I am not sure entrepreneurship is for me :\
Hi all, my first post.
Long story short, I am PLANNING a business on Amazon FBA and I just can't feel motivated to go ahead with it (keep planning and then operating it). When I started the planning, I was super excited, but as time passed I just seem to have lost my interest. Now I have to force myself to actually do something, it feels like a job you don't like and would rather quit.
I am not sure if the whole business thing is for me.. I tried opening a business long time ago, but I realised I just wanted to try myself out and I had no technical knowledge of finance, etc, then I got a good job offer and took it. 8 years have passed, I worked in finance, so now I have all the technical knowledge to open the business, but I just don't seem to have the motivation.
Also, it seems that I can't to work for someone, I'm not good at careers in companies and now it also seems I am not good at doing business on my own.
Can you guys relate? Do you feel motivated all the time? Or you have these times when doing business feels like a job you don't like?
As additional info, I was never the hustler type, I never sold anything to anyone, like 2nd hand stuff on Ebay for example.
And for last, a self-experiment: If you gave me 3 million USD I would just invest the money in ETFs and other safe vehicles and live of those returns for the rest of my life. I definitely wouldn't use that money to start a business. See no point to risk a sure security of that cash to open a business for.. what? Make more cash? But I would already have it! why bother?
What would you do with 3 million?
Thanks for reading,
