ENTREPRENEUR LIFE AND THE CONS ASSOCIATED, BUT NEVER DISCUSSED
August 20, 2019
We see a lot of glitz and glamour online regarding entrepreneurship and running your own business.
But is it all that it is portrayed to be? Possibly... but our CEO keeps it real with a story of the hardships faced on a daily basis with balancing family and a growing business with no borders.
"The joys of entrepreneurship. So just leaving the house now and I was trying to get out while my daughters were sleeping. The shitty part is my four year old wakes up and she sees me sneaking out. Even though it's a day trip to another country with 15 hours travel time there and back for four hours of meeting time. She breaks down crying, daddy please don't go. It's just devastating," says George Stroumboulis, Ideoli CEO and Co-Founder.
That must be the really hard part of being an entrepreneur.
"You know this is the side of it that everyone says they are an entrepreneur and they have their own business and they are running it. And you see all this shit online that it's glamorous. Yeah, it's got its pros and cons but it is definitely a grind," says George.
Thanks for sharing your story George. I’m sure many entrepreneurs out there can relate to your story.
