Entrepreneurship: One Thing I Still Feel I Cannot Say as an Entrepreneur

There’s one thing I still feel like I cannot say as an entrepreneur of over 15 years. I realized this as I was thinking over ideas to write about. I wanted to discuss something more than the usual PR-related how-tos, benefits, and product reviews in this section. I wanted to take a moment and keep it real. 

I have been going through it as a business owner for almost two years, but I refuse to give up. I cannot imagine what that would be like. It seems so foreign to me that it is not the thing to do. And because I’ve experienced this before, though probably in shorter periods, I know this season shall pass in due time, but what do I do in the meantime? 

It’s almost like an attack on you and your business. What’s worse, I think, is the farther you are in business, the worse these attacks are, and it can be discouraging. Why go higher if you know you are going to experience more stress and pain?

Moments like this make me wonder if it is worth it. I honestly cannot say that it is or is not. I do not feel like I’ve had big enough moments that let me know that confirm that. Unlike most people, I experience events in fleeting moments. Rarely are they long-lived with me, and I feel like when I encounter a confirmation event, there will be a real sense of accomplishment through stability. 

And maybe that is the traumatized part of me that has experienced homelessness before, but none of the moments feel solid enough not to feel shaky. So, I go from one project to another. Each time, wondering could this be my big thing. Yet, that’s the funny part because I never felt comfortable even with a six-figure collaboration. And after it ended, I understood why. Understand, this journey has its good parts, too, and they could very well outweigh the bad, but with the season I am in, most of my days are gray. 

So, if someone were to ask me if I think this entrepreneurial journey is worth it, I would be inclined to say I don’t know yet. I’m still actively waiting to see.
