‘IN 1492 COLUMBUS SAILED THE OCEAN BLUE…’ AND THEN HIS REAL PROBLEMS BEGAN

Was Columbus an entrepreneur or just an early independent contractor? Either way he sailed out into a beautiful blue ocean on a giant spice hunt. Even though this happened more than 600 years ago, some things never change.

The seas got rough, the storms came, and the crew revolted when supplies got scarce along with all the other challenges small business owners face right here and now.

You may have gone out on a limb to run your business, but it is unlikely you agreed to sail off the end of the world to achieve it. (Remember people believed they could see the edge of the earth at the ocean’s edge in 1492).

Be courageous, my friends, and learn the real lesson of Columbus.

When riding the waves of uncharted territory, you may be on your way to discovering a whole new world. The possibilities are indeed endless.
