Entrepreneur Wisdom from a Broken Arm

It was one of those freak accidents.

Missed a step going out my back door and took a tumble onto the concrete garage floor.  Tried to brace the fall and ended up with a broken arm.

Not fun.

Anyway. . . while being forced to keep my arm above my heart (!), I’ve learned a few things.  Of course, I’ve turned it into a nice little wisdom list for all you entrepreneurs out there!  Here’s what my broken arm has taught me so far:

  • A good system in place will keep working when you can’t.
  • Having a VA is essential.  OK, I already knew this, but it was re-emphasized!
  • Audio ROCKS!  If I can get it done by talking, I’m all about it.
  • Some things can wait.  I’m grateful for this little realization.
  • Patience.  Typing with one hand can be a witch. Slow and cumbersome are words that don’t do it justice! I’m still learning to embrace patience.
  • You can still get a response with short e-mails.
  • Technology rules.  Two words: Dragon Dictation.

And last but not least, I learned that entrepreneurs are flourishing in every niche.  Getting bored with my traditional splint and sling, and thinking there must be a way to make it more attractive and pretty, a Google search turned up FashionCastCovers.com.  Who KNEW?

Have an amazing day!
