How Will You Outlive Your Life?

How Will You Outlive Your Life?

You probably became an entrepreneur because there is a part of the world you want to change somehow, whether in a small way or a big way.

Entrepreneur and Inventor Thomas Edison founded one of the largest companies in the world, General Electric, and gave us many things we use today like incandescent lights. He also helped build the modern media industry.

Entrepreneurs like Warren Buffett and Oprah Winfrey have billions of dollars as a result of building successful companies, but what they are driven by is using their money to make a difference and leave a legacy.

Your legacy doesn’t have to be on a grand scale like the aforementioned entrepreneurs either. Your product or service changing just one person’s life means you’ve had an impact.

I see entrepreneurship as a huge opportunity to contribute something meaningful to the world and change people’s lives through our work, and that’s what I want to talk about in today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV.
