Life as an Entrepreneur

BY BOB SHENEFELT

 

Being an entrepreneur is not easy. It's exciting; it's risk-taking; it's scary. It's a lot like being a teenager, venturing out onto our own and trying things, and bucking the rules, and creating new systems, and following our guts, and yet it also can be lonely. Therefore, forums in associations like YEO and YPO, where it's a peer group, is such a vital way to feel like you're not alone, get support, and have like-minded individuals, who can shorten the learning curve. So, use groups like this to get things out of your head. As Author Neal Walsch said, To be sane is to be out of your mind. Get dreams, thoughts, fears out of your head and out of your heart, and share it with people who can share their learning experiences and give honest feedback.
