12 Things Entrepreneurs Should Be Thankful For

 

A simple thanks to all the people that have made it possible for me to be an entrepreneur.  There are few more fulfilling things in life than finding one's calling.  And, for millions of entrepreneurs around the world, that's precisely what it is.


onstartups thank you

A special thanks to all the people that have joined existing startups and small businesses.  Joining an existing effort requires risk and a degree of selfnessness.  You are all entrepreneurs in my book for one simple reason:  You're crazy enough to join a merry band of misfits even though it makes absolutely no sense.  You're my kind of crazy.  Cheers.

12 Things Entrepreneurs Should Be Thankful For

1. Customers.

2. Getting to pick the exceptional people we work with.

3. An opportunity to add value, big or small, to people's lives.

4. Not having to ask permission to try something crazy.

5. The patience and understanding of our family and friends — especially when we likely don't deserve it.

6. Receiving payment for value delivered. There's no feeling like it.  

7. The joy of seeing a sliver of light after some dark, dark, days.

8. The freedom to change what's not working. It's sometimes painful, but at least it's possible.

9. Not having to rationalize to your family and friends why you took that Wall Street investment banking job.

10. Day 2,743, when the world celebrates your “overnight success”

11. The pleasure of helping team members create memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.  Most of them good.

12. The chance to try. To fail. To try again and flail around. Then, with some luck, to flourish.

Your turn.  What do you think entrepreneurs should be thankful for?

Awesome list, Dharmesh. Truly inspiring. I'm thankful for the small (but meaningful) windows of freedom you experience while being an entrepreneur and blazing your own trail.

I'm thankful for the folks I've met that are willing to help me out, even though the returns for them will be a couple more years down the road!

Great list. It's nice to stop and be thankful once in a while. It reminds us all about why we started down this path to begin with.  
 
I'm thankful for everyone that has come before me and being able to stand on the shoulders of giants.

Great list! I'd add one more thing: to actually be the one who is able to create meaningful change in our surroundings and be a source of inspiration for others around us. All this can happen in other circumstances too, but its a great feeling that as an entrepreneur you are generally acknowledged of it and are thankful for.

Great list! I especially like #7, #10 and #12.  
 
Thankful for the ability to take risks, fail, take more risks, fail again, and again, then flourish beyond expectations, then fail, fail again, and then flailing around in mediocrity while waiting to take the next big risk to flourish beyond expectations.

Very thankful for family who have helped me a lot along the way but especially in the very beginning. Mom and dad let me crash with them when I was single and bootstrapping, and then, my spouse picked up the slack after we got married. Any one of them could've told me to give up and get a paying job.

Great list Dharmesh! 
 
I have been a self employed entrepeneur for over 30 years, 25 of those years in the insurance industry. My list would include the joy I receive from working with new business owners to solve their insurance needs so that they too can follow their dreams!  
 
And your #2 is correct ~ we have the best brokers in the industry and they really love what they do~ I enjoy working with them. Bottom line ~ I would not do anything else!

Great list. I would also add: 
 
"The opportunity to be creative and to indulge in doing something you are passionate about" 
 
That's what it's all about at the end of the day, other than building a sustainable business :)

I'm with Richard. To know that you are doing what you love, can build it your way (with mistakes and successes), come and go as you please, living a longer life because you're "living", and when you die know that you gave it your all and led a full and productive life - with no regrets.

Dear Dharmesh, 
 
Thank you for this truly inspiring list! I'm going to print it out to remind myself why I do the things I do! Thank you for the reinforcement! 
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I'm thankful for the educational opportunities provided EVERY DAY by my job at a startup. It's both humbling and inspiring.

Excellent list! I'm not an entrepreneur, but am one of those crazies who took the plunge and ended a 10 year comfortable career to join a rag-tag early stage start-up. 
 
I would also add being thankful for the incredible amount of learning experienced in a short period of time, working in an environment where failure means opportunity, and where the wins taste so much more delicious because of how hard you worked to get there.

One another that I would like to add:- 
13) Thankful to the family for helping and understanding the crazy entrepreneurs :)

posted on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 at 11:43 AM by Himanshu


Thankful for (1) a wife that has hung in there like a champ during this start-up process, (2) two young daughters that continue to encourage me and inspire me, and ask me innocent, but hard questions that make me look at and think about how and why I do the crazy things I do to add value, (3) being healthy at a time when health insurance was not an option... Whew.... so much stuff to be thankful for! Thanks for bringing up the topic!

posted on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 at 11:49 AM by Ezequiel Quijano


Hello Dharmesh, 
 
Thank you for this! The list is quite wonderful.  
 
I too am grateful for all of the above and for having so many amazing groups and people to connected with (this being one of them clearly) and I am most grateful for knowing that there is MORE than enough for every single one of us that our abundance is nurtured by our state of mind. Our success starts with our courage (and as entrepreneurs, we clearly have that) to really allow that burning desire to come to the surface and to take action on it. Not someday...but TODAY! I am grateful for those who remind me on a daily basis that the business and the life I so desire is happening! I wish that for all of you as well! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! To your bliss and to your success! SM xo

So many people don't really get how it feels to truly dream. They don't know what it means to see, feel, taste, and desire something so much to the point of crazyness. I'm a 'crazy' and proud of it! Great comments guys!

I love the list, especially #10: Day 2,743, when the world celebrates your “overnight success” 
 
 
 
The freedom to work when and where I want is what I am most thankful for. I'm spending about 30 extra hours a week on my dream than when I worked in corporate, and also make significantly less. Yet, I have never been happier!

Here in my case there is always failure time rather than success or luck...

Entrepreneurs dare to live the "creative life". Regardless of your religious persuasion or beliefs humans have endowed within them at birth this creativity, our innate talents belong not just to ourselves but give us an opportunity to change the world of those we love and care for, therefore it is a duty to use them to the fullest extent possible, this is our legacy - to live, to love, to look forward to, to learn and to leave something of value behind in others when we are no longer here - this is living, this is what it is to truly alive and "awake" to life's opportunities and ones destiny - sounds deep but its also very true and I hope it inspires you to even greater commitment to the entrepreneurial mindset and lifestyle

Freedom of thought, freedom to implement those thoughts without having to get it ok'd by anyone else, freedom to create jobs for others (or delete them for unsuccessful employees!), freedom of speech, freedom to 18 to 20 hours a day if I want (or freedom to take a break), freedom to pick and choose my family time (or not! haha!) and MOST IMPORTANTLY freedom to pick and choose my customers too!

Simply put, in a start-up you grow in ways you never will in an established company. No two days are the same, and you have opportunity after opportunity to make critical decisions to change direction without excessive approval processes.
