Do you want to know what entrepreneurs really do? They cold call. They clean bathrooms and mop floors. They make copies and fix computer problems. They answer phones. They fill out paperwork. They work weekends, and holidays. They have to, because their employees just want to work 40 hours and leave, and they can’t afford to hire any more help.
That quote is from Rob at BusinessPundit in his post about the entrepreneurs life not being glamourous, but hard work. Personally, I don’t agree with either perspective. It’s a personal judgment, and to each his/her own. What is relevant?
The mark of the true entrepreneur is this:
If cleaning bathrooms and mopping floors is the best thing for the business, there is nothing in the world they’d rather be doing.
