the tension of starting a business

It has been said that only seven percent of the work force is entrapenueral and I believe it.

The word entrapenuer:

# Innovator. One who recognizes opportunities and organizes resources to take advantage of the opportunity.

# Someone who is willing to assume the responsibility, risk and rewards of starting and operating a business.

# A French term for a person who undertakes and develops a new enterprise at some risk (or failure or loss).

Most of my life I have been looking for a word a phrase or position to place myself in, and until I started sharing my ideas with business people, I never found my place in this world.

Yes I believe there is a place...

My place is small, scary, dark and sometimes lonely. I live most days in a frantic pursuit of "greatness", not with out hope.

My hope does not lie in a great job, perfect opportunity or fame and fortion. I do not have the capacity to believe I can do it... What ever it is...

Here is what I can and will do. I will wake up with the belief that there is a God who is best represented through Christ Jesus, and I will do my best to become more like the type of Kingdom, Christ gave to the world.
