I have been working at a startup for one and a half years. In the beginning I was there just for the opportunity of learning and embracing new challenges. I was still graduating and a full-time job was not my main worry. Later, I agreed with the founder to start taking this more seriously, so I moved to the city where the startup is located and started to get a salary.
Problem is, we are just two people (me and the CEO), and even though I admire his persistence, I don’t feel he is fit for the job. Also he has lied sometimes to me about leads, so I don’t trust him much, and currently the company has real liquidity problems, so I never get my check on time (usually there is a two month delay). Also, I have no contract…
The product is really interesting and has potential (in the sector of construction), but so far we’ve had no sales, and our current investor is not supporting us anymore. We do have some leads, as always, but honestly I don’t care anymore. I feel depressed just by thinking of going back to work, and dread every day. Recently I went through a small surgery and even that felt like heaven because, for a small amount of time, I didn’t have to work.
I understand that being an entrepreneur is a constant struggle, so I have been trying my best to keep up, but I don’t think I can do it anymore, and maybe I should quit once and for all.
What are your thoughts on this?
