Not a lot of people are going to have the courage to take that step into the world of being an entrepreneur. If you are one of the rare few who do, you should know that the rewards are high indeed. Three out of four millionaires in the USA are entrepreneurs like Com Mirza, which says SOMETHING about how successful you can be if you play your cards right. Now, it isn’t always bubblegum and happiness in the world of the entrepreneur and the startup. There are a ton of different risks to be taken and they are probably going to mess with you more than just a little bit if you take them and they don’t pay off. This can be in terms of your bank account or even your mental health. However, the rewards are high indeed if they do pull through.
You May Lose The People You Love
Another thing you may have to deal with whether you are a Caucasian, Pakistani or Muslim entrepreneur is the lack of support from your family. Too many people stick to the traditional way of thinking: that you will only succeed if you work a normal job with stable, steady paychecks. This is a lie, but it is one that everyone seems to believe. If you have a family who cares for you above all else, they will stick with your throughout your struggles as an entrepreneur. If they don’t, you probably never needed them anyway. Remember that the lack of a stable source of income could drive many people away from you.
Long hours on the job are also going to become quite normal. While these would typically result in you being paid for overtime work, an entrepreneur doesn’t get this type of leeway. You are going to be alone and working hard all night for no immediate monetary gain. Make sure you are ready for all of these challenges that you are bound to face before you call it quits on your old job. It isn’t for everyone.
