beguine

I just got home. I finished the grant proposal I was working on. Which was not necessarily a gigantic thing in itself, but the way that it has intersected with other things I'm trying or allegedly trying to do here has made me feel like Boy Detective, Interrupted the last few weeks.

Anyway, this is the first post of the rest of my life.

Meanwhile, earlier this evening I was talking to a friend of mine who is considering a career redirection and I was trying to convince her to re-redirect into an entrepeneurial venture with me. As ever, I have trouble understanding how someone can recognize that I have a perfectly brilliant idea and yet still not be eager to devote her life on its behalf.

Which blog should we be reading to get info about your brilliant idea?

Like I'm supposed to just give that away for free.

First, please don't read this as a discouragement! I just feel compelled to share.

I recently relinquished the fruition of my brilliant idea--my biz--completely to my ex. Once that happened, one of my best friends finally decided to jump on board and I got roped into being their consultant. Not that I'm complaining.

In 12 years, those two men have been the only ones eager to devote their life to my idea that scores of people oft lauded.

Oddly, success isn't proportional to the brilliance factor.

Best of luck to you!

Like a marriage proposal, a brilliant idea must be sincere.

Congratulations on finishing your proposal. :) I hope you're taking the day off today.
