In the US, entrepreneurs are only about 1 out of every 12 people, so unless you’re in a unique situation, most of the people you know are NOT business owners. The stats for other countries aren’t much different, either! Most entrepreneurs are alone. You have questions, needs, and challenges that are not shared by anyone in your immediate circle. And, given the business failure rate, it’s even possible that you’re surrounded by more failed (or failing) business owners than by successful ones. Talk about a sad choir singing the background track of your efforts. SAD TROMBONE! What about the other people around you?
