Here are some excerpts from a recent interview with Elijah Medge by entrepreneurship blogger and small business consultant, Lauren Levy.

LL: What do you consider to be your greatest achievement thus far?

Elijah Medge: My greatest achievement has been positively impacting so many people, and being the reason why 15 people have had opportunities to start their own businesses. By investing my time and money into these individuals, I have had the privilege of seeing them develop into confident and successful entrepreneurs. This has been truly rewarding.

LL: What popular entrepreneurial or career advice do you disagree with and why?

Elijah Medge: I strongly disagree with the advice to "always keep your options open". To me, that's synonymous with saying "never commit to anything". I feel that keeping options open is the best way to avoid the process of overcoming challenges. If the advice instead was "focus on the option at hand and make the most of it" then people would concentrate on what they're doing and put in 100%, rather then being distracted by the next best thing.
