Own the Opportunity

guy receiving a gift and not knowing what to do

The moment, you own it, you better never let it go (Go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
– Eminem

“So what happened next?” I asked..

“They wanted the financials, invoices, contact copies, etc.. It took me a few weeks to collect them all.. and right before I sent… we went into lockdown…. And you know the rest…”

“Tell me…”

“Well They weren’t interested anymore and of course our numbers took a dive and it took a couple of years to get them back to 2019 levels…”

“So what will you do now..”

“What I’ve always done.. but smarter…keep working .. and try to get someone else to buy..”

“How much did the other guys offer..?”

“8.62 million…”

“How much would you take now?”

“3 .. if I could get it…”

“How long will you give it?”

“well already longer then I expected…But I have bills to pay, so as long as it takes…”

And this guy isn’t alone.

And he wasn’t the first to miss out on a life changing opportunity by not being ready when it came knocking on his door.

And he won’t be the last…

How ready are you? How ready are any of us?
