Building a business can be overwhelming but yet … there’s a group of people that wouldn’t change it for anything.
Being an entrepreneur is full of challenges, sacrifice, and hard work. It is well known that most businesses fail within the first 5 years but for the entrepreneur, helping build someone else’s dream is simply NOT an option.
They rather take risks and work for themselves. Most of the time it is because they are passionate about solving a problem, pursuing an idea or to build something bigger than themselves.
