Being an entrepreneur is not an easy task. It is almost like raising a baby. You have to relentlessly go after your business goals and attain milestones to serve them, many times compromising your social life and mental health. Entrepreneurs often cite how putting their business first isolated them in their lives. Human connection and mental health become the least of your priorities when you are working frantically to set up your business. Working online and being your boss is one heck of a way to lead a lonely life, although it comes with a lot of perks.
Loneliness makes your life bleak. Many people confuse loneliness with solitude, but they are two completely different things. Where loneliness gives birth to depression, anxiety and many mental illnesses, solitude is for peace of mind.
Nhut Cao is an entrepreneur who has achieved great success in e-commerce. He is running 6 and 7 figures Amazon product labelled businesses and also owns two e-commerce companies. He has travelled the road to success alone and knows how lonely this journey could be. Just like any other workaholic, he says he isolated himself completely from his environment so he could work on his goals. He became obsessed with everything to deliver the best possible services. He went into self-imposed isolation that consumed him completely when he faced a failure in the early stages of his business. The emotional setback followed months of depression and a feeling of hollowness. This is when he realised the evils of entrepreneurship, the side that is hardly ever discussed.
Apart from running his successful business, he is also an Amazon FBA Mentor and influencer. He provides coaching services to individuals who want to run a successful amazon business from $0 to 6 figures. Being passionate about teaching since his school days, he believes that is his inner calling. It helps him find greater meaning in life and gives him the social interaction he requires along his entrepreneurship journey.
He wants to impact more lives and make it possible for people to sell their products through private labelling and while they are at it, they do not get consumed by the evils of entrepreneurship. While the internet and working online have its benefits, it also comes with the downsides which can be easily avoided once you recognize them. Through his mentoring services, he can just do that and save a lot of people from loneliness.
