Today, I gave a call to a good friend of mine.
We chatted for a while about the financial sector, and we started down the path of what was going on in my life with my online accounting gig. Needless to say, a life of an entrepreneur is not a bed of roses as many would like to believe. It’s hard work, a lot of sweat, tears, and heartache. But many would let you know that they wouldn’t trade it anything for the world. Even when times are tough. And strangely enough, the average age of your entrepreneur is actually closer to forty to fifty. I suppose experience in the workforce has something to do with it although the Internet itself has changed that for the better.
But what really got me was the next thing he told me over the phone.
“You’re doing right by your business. You’re putting your heart and soul into it and you are looking after your customers. That’s what counts.”
It’s funny that one of my uncle’s also told me something similar a while back as well as members of family that knew about the startup. It’s always good to hear praise that’s not prompted and people that support you from the sidelines. Because, when times get bad, those are the comments that you can rely on to help you break through the clouds.
