17 Things Only Entrepreneurs Understand
Take baby steps
You don’t need to do everything at once, but taking small steps continuously is key to maintaining the momentum needed to get you to opening. Sometimes the first steps can feel daunting, but if you break down the steps into more manageable chunks, and try and get a few things crossed off your list every week, you’ll feel much more in control.
To find the best opportunity for you, think about where you like to spend your time
Do you dream of starting a business, but don’t know where to start?
A lot of the best startups are the result of someone’s passion. These people have rejected the idea that your job should be a 9-5 drudgery, and have funnelled their energy into creating their own workspace.
These entrepreneurs usually have a very easy time hiring staff. Their enthusiasm is infectious!
You won’t always have a strict work/life balance
This is a dealbreaker for a lot of new entrepreneurs, but it’s important to realize that especially at the beginning, you may not have much of a work/life balance. Evenings get eaten away quickly when you’re the only employee on the books.
Even after your endeavor is in stable condition, the temptation to micro-manage can be overwhelming.
