Startup companies can seem fun. Working for yourself, in your own time, getting paid what you make, doing what you love - but it’s not always as it seems. Don’t get me wrong, working in my own startup has been great, and if you have your own passion you wish to follow or are following, I encourage you whole heartedly and say go for it - but with anything good, there often challenges that we will face. It is how we deal with these that will ultimately determine our success. Based on what I have read and learned, I have constructed a list of 4 habits I believe are essential for an entrepreneur to have during the start up process.
