How Founders Can Survive Setbacks & Challenges - Guide

What can I tell you founders that you don’t already know about the challenges of being an entrepreneur/founder/ceo? Not very much however knowing how to handle the down side can be immensely liberating.

I have put together this great guide with the help our sponsor, BJ Mannyst + Founders Under 40™ Group, to help you cope and overcome the common setbacks and obstacles.

Only those who strive and desire to succeed could overcome the hardships even when starring into the eyes of death. Those who persevere usually are the biggest winners in the eyes of God.

The thing is life’s journey is never going to be straight line so individual desiring to grow need to accept the growing pains. It’s just God’s way of making you better.

The intensity of it could be like a pinch, punch in the face, bone break, or a knockdown but either you see no way out of it, you give up, or you use it to your advantage is really up to you.

Your emotional state during setbacks and challenges will be your own choice. You can get angry, blame people, become sad, feel loneliness, failure mentality, panic, worry, reality avoidance,fear and so forth. The reality is none of these negative and sometimes healthy emotions will help you move forward. The better you are at managing your feelings the sooner you get out of despair.

A company or individual who stands outs, in the right way, could benefit from their distinction.  However there are chances that such action to differentiate oneself could be costly. However failing not to distinct yourself also can be very costly.

In my personal opinion, why would you want to build a business when you can’t be the superstar among stars? Why would you want to be a boring me too or maybe that’s your thing? In this hyper-competitive world, it can be challenging just to find unique ways to stand out from the crowd.

So I scrambled over the past long weekend to bring this awesome insight that show you whether you  have the characteristic of an outstanding service business.

Founders of SaaS or Service Startups Might Have To Go Back To The Basics

We are all bombarded by mobile apps of all kinds. Inundated by hundreds of thousands of promotions on LinkedIn, on tech websites, business websites, and many sites.  And often, the Saas ads, that we see is of numerous providers that sell something not a whole different from others. In my opinion, modern advertisement just simply overwhelm the senses. All that sponsor post isn’t going entice most people to click on an ad because most people don’t trust ads. Plus, don’t get me started on the endless startups that keep entering crowded markets and selling the same exact same thing. I took a look at Eventbrite and Universe recently and it’s pretty much almost the same thing. The point of all this, I want to help the me-too get back to the basic of SaaS and service if they are not kicking ass yet.

Many Founders and wannabe entrepreneurs desperately want to build sexy companies like SalesForce, Marketo but what they fail to realize is why spend your time, personal funds, angel funds, VC funds building the one billionth SaaS or mobile app or service business in the exact same space as the the TOP 10 in your market?

Why not put in the extra effort to truly distinguish your SaaS and service business from the crowd. One way to start is to get back to service fundamentals. This guide will help founders, saas, sme, smb, and freelancers.

Over the past few weeks, I took some time to study everything possible about the current SaaS world and service world and I will share with you what I took from it and offer some basic tips . We are open to further discussions with SaaS companies or other service oriented companies and possibly be of help. Some tips and insights were inspired by KPMG: Transforming Your SaaS Business guide. And other SaaS resources. P.S. Don’t be afraid to consider us to help your service business, we may just be able to offer you a unique advantage. Consider a TEST DRIVE SERVICE.

Don't Wait For Millennials & Founders To Change The World? - Founders Under 40™ Group

I’m not sure if it’s the state of the world or the uncertainty in social-economic structures or the rapid change in technology…or the way millennials are brought up or if they are too busy screwing each others brains out. I’m starting to think millennials and millennial founders don’t have the back bones to really improve this world.

How Founders Can Create A Sustainable Community & World - Founders Under 40™ Group

If Mr. Elon Musk is not an example of the will of man to create his or her future, I’m not sure what else can demonstrate the proof. The world was either a very chaotic and very divisive world before Donald or somehow he just escalated it. It is sort of like the world went from a dog bite to an anaconda bit. Will it kill us?

Whatever the case or outcome of these turbulent times, I would hope Founders Under 40

Group members and founders around the world would help create more bridges and discourage divisiveness. So I have taking some time to point you to a possible higher purpose. Because chasing ever more money and more stuff is only going to leave you feeling empty if you don’t have something substantial to motivate you.
