The one thing that aspiring entrepreneurs don’t prepare for is the loneliness that can come with entrepreneurship. Reading this, you might not even realize that you are lonely or perhaps you have been able to learn how to overcome this loneliness.
Working a 9-5 is very different from entrepreneurship because more often than not, there are at least a minimum of 20 other employees you get to see everyday, chat with, have lunch with and work on projects with. No one is saying you cannot be lonely here, it s just different when you are all alone as a startup or business owner.
As an entrepreneur you might have faced one or more of the following:
- No-one to talk to about your great new idea;
- Eating lunch alone;
- Busy weekends – unable to meet up with your employed friends etc.
It is very normal to find yourself in situations such as these but there are actually solutions to these experiences with the number one solution being to be a part of a community.
There are actually a whole lot of communities but I will tell you about our own community which is Connect 360 Africa.
