? From Startup to Sustainable Enterprise

June 2, 2021

Embracing the Entrepreneurial Journey

When you set out to launch a Startup full of purpose, passion, and promise you realize from the jump there are going to be impediments. You believe in the journey so you prepare to take the plunge — but sometimes obstacles may arise that you never even considered. You may feel a loss of control, may be unsure of how to respond, and you may believe you don’t have the capability or capacity needed to address them. So, what do you do?

You have to embrace this feeling as part of the entrepreneurial journey. It’s amazing how many Startups falter when they first hit a roadblock or that proverbial “brick wall” that is perceived as insurmountable.

You cannot plan for every possibility, but at OnRamp, we introduce attendees to the tools necessary to begin their journey with optimism that prepares them for many of the eventualities they will need to know.

As my experiences have taught me, “It’s not what happens to you but how you react to it, that determines your outcome”. Business success is about embracing the problems, finding solutions, overcoming obstacles, and rising to the challenge. Then one day you realize you’re no longer a Startup but a sustainable ENTERPRISE.
