I'm working on my computer overwhelmed by this candidate's acceptance speech which caught my attention for a few minutes to pause and listen.
Listening through, I remember when I hit 21 years old successful transform a start-up 2 years of ago to US$500,000 which back then was a lot of equity and stability for a micro cottage enterprise. I started with this as this was the arena how I got started to be a presidential appointee for the Youth and Young Entrepreneurs then.
When I started that new role, I have all these entrepreneurial ideals that I've tested in being successful as an entrepreneur. This speech tonight reminded me of this idealistic ideals I did have to start then especially when I entered the foreign affairs relationship as APEC Youth Representative and co-chair of then APEC Young Entrepreneurs Assn.
During those years, I've to admit although some of my entrepreneurial skills and ideals were really essential I also learned a lot of what race, culture, foreign policy/relations as it relates to trade policies and governance. Likewise, I got a more better understanding why politicians have these so called platforms as when I started of course I just associated them with corruptions, dynasties and the like.
As I hear this speech tonight, my biggest concern as a struggling small independent business thinking back to my days and exposure to foreign policy is we cannot afford an individual that will be in the learning process and curve like me.
This country's liberal and urgent problems needs an experience statesman as we cannot afford for that person go through a training process. Of course, I don't mean to state that the other candidate my be the ideal person neither had we heard that other candidate's speech and platform.
Criticizing the starting from the the present policies does not give the message of what this candidate indeed brings to the table. However, I may be wrong just because I compared what I'm hearing to my personal experiences.
All I can say, let's hear what is there for the independent small businesses?
