We're Entrepreneurs...But We're Human Too
When you look in the magazines or see television shows depicting entrepreneurs, there's this sense of advernture, a boldness that only a passionate, driven entrepreneur has. We see Cuban, Branson, and even Oprah, and we think "wow, those are strong people". And they are. But all too often, we try to hold ourselves up to these images stating "big girls and boys don't cry". You're not allowed to show vulnerability or any sign of weakness because it's frowned upon. Then we look at the alarming amounts of entrepreneurs who commit suicide. We think on the outside look like everything is great and we talk about how successful they are. But on the inside, they are in pain. We're taught to hide the pain, push it away beause we've got work to do. In today's show, I'll be focusing on the emotional side of entrepreneurship. No matter how successful you are, you still need an emotional outlet when things get tough.
