This weekend I experienced a joy that we don’t talk about enough in entrepreneurship. Two amazing people that we hired at Peach New Media got married…. to each other! These two amazing Peaches wouldn’t have met had we not hired them, and that is a powerful thought for an entrepreneur.
We as entrepreneurs spend most of our time thinking about the first degree impact we have on the world. Creating jobs, solving problems, contributing our direct dollars to the economy. But should take time to appreciate that the effects of entrepreneurship extend far beyond what we can see.
So many life-long relationships are formed. Personal networks are built, marriages happen, heck even children are born because of the companies that we create!
If you’ve created a company that has impacted at least 50 people, I encourage you to take a few minutes and inventory some of the lives you’ve touched. It will give you a nice boost of energy and reminder to keep the big picture in mind.
Also: remember, what you’re doing is bigger than you.
