Entrepreneurs are tough to explain. They’re a driven, proactive, creative bunch, and they face different challenges than most people. A day in the life of an entrepreneur is hard for most people to imagine. What do these innovative people do all day?
As the self-appointed captain of their own ships, entrepreneurs and small business owners take on a special type of responsibility that is usually born out of a desire to create something that matters, or escape the claustrophobic feeling of a 9 to 5 salaried position. Something within them tells them not to take the cookie cutter approach to life and instead to take a chance to land something far better.
The life of an entrepreneur is not an easy one, and it’s almost never boring. Something is always going very, very right or very, very wrong–and in between, there are enough hiccups and ups and downs to last a “normal” person a lifetime.
We thought you’d like to see the life of an entrepreneur, explained in GIFs – here’s our attempt at painting a picture of the life of an entrepreneur in funny, relatable 3 second loops.
Any entrepreneur worth his beans knows that in this fast-paced lifestyle, the coffee matters…and sometimes, not much else.
Until that moment you remember you were supposed to finish your taxes a month ago…gulp.
The feeling of making income with your own skills and ideas is kind of priceless.
You worry that even your best efforts look ridiculous and laughable to your competitors.
You no longer care if solo dance parties are “socially acceptable” when you get good news about your business (but for the record, they are).
In the end, you know the tough life of an entrepreneur is worth it because it leaves you with a lot more knowledge than you started with.
And if you’re 100% honest, it’s kind of a wonderful life.
