Disclaimer: I can't write a universal perspective of what it means to be a successful entrepreneur, let alone a in a foreign land, because everyone has a different experience, and journey. But there are some hard truths that I discovered in my journey, that I share on my blog that upset a few people.
I'm back in the US, living at home, and I want to continue the discussion from my last post about the 3 types of entrepreneurs I've met.
If you haven't read it, read it HERE.
Why People Disagree?
Now I expected disagreement, because not everyone neatly fits into those 3 categories.
And I recognise I have limited experience as an entrepreneur, in a foreign land, because I'm not married, I don't have children, I'm heterosexual, and I've never worked in the corporate world.
However, people are certainly uncomfortable reading about social class, wealth, and how their private relationships and wealth influences their success.
What is wrong with analysing your supportive network, and admitting how people and wealth contribute to your success?
Because even the most successful entrepreneurs, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Mark Zuckerburg, give credit to their spouses, family, friends, employees, teachers, and mentors who have helped them along the way.
The essential point of my last blog post was that no one can do it alone.
Everyone gets some kind of help.
