The Rise To The Top: Entertaining, Energizing and Empowering Entrepreneurs

Friday At 5 PM: The Entrepreneurial Test

Urban legend (or is it Silicon Valley legend?) states that venture capitalists after investing in a company would regularly check in around 5 PM on Friday to see what the entrepreneurs were up to. This sometimes came in the form of a random phone call or the dreaded drop by when the people who bankrolled your company come rolling up (I’m picturing three venture capitalists on a Segway with huge helmets..picture it…smile).

Why? They wanted to see if the entrepreneurs were busting their butt instead of packing things in early for the weekend.

When you are an entrepreneur, you are your boss. And driven by passion, a need to get things done, and huge goals sometimes sacrifices need to be made and it may be your precious Friday nights. It may not be glamorous work that needs to be done, but in the end it will all be worth it.

I’m writing this currently at 10 PM on a Friday night. Most people my age are probably out having some drinks, but I’m getting a bit of work done. Do I have to? Nope. Do I do work on Friday nights often? Nope. Do I want to? Absolutely.

A few Friday nights sacrificed now and then seems like a small price to pay for a lifetime of infinite entrepreneurial possibilities and truly following your passion.
