Doubting if Startup life is worth the effort and mental pressure

I had worked at 2 startups before as one of the early team members. Both startups had a good exit. I loved the startup life in those days.

That bug got me started with my own startup about a year ago. Now I have a team, product and small success. But now I’m looking at growing the company and realizing it is lot more commitment then I realized. Not just that I now have family, kids and other monthly expenses, but it seems like now I am on an emotional roller coaster.

One part of me says to pull the plug and go back to secure job lifestyle. At least I will have mental piece of mind.


  • “Secure job lifestyle” is an illusion. Your job is more secure when you’re in charge. You’ve built something! You owe it to your employees and customers to persevere. Hang in there.

  • 2 years ago, I quit my consulting job paying me $180k per year to start my solo startup. Friends called me crazy.

    For 2 years, I was making $0… in fact negative due to bills of course.

    2 weeks ago, I needed to decide whether to move in with my brother because my savings is almost depleted.

    Until my startup started making money.

    It took me 2 years. It was hard and a lot of people would have quit by 1 year.

    How I succeeded?

    1. Hard Work.

    2. Belief. I never quit.

  • Hard work is so irritating…I hate this and the living poorly rubbish. All this money in the world and you have to go through all kinds of dumb shit to get it and live comfortably.. You can’t just start a business people want what you are selling and its simple.. Nope everything has to be extra difficult and frustrating.
