What Nobody Tells You About Entrepreneurship | Rob Mastrantonio | Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship is an interesting journey that many people start and very few finish. The idea of being your own boss is probably what attracts many people to the world of entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of information about entrepreneurship that is not shared with the public.
Below are some of the things no one tells you about entrepreneurship :
It is the epitome of personal development
Entrepreneurship is not all rosy. There will be a point along the journey when you feel like the world around you is crumbling, and nothing seems to work. That’s the time to gather the courage, look yourself in the mirror, and promise to walk a new path.
Entrepreneurship is not for the faint-hearted. It is the ultimate journey in self-development and personal growth.
It is a very lonely journey
When people think about entrepreneurship, they imagine a lot of great things, such as a founder with several investments and offices across the country. But the reality is quite different. The journey of an entrepreneur is very unpredictable. You need to prepare yourself for the worst and the best of times. Think of the hardest situations you can find yourself in and imagine how you will come out of them.
You have to be crazily self-motivated
Entrepreneurship can greatly challenge the confidence you have always had in life. When you are employed, you don’t have to worry a lot about the success or failure of the company. But things are different when you are an entrepreneur. You have to constantly think about how to grow the company. Any failure means there’s something that you did wrong or failed to do right.
There is a price you must be willing to pay
Creating something from scratch requires a lot of energy, time, and effort. Entrepreneurship is all about creating something out of nothing. It takes three times the ordinary amount of time, energy, and effort.
It exposes you to how little you are
Entrepreneurship will reveal your ignorance in a big way. It will bring to your attention a lot of things that you don’t have an idea about. The entrepreneurship journey will humble you and help you realize that you are forever a student of life.
