Everyone knows that startup life isn’t always as easy as pie. As an entrepreneur your personal time is sometimes nowhere to be found, you might not have any quality time with your family or friends and some stress control might be in place. Long workdays can be really hard and energy-consuming, but startup life can’t be all that hard, can it?
Let’s find out what these two founders of StepOut have to say about startup life and how it really goes:
1. What is the best thing being an entrepreneur?
The best thing would be, that you get to work on something that you are the most passionate about. You decide your own moves and are fully responsible for your actions. Devoting your time to turn your vision into reality and living both the ups and downs of it helps develop yourself as a person as well as a better professional.
2. What is the hardest thing being an entrepreneur? Why?
Entrepreneurship is a roller coaster ride where you need to be ready for anything that comes your way. There will be times when things won’t go as expected and it can become challenging to deal with the situations but if you have the right kind of people around you, you are always able to swim through it.
3. What does the future hold for StepOut?
Our mission is to create convenient learning and earning opportunities and encourage fitness and well being for everyone. We look forward to seeing StepOut as the go-to solution and a popular name when it comes to opportunities for independent trainers or choices for activities regarding fitness or recreation.
4. Is startup life what you expected?
When stepping on to this startup’s path, we were very much aware of what we were getting ourselves into. It does require a lot of hard work and 100% commitment if you are determined to get the expected results At the same time, it offers that thrill of achieving little milestones and the excitement of seeing things fall into place.
5. What have you learned? Is there something you would’ve done differently?
We’ve learned the importance of determination and being open to change. Of course, we have made some mistakes and that’s how we have learned and grown. One of the important lessons would definitely be that, listen to the feedback and advice that others have to give to you but make sure to evaluate that and do what ”you” feel is the right thing to do.
So, we can say that even though startup life isn’t meant for everybody and can be hard sometimes, it’s definitely worth it! StepOut is growing and so are all of the team members. We are eager to see what the future has to offer to us – StepOut and step up the game!
