Entrepreneurs are never short of people around them willing to give advice, or offer an opinion, whether it is wanted or not. It comes with the territory. However, it can be a little overwhelming and often confusing. The trick is not to listen to those who tell you exactly what to do, and instead to listen to those trusted people who encourage you to make the decisions that you intrinsically know in your heart are the right ones. Surround yourself with people who can help you on your journey to becoming the person and the entrepreneur you aspire to being, and who themselves reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends, confidants and advisors who you are proud to know, people you admire, people whose own entrepreneurial journeys can be respected. Ultimately, the people in your life make all the difference to the person and the entrepreneur you are capable of being. Life is just too short to spend time with people who don’t make a positive and life-affirming difference to you and your journey.
