We’re back with another meme series for startups and entrepreneurs. There’s never a boring day in the life of an entrepreneur, as there are always new problems to solve, which is why it’s so exciting. You can go from dealing with customers, marketing, and hiring all within the hour! With so many ups and downs in the life of an entrepreneur, we bring you some humor for yours.
As entrepreneurs, humor should be added to the bag of self-care. Use humour to get through those tough days as a founder.
1. Startup Revenue Screen Shots with showing off that MRR on Twitter
You’ve been seen it on Twitter. Those MRR screen shots bring out the most views indeed! The engagements roll in. Some indie makers are incredibly good at this as though sometimes these numbers can be overwhelming for beginners on Twitter and other social media platforms. The best advice is don’t compare your chapter one to someone else’s chapter ten.
2. When you finally reach that product market fit
We know that feeling when you got that product market fit. What does it look like? You have more and more paying customers and your phone won’t stop ringing. Traction for startups is massive.
3. Entrepreneurship in Social Media is radically different
There’s too much glamour around building a startup and being a your own boss. Social media tend to show only the rain bows and sunshine of entrepreneurship, but not the struggles. What about all those hours and things don’t really work? The reality is that starting your own thing is brutal!
4. Building more product features with no customers goes no where
This one is all well too common among startups. It’s much easier to build feature than to go out to talk customers. This is especially the case for technical founders. No one like to sell, but someone has to get it done. As they say sales solves 99% of startup problems. Without sales the startup is just a hubby.
5. Focusing on Product vs Distribution
We know distribution wins every single time but it’s tempting to just work on the product. This is why second-time founders are known to focus on distribution. Distribution wins every single time! It will bring more reach and customers to your product. What will you focus on your startup? An average product with greater distribution is more likely to succeed than an exceptional product with no distribution.
6. The evolution of work from home
This one is relatable as work from home hasn’t been perfect. It’s been incredibly chaotic past few years. What will the future of work look like for entrepreneurs? it’s more likely a hybrid case!
7. Juggling the business and the rest
It’s truly mission impossible for founders to deal with these economic challenges and launch a success business. We know we can do it all!
8. More domain names anyone?
Not sure what your domain dashboard looks like, but we know we usually have a lot of domains that are in idle mode; too many side projects to count.
9. Launching a startup is something else.
Attending a week-long startup tech conference is one thing, but launching an actual startup is a completely different experience. There’s no substitute for actually trying to build a venture.
10. Adding more feature won’t generate more sales.
Adding more feature, but not marketing it is the biggest issue at most startups because no one wants to do the marketing.
11. The Level of Support for Founders
You all have seen this one on Linkedin. Starting a new job is so radically than starting your own business. The level of support for founders out there absolutely sucks!
