“If you’re an entrepreneur, it is impossible to succeed by using your own labor to fill the gaps. That’s because your labor is finite. It doesn’t scale. If it’s a job only you can do, you’re not building a system, you’re just hiring yourself (and probably not paying enough either).”
No. It’s because 99.9% of entrepreneurs can’t do the things they hire others to do. It is system, labour and market manipulation. Being an entrepreneur requires confidence, charisma and a network of rich people. It does not require any design or technology or content knowledge nor any social wisdom of any sort.
The entrepreneur’s credo is ‘Failure is a virtue’ after all. Only someone with the luxury of nothing to lose and no pay cheque to count on has ever said that.
