Why Entrepreneurs Cannot Afford to Ignore their Mental Health

Entrepreneurship is an exciting, celebrated & sought-after profession. More than being a profession, its a passion of individuals who really want to change the world through their services, products, ideas and make a lasting impact.

But with this bright side that is visible to all, including the people who embark this journey, entrepreneurship almost always has a painful, dark side to it that no one talks openly about, that a person entering this world is unaware of or grossly underestimates.

Before the riches, the celebration, the media coverage, the frenzy comes in, an entrepreneur has to struggle with daily failures, lack of resources for survival, family and friend’s pressure, social isolation due to lack of time, at the personal level.

And on professional side, an uphill task of convincing people to work for them & to join their vision and continue with it even when adversities hit in, an even tougher task to win customers who haven’t ever heard of you, to keep them happy and keep multiplying their growth while also getting access to capital without which any big idea can fail. Along with this is the onslaught of competition with newer technology, more money or any combination that could put an entrepreneur’s vision at severe risk. The breakneck speed at which all of this happens, these changes in an individual’s life who once was thrilled with his/her new idea, can throw an individual off balance and make a person susceptible to a host of emotional and mental health issues.

The New Meaning Of Entrepreneurship

In a society that feels moribund, where the current government is sinking deeper into the morass on such huge societal problems as retirement, health care and climate, a lot of the real change has been coming from entrepreneurship. Is there any wonder, then, that agents of social change are borrowing concepts from entrepreneurship and even the word itself to describe themselves?

Entrepreneurship used to mean this: “The activity of setting up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.”

The idea of entrepreneurship had already been evolving, as some people divorced entrepreneurship from profit. There were social entrepreneurs, who were building enterprises with double bottom lines. Now, we’re watching the concept of entrepreneurship transform, again. Read more.

Tips to Franchise a Restaurant

Franchising is a strategy in which it uses other people’s money to grow and expand without giving up control or equity in the original business. In franchising, the franchisee pays to the franchisor a franchise fee plus a percentage of the top line revenue which is commonly referred to as a royalty. Additionally, the franchisee provides the people power behind the daily operations as well and it allows for the brand to expand at a more expeditious rate.

Franchising a restaurant is a big step for any owner at any stage. It takes time, patience, and hard work. It is important to remember that franchising is a business and, much like any business, it generally does not happen overnight. Read more.
