Why I couldn't NOT do this
Hi. My name is Greg, and I’m an entrepreneurship addict … who also happens to be an attorney / MBA. The relentless ambition, discontent and vast overestimation of my MacGyver-like abilities – inherent in any entrepreneur – are embedded deep down in my genetic code.
I mention my “lofty” education, not to brag, but because it is relevant to what PG Rembrandt is all about. Early on, I believed risk-and-terror-free entrepreneurship could be achieved with enough school. If I could just take enough classes that would cover every conceivable contingency …
My experience is that entrepreneurship “domain expertise” can only come from actually doing entrepreneurship, failing at entrepreneurship, paying attention and taking notes. In fact, I think my hoity-toity education probably hurt more than it helped. I over-analyzed, didn’t enjoy getting my hands “too dirty” … everything you would expect from a wimpy, whiney, pampered JD/MBA. But I learned how to get things done, because I simply had to. My education at least gave me the ability to record good, detailed notes along the way.
In The Book Blog, I share my notes. All of ‘em. Organized. In detail. The best-of-the-best insights I’ve gathered over the years.
First: Because Small Business Owners are my heroes. They are, without exception, dreamers, who do. Brilliant creativity, our culture, jobs, extraordinary acts of service happen every day because of these heroes. I want you to succeed. I believe that effective, empowered Entrepreneurs make the world better.
Second: I love to help. I want to spend all day, every day, lifting, encouraging, and training others to build their realm. PG Rembrandt gives me the ability to do that, while feeding my family.
Finally: One of my joys of life is to be associated with good, interesting people – people I look forward to seeing and speaking with. My clients are remarkable, unique people who constantly give as much as they receive from me.
