There’s an old joke that always makes the rounds when you mention being an entrepreneur. You’re probably very familiar with it. It goes something like this: Entrepreneurs are the only people in the world that will work 80 hours for themselves, just so they do not have to work 40 hours for someone else. The joke has been so overdone, I’m not entirely sure who even said it to begin with, but I personally first heard it from Lori Greiner.
It’s something that has really stuck with me through the years, especially when my nose is to the grindstone. You understand. It really doesn’t matter where you are in your entrepreneurship journey: Maybe you just started, or perhaps you have a few years under your belt, or you might even be a seasoned pro. Wherever you are at, you know what it is like when things are crazy busy.
