Entrepreneurship is the new Netflix.
You can build an online store, get famous on social media, or produce your own hit TV show, all from your living room, without spending a single dollar.
Why, then, do first-time entrepreneurs continue to quit their jobs, move away from their family, and cash in their hard-earned savings for mere ideas?
In part, it's because successful founders love to write blog posts and speak at conferences about how "if you aren't focusing on your idea 110%, you aren't a real entrepreneur."
How about, if you're not paying bills, taking care of your family, and getting decent sleep at night, then you aren't a real person?
Sure, we watch less TV. I read fewer books. My girlfriend has adapted to working vacations.
But day-to-day? We're waking up, drinking coffee, helping people grow their businesses, and spending time with the people who matter most.
Is that so different than the life of a non-entrepreneur? What about someone who quit everything for a concept?
Here's an idea... if you can't build something valuable in your spare time, more time isn't going to make a difference.
