The truth about entrepreneurship 101#Episode1

2) Comfortable you are not yet!

Most of people, starts life with less than they aim for! A lot of us have the chance to study. Student life you are not comfortable yet.

2) CEO you need to practise!

There is only one way to learn how to Be a good CEO or co-founder of a startup. Just Doing it.

Did you ever see a Master of CEO? Hell no. There are master of business where you only learn how to do a shitty business plan, that no one use in early stage startup. When you are in Engineering, you mostly only learn about the tech side. I have experience in European and Asian Study system especially. It might be better in the USA, I heard some UNI you can focus more on pitching etc..

Practice is key, you will realize and learn by doing. Startup is so different from countries, area of business, team etc.. To learn from internet will just give you an overview.

Also, people will keep telling you should have experience in the field. It is 80% false.

3) Energy you have!

4) Experience you don't need!

5) Life you should enjoy! Limitless you should be!
