The Power of Entrepreneurship
It takes a special kind of person to take the reigns of their own fate, but it takes a different person entirely to step up and accept the responsibility that comes with shaping a whole city.
Entrepreneur Phil Cooley is that type of person.
No one asked Phil to buy abandoned buildings and make them better. No one asked him to spend a fortune building businesses in Detroit, but he did it anyway.
Why? Because he’s an entrepreneur, and entrepreneurs love to shape the world.
We’re also selfish. We love to shape the world in our own image, because we believe that our image is best. Very often, we’re right.
Call it pompous, call it arrogant - it is what it is.
This is the day of the entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs like Phil are saving the world every single day, but because of selective journalism and mainstream interests, we don’t see it as often as we should.
We see a poorly re-written history of Facebook rather than the real story. We see photographs of what was, rather than what might be.
We hear about the demise of this industry, and that industry, not being told that within this destruction lies a thing of beauty - the great reset, and another golden age.
This, my friends, is the renaissance, and it’s yours for the taking. The question is - are you bold enough to get off your ass and back on your feet?
