#163 – It’s a beautiful time to be an entrepreneur

Show notes from Episode #163 of the Sweaty Startup Podcast.

Something feels different now.

People are losing their jobs and their businesses, and those that are still in place are suffering. Storage Squad is on pace for a horrible year already, full of mania and frenzy just to pull together the deals and revenue that they can. Yet it’s making Nick feel alive.

A lot of change is going on right now, and change signals opportunity for entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs by definition create value, which means when your city and community is impacted in the aftermath of this pandemic, there will be opportunity to offer something that they need.

If you thrive in an uncertain and dynamic environment, this is your time. We love sports and drama that keeps us on the edge of our seats, and you can chase that excitement while getting paid to help the people around you. If you can start a lean business right now delivering a valuable service, then there’s a lot to be excited about.

This quarantine provides an opportunity for self-reflection, but it can also provide a platform for you to think about the time ahead and how you can grasp the opportunity that will be waiting for you.

About Me

I started the Sweaty Startup in December of 2018 because I believe the Shark Tank and Tech Crunch culture is ruining the real spirit of low-risk entrepreneurship.
