Ep. 53: You Are Not Alone – Why We Do This, with Scott Sambucci

This episode is going to be more of a human to human conversation.

As an entrepreneur, you’re always expected to wear a mask, to wear a suit of armor, to wear your superman cape, and the truth is, that stuff isn’t real. What’s real is behind the mask, what’s real is behind the suit of armor, what’s real is the flesh and bones that are holding up the t-shirt that you’re wearing.

For me, yesterday was one of those days where I finished the day feeling exasperated and frustrated. It was one of those days that if you’re a parent, a spouse, a partner, or all three – and you’re also an entrepreneur – you might have had one just like it.

And I know I’m not the only person that’s had this kind of day, and that means I’m not alone out there, I know that there are others that are going through something similar.

So, if you’re working damn hard to build a company that is going to make an impact in our world, you must know that you’re not alone out there. There are others with similar problems and similar frustrations.  

And you know what? These “problems” are not problems.

There are people out there right now without food, without water, without shelter, that are in way worse shape than some dude (aka me) standing in front of his computer with a Superman t-shirt at 6:20am, in his home office, complaining about billing issues with his client or complaining about how challenging it is to be a dad and a husband.

It’s all about perspective. And that’s what we’re gonna dive into in today’s episode of the StartUp Selling Podcast.
