Skating Through

Last night I found some figure skating on television and watched the whole competition. The combination of beauty and athletic skill fascinates me and makes this my favorite sport to watch. It has a number of similarities to self-employment. Here are a few:

1. When you start out, you’re not very good. It takes practice, years and years of practice, before you get really good.

2. Having a coach or mentor helps.

3. Find a community of like-minded people.

4. Getting good requires sacrifices.

5. Sometimes you fall down, but you can’t stay down. You have to get back up and get on with the program.

6. You will probably not be able to do everything you need to do to become successful unless you love what you’re doing.
