Let me start this Forum with the famous graduation ceremony speech by Steve Jobs that we all are quite familiar with.
To me, self-employment means freedom, and that is something I value very much and is at the core of my life goals.
This entrepreneur inspirational speech is a motivation video for all aspiring hustlers and startup owners. In it, he speaks about the highs and lows of entrepreneurship.
Social media and hashtags such as #EntrepreneurLife make self-employment look like a flawless dream. But that aesthetic can be misleading. What you don’t see in those pictures are the countless hours of hard work, hustle and sweat that went into it and near-constant stress, drawbacks, and hardships.
But don’t let this discourage you – everything takes preparation and hard work. The most important thing you need to do is be aware of the challenges and to let that awareness inspire your growth.
