Over the last couple of years I have met quite a number of incredibly intelligent uni students who want to make a positive dent in the world. Many are passionate about social enterprise and using business to change the world.
As their degrees come to an end and it’s time for them to move to the next thing, almost all of them choose grad programmes at big corporates. They reason that they can make some money, pay off their student loans and then once they have everything all together they will start to change the world.
What they miss of course is the fact that it is never the right time to start something new.
There are always loans that need to be paid off, and in the future families that need to be supported.
The reality is that now is as good a time as ever.
In fact, now is the right time.
If you are brave enough.
Note to self. Now is the right time. In fact there has never been a better time to start something new.
Stop hiding behind a thousand reasons not to, and start.
