The romanticism of entrepreneurship is not needed. It is just another part people pursue. I understand media and authors portray a glorious picture of it. But in the end, it is just another route or journey.
For one success story, there are thousands of other failures. We don’t talk about them. The selective narration of success is used and reused as inspiration to condition the youths.
A very few talk or witness the everyday struggle of most entrepreneurs where they are constantly juggling across many tasks, managing the ego of their employees, customers, and other stakeholders. The media does not show you the falling personal relationships, deteriorating health, and everyday mental struggle of an average entrepreneur.
Confirmation bias laced with hero stories has resulted in every sophomore dreaming into the journey. In my view, entrepreneurship is just another way of earning and living. It does not require a celebrity status or god-level worship.
