Highlights of “Running” A Business

August 11, 2014

Business advice for women entrepreneurs and small businesses

running in morning

As I ran over the bridge leading to Cousin’s Island with the calm Maine waters below my feet and the morning sun rising over the horizon lighting my path, I rejoiced that it was August 8th once again, the day I was “born” a woman entrepreneur. The setting for signing my DBA papers was not as picturesque as my morning Mid-Coast Maine run, rather a sterile government business office where my entrepreneurial life began 19 years ago. I couldn’t have guessed then the brilliant hues that would invade my life as a woman entrepreneur.

I’ve learned a lot about business, myself and other women business owners during my 19 year run as I reminisced crossing Cousin Island’s bridge. Not only were the tide waters flowing into the cove, but my mind and heart were flowing with lessons I learned the past two decades. They came to my mind as my joy and gratitude of the morning run greeted my happiness and thankfulness for my long 19 year business “run.”

I run every morning because it keeps me healthy and brings me peace. I run a business that promotes, supports and connects women entrepreneurs because it’s my personal mission to help as many women entrepreneurs as I can become more financially successful by doing business with each other across the great state of New York. I have never needed a sunny morning run to make me feel good about what I do, I have only needed to listen to my heart, my soul and the words of women who tell me my company does for them makes a difference.

I hope you have an extraordinary business day. Remember the words of your customers. Celebrate your successes and bask in the personal motivation you have always had to run your amazing business. You are making a difference in this world. Keep on running.

Check back on Wednesday when I’ll recapture the five top business lessons I want to share with you after 19 years of witnessing successful women entrepreneurs and running my own businesses. I am sure they will illuminate your business day.
