Riding the Startup Rollercoaster

Aug 22, 2023 by manish

Starting a startup is like being on a crazy ride, and I’m experiencing it firsthand.

🎢 Some days I’m super pumped up to get things done, but the other days, I question if I’m on the right path. It’s not always as glamorous as those founder stories we hear. But every time I bounce back from a tough time, I learn something new.

💪 One thing that’s been a huge help is having a supportive partner and surrounding myself with mentors and friends who can cheer me on and give me honest advice and feedback. It’s important to have people who believe in you and your dreams.

🤔 Another piece of advice I received from a close friend and mentor is to be clear on why I’m doing this. The drive to work on something needs to come from within. External factors can only hold you accountable temporarily. I’m still learning how to stay motivated all the time, but every time I come out of a low moment, I feel stronger and ready to take on the next challenge.
