“Entrepreneurs Are Rocket Scientists” — Cut That Bullshit!

The idea of being entrepreneur is ever appealing. However, it takes a lot of determination, will power and of course good many efforts to keep the ball rolling. While looking at any startup entrepreneur story, any new entrepreneur might think that every startup raises capital and walks away with millions in their pocket after the easy and quick overnight success followed by acquisition by Facebook and Google.

These sensationalized stories are very misleading and do not represent the daily grind of startup life.

Below are some of the common startup myths that needs to be brush off:

1. Entrepreneurs are rocket scientist- Cut that bullshit — You don’t have to be technical

2. You should bring in the capital

3. I need a venture capital partner to succeed

4. Build it and they will come

5. You need to put in 80 hours a week

The above mentioned are just few but common myths that have heard and come across when talking with fellow entrepreneurs. Every startup is different and difficult in its own way and no same marketing strategies can be levied, hence every startup owner come across different challenges and opportunities that helps them improve their organizational structure.
