The Guide to Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur
Entrepreneurship is a steep and slippery slope. The many hats you wear as an entrepreneur 24/7 could easily weigh you down. Gear up for the entrepreneurial journey with this guide to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
As the author of 126 Steps to Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur: The Entrepreneurship Fad and the Dark Side of Going Solo that paints a different portrait of the startup ecosystem and the reality of “being your own boss”, I provide a no-BS take on the startup world and challenge the fad around becoming an overnight success while projecting the reality for starting entrepreneurs during their first 6-18 months in the game.
Now that I am leading a multinational consultancy, I want to reveal the reality of exchanging a 40-hour workweek and a steady paycheck for 80-100 hours at the office for years to come, grinding through the struggles of:
- generating sales
- managing staff
- juggling accounting and legal
- designing scalable processes

Entrepreneurship vs. Intrapreneurship
Entrepreneurship isn’t a 9-to-5 job that comes with the comfort of family and friends time in the evenings, or traveling and watching TV over the weekends. It’s an effort that usually requires a massive commitment and a multidisciplinary approach for handling dozens of activities at the same time, from branding through technology to accounting.
