Vanguards Rule Others Drool

In war and struggle the vanguard is the first to reach the beach
The lessons of success to those following to pass on and quickly teach
In business a vanguard is often the pioneer who is the beta site
Imitators soon follow to pick up the pieces and win the black ink fight
The entrepreneur may or may not be a vanguard named
So hard to teach so hard to the passion to succeed against all odds inflame
One will never know who might succeed in the valley of the shadows of Bk
Only a sense that a force field against the inertia of not taking the risk holds sway
Never doubt this nation or its youth will not in meeting challenges meet muster
Students, true vanguards pounding away on computers at a Starbucks rather than Dave and Busters
Never forget that when you board your ship of dreams
The nay sayers, doubters, and lawyers are the barnacles that hobble and make you return downstream
