Comment on Entrepreneurs Enjoy Independence and Rewards by Finance Solver.
Entrepreneurship is hard. I’ve had the over-optimism bias for the longest time and I still do and as a result, results always turn out worse than what I expected (sometimes even losing money).
Because I’ve been kicked to the curb multiple times, I just can’t take on that much risk to start a company from scratch without a safety net because it can fail because of something that’s beyond my control. I will never ever start a company by going all-in and quitting my job. I will start one on the side to see if it’ll pay off, however then I will consider quitting to start something. I learned my lesson to never let my ego get in the way of success.
I commend you for having the courage to go away from a consistent paycheck schedule and try entrepreneurial pursuits.

FinCon is Not a Typical Industry Conference
I’ve heard great things about FInCon that I will be attending next year! I love meeting people and especially personal finance bloggers who are some of the friendliest, driven, and nicest individuals that I’ve ever met. I haven’t bought my ticket yet but I have a feeling that I will be buying a ticket.
How Does Elon Musk Get So Much Done?
I think another person who rivals Elon Musk is Jack Dorsey, CEO of both Twitter and Square. I think Elon still beats Dorsey in terms of productivity but man being CEO of both companies can’t be easy, I can barely be CEO of myself. This is why I try not to complain when I have a lot on my plate because there’s other people who’s able to finish what’s on my plate and take on 5 more plates.
Learning to Play an Instrument Provides Benefits
I’ve played the piano for about 10 years (I don’t play much anymore because I don’t have one readily available to me and I hope that I haven’t forgotten). I can say that my brain functions a lot faster as a result of learning the dexterity that playing the piano requires. Reading this post has really made me want to go back to playing now!
