About Business Life Stories
Business Life Stories is about Entrepreneurs, Startups, Small-Businesses, Solo-Practitioners, Investors, and Philanthropists… “Why I Love What I Do” is a center-piece in BusinessLifeStories.com.
Starting with this question has been fun. When we ask people to say a few words on “Why they love what they do”, there is a range of answers. “Who said I love what I do?” is a common one. But then in bits and pieces, and sometimes in full theater, people share their different stories.
The stories we hear are just a glimpse into that person’s life. They usually wind up answering with a bit of who they are, what their goals are, and their outlook on the future. In between the lines of the story are the conditions by which we all make choices, professionally and personally.
The blurring of business and personal life is often seen as a negative, a lack of boundaries. For small business owners and entrepreneurs, fitting in to the corporate identity of “The Firm”, is one less thing to think about. But, “how will we be seen” by partners, clients, and potential clients is still a worthwhile question to ask. Information about what drives us; the road we’ve taken to get here; and where we see the future can be endearing or a turn-off. That’s a gamble we all take now online.
Loving what you do is a privilege. Story telling is all around us. Everyone has a story.
