Being an entrepreneur and running your own business is one of the hardest things you can do. It will tax every fiber of your patience, your finances, your family, your health, and even your sanity. That’s why it’s priceless. A self-motivation and self-explored ability to dig deep and keep going even when everyone tells you to stop or when people cease to believe are one of the critical things that separate those who succeed from those who litter the pages of start-up history.
Passion need not be specific. It can be a trait of one’s personality. That’s why “passionate people” are priceless. Once you bring passion into the equation, the playing field immediately shifts. They have it as they want it because for them their passion trumps their skills.
Regardless of what you’re working on a day-to-day, you’ll constantly be interacting with folks who have other functional roles and these skills will rub off on you and make you better-rounded, with a deeper understanding of how businesses are built.
I wish you Sucess! Chase the vision, not the money; the money will end up following you.”
