There are a lot of misconceptions about entrepreneurship. One of the biggest ones I can think of is with regard to time. Many people think that since an entrepreneur might work from home, he or she has lots of extra time. That is a huge misconception. The successful entrepreneurs I know have been forced to become time management superheroes in order to fit everything into their schedules.
A person’s age and how it affects their attitudes and decisions fascinates me. I’ve written about it many times. We all have two ages. We have an online age, and then of course there is our physical age. It doesn’t matter to me if someone is 18 or 80, if that person is interesting, I’ll talk to him or her online.

Without that burning desire, it’s easy to get burned out.
