“The greatest challenge of being an entrepreneur is always having to explain yourself. People always say to me… Wait, what is it that you do, again?”
What matters is not the opinions that others have on what you do, but your own. If you see value in the dream, then continue with the dream! You have to be honest with yourself, as the investor, with regards to the true return value of the enterprise. Dream big, as long as it is still worth it.
