An Open Letter to Fathers and Entrepreneurs: The Journey is Worth It
Me and my girl 👧

Dear fellow fathers and entrepreneurs,

Becoming a father and being an entrepreneur are both profoundly rewarding journeys. I've been fortunate enough to experience them simultaneously, and they've shaped my life in ways I never anticipated.

In my early days of entrepreneurship, life was straightforward. Decisions and risks were mine alone to make and bear. The sense of freedom was intoxicating. Life, however, had a surprise in store for me, a delightful twist in the tale - fatherhood.

The day I became a father, my world transformed. No longer was life solely about my dreams, decisions, and the freedom to chart my path. A tiny little being had now become my prime focus, and life became a delicate dance between being a father and an entrepreneur.

Fatherhood teaches you to choose your battles wisely. Just like in the world of entrepreneurship, not every fight is worth fighting. Some battles are stepping stones, some are distractions, and some shape you into the person you are destined to be.

Being a father and an entrepreneur, I've learned that success is not always about doing more. It's about doing things differently, better, and smarter. It's about trusting your team, leveraging your experience, and striking the right balance between your professional and personal life.

When you become a father, you might find it challenging to juggle the responsibilities of your business and your family. But here's the truth - it's an experience you don't want to miss. Every late night and every early morning holds a beautiful chaos that makes the journey worthwhile.

As fathers and entrepreneurs, we strive to leave a legacy. We want our children to be proud of us and our professional accomplishments. The growth we experience, both personally and professionally, is our real success story.

To all aspiring father-entrepreneurs out there, embrace the journey that awaits you. Life will be different, and you will be better for it. Hard work, patience, and resilience are your allies. Success comes to those who continue to work hard on themselves and their relationships.

As a father and an entrepreneur myself, I've grown tremendously over the past 18 months. The journey hasn't always been easy, but it has undoubtedly been rewarding. There's an incredible sense of fulfillment that comes from looking at your child's eyes and realizing that you're not just building a business, but a life and a legacy.

To all of you who are embarking on this journey or are already on it, cherish these moments. These are the days that will define you as a person, a father, and an entrepreneur. The journey is challenging, life-changing, and definitely worth it.

With warm regards,
Remco Livain
