… So often being a entrepreneur might seem like a endless story of
…WALKING ON SUNSHINE. You finally got the freedom to do what you want- when you like. You are your own boss- You can work on your passion. What can possibly go wrong?
1# YOUR WALLET MIGHT BE A BIT MORE EMPTY
2#YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF WORKING IN THE OFFICE FOR HOURS, AND I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT A DESK OFFICE- I AM TALKING ABOUT A CAFE
3#YOU WILL RISK TO GET ALONE WITH YOUR OWN THOUGHTS FOR A WHILE, FOR A LONG WHILE.
4#SOMETIMES YOU WILL BE SO OBSESSED WITH A PROJECT THAT YOU LOSE INTEREST FOR EVERYTHING ELSE AROUND YOU.
5#OTHER TIMES YOU WILL EXPERIENCE TO LOSE THE DRIVE OR MOTIVATION FOR A PERIOD- YOU JUST SIT THERE WITHOUT THE FEELING ABLE TO TAKE ACTION. YOU MIGHT STREAM A TV-EPISODE INSTEAD.
6#YOU MIGHT GET CAUGHT UP IN YOUR PART-TIME JOB.(“SO WAS THIS MENT TO BE A FULL-TIME OR A PART TIME THING?”)
7#JUST GET USED TO PARENTS THAT TELLS YOU “WE SUPPORT YOU NO MATTER WHAT”, BUT STILL EACH DAY WILL TRY TO REMIND YOU ON HAVING A PLAN B, ALSO KNOWN AS EDUCATION.
8#YOU FIND YOURSELF READING ARTICLES, VIDEOS ABOUT MARKETING, SALES AND INNOVATION ALL THE TIME. YOU MIGHT LISTEN MORE TO TEDTALKS THAN YOU HEAR YOUR OWN VOICE.
9#...JUST GET USED TO PITCH. AT LEAST BE PREPARED FOR A DAY OF EXPLAINING THE SAME PITCH OF YOUR CONCEPT 15TIMES DURING A NETWORKING EVENT THAT LAST 1,5HOUR.
10#PEOPLE WILL ASK YOU A LOT OF CRITICAL QUESTIONS, DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY HATE YOUR IDEA- THEIR CURIOUS..OKAY, SOMETIMES THEY MIGHT DISLIKE IT.
11#YOU FIND YOURSELF IN CONVERSATION AND GETS EASILY MORE BORED OF TALKING ABOUT SUPERFICIAL THINGS LIKE MATERIAL THINGS OR PEOPLE-DRAMA. “HELLO, YOU COULD HAVE TALKED ABOUT OR WORKED ON SAVING THE WORLD INSTEAD…”
12# YOU MIGHT THINK THAT WATCHING A MOVIE IS A WASTE OF TIME, WHEN YOU COULD HAVE BEEN WORKING INSTEAD.
13#JUST ACCEPT THAT YOU CAN BE A BIT WEIRDER THAN THE AVERAGE PERSON, BUT YOUR STILL HUMAN, RIGHT(….RIIIGHT!?)
14# FORGET NORMAL SLEEPING HABITS, IT DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE…APPARENTLY
…okay, I lied. I ended up sharing 14things. Each day is not always I story of walking on sunshine. Its rain, its sunshine, its snowy, its windy and so on. But those days makes you appreciate the ones with sunshine more. It personally keeps me going- developing a progress. Slow progress is better than no progress at all.
