Somewhere along the way, many entrepreneurs forget to have fun with the business. After a while, you might get bogged down with details or you might get burned out. A lot of this happens because entrepreneurs are known for being workaholics.

Too many entrepreneurs focus on the money at the expense of enjoying the process.

If you chose the second one. Then you must keep reading…
If you aren’t having fun in your work, fix the problem before it gets serious. Keep in mind that Fun, profit and excellence go hand in hand.
If you don’t do it excellently, don’t do it at all. Because if it’s not excellent, it won’t be profitable or fun, and if you’re not in business for fun or profit, what the heck are you doing there?”
– Robert Townsend, 20th Century Business Writer.
Don’t make your business venture all about work. Avoid that – Stop FOCUSING on the Wrong Things.
Strive to be happy, but also understand that simply having money will not make you happy.
