Constructiv Works – Digital Marketing Company
“What’s the worst that could happen?” Walt Harris
Today. Today it is four days before my wife and I are expecting the birth of our twin boys, Kids number 4 and 5. Today is also the official launch date of my new business. venture, Constructiv Works Inc., a digital marketing company.
Seems like crazy timing. My wife and I had our doubts and at times thought “could there possibly be a worse time?”. It was not an easy decision to leave my job and risk and the potential of falling on my face. There was a lot of fear. Fear could have easily kept me from stepping out.
So why title my first business blog post “What is the worst that can happen?” I’m in marketing and I’m starting out with a negative statement. A statement that has a twinge of “this might not work”.
Sometimes, fear of the unknown prevent us from trying something. My wife, Carleigh told me once, “You are either motivated by love or by fear”. I want to be motivated by love and I am.
When I was reviewing the my career options, I had a great talk with my father-in-law, Walter Harris. His response was just that. “Do what you love. What’s the worst that could happen?”
He said this as an encouragement not as a statement of doubt. He was saying,”Your family has your back. Go for it! You are starting this venture on your own but you are not alone.”
He disarmed the fear, the arrival of my twin boys is my motivation and my years of experience and success is my fuel.
What’s the worst that can happen? I’ll tell you, and it won’t be something negative. I won’t let that happen.
I am going to have fun.and I am giving this 100%.
