What they don't tell you about being an Entrepreneur

Too true. I think this is one of those universally shared experiences of entrepreneurs all over the world. This is how Marc Andreessen (of Netscape fame) has described it:

First, and most importantly, realize that a startup puts you on an emotional rollercoaster unlike anything you have ever experienced.You will flip rapidly from a day in which you are euphorically convinced you are going to own the world, to a day in which doom seems only weeks away and you feel completely ruined, and back again. Over and over and over. And I'm talking about what happens to stable entrepreneurs.
