Tip to all those entrepreneurs who want to embark on a startup. Be honest with yourself – if you get lonely, or if you can’t really deal with loneliness well, get your head straight before embarking on your new venture. Have a plan to deal with and cope with loneliness as you move forward so that you don’t let loneliness affect your business plans. You may be surrounded by people but being an entrepreneur is a lonely “process.” You will be alone when you start out, you will be alone when you plan your moves, and you will be alone when you are in a room full of people who are looking to you for direction. Of course, you will be alone in failure but don’t kid yourself, you will also be alone in success but always remember to praise and be grateful to those who helped you achieve success. Plan for loneliness and keeping your head right throughout the process.
