Life lessons of an entrepreneur
It's been 2 years since I gave teaching up full time for my passion fuelled business of life coaching and 3 years since I started building this beautiful business and I have no regrets. The past 3 years has been exciting, stressful (at times) yet truly incredible. There is so much I have learnt since I began equipping myself with the skills to make this business possible. Today I wanted to share part of this beautiful rollercoaster ride of been on.
Experiences of the entrepreneur
99% of people won’t understand why you do what you do, in fact most will think you are some sort of crazy, delusional being.
99.9% of people will encourage you to ‘get a day job’ – you know one that you are good at but not super passionate about.
Your peers won’t understand your work ethic unless they are also an entrepreneur.
Your courage will piss people off but it’s got nothing to do with them.
There is a thing such as good debt.
You are happy to sacrifice a hell of a lot to see your vision through, a sacrifice most don’t comprehend.
You won’t always know where the funds will come from but they will come in.
You will develop the epitome of a love hate relationship with technology.
