I just read the article “The 11 Harsh Realities of Being an Entrepreneur.” Some points in the downright depressing blog I agree with. Some I don’t. And, at other times, the “harsh realities” of being a small business owner has more to do with perspective.
Here are my Facts About Being an Entrepreneur…
1 It never turns out like you think it will.
2 Everything takes a least twice as long to complete.
3 You can’t do it all yourself. You need a team, even if you are a home-based business owner.
4 There is no such thing as an overnight success.
5 You will make many mistakes.
6 Change happens constantly.
7 By the time it is perfected, it’s out dated.
Some people aren’t cut out to be a small business owner; others won’t know deep satisfaction, regardless of what is deemed success unless they are. Know yourself and you’ll have a better handle on whether the entrepreneurial career is the right one for you.
