It was Iman’s mission to dedicate this current issue solely towards entrepreneurship and clarify the reasons towards the rise of this motion.
Ali Al-Saloom could not have been a better candidate for this issue. His story is not only inspiring to others, but also shows us the adventurous journeys of being an entrepreneur. Make no mistake, it is not a walk in the park, but it is also not rocket science. If you positively believe in what you want to do, the hardships you will encounter should look like a challenge not an obstacle.
I only hope that April’s issue has encouraged you to take the steps you have long been willing to take, but could not find the encouragement from elsewhere. Think Derek Sivers TED talk on how to start a movement. The first guy accepted the challenge of being looked upon as a ”lone nut” by dancing shirtless in public, however soon enough came the second one, who encouraged the third, fourth, so on and so forth. So if you take it as a challenge, you will always be positive, and if you take it as an obstacle, you just might feel defeated.
So my fellow Sailors, this is your project, your business, your life. Take charge and own it.
