Man, this pisses me off!I am speaking solely on productocracy type businesses. Not the just pay the bills type of businesses.
The startup culture is all about, rags to riches, zero to hero, I work so hard, etc.
I am starting to realize that entrepreneurship is actually a priviledge thing. Hear me out. If an average income person wants to build a business, they gotta make huge sacrifices for the time being. Just because most if not all productocracy businesses require substantial capital and time to get it going.
A wealthy person starting a business, doesn’t have to cut back much at all and continue living life as is without making sacrifices because they got capital.
Poor person trying to start a business? Full on cut everything out of life to even have a sliver of a chance.
So pretty anything that requires significant capital is a priviledge thing, due to the fact that those with money don’t have to sacrifice. Just hate how the startup culture is all about, everyone has an equal chance.
Edit: Still working on my business regardless though.
If this is your mindset, then you have miles to go before understanding entrepreneurship. Have you even read TMF? Do you know MJ's story, or the stories of dozens of other Forum members who are successful entrepreneurs?
Yes, many successful startups attracted money, but HOW did they do it? They did it by being smart as f@ck, working hard as f@ck and networking and pitching well as f@ck to even get the attention of the angels, VC's, etc.
There are two ways to have the tallest building on the block. You can focus on building the tallest building, or you can focus on tearing down every other building. People who use words like "privilege" are more focused on tearing down others than building themselves up. It's whiny, weak and a symptom of unconscious incompetence. Even worse, it's a self-destructive waste of one's time, energy and ultimately, one's life.
Remove that word from your vocabulary and get to f-ing work!
