Starting a Business is Easy - Surviving it is Really Hard - Ownershift Coaching - Mike Malatesta

Starting a business is easy. All it takes is a dream, some paperwork and money.

Surviving as a business is hard. Really Hard.

All it takes is great execution, hours & hours, doing what the 5% do and the 95% don’t, more money than you thought, great team members & clients, many Owner Shifts, and – often – a price higher than you imagined you’d be willing to pay.

You can look like you’re surviving on the outside while you’re crashing on the inside. You know what I mean.

Survival isn’t ever guaranteed. Not at the beginning, not ever. It needs to be earned over and over again.

But a survival mentality can sabotage you – if you let it.

That’s what I did for a long time. I worried more about what I could lose than what I could gain and build. I thought I was risking my past instead of what I was really doing, which was risking my future.

Fortunately, I SHIFTED my thinking before I tossed everything away by worrying about survival and, instead, broke through so that I could make my future the “property” I wanted to own.
