I have been ‘entrepreneuring’ the last year with Stocktwits. I can’t fully describe the feeling, but entrepreneuring is an intense way of life.
Are we pushing something up a hill?
Am we rolling downhill?
Should we run like hell?
Should we slowly build a ‘moat’?
I know how it feels…same as always…out of control!
There really is no playbook for entrepreneurs and if there was, I likely would not have read it. My playbook is to talk to other successful entrepreneurs about how it felt along the way, especially at key inflection points of their businesses evolution. I attend other board meetings to see how they are run. I take every sales meeting to see how our product is perceived. My playbook is to soak in the ‘whole experience’. It may be the last one and it may be the first of 100.
The money vs time dilemma is your nemesis that must be constantly monitored.
Each entrepreneur is different, but if you have started a business and are at times feeling lost, confused, nautious and overwhelmed, you are entrepreneuring.
I tip my hat to you.
