The Start-Up Feels


Feeling low?

Feeling like you are going nowhere in life?

Feeling like you’ve dug yourself a hole so deep that there is no possible way to get out?

Weren’t feeling any of those things, but you are now after reading that intro?

Yeah beginning a startup can be hard at times and it’s understandable that at some points you feel like giving up.

Well have no fear…you will get through this.

I’m not going to give you a bunch of motivational quotes and tell you that it’s about the journey and not the destination…’cause that’s boring.

What I will tell you though is that super successful celebrities were at one point exactly where you are…maybe that will make you feel better…and if not, it was a fun way to kill time.

And plus it’s nice knowing sometimes these idolized people were once human.

So while you might be feeling a little low and stressed out…just remember no one started out amazing, everyone had to work hard to get where they are at! So keep on going, your startup is going to be great.

You’re not alone. There are so many people out there in the same boat, struggling with their startups. Connect with them, gain motivation, and innovate!
