You're Going Through Hell But Everything Will Be Ok

You're Going Through Hell But Everything Will Be Ok

It's 10:30 PM. As I type this, I've finally calmed my youngest daughter from a bed wetting. I'm looking at my bank account which is low on funds and listening to Senator Al Franken give his final speech from the Senate floor. I could list a whole slew of problems that I'd love to post on this entry but will hold myself from letting frustration get the best of myself.

Every entrepreneur will face hell. If you've started a business, I'm safely assuming that you've understood the risks of starting one. Whatever problems you are having at the moment, it can be tackled. If not, the business must be stopped or be put on hold.

If you feel that you can go on, then maybe the problem is not as insurmountable.

The path of entrepreneurship creates problems on top of life's regular problems. Hills are higher. Friends will be asking if you've seen the newest blockbuster movie, comment about your favorite sports team's latest move or show off the coolest gadget they got last week. Don't condemn them. These people are simply enjoying life. They're walking to the nearest park while you're out hoping to find something in the dessert. This is the path you've chosen.

Despite the problems, politics and knockdowns you'll get from day-to-day, everything will be alright.

If you're reading this, you have your vision. Whatever has not killed you thus far would've killed you by now - so congratulations. Welcome to Hell.

If you're going through hell, keep going.
-Winston Churchill
