#68 The unglamorous side of starting your own business
We are firm believers that entrepreneurs are change-makers. We're movers and shakers and we can literally change the world with our ideas and sheer drive to make an impact.
We're also cheerleaders for anyone who want to start their own business, however, we do think that there are certain expectations new entrepreneurs have that causes way more pain than is necessary.
In this week's episode we talk about the unglamorous side of starting your own business and how to keep it real while believing in the impossible.
We talked about:
The crucial thing you must remember when you hear those "rags to riches" stories
The "build it and they will come" mentality that crush many entrepreneurial dreams
Our expectations about business and how to keep things real while believing in the impossible
The skill of being comfortable in the discomfort
Discomfort does not mean something is wrong
Where certainty and safety comes from
When it feels like you're spinning and not making any real progress
How far are you willing to go?
When to call it quits and the vision test
The effort and time you spend on your business vs the money you receive in return
The Value Bank and mastering your entrepreneurial skills
Lightbulb moment: Success lies on the other side of your discomfort.
