I’m a big fan of business. To me starting a business is the act of picking up a hammer, nails and some wood and building a door where one hadn’t existed before. It’s a door you can open and close at your leisure because it’s your door. You don’t have to face the emotional blow of someone else slamming it in your face or, worse, not opening it for you. Of course it comes with its own challenges, but if business is your calling, your way of creating your own opportunities, those challenges never feel as bad as the ones you face when you’re not in control.

We’re dedicating this month to the entrepreneurial spirit, a spirit that seems to be cultivated even more in the United States than most places. And in a time when technology has leveled the playing fields of quite a few industries, it seems that more people have a chance.

Our call to action this month is to be entrepreneurial–in the literal sense, if you want, but also in the figurative. Being entrepreneurial means seeing opportunities where others see problems; it means being resilient and having vision–even if it’s solely a vision of what you want your life to be. We’re all the CEOs of our own lives; we’re the main drivers behind our own success. So it’s important that we take ownership of our desires and the actions that help us reach them.

Best,

Antonia

An entrepreneur at heart, I founded Unruly in 2013 after spending six great years in advertising. I’m über lazy when it comes to doing my hair so I’m always looking for easy and quick ways to care and style my hair.
