With the advancement of technology, now more than ever, many individuals are throwing up a website and going all in on their business idea. From opening up a store on Shopify or Etsy, or setting up a Wordpress blog and selling their services as a coach or consultant, with technology making it so easy for anyone to throw their hat in the ring and call themselves a company, the barrier to entry is almost nothing at this point.
However, that does not mean that running a business has gotten much easier. In fact, quite the contrary as there is now more competition to deal with. But the biggest challenge most young entrepreneurs are facing is the fact that they are ill equipped to handle the pressures that come with running such an endeavor. The fact of the matter is that yes, technology has made it much easier for people to start a business. But it has done nothing to help people deal with the day to day struggles that come with this which is why more than half of all businesses fail in the first year.
In the end, the most successful entrepreneurs who make it to the black are those who understand how to overcome adversity and know what it takes to make a company viable: hard work. Yes it is true that you need a good idea and strategy to make your company successful. And you also need good people around you. But in the end, one of the most critical factors is an indomitable will and the drive and hunger to push through challenging times.
So if you want to ensure that you are one of those businesses that make it, make sure you have the right mindset in place. Here are 15 quotes that will help you through this journey:
