There's no such thing as a quick fix in entrepreneurship

As entrepreneurs, we are often focused on acheiving the next big goal and working out how quickly we can get there, or the next big challenge and how quickly we can find a solution, but the fact is that there are no quick fixes in entrepreneurship. As the old adage goes, it’s a journey not a destination. I was reminded of this again when I was reading a great interview with the highly successful US entrepreneur, Tory Burch, who said: “We may live in an age of instant messaging, instant gratification, and Instagram, but there is no way to short circuit the path to success. It takes hard work, tenacity and patience.” How true!
