The truth about Entrepreneurship, and how to win at it.

The truth about Entrepreneurship, and how to win at it.

Always be Reading, Always be Learning. That is the no.1 rule to win at this game called entrepreneurship.

Many people think the picture of entrepreneurship is that of Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk or some rich founder of some unicorn. That is very seldom the case. It is for most, if not all first time entrepreneurs the same: hard slog, 7 day work weeks, stupid hours, no or very little financial rewards, stress, learn, stumble, verge of break point, ecstasy, concur the world, why are we doing this again? Screw-it I’m finding a job, world domination, we have it, fuckit, let’s call it a day, see you guys tomorrow. And then you do it all over again tomorrow, and the next day and the next day, till you exit.

Then it starts all over again, you are an entrepreneur after all. It’s the toughest career choice you ever make, but after a few years of trying and learning, I love it and will not change it for the world.
