Be a Risk Taker

So, OK.. while most of this has nothing really to do with business, it does. Does that make any sense?
Life is about taking risks, especially as an entrepreneur so I wanted to share my latest craziness with you.
I have had long hair for years, mostly because hubby like it and I kept it to feel more girly and honestly, to make him happy.
The thing is, deep inside, I felt kind of trapped under all of that hair. It was so much work and either took hours to fix or it ended up in a messy ponytail or a bun 99% of the time.
I kept seeing pictures all over the place of cute pixie cuts and started almost obsessing with it and well..
I finally, told my husband that I wanted to cut my hair. (well, go get it cut) and he said “Honey, I would love you if you were bald and you know that.” So, I ran to the computer to search for a stylist and made an appointment like THAT day.
I got there with my heart set on a short, pixie cut and the stylist talked me out of it and into a bob. I liked it but it wasn’t what my heart really wanted and I settled. I settled to make everyone else happy but forgot myself.
A day went by and I tried to love this bob but umm, it just wasn’t happening. I explained this to the hubster and he took me to the stylist again to get what I wanted. I go there and explained and I could see him in the waiting area, sort of unhappy about it and being a semi-Mr Grumpy pants but clippity clip.. FINALLY. I had what I wanted. Wait. Let me type that again. What I wanted. I was so excited and still am, every time I walk by a mirror. Him? Well, at first he was a little weirdo but last night, he looked at me and said it was sexy. I asked him why and he said because it showed him just how stubborn I am and to him, that was the sexy part.

So, what does this have to do with you and business?
I guess, it is just a reminder that you cannot please everyone. Be stubborn. Hold your ground. You get the gist. Right?
OK, well that is my hair saga for the week. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Have a brave week.
