The Olympic Deception

We all know intuitively how much blood, sweat and tears went into the performance the athlete delivers at the Olympic games. She trained for years and years, spent every spare minute refining her technique, doing one more round on the track, spent yet another hour in the gym, when everybody else was having a good time.

And yet: Somehow some entrepreneurs think it’s easy. It’s all about luck and the right idea at the right time in the right place.

It is not.

Entrepreneurship is about dedication. Effort. Perseverance. Doing the work. Not giving up. Going through the grind. Putting in that extra hour when everybody else is having a good time.

We are the athletes of the business world. Our startup is Olympia.
