You have
startup idea
burning
inside you.
You
decide to
give it a
try.
You gather
your
courage…
Quit
your
job…
And take the leap!
Voila!
Your idea
is a
company.
Meet your
new boss:
But you still
do not feel
free.
You do not have any
customers...
And your limited funds
are disappearing fast.
You are scared.
So you decide
to pivot.
Pivot is a fancy word for
change your mind.
Your old job is
gone. Your first
idea failed.
What now?
Hmmm.
You strap
together
some stuff…
Rethink your
plan…
And get back on the horse.
You start to
get a rhythm
going.
Your second
idea stirs to
life.
But you are
not having
fun.
You used to
feel like a
slave to your
employer.
Now you feel like a
slave to your idea.
You hate
feeling like a
slave.
So you pivot
once again.
It is two
years later.
You realize
that a good
idea is not
enough.
Entrepreneurs
need an idea
that fits their
personality and
abilities.
You may not
be a 24/7
entrepreneur.
Maybe
you are
better
suited to
a clever
little idea.
One that gives
you real
freedom, and
still enough
income.
Before you
jump into a
startup,
take a hard
look at
yourself.
You are NOT
your idea.
