Boys to Men Entrepreneurs Leadership Academy

Boys to Men Entrepreneur's Credo

I do not choose to be a common man.

It is my right to be uncommon, if I can,

I seek oppotunity - not security.

I do not wish to be a kept citizen.

Humbled and dull having the state look after me.

I want to take the calculated risk.

To dream and to build.

To fail and succeed.

To refuse to barter incentive for a dole;

I prefer the challenge of life.

To the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment.

Do the stale calm of Utopia.

I wil not trade freedom for beneficence.

Nor my dignity for a hand out.

I will never cower before any master.

Nor bend to any threat.

It is my heritage to stand erect.

Proud and unafraid;

To think and act for myself,

To enjoy the benefit of my creations,

And to face the world boldly and say;

This with God's help, I have done.

All this is what it means

To be an Entrepreneur.

Thomas Paine
