I met someone the other day…

I met someone the other day… Another human. He had come into my place to deliver a new microwave, and it reminded me of the times in my past when I wouldn’t have even acknowledged his presence.

The downs are what make the ups so sweet. And, while people have told me that I made moving into entrepreneurship look easy, just like anyone else, it’s not always been easy.
