There’s a lot that goes into being an entrepreneur, but the fulfillment that comes along with creating something from nothing is unmatched. I believe one of the keys to life and happiness is progress. Being an entrepreneur gives me the ultimate sense of progress because I am building something on my own, with no one pushing me to do it. Every morning I have to choose to get up and work with no salary and no boss.
This forces me to use my willpower and my desires to make success happen every single day. When you don’t have a salary, don’t have a boss, and don’t know when your endeavors will pay off, it makes the progress you experience and the success you achieve so much more worth it because you did it on your own.
This sense of fulfillment and progress is what makes being an entrepreneur so great. As my businesses have grown, and I have learned how to flow with the ups and downs of entrepreneurship, I have learned what it takes and why I wouldn’t have it any other way.
