Entrepreneurs, through their creativity & innovation, make our world meaningful and rich. They conceive business ideas, put pen to paper & come to us with all the possible ways of starting the venture. They eventually give life to the idea & must ensure that the ideas survive every attempt to kill them.
Building the idea from scratch to becoming a large organization is a big deal. Entrepreneurs make our world go round. They keep giving & that is why they often suffer burnout. Many entrepreneurs loose steam, the energy gets dissipated & then frustration sets in.
So, when the entrepreneur experiences such, it impacts significantly on the business & the entire team. The day-to-day demands of running your business is enough stress on its own. It can lock a person down with feelings of frustration.
Many entrepreneurs have abandoned their dreams & pursuits when they couldn’t handle the pressure. Getting from where they are to where they want to be is tough, difficult and largely stressful. If you’ve been ‘pushing’ the business for a minimum of 24 months, it’s time to reinvent yourself. You’ll need to make some changes & modifications in yourself & the business itself.
