How Travel Sparks The Entrepreneurial Spirit | Red Pyramid | Egypt
I’ve now traveled to one of the seven wonders of the world.
To say that is a dream come true, would be an understatement.
Traveling the world, learning about other cultures, and becoming well-versed in how to communicate with different people are the big bonuses of being an entrepreneur that I thoroughly enjoy.
On my recent trip to Egypt, I was reminded of yet another thing about the entrepreneurial spirit: determination to try new things, even if there’s risk involved.
My first day in Cairo, I headed straight to see the first smooth pyramid ever constructed: The Red Pyramid. It was built for the first king of the fourth dynasty, Sneferu (2613-2589 B.C.)
The architect was supposed to build the pyramid at a 45-degree angle, as commanded by the king.
Unfortunately, when the pyramid was nearly half-built, the architect realized he’d been working at a 55-degree angle instead.
So the slope mid-way up the pyramid is a result of the transition back to a 45-degree angle!
The pyramid is majestic up close, but it wasn’t the most awe-inspiring thing that day.
I had the opportunity to go inside the Red Pyramid.
I kept hearing tourists’ conversations about how afraid they were to come in. I find it interesting that there’s fear attached to going inside dark places.
Well, a pitch-black interior wasn’t going to stop me.
I journeyed right inside (and used my phone flashlight to guide me!) At one point, I was completely alone in the limestone belly of the pyramid. And it was magical!
I knew that I wasn’t going to come all the way to Egypt and not take in everything I possibly could, even if others were fearful.
And that’s exactly what I did.
Another thing that all successful entrepreneurs do: they seek out information and mentors.
