Patience and passion run side by side.
Imagine this: You have been working, bootstrapping, tolling really, and you are busy turning the market on its head.
But, your audience isn’t as easily convinced as quickly as they could be, and gathering those people’s attention and trust is a long-term game that requires patience alongside your passion.
This is the drip, drip, drip process that drives the ambitious, the fast moving, and the dedicated, crazy. Impatience strangles more ideas that anything that passion produces. Being patient, doing the things, day in and day out, that will convert people to your cause, your philosophy, and to using your products and services, is part of the difficult and unglamorous work that doesn’t make the cover of Fast Company.
As the glamour and glitz of the entrepreneurship bubble slowly deflates, the mechanics of patience and the passion, driven by talent and vision, will be the things that will define the next round of entrepreneurship in any space.
