The Psychological Price of Entrepreneurship

From (via John, a co-founder of Crossfit Toronto):

No one said building a company was easy. But it's time to be honest about how brutal it really is--and the price so many founders secretly pay.
It's one of those things that's tough for others to understand and tough to talk about. For many of us who create businesses, it's difficult to build an identity outside our startups - so even the thought of admitting failure is difficult. On the other hand, the future belongs to those who are willing to take the plunge - and even more encouragingly, the world is changing so that it's increasingly possible to start a business without quitting your job before knowing that your idea will work (TimFerriss).

In recent years, I've found my rhythm with the help of friends and family but also CrossFit Toronto. I've also taken to listening pretty consistently to Mixergy interviews and recently became a premium member.
