An entrepreneur & CEO wrote me an email around the holidays that sounded just a bit desperate; enough for me to take time out of family time over the holidays to take a meeting. It took her nearly an hour to unveil her dilemma, slowly revealing what she no longer wanted and then, finally, sharing this particulary wild idea about the life she wanted. She was not unclear what she wanted, but she had never seen it done before.
To my friend, the entrepreneur, I simply pose this question: “Are you asking me if you are allowed to have a dream? Because that is not mine to give, only yours to take.
