“Stop and smell the roses!”

“Stop and smell the roses!”

Most small business owners wish they had a dollar for every time some “civilian” presumed to pass judgment on the way we spend our time.

Of course, we shouldn’t follow our dream to the detriment of family, health, or spirit. But civilians should remember that “stop and smell the roses” is a metaphor. And every human gets to define his or her own metaphorical “roses.”

In fairness, it’s not the civilian’s fault, because they are typically those who work someone else’s dream, as an employee. Since their “roses” are not likely to be found where they work, it makes sense for them to think a small business owner should get out of the business more, or to question why we work on weekends, or to encourage us to play more golf.

When you see small business owners working on their business on a beautiful Saturday, instead of playing golf, don’t presume that they aren’t smelling their roses.

Here’s what civilians often don’t understand about entrepreneurs: We don’t have to leave work to smell the roses.
