Hard Fact #1 – You Need Hard Work, Dedication and Time
Number one, running any business is extremely difficult and takes a massive amount of hard work, dedication, and time. Starting and growing a business is not for everyone and I highly recommend that you deploy self awareness in your decision around becoming an entrepreneur.
And even if you are destined for entrepreneurship, your situation might be hindering because of other responsibilities you might have in your life at this current moment. You need a small amount of start up capital and then enough money to keep you in the black while you ramp up the business.
Hard Truth #2 – Forget About Taking a Vacation
Hard truth number two, depending on how your business is set up, you might not be able to take a vacation or even a day off for years once your business really starts going. Because of the logistics behind growing microgreens, you can’t exactly just pick up and leave your farm. The plants need to be watered every day and there’s various farm tasks that need to get done in order to keep everything moving forward.
Once you have multiple harvesting days per week, chances are you will have multiple farm tasks to complete every single day. This means no days off and no vacations unless you have somebody who can do this work for you, like a friend or a family member or maybe a business partner.
Hard Fact #3 – Rejection and Mistakes
Hard truth number three, you will get rejected, sometimes constantly, and you will make mistakes. There’s really just no way around this, not everybody’s going to want your product, in fact, most people won’t, so you’re gonna be faced with consistent rejection.
Growing microgreens and running a business are skills that you’ll have to develop over time, you’re gonna make mistakes which feels bad in the short run, but in the long run, these are gonna lead to tremendous learning experiences that you’re gonna be able to take with you through your whole life.
