To every entrepreneur, CEO, leader, notorious one man business owner, I feel you.

I used to think HR was the most unappreciated job. Boy, was I wrong!

Unless God sends you angels, no employee will ever understand your plight.

It’s a very lonely place, and can be a very sad place.

There’s a constant weight on you, keeping you awake while everyone else sleeps.

You will be scrutinised, criticised and even mocked. Some will think they can do a better job and that your best, just isn’t good enough.

While others get to bask in their imperfections, you will be judged openly for yours.

Loyalty and Trust? What’s that?

Some you set out to help will betray you, pledging allegiance to other employees as quickly as they arrived.

And at the end of the day, yes, it still boils down to your poor leadership skills.

Well, today know this,

My dear, if all you achieve this period is to go back to the drawing board and reflect, you have done more than enough.

Despite your shortcomings, you are a rare breed, accounting for less than 3% of the world’s population.

Keep doing good, making a positive difference and helping the world solve meaningful problems.

I appreciate you and I’m in awe of you.

Keep glittering like the gold.

You, my friend, are diamonds and pearls!
