Now back to the business of explaining entrepeneurship in 60 seconds. Here’s the transcript below:
So, first thing you should understand about entrepreneurship is that it’s a verb which means you have to get out there and do it, rather than sitting around reading about it.
You also have to understand that there’s loads of entrepreneurship advice and you have to take it all with a pinch of salt because at the end of the day you are the expert on your business, you’re the one who has spent the most time on it.
Understand that your life isn’t entrepreneurship. You can very easily lose track of your own personal identity. Just remember that you and the business are two separate things. You should strive to work smarter and not harder and you should also strive for progress and not perfection.
You should also accept you cannot control everything, you can’t always control the outcomes so don’t beat yourself up.
Finally stay in contact with friends and family because you will need them one day when morale is running low.
