The only people who truly understand entrepreneurship are entrepreneurs. Until you've taken the leap yourself, it can be difficult to appreciate the challenge that awaits.
Entrepreneurs know that building a business can be a lonely journey—because they’ve been through it.
Entrepreneurs understand the focus and determination needed to create a company from the ground up.
But entrepreneurs also know the incomparable joy that comes from watching an idea grow into a flourishing business, knowing that they created their own success.
You might be the only one of your friends or family that owns a business. Each step along your journey presents obstacles and forks in the road which can be hard to navigate, especially if you feel like you don’t have anyone to ask for help.
