Starting up, Thoughts

Fall back plan

Was talking to an entrepreneur earlier today and he shared that when he started his law firm, he didn’t have a fall back plan. He bought over the company he worked at a monthly installment of $5,000. His pay at that company? $700.

The lack of fall back plan made him hustle hard.

Then I thought, I have a lot of fall back plans – I can get a job, I don’t pay rent, I’m gonna be fine even if Learnemy fails.
