It’s Sunday, but you’re still slogging away at your laptop.
You’ve been so busy fretting about all the things you need to do that you can’t recall the last time you enjoyed a good meal with your family.
You haven’t slept well in weeks.
How long more can you do this?
It’s lonely because nobody has a clue where your startup is going. All the ideas that seemed so brilliant still haven’t quite taken off.
While you’re anxiously trying to build something new, your savings deplete faster than you can say ”entrepreneurship.”
You thought you were ready for the long working hours, the isolation and near-zero profits.
But now you can’t help wondering if you’re mistaken.
A version of this article was published on e27.co. Woohoo!
There’s something about you that inspires me.
Your vision to change the way people live.
Your desire to make things faster.
All for a bunch of strangers who will probably never utter a word of thanks.
Meanwhile, the people who know you raise eyebrows at your ideas.
They’re boasting a stable, 4-figure monthly income or more as you try to convince them that this is what you want to do for the rest of your life when you don’t even know when your first (or next) dollar will be.
Who in their right mind would choose to be an entrepreneur?
