I’ve been there. I think your heart is in the right place, but you’re probably putting too much pressure on yourself. I know this startup game all too well. Knowing you have good ideas, knowing you can execute better, and making a hustle of it.
Ezeani said it well, passion and hustle doesn’t necessarily a good CEO make. I think that’s what it came down to for me. I’m personally not cut out for the politics, and the pressure of the big time. I’m more of a small town cafe owner, than a fortune 500 CEO, even though I’ve made those CEO’s plenty of money to date.
What I’m hearing from you is that you’ve not only got passion, but you’ve got a good head on your shoulders. You care about what you do, and you want to be better.
