Being an entrepreneur, you start perceiving time differently. There’s work time and there’s investing in future work time. Any day that goes by that isn’t spent doing either is a lost day.
Last year was my first year as an entrepreneur. My background in law and past career as a lawyer have taught me a great deal about businesses. Just not how to run one. That is something you learn and teach yourself. There’s no mentors or partners guiding you along the way. It’s you working through your trials and errors, until you form a foundation resembling a business. Before you know it it’s up and running and you find yourself scrambling for every free minute you can find.
At one point you realize a solid business is not built on monetary grounds – it shouldn’t be. It’s about working on your craft and building a network of meaningful and sustainable relationships. And having a vision of what your life’s work should be.
Being an entrepreneur is like running a marathon. One without a finish line. But you want to keep on running.
