It's Okay To Have Doubt As An Entrepreneur

I wanted to share this little nugget I found in my diary from 2005 of a typical day after building my company for just two years. It’s now 13 years later and my company is bigger than ever but it was the daily emotions like this I had to battle.

As an entrepreneur you are going to have doubt. You’ll feel down. But the key is to be strong 💪 and push through. Doubt and fear are ok but keep focusing on the little victories that add up each and every day! I look back at these times and they were some of the best. Why? Because it’s the tough times like this that make you who you are. The real path to success isn’t easy. It’s a lot of hours of work nobody ever sees. Sleepless nights and worry. But it’s worth it

As you can see, I was having a rough day. Wondering how I would pay vendors and appreciating the fact the company had business but wondering how to really “grow” the company.

At the end of the day, I was feeling better but that’s how reality is for many entrepreneurs. It’s a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs. The key is not to give up and not give in to doubt.

Be your best! - EB
