Running your own business
When it comes to owning a business, here are my findings.
First,If anybody told you owning a business or being an entrepreneur was easy, then they just lied to you.
Thumbs up to all the entrepreneurs out there who feel like giving up, but keep pushing through every day.
We must agree that social media makes entrepreneurship or doing your own business, look cool and easy. And everyone wants to be like that. Live life on their own terms, take a long vacation to any city of their choice and just enjoy.
Anyway, I am sorry to inform you that such idea of entrepreneurship is totally wrong.
In the first stages of your business as an entrepreneur, the truth is you are the manager, the technician and the entrepreneur. You get to play all the three roles if your business must succeed.
At this point, your business is like a baby and you are like a nursing mother. You are the business and the business is you. If you take a single vacation, by the time you are back, you are most likely to meet it in shambles.
The first stages of entrepreneurship require a lot of work, sacrifice, late nights and tests. I believe life test all real entrepreneurs. If you survive the first stage of entrepreneurship as a business owner, then you are good to go.However, while some survive the first stage of entrepreneurship and move on to the next, some barely cross through the first stage , while the rest remain stagnant and refuse to move on to the next phase.
So before you quit your well paying job to join the band wagon of entrepreneurs, take your time, think deep and meditate. Ask yourself if you really have what it takes and if you can withstand the rainy days and go hungry for days because that’s the hard truth about entrepreneurship no one will tell you.
