The most important goals you set for yourself as a startup entrepreneur will take time to achieve business stardom.
That’s the ugly truth.
At some point, you are going to feel frustrated. Things won’t always work at out well. I know this because I’ve started many startups in the past four years.
And the truth is this: It doesn’t take a geeky person to succeed in a business, what it takes is a highly motivated person. If you aren’t motivated, you won’t be moved to carry the startup where it should go.
Enthusiasm is the fuel of any business. With motivation you aren’t depressed when your stats are discouraging, you aren’t paranoid when clients don’t come, and you aren’t moved by the fact that you don’t have any business connections.
Am I saying that I was never discouraged or depressed when I started some of my businesses? No. But the difference between those who close business and those who stay is that the latter picked himself up no matter how many times he fell.
I did that a lot of times. You can too, and I can show you how I did mine.
