Great Blog post

Very interesting post on one of my favorite blogs. The woman who wrote this is a former leader in the PRSSA Chapter at my alma mater, and her continued success is outstanding to see.

The quote is what I was really interested in - "Entrepreneurship is living  few years of your life like most people won't, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't." 

Very interesting to think about, and I think Jamie really encapsulates what the thoughts are about being an entrepreneur.

Bringing this back to associations - what are we doing in our associations, or as individual association professionals, to move beyond the 9-5, watching the clock attitude? Are we taking enough chances? Are we empowering our employees to understand that success means not necessarily working the normal 9-5 hours? Are any of us taking advantage of the potential of being entrepreneurs?
