Entrepreneurship Is Bullshit
I know those words will make some cringe, however the truth is we treat starting your own business too much like a magical unicorn that shits gold. The media and even gurus will tell you about all the self made millionaires and billionaires. We are all self made. Even then not everyone is meant to take the same path. Not to mention they leave out something very important. Entrepreneurship is pain and sacrifice and heartache, those overnight successes toiled for years.
I have been an entrepreneur for about a decade now and I can tell you from experience that magical gold shitting unicorns are not real. We are not all meant to be entrepreneurs either, too often we hate our job or life and decide to start a business with no rational or detailed thought into the matter.
Most entrepreneurs don’t make over 50,000 dollars a year and many end up running back to a day job and never trying again. Does this mean no one should, of course not but you need a clear concise plan and vision before you even think of beginning the journey. Also be ready to execute and be ready to push yourself more than you may ever have.
Here are some other words of advice to keep in mind:
Know your niche
Your niche will tell you specifically how to target your audience and potential customers and how they can be helped with their pain points.
Map out a business strategy
Know what you want to accomplish and write down clear objectives for your business. Have the 1st year mapped out in at least a rough outline.
Trust your gut
Do not be afraid to get outside help but do not hesitate to trust your instincts either. You need to make difficult decisions and you will have to learn become accustomed to them.
