Making the decision to become an entrepreneur is not just about the decision itself, but also about the people you surround yourself with. It's crucial to put on blinders to the noise and naysayers and focus on who you associate with. By surrounding yourself with positive and supportive people, you can better position yourself for success in the entrepreneurial world. When I decided to take this path, I realized that the only opinions that truly mattered were those of my wife and children. I knew that I had to tune out the noise of the naysayers and focus on surrounding myself with positive, supportive people who would help me on my journey.
It's often said that you are the company you keep. If you surround yourself with negative people, you'll find yourself drowning in their misery. This is why it's so important to be intentional about the people you spend time with. Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future. Your future success depends on it.
