Its easy to get inspired by the success of Fintech founders as published in media (post funding!!!). Its another thing to do the kind of work that they do in the initial phases…

That is the phase….
– when no one trusts them.. Sometimes they themselves doubt their own capabilities..
– when regular 6 / 7 Digit salary turns into a naught and suddenly trips to malls become rare.
– when their families are in perpetual shock…
– when expenses are far beyond revenues (incase there is some)
– when hiring an employee becomes a “Big Achievement”
– when first deal or even first POC is celebrated as if its a Billion Dollar Sale

Its damn difficult out there…. Be ready for the challenges before you take the plunge…
