Ride the Waves

By Delano Garner

As you venture down the road of entrepreneurial activity, it's important to realize there are going to be ups and downs. Some days you'll feel as though you're on the top of the world and you've got it all figured out, and nothing can stand in your way. On other days you may feel as if you’ve made a huge mistake by even starting. The best way to deal with the entrepreneurial roller coaster is to try and keep your emotions in check, that is, try not to get too high or too low. When you get that big contract, celebrate, but celebrate humbly, knowing that at any moment – in a few weeks or even a few days – the situation could change. Likewise, when the setbacks come – and they will – take them in stride, knowing that things will change for the better again soon. Always learn what you can from the ups and downs and keep moving forward.
