Play the long game

There is no get rich quick scheme. Its hard. It will take time. It will take focused intensity.

This is why most people aren’t able to stay healthy. It takes focused intensity over time. This is why most people are in debt. It takes focused intensity over time. This is why most people don’t win at entrepreneurship and 90% of businesses fail.

Ask any social media influencer or professional YouTuber or blogger what it took for them to get a following and start winning. In most cases it took YEARS. Everyone wants to be an online influencer but it rarely happens because people get discouraged when they are 6 months in and it turns from fun to work and there is no end in sight. They aren’t willing to keep at it for another two years with no pleasure and profit and fame.

If you really want to buck the 9-5 and start your own company and design your own life it takes time.

You have to make a 5 year plan. You have to swallow your pride and get out and work. You have to cut all the distractions and hobbies out of your life temporarily. You have to cut out fun temporarily.

It will be fun and exciting for a while. 3 months or so. Then it becomes work. Most people give up. If you are still hitting targets and gaining momentum keep at it. Stay the course and you’ll win.

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.
