Entrepreneurs are weirdos, rara avis.
In a world in which 80% of university students aspire to be civil servants so that they can dedicate themselves to enjoying quality of life in exchange for sitting in a chair for eight, or ideally fewer, hours a day from Monday to Friday.
In a world in which those who do not get the ideal civil servant’s job are looking for someone who will hire them and guarantee them a salary for life in exchange for doing what they are asked to do.
Well, this is the world of entrepreneurs. As well as facing the challenge of creating something from scratch and living with uncertainty on a daily basis, we have the moral duty to ensure a salary and retirement for those who seek secure work and generate wealth so that civil servants can have it.
But we do it out of selfishness.
Because what we get in return is our dose of adrenaline, caffeine and any other addictive ina.
Because when we wake up every day we have a great challenge in front of us. A challenge in which nobody is going to tell us what we have to do or where we have to be.
But it is by no means easy.
With great power comes great responsibility, as Spiderman used to say.
Or was it Spiderman’s uncle?
In any case, freedom means having to make a lot of decisions.
By going off the road that everyone else is on, we know that we risk falling off a cliff at any moment.
And that we may not reach the destination we dream of.
I am Joan Carbonell
Computer engineer, business consultant, especially when technology is involved.
With too many years launching projects and working in innovation.
My dream is to help other entrepreneurs and businessmen to reach their destination. To achieve the expected result and, above all, to enjoy themselves along the way.
Because I am looking for the same thing for myself.
