Taken following my daughter's pre-K graduation ceremony a few weeks ago (that's her in the yellow dress), this photo captures the joy of life through the eyes and squeals of several 5-year old girls. Life can be difficult between this stage and adulthood. It can even have a way of stealing the kind of purity of heart that is captured in the faces of these precious little ones. There was a time when I had lost my joy, but God restored it several-fold in many ways, the most profound of which is The Indie Business Way.
The Indie Business Way
- The Indie Business Way gives you confidence. Just when you think you've encountered a business wall you cannot scale, or a customer returns your products in a huff, you find the strength to climb a little higher and chalk your mistake up to experience. You learn to welcome the challenges. Each success leads to another. Each mistake makes you better. Soon, there's nothing you can't do.
- The Indie Business Way empowers you to help others. When you build something from scratch, you learn a lot. Along the way, a lot of people help you. You may have formal investors or friends who give you the money to cover the phone bill now and then. Or maybe you have a spouse or sibling who chips in during busy times to package products or help you update your website. When you humble yourself and allow others to help you, you are empowered to in turn help others.
- The Indie Business Way makes you smile. When you start with nothing and end up with a valuable asset, it feels good. And no matter what else comes your way, you always have something smile about.
