How to navigate entrepreneurship better

You spend weeks and months building that shiny new app — because it’s 2022 and apps are billion Dollar businesses these days. Then you ship.

Congrats if you ship. Most never ship.

Most ship and never market = dead.

But you shipped and you marketed aggressively so you have a handful of users. The traffic is coming, people are downloading your app and the churn rate is a little ok, just push a few more features and you’ll be great.

But then, as with every product, people will have pushbacks, some feedbacks will be negative, some comments can send you into depression. This is the internet, a lot of people who can’t build even if their life depends on it can drop comments that will have you questioning your life decisions. It’s easy to fall under the pressures of 100 negative feedbacks, your best team members are getting snatched, your mum says “I told you so” and your daughter doesn’t get to see you in the evenings anymore, let’s not talk about the wife.

Here is how to navigate better as an entrepreneur

  • Enjoy the small wins: The emotions are crazy when you take your wins…and losses. My advise is not to dwell on the losses and also don’t revel too long in your victory. Work goes on. If you guys hit a milestone, celebrate with the team- publicly recognise the hard workers that made it possible. Fushure enables companies reward their high performing staffs with NFT rewards every month. Do it. If you are a solopreneur, tweet about your milestone and go on a victory treat for yourself.
