[Shark Tank] Thoughts on S8E6

In Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 6, there was a war that broke out between Mr. Wonderful and pretty much the rest of the Sharks. At one point, Mark Cuban pointed out that “I would rather work 80 hours a week to make 50k and work for myself, than have a 75-100 thousand dollar job working for somebody else.” That struck my chord so hard.

I could really relate to Mark in this sense because I was raised in the startup scene. Ever since I was 16, I was running all kinds of startups, and this I believe is the life I want to pursue. Tried a corporate for a part-time, couldn’t take it for 2 weeks. I decided at that time that it was the time for me to start out on my own, so I felt that it would be nice to run a startup for myself. Indeed, the initial days were tough, but I enjoyed the grind and the eventual rewards. I know I would never get these rewards if I were to go into a corporate career.

I encourage many young people who want to start their own business to take that leap of faith to do so. Don’t hesitate further. But you need to be very clear of your intentions. It’s not going to make you a quick buck, but it sure is and always be one hell of a rewarding ride.

Also, if you want to watch the video, I have made a link to the YouTube version (opens in new tab). Enjoy!
