Author and entrepreneur Pat Flynn compares your dream of starting a new business to flying an airplane. You get in a plane, you fly around, and it’s awesome! You have this freedom to do whatever you want. But unless you know where you’re going, you will eventually run out of gas, and you might end up further away from where your destination should be.
Pat says it’s important to have a flight plan or figure out what your mission is first. You’re building something that’s going to change other people’s lives, so there’s a lot at stake here. We want to make sure the things we do align with where we want to go.
