Opportunity in Disguise


If the key to entrepreneurial success is discovering a need and satisfying it, then perhaps the key to successful markets is increasing awareness of a need through networks, and in a mutually beneficial manner. When investors and venture capital is harder to come by, how much greater is the opportunity, as those hurdles will certainly not be overcome by the faint of heart.  Times such as these require innovation, courage, vision and passion.  Only the mavericks with tenacity will have what it takes to accomplish their dreams by recognizing challenges as opportunity in disguise.

Without passion, you don’t have energy; without energy, you have nothing. Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion. ~ Donald Trump

For every problem postulated today as to why there is unrest in our markets, why there are so many unemployed, and why we have such a troubled economy,  I would say that there is an even greater opportunity resting under the surface waiting to be found and advantaged by some imaginative soul, someone with enough passion to recognize a void and fill it.

It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what’s required. ~ Sir Winston Churchill
