In the spirit of Thanksgiving I compiled a list of things I am thankful for. The following are a few of my thankful points relating to me experience with New Enterprise Forum and entrepreneurs we help.
I am Thankful to people who have positive entrepreneur spirit. These people have been of special enjoyment to work with and in my opinion have been the most successful in their entrepreneur endeavors. To see an entrepreneur accomplish their goal is rewarding, however to see entrepreneurs enjoy what they are doing while working towards their goals is special.
I am Thankful for entrepreneurs and associates who can turn problems into opportunities, challenges and solutions. As can be seen at every NEF meeting most businesses are based on solving some problem for customers. Individuals who can apply the same attitude and skills to daily issues have an advantage and are more likely to succeed. They are also a pleasure to work with.
I am Thankful for experience of working with team players. Being a successful entrepreneur is not an individual effort or accomplishment. There are many people involved. The entrepreneurs I find special are the ones who appreciate, or you may say are thankful to, the other people involved.
A special thanks to the NEF board, program committee, stakeholders and everyone who keeps New Enterprise Forum going and in turn make it possible to part of the other items mentioned above.
