Episode 7 | Grit
“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” – Steve Jobs
Do you ever think about grit — your ability to stick to a goal over a long period of time, even when circumstances get hard? Grit is one of the key qualities of successful entrepreneurs. You need to have a passion for (and dedication to) creating the business itself (not just a passion for the topic of your teaching or coaching). The good news is that the ups and downs of the entrepreneurial roller coaster will help you to develop that grit over time.
How long should you try out entrepreneurship before you really know whether it’s a good fit for you? How do you know when you should stick with your business versus when you should give up?
