Entrepreneurship is glorified by the media on a daily basis. We see millionaires with hot babes, fast cars and beachfront homes. Upon seeing these things, people become envious of the life entrepreneurs have.
Everyone automatically thinks that entrepreneurship is an easy ticket to money and fame, but they’re quite wrong. There is a dark side to entrepreneurship that many don’t realise until way later.
In this article, I’m going to share the dark untold side of entrepreneurship:
The Broke Period
Here’s what really sucks about entrepreneurship. You either make no money in the beginning or the money you do make has to be put back into the business. Instead of actually making more money than a job, you end up making less while putting in more effort.
Passion should be guiding you, but pay-checks do pay the bills. Many people don’t realise that they won’t have the comfort of receiving a pay-check at the end of each month and may go months or years without ever getting paid.
You are the sole provider for your business and for yourself as an entrepreneur. It looks pretty on paper, but be prepared to really hustle if you want to survive the long haul. Comfort, monthly pay-checks and short days are a thing of the past if you choose to become an entrepreneur.
