I later stormed out the house I used to call home and found myself driving back to my home without music, without sound, just me in my own thoughts.

Thoughts were going through my head, anger ensued, and it came to a boiling point where I just began to break down. I couldn’t take this pressure anymore and I had to let it out.

That moment for me, was probably the single greatest moment I’ve had with myself in a long time. Now you’re probably thinking, this guy is a sick bastard, and you’re probably right. I am. But what I realized was that there is beauty in pain. We all go through pain and suffering, but when it happens, we always come out better because of it.

What I realized is that throughout this disagreement:

  • Not once did I ever question myself.
  • Rethink the way my life would have been or should be spent
  • Not once did I have to soul search to find out who I am, what I stand for, and what I believe in

Even though entrepreneurship is lonely. It’s a life I love. I’ve always called entrepreneurship a beautiful disaster, and that’s because to some degree, it is. The highs are high and the lows are low. But when you go through these highs and lows, the universe gives you as much as you can handle before it spits you back out of its vortex.

When we first started this journey, I didn’t have many people that I could go to. In fact, there isn’t many people you can go to. Luckily for me, I have an incredible co-founder that I can bounce ideas of it. I have a great support system of friends that I’ve become close with from the podcast, and I’ve even made friends from their friends.

Entrepreneurship can be lonely, but only if you allow it to be.

We live in this massive world where connectivity is within the palms of our hands. You just have to know how to use it. Some of the best relationships I have in my life right now have stemmed from a random cold email or tweet. Seriously, there’s proof of it on multiple occasions. All in which I’ve talked about.

In closing, if you’re in a place right now, where you may not have that support system. You have a friend in me. Email me directly at johnathan@penji.co. Let’s hold each other accountable. Let’s be friends. I’m here for you.
