Thought For Today- ‘ Entrepreneurship isn’t a career choice it’s a passion and obsession.”

“Startups are painful, stressful and at times demoralizing. You need to be a true believer in the vision of what you are doing. You need to passionate about it and love what you’re doing. If you don’t, there is no way you can sustain the hours, stress and disappointment. There’s no way you’re going to be able to convince investors, customers and most importantly recruit a world-class team if you not building something you think is going to change the world.”

“If the opportunity is so large, and the barriers to starting up so low, why haven’t the number of scalable startups exploded exponentially? What’s holding us back? While it’s easier than ever to draw an idea on the back of the napkin, build a prototype or create a small business on the side, it’s still hard to quit your day job and commit ‘all in.

“Revolutions are not obvious when they happen. When James Watt started the industrial revolution with the steam engine in 1775 no one said, ‘Today, everything changes. When Karl Benz drove around Mannheim in 1885, no one said, ‘There will be 500 million of these driving around in a century. And certainly in 1958 when Noyce and Kilby invented the integrated circuit, the idea of a quintillion (10 to the 18th power) transistors being produced each year seemed ludicrous.

“You need to ask yourself, ‘Where do you want to work: startups, mid-size or large companies?If you find yourself debating the ‘startup versus large company choice you’ve already chosen the big company. Entrepreneurship isn’t a career choice it’s a passion and obsession.”
