Is entrepreneurship easy?
Feb 18, 2019  |  Kenelm Tonkin



Visualise entrepreneurship as swimming across the English channel, but instead of seawater you’re swimming in molasses.

You need:

  • Patience
  • Grit and determination
  • Endurance
  • High tolerance for psychological stress and emotional pain
  • Social intelligence
  • A formidable work ethic
  • Mastery of the acting craft
  • Curiosity
  • The ability to be a trendspotter
  • Structured thinking
  • Problem solving skills

all on 3–5 hours sleep a night.
