I love to plan. But…
Some of the best things that have happened to me as an entrepreneur have come from just being in the right place at the right time.
I secured my first huge client as a result of a lunch with a woman I had met only a couple of times previously. I happened to reach out to her when she was looking for a strategic plan for her business. Sharon Rowe, founder of Eco-Bags, is about to publish her first book. I met her through a random event and then a random e-mail connection. We were able to get her product on Oprah many years ago and we have been supporting each other’s businesses ever since. I could probably list at least 100 others I connected with through chance who had a significant impact on my life and business.
One might argue that this was all a result of smart planning rather than luck. But every decision we make in life can result in an unplanned surprise.
