RED 211: The Downside Of Early Success (And How To Die Rich)There’s a common situation among entrepreneurs, especially among entrepreneurs who have been in business for five years or more. It’s not obvious from the outside and likely to go unnoticed by non-entrepreneurs. Once an entrepreneur mentions it to another though, the reaction is likely to be, “I feel the exact same way.”
