I think entrepreneurs have a few loose screws and are masochistic freaks. I’m an entrepreneur and it’s a super-blessing to wake up everyday and chase my dream, but it’s also balls hard when things get tough. And with so much ambiguity, it’s easy to sometimes be confused about what things you should try next to move your business forward.
The one thing I’m not confused about though is the need to have a supportive spouse (or partner) when you’re starting a business; without this in place I can’t imagine how one would face the challenge of being an entrepreneur. I’m fortunate that my wife is a franchise owner herself so she can relate when I am struggling with some issues. I am so proud of the waves she is making in the wedding dress industry. If you have a similar drive to my wife, you may wish to visit this page to learn more about franchise opportunities.
