A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon this article describing the connection between ballet and business. Instantly, I was eager to read its contents based on my infatuation with dance and my admiration for all those who committed themselves to the art and “made it.”
As I continued to read the article, I found myself making connections and comparisons between sports to business I had never made before. For instance, I realized an athlete’s career is fleeting, with most and their careers end within a decade. On the contrary, an entrepreneur’s career can begin as a start-up and span twenty or thirty, hell even forty years – and then their business’ legacy could even be timeless.
