There are two types of entrepreneurs: the geniuses and the grinders. Which one are you? Steve Jobs was a genius; Mark Cuban is a grinder. Elon Musk is a genius; Ross Perot was a grinder. Bill Gates is a genius; Colonel Sanders was a grinder. The bottom line is they all built billion dollar businesses and lasting legacies. Most of us are grinders, fighting the good fight, day in and day out. We struggle, we fail, and we fall. And just when the world has written us off, we come back. We silence our critics and shock the doubters that write us off as failures. And then we spend the rest of our lives bathing in the glory of victory. While every entrepreneur prays for overnight success, it usually breeds arrogance. The longer, tougher and more brutal the struggle, the sweeter and more satisfying the victory. Watch this short video for more on this critical distinction.
