You know how trends go. Things get popular, it gets blown out of proportion and we all believe we can do anything. Usually, getting swept up in trends has no more negative effect than making us look a little silly.
But what if there were more at stake? What if mistakenly jumping on this bandwagon could tear your family down or set your back a decade or two, financially?
When did it become so trendy to be an entrepeneur? It seems like everyone you know is starting their own business. Or in my world, planting a church. And everyone is sure they will succeed, even though statistics say the opposite.
I'm not against entrepeneurs. I'm defintley not against church-planting. But, before you bet the farm, have a plan in case it doesn't go exactly how you envision it. Part of that plan is knowing who you really are. Part of that plan is basing it in reality. Part of that plan is gathering wise counsel from a variety of sources BEFORE you begin.
There's a whole lot more spinning in my head here, but that's enough for now. Let me know what you think.
