Starting your own entrepreneurial venture could be easily compared to sailing on a ship. You have to strategically plan out your goals by envisioning and picturing yourself on the island of success, acquire valuable tools and resources along for the trip, hire or partner up with trustworthy and equally passionate people, and finally, be ready to work your ass off until you reach your desired destination. The tricky part is that there isn’t a perfect map that’s guaranteed to get you there. Trial and error becomes you best friend until you get it right.  Anyone can be an entrepreneur, but it takes bravery and hard work to be a success entrepreneur. Without motivation carving out your own path isn’t easy. Wisdom is learning from other people’s mistakes. By analyzing the challenges that others faced, you’re able to use their methods to overcome treacherous obstacles.
