Over the last week I’ve spoken to a handful of friends that I trust and respect about their experiences building/growing companies. All of this conversation spurred by challenges they’re dealing with related to their enterprise or decisions I’m thinking over for StartupMIG.
All this talk brings me back to ground zero: entrepreneurship is goddamn difficult.
Getting it done isn’t as easy as folks make it out to be and even just getting the minimum done to be effective can leave you as broken as the next guy that exited for $1 Billion or the one that just stopped because it seemed like a good time to stop.
Building and scaling companies is a monumental task. I’ve got a deep appreciation for folks that go out on a limb and commit themselves entirely to this mission.
