No startup becomes successful overnight. Every entrepreneur, whether new or established, must go through a series of steps that involve producing an idea, evaluating it, turning the idea into a plan, finding resources, launching the business, and growing it. This is known as the “Entrepreneurial Process.”
Seeing products and services on Facebook and Instagram makes us believe that the entrepreneurial process must be thrilling and that we can all succeed. What we see as a finished product, however, is only the tip of the iceberg.
