The big idea

My gardening business is up and running, the container business is already 7 years old and I'm already starting another new project. My mind is always churning out new ideas and in my state of excitement, nothing seems impossible! If I'm beginning to look like a jack of all trades, I can't help it. It's just the entrepreneur in me.

I must admit some of the stupidest ideas had crossed my mind but hey, weird ideas may work sometimes. While alot of impractical ideas have ended up in the bin, I'm still not discouraged.

Reading the success stories in today's special supplement on "The Entrepreneur of the Year 2009 - A Rotary-ASME Award" only inspires me to work harder. The top entrepreneurs represent diverse industries like healthcare, F&B, construction, retail and logistics etc.

If they can be successful, I don't see why other people cannot make it. What these winners have is the drive, passion and willingness to work harder than everyone else.

I know that as long as I don't stop thinking and dreaming, I will hit the big idea one day.

CONGRATS on the gardening business going so well and GOOD LUCK on another project.

I SALUTE you, BT! You really are an inspiration to me. I should also try to find out some business ideas since it's SO hard to find a decent job (decent = something I'd enjoy doing) here in Sodankylä.
