Entrepreneurs are competitive by nature.
They love passionate, tenacious competitors that go for it all. That is why they resonate so closely with athletes.

In fact, if you look into their backgrounds, many entrepreneurs were or are fierce athletes as well. It’s similar DNA that drives you to succeed despite enormous odds and competition.
So are our entrepreneurs are ecstatic about the Royal’s World Series Crown? Of course! Entrepreneurs love success, but they also love the teamwork, passion and camaraderie that the Kansas City Royals exude. The Royals are a very special group of competitors that show that they care deeply about each other as friends, as well as teammates. They are dazzling to watch and lead by example.
I believe that Kansas City is in a renaissance of sorts right now. Having been born and raised here, I can tell you there is a new electric energy both here in KC, as well as “on the road” when people hear where you’re from.
It’s so wonderful to have our city kicking on so many cylinders. So does being World Series Champs help our community? Sure! It’s just one more example of Kansas City staking its claim as an exciting place where you can drive toward your dreams. We are on the map in so many ways.
And just like entrepreneurs need to do from time to time, we all need to take break and celebrate the Royals’ achievements with them. Yes they are World Series Champs. But I think we are equally proud that they have the hearts of champions, too.
