After hearing the news about Kate Spake and reading the reactions on social media, I was inspired to write my own thoughts about her unexpected death.
Here is what I shared on my personal Facebook page:
The response I received from this post was generally positive, but there was one comment that I would like to address.
So incredibly stressful to have your own businesses but I think we need to do that with people in general, not just entrepreneurs.” -Facebook Friend.
When I wrote this, I was not saying that we shouldn’t do this for all people. Of course I believe all lives matter and that we should care for all people…not just entrepreneurs.
However, I will not apologize about directing this particular post towards entrepreneurs. I took this moment to speak to entrepreneurs and the people who love them. Kate Spade was an entrepreneur married to an entrepreneur. She was dealing with pressures that most of us, including myself, will never understand.
