How You Know You’ve Created the Company of Your Dreams

“I felt this interior calm that was sort of amazing”

 

The struggle…

Starting a successful business is one of the most daunting tasks that someone can undertake.  It takes up a ton of your time, doesn’t pay you any money for a long time which means you usually do it on the side of your paying job, and the light at the end of the tunnel remains frustratingly dim for much longer than you’d prefer.  Honestly, there’s no way around these struggles and frankly there shouldn’t be because in the end, owning a business can be one of the most rewarding decisions you can make.  But the process of starting a business is particularly hard simply because it can take a while before you even start to understand what you’re truly doing it for.

 

The light at the end of the tunnel…

We found an article on Entrepreneur.com that sums up the feeling one gets when they know they’re over the hump of that initial struggle.  As the founder of Sailo, Adrian Gradinaru puts it, “I felt this interior calm that was sort of amazing,” says Gradinaru.  Sailo is a new company that has been described by Entrepreneur.com as the Airbnb of yachting, with over 150 boats available for renting through the site in local beach towns in New York (New York City, the Hamptons, Jersey City) and Florida (Miami, Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach).  Not too shabby to be compared to the company that is majorly disrupting the massive hotel industry… “It’s not about money, it’s not about profit, I feel like we are providing a service that people are actually using and they are enjoying it”, Gradinaru goes on to say.

 

Why you do it…

The founders of Sailo have gotten themselves to a beautiful position of comfortably operating their business after only starting in November 2014.  They are seeing an increasing return on the money they’ve invested with continuing boat rentals and location expansions.  Delphine Braas is another co-founder and one who is also experiencing the rewards that entrepreneurs live and breathe for.  Seeing your company make a positive effect on the customers that you had worked so hard for is enough to keep you hooked on the life of entrepreneurship.  Delphine Braas recalls having the realization that sealed the deal for her…

…“One of our customers called us, this was somebody we didn’t know, and they just told us that they had had the best day [of] their life. And we had created a company that provided the best day of people’s lives and that’s ultimately why we started it”…

That’s the joy of entrepreneurship and exactly what us at The Sampler are proud to promote.
