The one thing we know for sure is that Entrepreneurship is a lonely journey. Not a lot of people can relate to the trials and challenges that entrepreneurs face on a daily basis. And there are even fewer people who can give good advice that relates to your situation.
You can’t really talk to friends or family members, because they just don’t have the same frame of reference, so unless you go out an actively seek people who are aligned with you, it’s going to stay very lonely.
Thankfully, there are a lot more entrepreneurs around the world than you would imagine, and as such, there are a lot of people just like you, with similar stories and similar challenges. When your friend just doesn’t get why you would rather stay at your computer at 9:30 pm working on a proposal instead of going out and blowing off some steam, a fellow entrepreneur would not only understand, but they would also encourage you to get that proposal done before going to bed tonight!
So thinking about this, I started putting together a small list of different types of support that entrepreneurs can find out there. And the list kept getting bigger and bigger – so big in fact that I decided to split it into two separate podcast episodes.
In this first section, we will talk about the different types of individual support you can find out there as an entrepreneur, and in the second episode, we will talk about all the different organizations that are out there supporting entrepreneurs.
So if you haven’t heard much about masterminds, if you don’t know the difference between a coach and a mentor, and if you thought that the only type of membership you can get was at a gym…. listen up, cause I’ve got a whole lot of good news for you!
Have a listen to this week’s podcast and let me know what kind of support is your favorite and which one you are currently using.
