Over the past few months I’ve come across this quote several times “One day someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.” – Unknown
Now, going by the usual photos that accompanies this quote, it is meant as a comfort for all those people who have not yet found that special person to share their life with – and in my opinion, a true quote. But this week something went ‘click’ and I suddenly saw this quote from a completely different perspective.
As an entrepreneur it describes perfectly when you finally find that person to seal the deal with, to become partners with, or that person that CAN help you get what you need.
This is where we are at now. Or almost are.
If this current person is The One, then the quote would ring true.
It would make us see why in 2004 the ‘mum and dad’ investors didn’t work out.
Why in 2005 the rescue package/venture capitalists didn’t work out.
Why in 2006 the
funder didn’t work out. Youth Academy
Why in 2011 the famous Armenians we approached didn’t work out.
Why in 2011 the Slovenian investment manager, who we spent seven months waiting for, didn’t work out.
Could this new person be it? He ticks all the boxes, even more so than we ever dreamed possible. There are so many positives. And we tried looking for negatives, but couldn’t come up with any.
Only time will tell if this is it – a month or two should do it!
