Entrepreneurship is tough no matter how you spin it. Whether you’re just getting started or you’re a wily veteran, the entrepreneurial journey can be a rollercoaster ride. In many ways, entrepreneurship reminds me of wrestling, the sport I competed in for more than a decade.
Like wrestling, entrepreneurship can seem like an individual sport. Success, in many cases, depends on your drive to succeed and the ability to push forward when others are telling you to run for the exit. While most entrepreneurs don’t have someone on the other side trying to rip off their head, starting and operating a business can at times feel like the whole world is trying to keep you from getting to the next day. It’s a tough deal, but it’s worth it if you keep practicing.
