Starting a business is hard. It always looks easy because you see people succeeding, but it is really hard.
There is a mental component to being an entrepreneur. There are days I want to give up. There are days I feel great. What happens on those low days though? Let me tell you....
1. I can reach out to my tribe. Surround yourself with like minded individuals so you have people to talk to. You aren't in this alone, and having people to help pick you up is really important.
2. Personal development podcasts and books. Download audiobooks, podcasts, books, whatever it is and keep them handy. When you are driving to work, cooking, walking to coffee, whatever it is, put something on and let it help pick you up. Knowing you aren't alone comes in multiple formats, and in order to succeed you need to have multiple avenues to get "pick-me-ups".
I just spent the weekend with a group of 30+ like-minded entrepreneurs. We were all there to share and help each other. No one wants to get the other people to fail, we all want to help each other succeed. Have people to go to when you need it and you will be golden. If you don't have that tribe of people, feel free to reach out to me.
My name's Amanda and this is a blog about my adventure creating an online Physical Therapy based practice. I will share resources and updates on the process I am doing in order to hopefully give others an idea of where to start in the future.
