Corporate culture makes me sick

Sololpreneurship is hard:

  • Stress
  • Uncertainty
  • Failure
  • Fear

But whenever I have dark days I look back.
The thought of going back to office culture makes me feel sick.

– Pop chart music on repeat.
– Manufactured gossip about the latest trending Netflix show.
– Morning commutes staring down someone’s exhaust pipe.
– Actioning crappy ideas for someone less talented than you.

Entrepreneurship isn’t easy, but it sure beats the alternative.
It’s insane what people will do to avoid just a little bit of uncertainty or failure.

💡 Always better to fail building your own thing than win the game for someone else.
