The Struggle is Real: How Community Helps Entrepreneurs Keep Moving Forward

The struggle is real. But you’re not alone.

There are other entrepreneurs out there who are dealing with some of the same pains you are.

That’s the message real estate entrepreneur J Massey shared backstage at the 2016 Freedom Fast Lane Live conference.

Here’s what J Massey had to say:

What it comes down to is, I like any place that’s going to help more entrepreneurs keep going.

Because it can feel lonely.

It can feel like you’re by yourself.

It can feel like, “Oh my God, the entire world is against me. No one believes my idea. No one’s giving me money, agh! What am I going to do?”

This is a forum where you know that there’s someone else. There’s that brother or sister in arms. And you know you’re not by yourself.

And you get some validation, and some people can actually understand your pain.

Because for some of us, the problems we are facing are really first world problems.

It’s not really that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, ’cause we’re going to eat tonight. We have a place to stay.

We have these things, but yet there’s this pain sometimes, when it comes to our ideas not coming to fruition, or our customers and learning how to interact and make sure that they have the best experience possible.

And being able to know that, hey, this is where my brothers and sisters are going to be.

This is where my family could be.

I’m going to be able to get re-energized to make it through the next year, or the next quarter, or the next investor meeting.

Whatever it is I’ve got to do, to know that there are other people out there, this is a great place to find them.
