time steady jobs available, we need more young people to build their own small businesses. Apparently small businesses are the driving force of our economy for the foreseeable future. It makes me incredibly proud to know I’m a part of that trend through my business, Tail Wags Helmet Covers. What has someone else done lately that made your day?
