Read Millionaire Fastlane
- Nov 25, 2020
The toughest part for me so far is getting my mom to understand it. She sees me working all the time and wants me to take days off and stuff. But early on...you really can't / shouldn't take days off. I'm putting of the pleasure of today so I can be free tomorrow.Hey,
I am really wondering, what is so hard about entrepreneurship?
What did you really struggle with?
Was it getting started? Getting financed? Making the product? Selling it? Administrative tasks? Finding people to hire? Marketing? Was it figuring it out?
Was it the whole process? Was it finding an idea? Was it the volume of work? Or its actual complexity? Was it believing you would make it? Was it not giving up?
Please don't say it was everything. There must have been tasks that were harder than others.
I read Bezos and Branson biographies and these guys were working a lot, sure, but it's not like they were crying everyday on their way to the office, which is the feeling I get when people like Peter Thiel say "building a company is like eating broken glass while staring into the abyss".
Is it really everyone's experience?
PS: please don't try to discourage me, call me ignorant, gullible or anything else, or tell me "you'll see" in a condescending manner. I am asking a genuine question. I obviously don't know much, and so it would be great to hear from others that did this before me. Thank you : )
