Bruce Springsteen could be the poet laureate of entrepreneurs. His lyrics are a stark commentary about prospects that sometimes go south and the importance of moving ahead. In other words, sometimes you have to get out of a business while you still can.
If you love Springsteen songs for the lyrics like I do (not that there’s anything wrong with the music) then you know what I mean when I say that there’s a line or a poignant phrase from some Bruce song that seems perfect for just about any and every occasion. I can think of dozens of times – staring down into one abyss or facing up to another impending disaster– when the Boss was the only solace I could find. Even in the worst of times, his music has always been a touchpoint and, even when you may be at a loss for words, he speaks to all of us.
