You are a twentysomething entrepreneur ready to launch a new business and your emotions are running wild. You’re frightened, intimated, and stressed, but at the same time you’re enthusiastic and confident about what the future holds.
At this point, it’s time to step back and listen to those who have been in the same situation.
It would be a foolish mistake and a missed opportunity not to value the advice, experience, and knowledge a mentor can offer. Put your ego aside; be a sponge and soak up as much wisdom as possible.
I was in this exact position prior to launching SDC Nutrition Inc. I was confident and probably a little too self-assured, but I knew I had to set aside my ego to listen and absorb as much invaluable advice as possible from my advisers.
As a eager entrepreneur it may be hard to heed someone else’s advice. But being fearless means listening to people who are smarter than you.
