Being an entrepreneur is about staying focused, pushing the envelope, and always doing one more thing for your business even when you think you can’t. With the pressure so high, and your drive to succeed going in full force, it’s no wonder that sometimes entrepreneur’s burn out before they get off the ground. We believe in working hard, but we also believe in working smart. That’s why this week’s Gig Economy News is all about how to go full-speed-ahead without losing sight of the bigger picture.
Reach for Success, Not Perfection
Sometimes being a perfectionist can be a real asset for an entrepreneur. It means that you pay close attention to detail and make sure things are done right. However, sometimes getting bogged down in the little things can be a trap. Check out this article from Inc Magazine on 9 Signs Your Healthy Drive for Excellence has Gone too Far.
Don’t Force the Hours
