FreedomStarting a business does not give you freedom.
Starting a business does not give you freedom.
Being the CEO or leader is not less work.
If you want to escape the “corporate world” because you want more you time than starting a company is not your best path.
Starting a company is incredibly hard.
You’ll likely fail. You’ll likely disappoint your team and everyone you tell about your product.
It is hard.
Be cautiously optimistic with yourself, and, more than that, be real with yourself.
I ask anyone with an idea two things:
– Why are you doing what you are doing? (aka what is your goal?)
– Which assumptions are related to your product and what are you doing to test them?
Those are a great way to clear things up.
