Being an entrepreneur is one of the hardest careers paths to endure. But, if you’re mind is set right, It can be one of the most rewarding and exciting careers.
Being an entrepreneur means your opportunities are endless. You’re in control of your future and you make it what you will. Part of this process means you will meet so many great, like-minded people and grow a fantastic, global network of colleagues and friends.
I remember thinking the first time I sat at the desk of my first job – this isn’t for me. I spent 3 years learning everything I could, reminding myself everyday that I would venture out on my own one day.
There’s also a downside to being an entrepreneur. It’s tough. Very tough. You will face more failures than you could imagine, and this is something you need to mentally prepare for. Over the years, i’ve seen huge successes, but also inconsolable lows.
Enjoy the process
It’s lonely at times.
Until you grow your business and are able to take on staff – it’s going to be a lonely slog. I failed to get out from day to day and spent 12-15 hours in front of a computer forgetting to eat most of the time. You have to take those breaks, get down to the gym, go take a walk – your brain game will thank you for it.
Don’t get complacent
When your business starts to take off and you see success after all the hard work, then it’s the time to 10x your efforts. I’ve seen it time and time again, even in my business – once you take your foot off the gas, things can quickly turn against you. Always have new goals and achievements to work to. This keeps you growing.
