It’s time to get real

Ok, this video is old, but it’s a good reminder of some important lessons that are to be kept in mind if you want to start a company in this economic climate. If you thought it would be easy, you were wrong. If you thought you could ignore things like revenue, profit, and customer service, you were wrong. If you thought you could cash out for millions in a year, you were wrong. Entrepreneurship isn’t about the quick and easy road to riches. It’s about building something that has value, being in control of your destiny, and hopefully being rewarded for your hard work. If that’s what you’re after, this is a great time to start a company. If not, better hang on to your day job.

Don’t worry though…the next bubble is probably just around the corner 🙂
