A mentor of mine once advised me to always seek out industries and companies within those industries that are growing: It’s just way more fun to work on growing something than maintaining the status quo or — worse — fighting the decline.
For those of you who are just starting out with your careers and aspire to be an entrepreneur within a company:
Find a company that you’re passionate about that’s growing and be confident in yourself. You have to bet on yourself that you can start at the very bottom of the company and, as it grows, there are going to be opportunities that develop for you as long as you’re working hard and improving yourself.
Always bet on yourself!
