The Fucking Incomplete Advice for Budding Entrepreneurs

Be offended: Explicit language. 

Oh, fuck you! You’d thought it was going to be easy. You’re getting all steamy with your fucking awesome idea. Your once-fucking awesome life is taking a deep and your fucking mentor didn’t tell you. Boohoo! Read on and know what you are really getting into.

1. You’d better have loads of fucking passion to fuel your (presumably) fucking brilliant idea.

2. Most of the fucking lessons will be learnt on the job. Yes, you've read the entire Amazon bestseller books on entrepreneurship and your fucking MBA brain oozes with confidence. Sorry to break it like this: the real learning is on the fucking journey!

3. Running a business is not for the fucking faint-hearted. Keep it fucking close to your heart that there are only a few fucking believers in the business hole. There will be fucking endless days and nights when you'd feel like the world is deliberating conspiring against your fucking ambition. Count terrible clients, cynical reviewers, slacking team members, knotty legal matters, debts & other inexhaustible matters that will threaten your humanity & question if you're fucking prepared for this.

4. Get your fucking health in order. Yes, every form of pleasure will seem like a distraction but hey, fucking take good care of your health. Or die trying.

5. Sharpen your fucking spontaneity skills. On this journey, you're eternally fucked with situations that require fucking instant and clever decisions. Even worst, your fucking brilliant co-founder won't be there to be the ever-reliant support or she would have lost her mojo, only there to add to the numbers of gazes that question your fucking reputation.

6. Don’t ever delude yourself that your co-founder (if any) will be as fucking committed as you. Passionate partners are hard to find. And if the fucking cosmos has blessed you with one, you’d better fucking appreciate it with your blood.

7. Speaking of co-founders, you’re NOT co-founding with them alone, at least not literally. The other unseen hands are their families, friends, exes, lovers etc. e.g. If a co-founder has a nagging, insecure, paranoid, control-freak for a girlfriend (or boyfriend), sorry, consider yourself mega-fucked. This in itself can delay your pursuit of greatness in a million mile. You either know how to manage it or get another co-founder with, hopefully, minimal level of family or relationship issues. And that’s not ruling out your own fucking personal relationship drama.

8. Blow your fucking trumpet, if you have the chance. Turn little victories into PR opportunities. This is not a fucking license to become a fucking egotistical douchebag. Blow with tact. Any missed chance hardly comes again.

9. If you’re not fucking failing, you’re not fucking trying enough. You see, you’re going to fucking face shit and the best for you is to learn from missteps. Learn from mistakes and carry on. Failure will test your willpower so fucking brazen up, rise after every fucking stumble.

10. Damn it, take fucking risk. What have you got to fucking lose? After all, you’re already vulnerable. The world isn’t expecting much from you. So take a fucking chance and make bold steps. Defile logic and let your fucking intuition guide you.
