If you’ve been in the entrepreneur lane for more than a minute, you know that there is at least one time in which you’ve wondered if you should continue running on as a business owner or if you should just call it a wrap. Every business owner has had to come to that question and most have had to ponder it much more than once.
Entrepreneurship is not for the weary. You will be tired, tried and tested throughout your tenure. So, if you haven’t experienced it yet, know that at some point you will. And when you do, take comfort in knowing that the exception to the rule would be someone whose circumstances did not require them to think of it at all.
When that moment happens to you, it is important to take an analysis of where you are in your business and where you still have yet to go. Owning a business is no small feat. It requires tenacity, unrelenting faith and perseverance just to name a few. Even with all the right characteristics, there will be moments in which you wonder if you should go on in your business.
I have had to ask that question at some point in almost all of my businesses. But know you can never create a successful business without making it through some dark seasons. Entrepreneurship can produce the most unbelievable, amazing results, but once you get to it, know that you deserve every bit of that success after all you would have had to endure to make it there.
When you do your analysis, look at whether you’re currently doing the best you could possibly do in the business. Look for support in the areas where you see gaps, and determine what is going to be required to get you out of that hole.
If you are able to do what is necessary to produce the end result, keep running. But if you see that even with the necessary components it is still not worth it in the end, or you are not willing to do what’s required to get there, perhaps it’s time for you to let it go.
Nothing comes without sacrifice. There is a price for everything. Many who have built successful businesses will tell you that often times those they loved had to be sacrificed. For some, the sacrifice was worth it. For others, it certainly was not. But only you can determine whether the sacrifices it took for you to get there was worth it for you or not.
Seek out advice from those with specific expertise in the areas you need support. But be sure to make the best decision for yourself and one that you can live with and not regret as your life goes on.
