Shady Ladies.

Day two at FIDM has my friend Angelina and I up to some shady business.

For some reason, we're always on the same outfit brainwave because every time we meet up, we're matching! Today, it was black and white with pops of green and pops of red.

Anyhow, 'twas during my second class of the day today (Entrepreneurship) that I became incredibly inspired. Easily, it's one of my favorite classes this quarter and it's only been the first week. But with my magazine passion, today's lesson really clicked.

We were introducing ourselves, talking about what we wanted to do when we grew up. And the teacher talked about how a lot of people have jobs and are in some sort of industry, but they don't know the why besides the obvious: money.

Money, security, it's all the rewards that people seek. But what about the why? What about the thing that fires you up and that get's you up in the morning without groaning and without questioning the love you have for your work? Because, after all, if you're doing what you love, it wouldn't be considered work, am I right?

What you do proves what you believe. If you are only doing something for the benefit of the end result (the paycheck, the fame, the glory), then you are a product of a life not worth living. After all, living your life with purpose and with passion is what will ultimately make you successful, and happy.

So how does this tie into being an entrepreneur? Well, we were taught that there are leaders, and then there are those who lead. Those who lead do business by way of communicating a product by what it is. Those who lead (Steve Jobs, MLKJ) do business by way of communicating a product by why they're doing what they're doing.

You see, people don't buy what you do, but why you do it. And people will want to do business with you because they'll believe what you believe. How do you do that? By leading with purpose, and sharing a dream not for what it is, but why you're doing it.

Why are Angelina and I posed as such? Well, why not?
