How can hardworking and curse be in the same sentence, you ask? I bet if you’re an entrepreneur grappling with second stage issues, you’re familiar with this phenomena already. Chances are you got to where you are in part, by being hardworking. And that’s a good thing. You’ve been picking up the slack, noticing what needs to be fixed, spotting the opportunities for growth, all-the-while getting up earlier and staying up later to take care of it all. You’re getting better at squeezing more in to your calendar. You skip lunch when duty calls.
