When you think of entrepreneurs, you often think of guys like Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, or the judges on Shark Tank. Jet setting, spending money, working cool phrases into your vernacular like, “What’s the ROI on that?” or “Let me put you in touch with my assistant.” The honest truth is that those things only apply to a very small percentage of small business owners and entrepreneurs. Often, those things come after years of hard work and persistence… and maybe a well placed dose of luck.
But if there is one thing that those at the top have in common, it’s that they say all the hard work was worth it. That gives guys like me hope that the dream of financial independence, doing something you love, and making the world a better place are attainable.
