Entrepreneurial Mindset

While mindset alone can never guarantee success, it is the most important prerequisite.

For starters, banish any notions of glamor from your mind. Instead, prepare to work hard and sacrifice, often over a longer period than you may have expected.

While maintaining a laser focus on your plan, you’ll also need to prioritize ongoing learning and flexibility to adjust your approach, and maybe even pivot to different opportunities when it makes sense.
