Love The Grind!
Starting a business is the first step, that’s the easy step. Now the grind begins.
Remember that first time you got behind a steering wheel? It was probably your Dad’s car, or your mum’s or a friend, close or distant relative; catch my drift?. Bottom line is, it probably wasn’t yours. A couple of years down the line, you find yourself in that familiar situation: staring at yourself in the rearview mirror with that same determined look you had that time way back when, when you were so sure of yourself. Now your hands are sweating, your heart is racing and you are not sure if your foot will kiss that brake pedal like your driving instructor taught you. You were groomed, tested and prepared for this moment… You need to show them what you are made of… What a load of pressure!!Many startups seem to have that same kind of mentality venturing out.
