After the first time you start a business, you’ve made a commitment that you want to give it to the community. You’ve got to be willing to make the effort to do the work for free. It’s not enough to put your life on hold and just take care of yourself, you need to go out and make the effort to make it happen.
It is true that you must be willing to put your business on the line to make a real difference for the community. You can’t just expect your business to work for free. It must be about the community – about the lives of people around you. If you do it for free, you’re just giving something away.
The point is that there is a huge difference between self-help and self-promotion. While you can put your life on hold and just focus on the people around you, you cannot just ignore the community around you. You cannot just ignore the people that make you feel good about yourself or the people that make you feel good about your business. It is about doing things for the people that matter.
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard people say, “I would love to be a part of the community, but I’m a single person.” I disagree, and I’m 100% with you. I am a single person, and I do have many friends, but I have a lot more friends than I do friends.
I have never met anyone with a greater tolerance for the other person’s flaws than myself. I have a friend that is a part of an all-male group that is also called a “nude club”. I have many friends that are in the dance scene. I am in a group of friends who have gone to the same school as me. I have a friend that is in the same church as me. I am friends with a couple people that are friends with me.
I am also friends with many people that I do not know. I have several friends that I have not talked to in a long time, but I do know them. I have another friend that lives in a different state than me. I have a friend that I have seen for years, but I have never had a real conversation with her.
I am a health and fitness nut. I’m definitely not a raquet player. I’m just a person who plays sports. I do not play them seriously.
The health and fitness side of my life is a little like the other thing that keeps me busy in the real world. I’m a big fan of sports, and I love it when I get to see athletes perform their best. I’m also a big fan of good friends. It’s a little disconcerting when those two things happen to you in combination.
In fact, the only time I’ve ever seen Alex go to the gym was when she was in her second year at college. The first time I saw her she was at her first gym, and even then I was very impressed. I was just as impressed at the gym where Alex was going, but I also know that Alex was very impressed when she saw me at the gym she frequented the first time.
That gym was very good, I just happened to be there when Alex went there. She was in her first real season with the NYCL for the first time when I was there. I had only been there once before, so I was very impressed that Alex was able to see herself as a member of the team she wanted to join. The only other time I was at a gym was the second time I saw her, in her first year at college.
