EntreParents

A lot of shouting, a lot of waiting, a lot of pain. But what follows is a euphoria that engulfs man in a way that nothing else has ever before. The sound of a baby crying, the most welcomed crying.

Father and mother. They raise their child by giving their all. They say, no one cares for a child in a more gentle way than his own parents. Diapers, dirty diapers everywhere. Late nights, troubling nights. But they don’t care. They get up in the middle of the night to silence their wailing beloved every single time. They look at their child, not as the cause of their inconvenience, but as a blessing for them to love. No one knows a child better than his parents. Uncles, aunties, people. They see the child for 10 minutes. Parents have seen the child since his he was born. They know the nuanced details, when the child sleeps and when the child eats. They school him, they teach him how to talk to elders and how to hold the fork and knife.

The child is now a man. The man changes the world. The world has no one but the man to thank. The man has no one but his parents to thank.

A lot of shouting, a lot of waiting, a lot of pain. But what follows is a euphoria that engulfs man in a way nothing has ever before. The sound of mechanic steel clashing.

Entrepreneurs. They build their company by giving their all. They say, no one wants a company to grow more than the people who conceived it. Papers, crumpled papers everywhere. Late nights, troubling nights. But they don’t care. They stay up all night, every night to silence their beloved critics. They look at their critics, not as the cause of their inconvenience, but as a blessing for them to push and inspire. Employees, clerks, people. They’re at the company for a couple of years, maybe a few more. Entrepreneurs have been at the company since the idea struck their head. They know the nuanced details, when the company delivers and when the company is lacking. They grow it, they develop it to function overseas and to impress customers and banks alike.

The company is now massive. The company changes the world. The world has no one but the company to thank. The company has no one but the entrepreneur to thank.
