Never Gonna Survive

I have never been a fan of Seal. Therefore, when he redid Crazy, I hated it. In fact, if it wasn't for Alanis Morisette, I probably would have never truly been able to appreciate the song, but fortunate enough for me I did. Now I am sure most of you are familiar with the tune and are already humming the lyrics, "You're neveeer gonnaaa surviiiive unless, you get a little crazy" And if you can't quite place the song, I need you to go to I-tunes right now and make it the soundtrack of your life.

The fact of the matter is that its true. You will never survive if you dont get a little crazy. In fact, most successful people have done something crazy in their lifetime and that is why they are successful. So when you decide to become an entrepreneur you really have to be willing to become a little crazy, if you want to survive.

Entrepreneurs are entrepreneurs because they are trendsetters, they are quirky people who believe that there is a better way to market or provide a product or service and they do just that; regardless of the odd looks and sarcastic comments they receive from friends and family.

I remember when I first came to Ghana people thought I was crazy. But now, since I have successfully started a business and assimilated to life, the idea of relocating outside of the country for opportunity doesn't seem as crazy. In fact, I would go so far to say I have started a trend. Since relocating here, I have known 6 others to find success in business while living outside of the United States. Every other day, I am meeting some young person who has seen the opportunity in living abroad and has taken it on with full force. And yes, I can say we are all a little crazy. But the important thing is, is that we have survived.
