Dear Entrepreneur,

You can’t win if you don’t play the game. And by “play,” I don’t mean to play a game or two, here or there. You have to be in the game consistently for a long, long time to win.

There’s no quick fix and there are no shortcuts. If you try to win big with a few quick high-risk bets, there’s a very good chance you’ll lose your shirt, and everything else.

Entrepreneurship is a game of attrition and you have to persevere. It’s a marathon, and not a sprint, and that’s how you have to play it if you want to win.

With love,
