When starting your own business, it’s easy to get caught up in creating an expansive vision, aiming high and expecting that everything will happen over night.
While the pipedream of empire creation is an important one, it’s completely cool to start up humbly, authentically and true to ~you.
Comparing yourself to other success stories in your market is an exhaustive exercise. While admiring and drawing inspiration from others in your field can be beneficial to your biz and cement ideals for personal successes, it can also become a silly and sad timewaster.
