What's the best part of being an entrepreneur? What's the worst?

The entrepreneurial journey has nothing to do with what you read on media outlets like TechCrunch or Mashable.
That is pretty far in my experience from the reality that entrepreneurs deal with on a daily basis.

High: The challenges you step up to every day.
Low: There is no low if you step up to those challenges every day and do your best.

The best is the excitement of doing things that have an impact, and growing a venture. The worst is the very real problem of financial stability and benefits.

For me the absolute best part comes down to me feeling like I have some control over my progression toward a vision I have -- to build an education system that actually helps people find a sense of satisfaction with their own personal progression. I also would like control over the legacy I'll leave behind. I couldn't find that sense of control doing anything else other than building my company. The hardest part is using my time wisely.

Hi Ivan. For me, the best part is the intersection of doing what you have the talent for and enjoy and adding value to people's lives with your startup's product. The worst part might be minor failures and the need to stay motivated to focus on staying disciplined, having a purpose, and being ambitious. The minor failures make you lose momentum, and feel burned out, whereas small and of course big wins give you the energy to keep going.

The best part of being a business owner, sometimes as a result of being an entrepreneur, is the power to make decisions without reference to a higher authority within the company. The worst part is being responsible for the lives of others, especially when removing them from the company is required.

The business founding owner (otherwise known as an entrepreneur) of a business has a lot of power. that’s the good part. The bad part is the business owner has the responsibility for the lives of his employees and associates and soon finds that he is working for the business, not the other way around.
