The chicken and the pig

Sometimes we say we're behind an idea or mission, but we're only casually involved and would bail if things got tough.
It's like breakfast - the chicken was involved, but the pig was committed.

What are you ALL IN on?

Me? Im always eyeing up my next project, possibility of taking on 2 1 bed apartments in the next door building for Vacation rental or going to the other side for 16 more bedrooms depending - its all about getting what weve got into the best shape and maximising turnover to show we can support the mortgage.

Committed or should be in the other sense.  DH figures the downturn in the market can be a good thing in the end for us as less desirable properties in our area go under.  More market share for us.  Also as people sell summer homes, they need somewhere to stay while on vacation....something to think about!

I'm committed.  Moving sucked and I'll never do it again.  So I guess I'll run the place.

 

Seriously, I'm looking forward to full on for about 10 years and then modified by my mood.

All in here!   For the last 25 years we have been warmly greeting guests to our B+B and we don't see an end in sight yet!   

This place has been defined by us and we by it!  As long as we can still do the work we will open our doors to visitors from around the world.

I am committed to keeping a B & B in my city. (I am also probably waiting to be committed.)

We committed to doing this biz for 10 years no matter what. You've all listened to me cry and rant when the bottom dropped out of the market. But we're still here.

Lots of owners who tried to bail at that time are still here also but I think it's harder for them to be 'here' when they are wishing they weren't.

(I don't mean on the forum, I mean in my town.)

another from the same inspiration today:

Entrepreneur
Entrepreneur - one who undertakes, manages, and assumes the risk of a new enterprise.  The word comes from the French where it literally means "undertaker".

You need to be brave or crazy to be an entrepreneur, as most fail because they don't learn enough about what is required for success.

Are you the right blend of brave (crazy), smart and well informed and willing to do the RIGHT things to succeed?

Here is one for you from Margaret Atwood...

"1984" is not a wonder tale. Not only could it happen, but it has happened, but under different names.

Did you know there is an inn on this forum who uses 1984 as the key code for the guest front door? TRUE.

To be specific, to undertake, the verb, not the noun.
