Going Against The Grain

So Why Do It?

So why would anyone pick the path of being an entrepreneur.

I think it comes down to one of two reasons.

You’re either a lazy fuck who doesn’t want to be held accountable to anyone else, thinks that the work day starts at 10 am and refuses to wear a tie. You’re not an entrepreneur, you are a hack. You just cant find anyone to hire you on a permanent basis because you’re such a lazy bastard. Calling yourself an entrepreneur is a joke and an insult to actual entrepreneurs.

or

You see an opportunity to solve a problem and go after it, regardless of your personal means. Speaking from experience, I can say that the biggest rush I get is not when someone buys our product the first time. Its when they buy it the second, third and fourth time…. I think you get the picture. Whatever it is that you do, make or sell, no matter how trivial, trite or small it may be, has had an impact on someone else’s life to the point that they place a monetary value on it.
