To you, the young entrepreneur… to be clear, young is not at all about age; it is about experience in the game. How much time have you put in? Have you put in the work? Reality is, it is more about the status of your company than the actual time in which you have put in. Don’t get it twisted… time and efforts are important, but for today’s discussion, we are focusing on people’s idea of Saturday.

To a young entrepreneur with proper drive and motivation, a Saturday means nothing more than the sixth day of the week… too bad for those who think the week only has five days in which you can work, earn, and grow. Five days…? Who are you clowning? You have a company that you are trying to grow; how can you take a weekend to rest? How does Friday or Saturday become a day to party? You feel as though you have worked a long week… you’re tired… you deserve a break…
“I’m in a good spot and will pick back up on Monday,” you say as you text your homies to figure out where the hot spot is tonight.

Truth is, you have not yet earned that privilege. You have to get there… You have to put in the work and earn that time off. If I am having to tell you this, you have the wrong perspective…

If you want to reach the height of your true potential, you must be committed to getting it done. You have no time to be wasting at this stage in the game. You have your whole life to party and enjoy a day off. Get there first… Earn it!

For the avid entrepreneur, fully joy, and eager to get it going, they need not be reminded to get back to work. You are a soldier fighting for something… fighting for financial freedom, to break the chains of conventional society that says normal is a 9-5 Monday through Friday job, and ultimately find true independence in one’s skills and abilities to market said skills. This is where you are going… you can not lay down and give up the fight until you have fought and won.

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” – Vince Lombardi

The great Vince Lombardi could not have said it any better… These words speak volumes when referring to football, life, and even business. If you want to win, win.

You don’t take a day off until you win. Get there already and earn that day off.

You’re on your way and believe me that day off is going to feel great when you know that things are running smooth in your business and you can truly embrace your time off.
