WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ENTRENEURSHIP
Even when your business is not doing amazing, act like it is. Smile. Perception matters. Perception, in fact, matters more than reality. The hard truth is that there will always be days when you have to use every ounce of your being to put on a smile to tell the world that everything’s OK. If you do, one day you’ll wake up and everything really will be OK.
You are not your own boss.
Awesome businesses are built by listening to the people who make the business entity run. Anytime one of your people calls you “the boss,” quickly remind them that you are directed by the team. You are the one employee who has about 300 bosses who help lead the ship.
In the building stages of a business, seeking work-life balance is futile. Work will become your life. When you are at home working or getting ready to turn in at night, you’ll be thinking about your business. You’ll wake in the middle of the night worrying that you should have handled something better or jumped on an opportunity faster. There is no 9-to-5 to building a business, only 24/7. Yes, you will spend time at home and even on vacation, but you will always be on, thinking about your business.
