Standing in line for coffee yesterday I overheard a conversation between two women. One turns to the other and says, “I would love to have a bakery like this one day.” Her friend immediately dismisses her, “That’s a terrible idea. Bakeries have a horrible time trying to survive in a city this fit, did you hear Sweetish Hill went out of business?” 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ We all have this friend.
The one who carries a pin in their wallet at the ready to pop your dream bubble the second an idea unfolds.
A bakery won’t work in #atx ??? Try selling that ideology to a company like @tiffstreats
People don’t spend a lot of time in bakeries anymore? Cool- we’ll bring our cookies to you. Now with 48 stores and over 900 employees-I’d say this couples empire is very much here to stay.
When prohibition came about it put hundreds of breweries out of business. When Miller Brewing Company heard they couldn’t make beer anymore they knew they had three choices:
1- they could still produce illegally (like some)
2- they could go out of business (like most)
3- they could adapt
Miller quickly switched their name from Miller Brewing to Miller Products and started to produce malt beverages, bottled sodas, and non alcoholic beer. When prohibition ended can you guess which company was already up and running? Full of eager staff ready to get back to brewing.
The nay sayers, the complainers, the bitchers, the too tired, the negative nancys, the I don’t want to work that harders- They will always be here, and they will always be small. These people love to help you when you’re down, when you’re sick. They do this not because of their love for you, but because they get self fulfillment out of it. Notice how these kinds of people don’t come around as much once you’re succeeding, once you don’t NEED them.
Let the small stay small. Do not try to force these people to change with you. Their path isn’t your path. Surround yourself with fellow ass kickers and #dreamers and if every now and then you need to reinvent yourself l- you go ahead and do just that. Thank you for #monday @marybehindthechair I cried no less than four times
