How to become an entrepreneur. Its harder then you think.

How to become an entrepreneur. Its harder then you think.

Anyone who tells you its easy to build a business is not telling you the truth! Its harder then you think. You need to be at the right place and at the right time. If your thinking of starting out take some advice from people who know what they are doing and have done the journey before (like founderbounty).

Building a business is nothing like anything else. There is no right or wrong answer about how to do it. You need to think about the idea, build an MVP, get customers, scale and hopefully exit. All of this while fundraising, running operations and making sure you dont die in the process or run out of case.

VC's wont tell you how to do it nor will people who work. Second or third time entrepreneurs will do it. They can guide you but no one can tell you exactly how its done. FAILURE is key to knowing and learning from your mistakes. It will allow you to become a better entrepreneur.

Get started as soon as you can. Thinking of leaving your job? Mabye not just yet. Try prove the market and test it before allocating any resources to it. On average it should take you a max of 6 months to get your first paying customer. Still no customers, time to move on and pivot, or even give up on the idea and try another one.

Courses and advisors can only teach you so much but there is nothing like going out and getting into the trenches yourself and trying to build one.
