The President of our company, Maher Masri, shared the above poem with us during our August company meeting. For weeks I've stared at this poem thinking about what it means to me on a personal level, what it means for me in my work, and how it might inspire others.

Before I moved over to the marketing dept. in March, I spent the previous three years working on the Genuitec sales team, with a vast majority of my time dedicated to sales for MobiOne. In that time, I can barely wrap my head around the number of times that I spoke with with entrepreneurs consumed with big ideas about apps or databases they wanted to create - maybe thousands?

I think that is why this poem struck such a chord with me. Entrepreneurs are by nature a more driven bunch, but that does not mean that they are without doubt. The key difference between entrepreneurs and everyone else is that they press on. To me, that's what this poem is about- pressing on despite self, despite obstacles, despite fear, and finally coming to the realization that success is of our own making. Believing in something is not half as effective in the business world as believing in yourself.

So, if you have a great idea about an app, whether it's for gaming, business, or pleasure - Go for it! What have you got to lose?

If it doesn't perform the way you want it to, re-access and redo - focus on continuous delivery and upgrades. And if it still isn't all you hoped for, AT LEAST YOU TRIED!

If you're not a developer by trade, then rest assured in knowing that we have technologies like MobiOne with drag & drop functionality; by design it's meant to take the guess work out of mobile app creation.

The point is, you have to be willing to try in order to succeed. If you're willing to try, you're already half way there to winning! And who knows, what you develop may be the next big thing. It may be something that you discover, "Well Heck! I'm really good at this! I could turn this into an empire!" Just go for it.

Ready to make it happen?

Download MobiOne to create the app of your dreams in minutes -OR - for a more robust enterprise app builder, try MyEclipse 2013 with Mobile Tools.
